Signs You Might Need Hormone Therapy

It’s normal for people to undergo changes in their body as they age but depending on the extent and the symptoms that can result, this doesn’t need to be something you have to live with if it brings you discomfort, both mentally and physically. Depending on the signs and symptoms, you may be an ideal candidate for hormone therapy.

Hormone therapy helps resolve hormonal imbalances by identifying deficiencies and then administering hormone replacements to remedy the lack. Here are some signs and symptoms that may indicate hormone therapy may be the right choice for you:

Mood Changes
Deficient hormones can drastically change one’s mood, making someone typically cheery into someone with huge mood swings, as well as causing depression and anxiety. While having moments of irritability or sadness isn’t uncommon with people of any age, extreme irritability or extensive changes in mood that are noticed by you and the people around you may be a sign of something far more serious.

Decreased Libido
Getting older is no reason not to enjoy a rich and fulfilling sex life. It is oftentimes a lack of hormones that are the reason why one’s libido is no longer what it once was. A waning sex drive can be natural, but a severe and drastic drop in one’s sex drive can often be explained by lower hormone levels.

Physical Symptoms
If you are experiencing fatigue, metabolism issues, erectile dysfunction, or a host of other symptoms it may be due to a deficiency in your hormones. If your routine hasn’t changed but you’re feeling tired more often, or having trouble sleeping, this doesn’t necessarily mean you’re getting old, especially if these symptoms happen suddenly! This is potentially a sign that you need to look at your hormones. Physical symptoms are the easiest ones to spot, so don’t ignore them or pass them off as natural. It may be a sign of something more serious.
