Hormone Therapy Q & A

Simi Obstetrics & Gynecology Medical Group

Why would a woman need hormone therapy?

Hormones require a delicate balance to perform their proper functions. If that balance is disrupted, the only way to improve your health is to restore it.

Many factors can affect the balance of female hormones. Hormone therapy involves replacing the missing hormones to restore that balance and improve overall health and wellness.

Most commonly, women need hormone therapy when experiencing:

  • Problems with menstruation
  • Infertility
  • Menopause symptoms

Uncomfortable menopause symptoms are the most common reason for women to request hormone therapy.

Is hormone therapy safe?

Yes, hormone therapy is safe, but only when monitored and administered correctly.

Women need to make choices for their hormone replacement based on their health factors and personal risks.

The doctors at Simi Obstetrics and Gynecology Medical Group help you determine if hormone therapy is right for you. If hormone therapy is the right choice, the medical team enables you to choose the proper medications to reduce the risks and improve your overall quality of life.

Does everyone need hormone replacement during menopause?

No. Some women have minimal menopause symptoms, and others can manage their symptoms with lifestyle modification.

Your physician at Simi Obstetrics and Gynecology Medical Group can help you determine if hormone replacement could help manage your symptoms.

How can an OB/GYN help with hormone therapy?

An OB/GYN is an expert at the way the female body and its hormones work. If you want to ensure that these medications are effective and your risks from taking them are minimal, you need to work with a qualified OB/GYN.

If you're considering hormone replacement therapy to manage your menopause or other health symptoms, make an appointment with Simi Obstetrics and Gynecology Medical Group to speak with a caring OB/GYN about your needs.
