Unlike other women’s TRT clinics, we don’t leave our women behind, it would be unthinkable, because TRT for women in Hammond ME can be as beneficial as it is for men, for women – At IHAC, TRT for Women in Hammond ME is a main focus, not an add on to men’s health

TRT for Women in Hammond ME, and women’s overall hormone therapy is overlooked at almost every primary, and women’s care, medical practices in existence. They simply don’t, or won’t, take the time to understand how beneficial it can be, and to learn how to administer an optimized women’s TRT and hormone therapy and replacement program for their women patients.

Back to women’s TRT in Hammond ME. From the beginning, to the end, women are overlooked and left out of the TRT conversation. But the truth is, there are very few conversations happening at all, be them about TRT for women, or hormones in general. You guessed it, I’m talking about hormones and testosterone replacement therapy for women. More specifically, the hormonal ruckus that comes sometime after you turn 30, and lasts until, you know, forever.

TRT for Women in Hammond ME and Hormone Therapy Why Don’t They Talk About This Stuff?

We know YOU are talking about this topic quite a bit, with your girlfriends over wine, at the yoga studio, and over Instagram chats. Finding solace and validation that you are not, in fact, crazy, and yes, your body is not the same as it used to be. But again, why are none of the doctors and medical staff taking care of us talking about Women’s health issues and potentially life changing therapies like TRT, and hormone therapy and replacement for women.

TRT for Women in Hammond ME and Hormone Therapy Shouldn’t We Be Having These Discussions At Our Doctor’s Offices?

Yes. But nary a mention of TRT for women in Hammond ME, or of women’s hormone therapy in general for that matter. These conversations are simply not happening. We want to have them. Some of us are brave enough to say the “h” word, but then it drops from our lips to the cold linoleum floor. Our doctor’s mean well, but most are over-worked with no time to devote to it. And besides, TRT for women and hormonal health therapy and replacement are not taught in medical schools. A 2019 Mayo Clinic survey found that less than 7% of general practitioners are equipped to handle hormone health including TRT for women. Simply put, they just don’t know.

TRT for Women in Hammond MERobust, Supporting Research In TRT For Women in Hammond ME, And Women’s Hormone Therapy Has Existed Since The 1930’s

You know what is wild? There was robust research and innovation in hormone therapy for women, including testosterone replacement therapy for women (TRT), since the 1930’s! Their findings included “All patients acknowledge great feeling of wellbeing, more balanced moods and clear thinking” and “increased sexual libido and a sense of well-being was notably present in each patient”. They had gathered so much research, that by 1947 it was reported “The literature which has accumulated is now sufficiently extensive to permit a tentative evaluation of the present status of androgens as therapeutic agents in women.”

TRT for Women in Hammond MENothing Has Changed With Regards To Women’s TRT And Hormonal Support In Lieu Of This Information – Go Figure

Yet, fast forward to present-day, a lack of information and clear direction still persists. The FDA has taken very little effort to rectify this, and to date, there are ZERO FDA-approved testosterone formulations for women (and yet there are 30+ approved formulations for men, as well as a suite of male sexual health meds, but hey, are we really surprised?). There is this general belief that female hormonal health, and certainly their sexual health, is somehow less relevant after their child-bearing years have passed. We adamantly disagree. Women, we need TRT and hormonal support to be commonplace, so we reap all of the same benefits our male counterparts and partners do.

TRT for Women in Hammond MESo What’s the Deal?

In 2002 all innovation, and hormone prescriptions, came to a quick and sudden halt after the Women’s Health Initiative study reported an increased risk for cancer and cardiovascular events for female’s receiving hormone replacement therapy, obscuring the fact that the reported excess risk was clinically meaningless, at just two events per 1,000 person-years. The therapy in question was a conjugated estrogen pill created from mare urine. Numerous follow-up studies failed to support these findings, and in fact, we now have 2 long-term studies showing TRT has breast protective benefits for women.

Nonetheless, the media went into a full frenzy and massive damage was done. Women lost access to the care they needed. What’s new.

As a result, women have been suffering needlessly for decades without access to women’s TRT and hormonal therapy treatments and options.

We fully agree with Harvard Universities, Dr. Abraham Morgentaler, urologist and TRT pioneer, “The true outrage is that social forces and hysteria have combined to deprive men and women of a useful treatment without regard for medical science.”

TRT for Women in Hammond MEBioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) - Help Has Arrived.

So much emphasis has been placed on estrogen pills and patches. While estrogen has its place (we will chat later) at IHAC, we are especially passionate about the other anabolic hormone, you know, the one that the guys seem to have all the fun with? Testosterone. TRT for women in Hammond ME and women’s BHRT can level the playing field, get you healthy, and make you happy once again.

Testosterone is an essential male and female hormone. It is a human hormone. Did you know that women have 10x more testosterone than estrogen? It’s true! Testosterone is the hormone of creation and vitality. Your body is full of androgenic receptors (ARs) in areas like your immune and reproductive system, the gut and your muscles. When testosterone binds to these receptors, powerful action takes place on the cellular level, helping every system in your body perform best.

