Hormone Replacement Therapy For Women Q & A

What is hormone replacement therapy for women?

Hormone replacement therapy for women is a treatment during which you take the hormones estrogen, progestin (a synthetic form of progesterone), or both in order to lower symptoms of menopause. You may also need testosterone hormone replacement as its production declines with age too.

You get symptoms leading up to and after menopause because your sex hormones, estrogen and progesterone, fluctuate a lot and drop when your ovaries stop making as much as before. 

The loss of estrogen and progesterone has such an influence on your well-being because those hormones, and many others in your body, play important roles in functions like regulating your mood, sleep, metabolism, and vaginal health. 

At the Center for Wellness and Hormonal Balance, Dr. Revilla helps you decide which type of hormones you should take and how you should take them. He supervises you as you take the lowest possible dose of hormones for as little time as possible to experience relief from your symptoms. 

What are the benefits of hormone replacement therapy for women?

Taking hormones as you transition into menopause can relieve a multitude of symptoms that tend to come with the change. Along with reducing symptoms like hot flashes and night sweats, hormone replacement therapy for women can:


  • Improve sleep
  • Regulate mood
  • Improve vaginal lubrication
  • Lower the risk of heart attack and diabetes
  • Reduce or reverse osteoporosis
  • Reduce breast cancer risk
  • Improve sexual performance and libido
  • Improve skin health and hydration


For some women, the symptoms that come with the transition into menopause aren’t enough to affect day-to-day life and satisfaction. If your symptoms are starting to have a large impact on your overall well-being, Dr. Revilla can help you decide if hormone replacement therapy is the right choice for you. 

How do I take my hormones?

Dr. Revilla offers BioTE® bioidentical hormones in the form of pellets. During a minor in-office procedure, he makes a small incision under your skin and implants the pellet. The pellet gradually and consistently releases hormones, which are absorbed directly into your bloodstream. A single pellet can last for 3-5 months.

Hormone pellets have a number of benefits over other hormone replacement options. You don’t need to visit the Center for Wellness and Hormonal Balance regularly for injections throughout the year or take a pill every day. Instead, you can visit just 3-4 times for pellet placement. You also don’t need to apply a cream to your skin daily or worry about transferring it onto others.
