When we hear the word “hormones,” we often think about the big three: testosterone, estrogen, and progesterone. But these best-known examples are only the tip of the iceberg. In fact, the human body produces upwards of 50 hormones—each with its own purpose throughout the various stages of life.
Hormones are complicated chemical messengers that dictate everything from blood sugar and blood pressure to sex drive and body temperature. With so much riding on a proper hormone balance, it can be difficult to tell if you’re just under the weather or if there’s something larger at play.
At first blush, women suffering from menopause and men searching for erectile dysfunction treatments have little in common. But both parties can benefit mightily from hormone replacement therapy (HRT). Here’s how.

Top 5 Benefits of Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy For Men & Women
Depending on your major sex hormone (testosterone/estrogen) and the severity of your imbalance, symptoms can range from annoying to existential. Here’s how HRT can help you.
Testosterone is notorious for its effects on the male sex drive, but that relationship isn’t unique to men. In women, estrogen promotes both sexual ability and desire. A pronounced dip in either hormone can lead to a low libido, causing tension between you and your partner or even sinking marriages.
Better Sex For Men
At a certain age, or even after certain treatments (such as chemotherapy), it can be borderline impossible for men to resurrect their libido. Even when the desire is there, achieving erections can be a struggle.
Thankfully, with just a bioidentical HRT pellet implanted beneath your skin, you can achieve stronger erections on-demand for more gratifying sex whenever the mood strikes. Ditch the little blue pills and pick a longer-lasting and more natural erectile dysfunction treatment.
Better Sex For Women
The old cliches about the feminine libido have been tossed out the window. Unlike previous generations, we now know that women desire sex just as much as men. But like with men, desire and ability don’t always correspond. This is where bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) pellets come in.
The bioidentical pellet is smaller than a grain of rice. Once implanted beneath your skin, it delivers months of estrogen and other vital hormones. With a proper hormone balance, you’ll feel a more prominent sexual desire while also increasing vaginal lubrication for more satisfying intimacy.
Easier Weight Management and Improved Lean Muscle Mass
In both men and women, hormone imbalances can easily cause mild to significant weight gain. A lack of estrogen or testosterone (or both) can sink your energy levels, making exercise or even light activity more difficult.
As a cherry on top, hormone imbalances also make maintaining muscle mass nearly impossible—to say nothing of adding new muscle. Naturally, the more muscle you have relative to your overall body weight, the faster and more efficient your metabolism becomes.
BHRT solves both problems with a single pellet. By restoring your hormone balance, bioidentical hormone therapy gives you the energy you need to get up, bulk up, and stay fit.
Fewer Uncomfortable Symptoms
Menopause is the queen of unexpected symptoms. From hot flashes and insomnia to forgetfulness and tinnitus (ringing in your ears), menopause finds something new to throw at you on a near-daily basis.
Men also experience a range of strange hormone imbalance symptoms. They may endure muscle aches, thinning hair, baldness, and even a dip in bone density leading to osteoporosis. In men and women, the uncomfortable and even chronic symptoms begin to stack up.
Once your hormone balance is restored, you’ll shed most (if not all) of the most uncomfortable symptoms. Better sleep, thicker hair, and thicker bones are rewards in their own right, but for the total picture, see the next two items on our list.
Improved Mental Health
Hormones aren’t just important for organ function or the regulation of body processes—they also have a profound effect on our mentality, outlook, and mood. In a balanced body, estrogen increases the production of serotonin (the “feel good” chemical). Meanwhile, a healthy amount of testosterone can boost your brain’s stockpile of dopamine (the chemical messenger of pleasure) while also regulating mood overall.
In men and women, a hormone imbalance can cause serious mental health episodes, including:
- Lack of focus
- Mood swings
If you’ve experienced even just one of these mental health disorders, a hormone imbalance could be to blame. To learn more about your mental health and seek treatment today, call (781) 412-1309 or contact us online.
Restored Sense of Self
Finally, and perhaps most promisingly, BHRT can restore your ultimate sense of self. We never stop being ourselves, of course, but at a certain point in the aging process, we can lose something essential.
Some patients describe it as feeling like a “shell” of their former selves. Others may lose a sense of self because they identify with relationships or activities that have been affected by a hormone imbalance.
A lack of estrogen or testosterone affects our friendships, our partnerships, our marriages, our sex life, our fitness, our sleep, and our mental health. When an imbalance damages even one of these aspects, it can be difficult to feel like you. But when two or three aspects are affected, you begin to feel like someone totally unfamiliar.
By restoring your libido, balancing your weight, defeating uncomfortable symptoms, and improving your mental health, hormone replacement therapy brings your true self back into focus. The comprehensive benefit may be more abstract, but that doesn’t make it any less crucial.
