Why do I need hormone replacement therapy?

Hormone replacement is designed to help you feel better and more energized when conditions like menopause throw off your body's natural balance. Bioidentical hormones (similar to the hormones made in your body) can restore your sex drive, increase muscle mass, reduce body fat, give you healthier skin and hair, and more based on your needs and symptoms.

Are hormone pellets safe?

Hormone replacement therapy is proven to be safe for the right candidates. However, like all medical treatments, there are some risks and side effects involved. During a consultation with Dr. Phillips, we can review your current symptoms and make sure you're a good candidate for treatment. We can also determine if the benefits outweigh the dangers in your particular situation.

How do hormone pellets work?

Dr. Phillips creates tailored treatment plans for each of our patients. In most cases, we administer small pellets near the upper buttock area. This process should not cause any pain, and you can resume daily activities after your appointment. However, it's best to avoid strenuous workouts and hot tubs until you have been cleared by our team.

Patients do need a little time to adjust to hormone replacement therapy. In the beginning, you may experience several side effects before you begin to feel better. This is why it's so important for you to meet with our team at Ageless Grace before starting your treatment plan in Murrieta, CA. We can let you know what to expect and discuss your potential results.

When do I need to return for follow-up treatment?

Patients should begin to notice the benefits of bioidentical hormones 3 – 6 months after their initial appointment. Because each plan is unique, you may need to return for a follow-up within a few months. Patients who notice returning symptoms from menopause or other conditions should call our office right away. We can make adjustments to your treatment plan and ensure your benefits are long-lasting.
