The Role of Female Hormones

Female hormones, including estrogen, progesterone and testosterone, are crucial in a woman’s reproductive system and overall health. These hormones regulate the menstrual cycle, maintain bone density, support heart health, and influence mood and cognitive function. As women age, hormone levels naturally decline, leading to unwanted symptoms such as hot flashes, vaginal dryness, and decreased libido. Hormone replacement therapy (HRT) can help alleviate these symptoms by restoring hormone levels to their optimal balance.

Symptoms of Hormone Imbalance:

  • Acne
  • Anxiety
  • Breast tenderness or soreness
  • Constipation
  • Depression
  • Dry skin
  • Exhaustion
  • Fatigue
  • Hair loss
  • Headaches
  • High cholesterol
  • Hot flashes
  • Inability to orgasm
  • Increased hunger
  • Infertility
  • Irritability
  • Loss of focus and concentration
  • Low libido
  • Mental fogginess
  • Mood changes
  • Muscle weakness
  • Night sweats
  • Osteoporosis
  • Painful sexual intercourse
  • Sleep disturbance/insomnia
  • Thinning or brittle hair
  • Vaginal atrophy
  • Vaginal dryness
  • Weight gain

The Solution: Hormone Replacement Therapy

Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) is a medical treatment that aims to restore hormone balance in women who experience declining hormone levels due to aging or other factors. At Fountain of You MD, we use progesterone, testosterone, and estrogen for our female hormone replacement therapy in Virginia Beach. These creams are applied topically and can be absorbed through the skin and into the bloodstream, providing a safe and effective way to supplement hormone levels.

Progesterone medication can reduce menopause symptoms, such as hot flashes and mood swings, and improve bone density. Testosterone cream can also positively impact women’s health by reducing anxiety, improving sexual desire and pleasure, and promoting overall sexual wellness. With the right dosage and administration, HRT can restore youthful and optimal hormone levels, helping women feel revitalized from within.


Transdermal Hormones

Transdermal hormone administration involves applying hormone-containing creams to the skin, allowing for absorption into the bloodstream. This method offers continuous hormone delivery and avoids the need for injections. Transdermal hormones are convenient and can be easily integrated into your daily routine. They are commonly used for Testosterone and estrogen replacement in women to alleviate menopausal symptoms like hot flashes, vaginal dryness, and mood swings.

Hormone Pellets

Hormone pellets are implants containing bioidentical hormones that offer a long-term solution for hormone replacement. These pellets are inserted beneath the skin and release hormones continuously over several months. Pellet therapy provides consistent hormone levels, mimicking the body’s natural hormone production rhythm. It is a preferred option for women seeking sustained symptom relief without frequent injections or the daily application of creams.

Progesterone Pills, Testosterone & Estradiol Cream

Progesterone medication can help balance hormones, reduce the symptoms of menopause, improve bone density, and promote relaxation. Testosterone cream can improve sexual desire, reduce anxiety, and improve overall sexual wellness. Occasionally, we also recommend Estradiol cream to alleviate symptoms associated with menopause, such as hot flashes, vaginal dryness, and itching. It works by replenishing the declining estrogen levels in the body during menopause, thereby providing relief from these discomforts.
