What Results Can you Expect from Hormone Replacement Therapy.
At Gentle Giant Care, We offer HRT-Hormone Replacement Therapy in Metro Atlanta. When Starting your HRT Treatments your body will probably change physically, mentally, emotionally, and sexually. You may even feel more confident along the way! While the results will differ from person to person, here’s what you can expect from your hormone replacement therapy.
Depending on which hormone you take and your dosage, you can expect to start noticing changes within the first couple weeks or months. For some patients on bioidentical progesterone or estrogen treatments, results can be noticed in as little as 2 weeks.
You will likely see relief in frustrating symptoms of menopause, but it may take longer than you’d like. Women have reported improved sleep, less joint pain, better mood, and recovered concentration. Additionally, they have more energy, fewer hot flashes, and reversal in the changes around their vagina related to dryness and discomfort during sex.
For men, there is much more extensive research available on testosterone therapy’s effectiveness and when you can start to see results.
Testosterone Treatments Timeline For Men:
3 Weeks: After the first few weeks, you’ll notice a dramatic increase in sexual interest. This typically plateaus around 6 weeks. You will also notice an improvement in quality of life.
6 Weeks: Symptoms of depression will start to dissipate starting at the six-week point and will continue to improve. You may experience less joint pain and better blood work, as inflammation will start to decrease.
3 Months: Blood circulation will improve, which leads to better erections. Changes in fat mass, lean body, mass, and muscle strength will become noticeable. These will continue to improve for years. If you have diabetes, you may notice an improvement in glycemic control around this time.
6 months: Your bones will begin to strengthen. This will continue for 3 years and beyond! For more information on HRT, visit our Hormone Replacement Therapy page.
Symptoms will be person-specific and can vary greatly. How you experience the treatment may be different than anyone else you talk to. Your doctor will be able to tell you what’s in the realm of “normal” and whether or not you need to make changes or be concerned.