Testosterone improves libido, including vaginal moisture, arousal, and satisfaction. Testosterone improves body composition, increasing muscle mass and reducing fat. Testosterone improves metabolic health, anemia, and bone density. Testosterone is beneficial for mental and emotional health, energy, and stamina. As previously discussed, testosterone has demonstrated cardio and breast protective benefits. Testosterone makes effort feel good, and when that feels good, everything you do feels better.

Women can start to experience the effects of perimenopause in their 30’s, but most start in their 40’s. Symptoms such as loss of libido, brain fog, midsection weight gain, inability to lose weight, vaginal dryness and pain, loss of muscle mass and energy. These symptoms can continue to worsen until many years after menopause. So how does testosterone, or more appropriately, TRT for women in Hammond ME help?

TRT for Women in Hammond MEFinally Some Clarification & Direction On Women’s TRT

Champion of women’s health, firecracker and urologist Dr. Rachel Rubin made a very poignant observation. She noticed that many of the symptoms women suffer from are the same symptoms that men with testosterone deficiency suffer with. She describes menopause as being an “androgen deficiency syndrome”. Finally, some clarification and direction. Thank you, Rachel.

Telehealth and Your Testosterone Treatment – Hormone Replacement and Optimization Therapy

Telehealth services are commonplace today, and for good reason, especially for patients seeking testosterone replacement therapy and other hormone optimization services. Traditional brick and mortar medial offices tend to be placed in more populated areas with access to lots of patients, but this makes finding the best doctor and medical staff more of a geography issue than a medical one. You should be able to choose your medical providers based on who is best for the job, not based on proximity. It becomes an unfortunate barrier to quality healthcare. When selecting a medical team to care for your testosterone replacement therapy (TRT), telehealth via medically directed organizations is a great option. You deserve access to MD directed quality care regardless of location. The laboratory values needed to optimize your TRT are easily obtained with standard labs at most collection facilities. Once we get you registered at our clinic, we will prepare your lab orders and send them to the draw station of your choice and at your convenience. Once we have your lab results, and you have been thoroughly evaluated for symptoms, an appropriate therapeutic course will be set for you.

Telehealth minimizes inconveniences to your life, while maximizing your access to quality medical management of all your hormone optimization needs.

A Clinical History of Women’s TRT

We have known since the 1930’s that testosterone therapy, TRT, was used in treatment of gynecological issues including symptoms of menopause syndrome.

  1. 1940 in the British Medical Journal Alfered Loeser wrote of women on androgen therapy, “All patients acknowledge great feeling of wellbeing, more balanced moods and clear thinking; and some profess also a greater determination.”
  2. 1941 Greenblatt et al. in Southern Surgeon writes “Incidentally, increased sexual libido, and a sense of well-being was notably present in each patient.”
  3. 1947 Carter et al. in the Journal of Vitamins and Hormones wrote, “In the intervening decade they have been widely used in the management of a variety of derangements of female sexual physiology and more recently for numerous metabolic disorders. The literature which has accumulated is now sufficiently extensive to permit a tentative evaluation of the present status of androgens as therapeutic agents in women.”
  4. In the 1980’s a randomized double-blind placebo-controlled study by Sherwin et al., showed that menopausal women treated with androgen therapy had a significant improvement in sexual desire and arousal over women being treated with estrogen alone.
  5. In 2003 the Journal of the North American Menopause Society Goldstat et al. writes, “Testosterone therapy improves well-being, mood, and sexual function in pre-menopausal women with low libido and low testosterone.”
  6. In 2006 the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism Miller et al. conducted the first randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study to show a positive effect of testosterone on bone density, body composition, and neurobehavioral function in women with severe androgen deficiency.”

Are we really surprised?

The findings of the WHI and follow-up studies showing TRT has both breast and cardioprotective benefits.

  1. In 2002 the Women’s Health Initiative started a media frenzy when they concluded hormonal therapies were unsafe, despite data that failed to arrive to significant consensus, and follow-up studies that failed to support those conclusions.
  2. In 2021 the results of the largest long-term study, The Testosterone Therapy and Breast Cancer Incidence Study, demonstrated that testosterone or combination T/E therapy significantly reduced the incidence of BC in pre- and post-menopausal women. This is the second multi-year long-term study demonstrating that testosterone demonstrates breast protective benefits.
  3. 2009 Journal of Impotence Research, Maggio et al., low serum testosterone levels are an independent risk factor of cardiovascular and all-cause mortality.
  4. 2011 Journal of American College Cardiology, Ohlsson et al., higher serum testosterone levels are associated with a reduced risk of fatal and nonfatal CV events in community dwelling elderly men.
  5. 2015 Mayo Clinical Proceedings, Morgentaler et al., “In summary, there is no convincing evidence of increased CV risks with T therapy. On the contrary, there appears to be a strong beneficial relationship between normal T and CV health that has not yet been widely appreciated.”
