Hormone Replacement Therapy Q&A

What is hormone replacement therapy?

Hormone replacement therapy (HRT) is a treatment that works to supplement your body’s natural hormone production. 


Some options contain only estrogen, and some contain a blend of estrogen and progesterone. There are even options that contain testosterone, a hormone produced in large volumes in men. 


The primary application of HRT is to treat symptoms of menopause. While some women have very few symptoms that are mild in nature, others experience an absolute sea change in the way their bodies function as they move through menopause. 

Hormone replacement therapy offers a path to relief and can help you feel more at home in your body. It can take a period of trial and error to find the right HRT balance. 

What kinds of hormone replacement therapy are available?

Hormone replacement therapy comes in many different forms, and Antheia Gynecology works with you to find the right options for your specific set of needs. Some of the available delivery methods include:

  • Patches
  • Pills
  • Creams or gels
  • Sprays
  • Vaginal rings
  • Vaginal tablets

Bioidentical hormones are those that share the same chemical composition as the hormones your body produces naturally. They are from plant sources and are a good option for women who want HRT that does not come from animal products. 

Antheia Gynecology uses only FDA-approved products for hormone replacement therapy. All options have gone through rigorous research and clinical trials to ensure safe and effective outcomes. 

How do I know if HRT is right for me?

Hormone replacement therapy is a wonderful treatment option for many women, but it isn’t right for everyone. If you have a history of any of the following conditions, be sure to share that information with your doctor.


  • Blood clots
  • Stroke
  • Breast, endometrial, or uterine cancer
  • Heart attack
  • Liver disease


You should also discuss any plans you have for pregnancy before beginning HRT. If your doctor determines you are not a good candidate, she discusses the details of other treatment options to help you make an informed decision about your care.
