Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT)

Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT)

  • Bioidentical hormones are produced by plants and mimic the hormones produced by the body. They are a safer alternative to synthetic hormones since they work in the exact same way as the body’s own hormones. They control the side effects of aging such as loss of energy, sexual dysfunction, weight gain, decreased mood, and more.

  • The process to get started with HRT is simple. First, a lab is required so that the Provider has a clear picture of your hormone levels. Then, you have a one-on-one consultation to review health goals, so that the Provider can determine which HRT program would provide the best results.

  • Combining medications like HCG and anastrozole with injectable testosterone provides the best results for patients while decreasing the likelihood of side effects. HCG maintains testicular health & anastrozole reduces side effects such as water retention and acne that can occur with testosterone.

  • TCore20™ is designed to be a 20 week program because we have found this to be the optimal time for life-changing results. Many patients will start to see changes after 2-4 weeks because it takes hormones some time to return to a normal range within the body.

  • Unfortunately, insurance generally covers testosterone only and does not include the other medications or supplements required for optimal results. Also, insurance does not usually cover HRT when it is self-administered.

  • Generally, there are no side effects with bioidentical hormones if used properly. The most common side effects that could occur are acne or water retention. These usually occur with rising estrogen levels, which can be easily corrected with a change in anastrozole dosage.
