What is Hormone Replacement Therapy?
HRT therapy is used to replace natural hormones in men and women with reduced testosterone, progesterone, and/or estrogen levels. Hormone levels in men and women can be depleted due to factors such as aging, menopause, and thyroid disease. HRT for women may contain estrogen, progesterone and/or testosterone. HRT for men usually only contains testosterone and a possible estrogen blocker. We offer a variety of HRT treatments to meet your needs available in the form of tablets, injections, creams, and gels.
Why is HRT Important?
Hormones, particularly testosterone and estrogen, contribute to many bodily processes and functions including mood, reproduction, growth, sexual function, and metabolism. The reduction of these hormone levels in men and women can affect mood, energy, and vitality, and increase the risk for some serious health problems. Women with low estrogen levels are at a higher risk for osteoporosis, while men with low testosterone levels have an increased risk of erectile dysfunction, coronary artery disease, and even type 2 diabetes. Both men and women with declined hormone levels also commonly suffer from depression, fatigue, loss of sexual libido, and weight gain.
HRT can help improve your quality of life and get back to leading a happy, healthy, fulfilling life.
What are Common Symptoms of Low Hormone Levels?
Reduced Hormone Levels in Men
A reduction in testosterone in men commonly occurs due to factors such as aging, obesity, low thyroid function, and certain underlying medical conditions. Andropause is a term commonly used to describe reduced testosterone production in older men. A simple blood test can quantify your existing hormone levels for our experienced providers to develop a personalized HRT plan that is right for you.
Men with low hormone levels may experience:
- Loss of muscle size and strength
- Increased body fat
- Reduced sex drive
- Erectile dysfunction
- Increased breast size
- Hot flashes
- Problems with concentration
Menopause is the most common cause of low hormone levels in women. Most women begin the transition in their mid to late 40s. There are three distinct stages in the transition for women: perimenopause, menopause and postmeopause. Perimenopause refers to the transition leading to menopause, while postmenopause occurs when menstrual periods have stopped completely.
Women with hormonal imbalances may experience:
- Irregular or missed menstrual periods
- Heavy bleeding during periods
- Spotting between periods
- Menstrual periods that last longer than one week
- Hot flashes
- Night sweats
- Vaginal dryness
- Pain during sexual intercourse
- Reduced sex drive
- Mood swings
- Weight gain
- Cognitive decline

At Nouveau Health and Wellness, we offer many different types of HRT available to treat various hormone conditions. Your provider will work with you one-on-one to develop an individualized treatment plan that works best for you based on your unique health situation, needs, and desired outcome. The different types of hormones you receive in HRT will depend largely on the root cause of your hormonal imbalance.
Bioidentical Hormone Therapy (BHRT)
Bioidentical hormones mimic the hormones that are naturally produced by the body to renew your vitality more effectively than synthetic hormones. BHRT has shown to produce fewer side effects than synthetic HRT and can be individualized for each patient to supply the exact needed dose of hormones. Benefits of BHRT include increased sex drive, reduced fatigue, improved sleep, and improved memory and concentration.
For men, Testosterone Therapy can increase testosterone levels to help men benefit from higher energy levels, higher sex drive, better sleep, mood enhancement, and increased strength and muscle mass.
A customized therapy that helps each patient counteract symptoms associated with the natural aging process. Having a sluggish thyroid is common, and can lead to fatigue, low energy, thinning hair, muscle aches, and depression which can be addressed and improved with thyroid therapy.
