Hormone Replacement Therapy for Women

Feel the energy, vitality, and optimism of your youth.

Our Locations

Are you experiencing fatigue, hot flashes, decreased sex drive, weight gain, mood changes, and/or irritability? These are just some of the symptoms of hormonal imbalances, and if this relates to you, hormone replacement therapy can help.

Vitality, energy, optimism, and a strong sex drive are all characteristics of youthfulness. Of course, these are directly related to optimal female hormone levels.

Unfortunately, as women age, hormones begin to decline. Once a woman hits a certain age, usually within a few years of 51 years old, she goes through menopause. At this time, the production of sex hormones such as estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone stops. This leads to several negative symptoms, which include:

  • Hot flashes
  • Insomnia
  • Vaginal Dryness
  • Decreased Sex Drive
  • Depression / Anxiety
  • Brain Fog
  • Facial Hair
  • Hair Loss
  • Osteoporosis
  • Increased Body Fat
  • Night Sweats
  • Irritability
  • Mood Swings
  • Painful Intercourse
  • Fatigue
  • Frequent Urinary Tract Infections
  • Joint Aches
  • Thinning Skin
  • Migraines

Likewise, pre-menopausal women, women who are still menstruating and have not yet gone through menopause, can begin to exhibit symptoms of hormone imbalance as they age. These can be very similar, though usually not as severe as menopausal symptoms. The signs and symptoms of hormonal imbalance include:

  • Fatigue
  • Insomnia
  • Brain Fog
  • Severe PMS
  • Migraines
  • Decreased Sex Drive
  • Anxiety / Depression
  • Irritability
  • Increased Body Fat
  • Thinning Skin

The good news is that it doesn’t have to be this way! Though many patients and physicians often accept these conditions as “normal”, we can treat all of these symptoms safely and effectively using hormone replacement therapy.

What are “Normal” Hormone Levels?

There are numerous hormones produced in the body and they all interact with each other and provide feedback loops. This means that a lower level of one hormone will affect the levels of other hormones. For example, low testosterone may increase cortisol, a stress hormone. Ideally, we do not want elevated cortisol levels.

To measure your health, medicine has thus established “normal” levels for the various hormones in your body. Unfortunately, what many physicians deem to be “normal” levels are not the same as what anti-aging physicians consider optimal. Optimal hormone levels provide an ideal environment for your cells and your body to function to the fullest. 

To compare, if a 50-year-old woman sees an eye doctor for worsening eyesight, the doctor doesn’t tell her this is “normal” for her age. Instead, the doctor prescribes glasses! Why wouldn’t we do the same for a woman with low hormone levels?

At Mygenics, safety is paramount and our goal is to optimize your levels with hormone replacement therapy so you feel youthful and remain healthy.

What to Expect with Hormone Replacement Therapy?

At Mygenics, hormone replacement therapy begins with a simple in-office blood draw. Once we analyze your hormone levels, we provide a unique bioidentical hormone replacement therapy program. These bioidentical hormones come from natural plant sources and are chemically identical to the hormones produced by the female body. 

Our hormone therapy can be with creams, capsules, injections, pellets, or a combination of the above depending on patient preference. Some of the hormones that we analyze and treat include testosterone, progesterone, estrogen, DHEA.


Testosterone production, like estrogen and progesterone, occurs primarily in the ovaries with residual amounts produced by the adrenal glands. Also like estrogen and progesterone, testosterone levels decrease as women age and decline drastically after menopause.

Testosterone is almost exclusively thought of as a male hormone, just as estrogen is often considered exclusively a female hormone. With that said, it surprises many women to learn that testosterone occurs naturally in women, just at lower levels than in men.

Testosterone plays the same role in women as it does in men, and benefits include:

  • Increased Sex Drive
  • Improved Cognitive Function
  • Improved Mood
  • Improved Energy
  • Maintenance of Muscle Mass
  • Decreased Fat Mass

At Mygenics we recognize the importance of optimal testosterone levels in women for optimal health and quality of life. Many women, once started on testosterone replacement therapy, find that they enjoy the improved quality of life and sexual health!

We provide testosterone for women as a cream, pellet, or injection.


Progesterone production, like estrogen, occurs primarily in the ovaries with residual amounts produced by the adrenal glands. Like estrogen, progesterone is largely absent after menopause.

Progesterone’s primary physiologic roles are to counter-balance estrogen, help regulate the menstrual cycle in pre-menopausal menstruating women, and maintain the uterine lining during pregnancy.

Progesterone is also a natural sedative and anxiolytic (anxiety reducer) and helps facilitate sleep. Additionally, progesterone has a secondary role in relieving the vasomotor symptoms (hot flashes and night sweats) of menopause.

Signs and symptoms of sub-optimal progesterone levels may include:

  • Insomnia
  • Anxiety
  • Night Sweats
  • Heavy Menstrual Bleeding
  • Irritability
  • Hot Flashes
  • Irregular Menstrual Periods
  • Severe PMS

Due to progesterone’s primary role of counter-balancing estrogen, any woman with an intact uterus who is on estrogen MUST be on progesterone also due to the increased risk of uterine cancer in women on estrogen therapy only.


Estrogen is the main sex steroid in women and controls over 400 functions in the female body. It is essential for a woman’s health. 

There are 3 different estrogens: E1, E2, and E3. E2 is the estrogen primarily responsible for estrogenic effects in the female body.

In addition to regulating the menstrual cycle, estrogen is essential for:

  • Reproductive Health
  • Maintaining Vaginal Tissues and Lubrication
  • Cardiovascular Health
  • Bone Health
  • Healthy Skin and Hair
  • Brain Function
  • Urinary Tract Health

The ovaries are primarily responsible for estrogen production, with residual amounts produced by the adrenal glands and in fat cells.

Decreased or absent estrogen is primarily responsible for the signs and symptoms of menopause. At Mygenics we replace estrogen to optimal levels for optimal health and quality of life.


DHEA, or dehydroepiandrosterone, is a hormone produced in the adrenal glands that lie just above and adjacent to the kidneys. DHEA is a precursor hormone, meaning the body uses it to produce other sex hormones such as estrogen and testosterone.

As with other hormones, DHEA levels peak in your 20’s and then decline slowly as you age. DHEA has been linked with:

  • Longevity
  • Improved Muscle Mass
  • Improved Sex Drive
  • Improved Immune System Function
  • Improved Cognitive Function
  • Improved Depressive Symptoms
  • Maintaining Bone Density

At Mygenics, we test DHEA during our initial evaluation with a simple blood test. We then provide DHEA as an oral capsule, or in cream form combined with other hormones.
