What Is Hormone Replacement Therapy?

Why You Should Consider Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy?Your hormones control your body’s basic functions. But if those hormones aren’t at the right levels, that can cause a variety of problems. At Revive Wellness Group in Gibsonburg, OH, our bioidentical hormone replacement therapy can provide you with exactly what you need to feel like yourself again.

What Is Hormone Replacement Therapy?

There are lots of reasons why you may not feel your best, or why you may be experiencing a range of symptoms. If there doesn’t seem to be a physical explanation for why you feel the way you do, however, then you might have a hormonal imbalance.

Hormonal imbalances can be very difficult to deal with, and there are several reasons why you may be experiencing them. Many medical conditions like diabetes and hyperthyroidism can cause major fluctuations in your hormones. The simple process of aging can also cause an imbalance. If you have hormonal imbalances, then hormone replacement therapy or HRT can help you manage your symptoms and live a happy, healthy life again.

What Is Hormone Replacement Therapy?

At our clinic, we use bioidentical hormone replacement therapy. Bioidentical hormones are designed to have the same structure as the ones naturally in your body. This treatment provides you with a super safe and effective way to manage any hormonal imbalances you may be experiencing.

Treatment is fast, effective, and there is generally no downtime required after your treatment. Over the next few weeks after your initial treatment, you should see an improvement in your symptoms. Over the following months, you’ll see even more significant changes.

What Does HRT Treat?

Whether your hormone imbalances are caused by aging or by a medical condition, HRT can help you feel like your very best again. Dr. Wilson-Sobb and her team specialize in sexual wellness, and our HRT treatments offer a particularly effective way to treat these types of concerns.

In the past, society used to believe that a decrease in libido was an inevitable part of getting older. But today, our research is a little better. We now know that it’s completely possible to have an active and healthy sex life even in old age. If you have experienced a drop in libido due to aging, then our bioidentical hormone treatments can help you enjoy a sex life again.

Symptoms of a Hormonal Imbalance

While we specialize in our patients’ sexual health and wellness, there are many other things that HRT can help treat. A decrease in libido is a major sign of an issue with your hormonal levels, but it’s not the only symptom you may experience if you have a hormonal imbalance.

The following is a non-exhaustive list of other symptoms that could indicate you might have a hormonal imbalance.

Difficulty Sleeping

Everyone has a hard time falling or staying asleep every once in a while. But there’s a difference between having a difficult time sleeping on occasion and constantly struggling to fall asleep and stay asleep.

One of the major things that your hormones are in control of is your sleep cycle. If you have an imbalance in your hormones, then a difficult time sleeping could be a symptom of that.


If you feel a little bit tired after an especially busy day, that’s completely natural. But if you’re constantly feeling tired and it’s hard to get your energy levels back up, then you might be experiencing fatigue.

Feeling fatigued constantly can be extremely frustrating and feel like an insurmountable impediment in your life. If you are feeling consistently fatigued, then HRT could help you balance out your hormones and help you feel lively and alert again.

Hot Flashes

This is one of the most common symptoms that women in menopause experience. It refers to a feeling of sudden heat combined with possible redness in the face and sweating. Hot flashes can be very uncomfortable.

There are plenty of ways to help manage your hot flashes, including wearing light layers that are easy to remove and staying hydrated. But getting HRT can help you prevent these hot flashes from happening in the first place.

Weight Changes

One of the things that your hormones are in control of is your metabolism. Hormones like insulin and lectin help regulate your metabolism and keep you at a steady weight. While it’s normal to see minor changes to your weight, even within the same day as you eat and drink water, significant changes in short periods could indicate a problem.

Getting HRT will help balance out those important hormones in charge of regulating your metabolism. This will help you feel better and stay at a healthier, steady weight.

Mood Swings

You’ve probably noticed your mood change throughout the day. It’s normal to feel happy one moment and then frustrated the next if something isn’t going your way. But if you’re noticing drastic changes to your mood with no apparent reason why that can be really challenging for yourself as well as the people around you.

There are several hormones that are in charge of regulating your mood, including serotonin and dopamine. If your hormones aren’t at the right levels, then you could experience some pretty intense mood swings. HRT will help stabilize your mood and help you feel your best again.


More than just feeling a little bit sad, depression can have a huge impact on your quality of life. You may feel perpetually down, blue, hopeless, or helpless. Depression also has the potential to be very dangerous depending on the severity.

If your depression is caused by an imbalance in your hormones, HRT can help you feel better and get your life back, allowing you to feel happy and fulfilled again.


It’s normal to feel anxious once in a while. A big event coming up, or a major life change can trigger feelings of stress. But if you’re feeling very anxious all the time, then there could be a hormonal issue causing your anxiety.

Anxiety can have a major impact on your life. It can be hard to do the things you love when you constantly feel worried. HRT can help balance your hormones and help you feel calm again.

Brain Fog

Have you noticed that it’s more and more difficult for you to remember information or perform difficult cognitive tasks? Brain fog can be a confusing and challenging side effect of hormonal imbalances.

If you’re struggling to focus and experiencing brain fog, then HRT can provide you with an effective way to clear your mind and focus again.

Who Is a Candidate?

Both men and women can be affected by hormonal issues caused by aging or medical conditions. If you’re experiencing the symptoms of a hormonal imbalance and you’re looking for a way to feel your best again, then HRT might be the perfect solution for you.

When you come to our clinic, we’ll hold a consultation with you to discuss what the best treatment options for your concerns are and make sure that this treatment is right for you.
