What Does Hormone Replacement Do?
Hormone replacement therapy helps patients rejuvenate themselves when they’re feeling the many adverse effects of aging. It traditionally has been used to help women who are struggling with the symptoms of menopause. However, hormone therapy can also help men restore their vigor, energy, and muscle function by supplementing naturally occurring hormones.

How Does Hormone Replacement Work?
First, you’ll visit a practitioner at The Fountain Clinic in Rocky River for a consultation to explain your concerns and talk more about the therapy, including any risks. The next step is a hormone evaluation lab panel, which will tell your doctor if you’re a candidate for this program. At the next appointment, your doctor will consult with you about your results and do a thorough physical, which will include an EKG. Once you pass your physical, you’ll receive a prescription for the hormones to take as suggested by your doctor.

Why Should You Choose Hormone Replacement Therapy?
Here are a few reasons why you might want to consider hormone replacement therapy:

  • You're feeling tired or fatigued often and need more energy.
  • You're a woman going through menopause, experiencing hot flashes and mood swings.
  • You want to lower your risk of osteoporosis (may improve bone density).
  • You’re a man interested in improving libido or reproductive ability.
  • You have concerns about aging skin or lack of muscle tone.
