Hormones are responsible for many of the body’s most important functions. When your hormone levels are low, it can have an impact in many different areas of your health. Hormone management and replacement is an effective way to restore your hormone levels and put you at your best health.
Hormone management, or hormone replacement therapy, is a medical treatment that involves reintroducing biocompatible hormones into the body to supplement low levels of hormones like estrogen or testosterone. Many people experience low hormone levels as they age (especially women during menopause) but some people can have genetic conditions that cause low hormone levels.
Low hormone levels can negatively impact your body in many different ways, including:
- Low energy and fatigue
- Decreased libido
- Vaginal dryness
- Erectile dysfunction
- Depression and anxiety
- Hot flashes
- Difficulty with concentration or memory
- Loss of muscle or bone mass

Hormone replacement therapy is a long-term process, but your urologist can help at every step.
