Hormone Replacement

Is Hormone Replacement Therapy right for you?

Hormones are the chemical messengers of your body. They travel through the bloodstream to your tissues and your organs.  Over time they can affect many of the body’s processes including metabolism, mood, fertility and sexual function.

Women’s BHRT and Wellness

As we age, hormone levels fluctuate causing many of the changes associated with aging.  Some of these symptoms can be minimized or eliminated by restoring balance through the use of Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT).  Common complaints include:

  • Hot Flashes & Night Sweats
  • Mood Swings
  • Fatigue
  • Weight Gain
  • Low Libido
  • Bone Loss and Osteoporosis
  • Breast Tenderness
  • Migraine Headaches

Hormone replacement therapy remains the most effective treatment for the symptoms associated with menopause. Our physician will meet with you to clearly understand your symptoms then do a focused exam and comprehensive hormone testing.  Treatment will be tailored to each individual’s unique needs.  To determine if it’s right for you, please contact us to schedule a consultation with Dr. Villarreal.

Men’s Sexual Health and Wellness

1 in 4 men over 30 have low testosterone levels, potentially leading to sexual dysfunction, weight gain, and decreased energy.  Common symptoms of low T include:

  • Fatigue or Decreased Energy Levels
  • Mood Swings or Depression
  • Weight Gain
  • Loss of Muscle Mass
  • Low Libido
  • Trouble Getting or Maintaining an Erection

Frequently, low testosterone is a result of many different factors, including medications, lifestyle habits, or possibly undiagnosed disease.  Effective treatment begins with a comprehensive exam and laboratory testing.  Multiple treatment options are available.

Erectile Dysfunction is more common than most men realize.  ED affects approximately 40% of men in their 40’s and 50% of men in their 50’s.  One in four young men under the age of 40 suffer with ED.  Viagra, Cialis, and Levitra are commonly prescribed for ED but these medications frequently do not work for all men.  Other options are now available.  Evaluation and treatment is private and professional.  Call for further information or to schedule a consultation with Dr. Villarreal.
