Experience the transformative powers of our Austin hormone replacement therapy options.
Hormones regulate many areas of mental and physical health. So, when the body doesn’t produce enough hormones, the resulting imbalance can have severe and lasting effects on the body.
While hormone imbalances are expected, especially for women going through menopause, therapies are available for relieving symptoms and increasing hormone levels.
Hormone replacement therapy (HRT) helps patients regain their quality of life through higher energy levels, fewer menopause symptoms, and better moods.
Explore what patients might expect with our Austin HRT options.
Why Do Hormone Imbalances Occur?
Hormone imbalances occur when the body doesn’t produce a healthy amount of hormones such as estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone. These hormones are cell messengers that trigger key health processes, boost moods, increase energy levels, and fuel sexual function.
Hormonal imbalances are a natural part of aging and usually occur in women between 55 and 60 who begin menopause.
Men also see a dip in testosterone beginning around 30 but dropping significantly around 60.
Progesterone imbalances can occur because of:
- Menopause and aging
- Reproductive health issues
Estrogen imbalances can occur because of:
- Pregnancy and breastfeeding
- Significant weight changes
- Medications and steroids
- High blood pressure
If you believe you may have a hormone imbalance, our trained medical professionals at PeakPerforMAX can help! We offer diagnosis and a customized treatment plan based on the cause of your hormonal imbalances and current levels.
Symptoms of Low Hormone Levels
Low hormones, such as progesterone and estrogen, cause several symptoms, including:
- Irregular or missed periods/spotting
- Hot flashes and night sweats
- Significant weight changes
- Libido changes
- Vaginal dryness
- Dry skin
- Noncancerous breast lumps or breast pain
- Abdominal pain
- Muscle loss
- Cognitive challenges
How Are Low Hormone Levels Diagnosed?
Blood and urine samples can give medical professionals an overview of your hormone levels.
PeakPerforMAX orders tests at a local Austin laboratory for diagnosis. After receiving the results, they can provide a customized treatment option without needing you to visit a doctor’s office.
What Is Hormone Replacement Therapy?
Hormone replacement therapy reduces symptoms of hormone imbalance and menopause by adding more hormones into the body to help reach naturally balanced levels.
Patients can receive the treatment in several forms, including:
- Topical solutions
- Vaginal rings and creams
The form patients receive depends on the underlying cause of the hormonal balance. It also depends on potential risk factors and hormonal levels. Each HRT option has a different dosage and side effects.
How Is HRT Different from TRT?
Hormone replacement therapy replaces progesterone and estrogen in the body. Testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) replaces testosterone in the body.
While HRT is usually used for treatment females receive, it’s also an umbrella term for treating all hormonal imbalances, including testosterone.
How Is HRT Different from BHRT?
When patients receive hormone replacement therapy in Austin, we provide the body with much-needed hormones to balance the body’s natural levels.
Some HRT options use chemical or animal-based molecules. These artificial hormones, while effective, don’t fully match a human’s molecules.
Our Austin bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) only uses molecules that are an exact match to human molecules, so the hormones patients receive are identical to those naturally occurring in the body.

Potential Risks with HRT
HRT may not be for everyone. Everybody responds differently to the therapy, so receiving a customized treatment option versus one-size-fits-all hormone pills is crucial. PeakPerforMAX’s personalized treatment focuses on reducing the chance of side effects while increasing the benefits gained from the therapy.
Some of the most common side effects associated with HRT include:
- Indigestion and nausea
- Abdominal pain
- Spotting or bleeding
- Higher risk of breast cancer in some cases
- Increased risk of blood clots and stroke in some cases
Patients can minimize potential side effects by being open and honest with their PeakPerforMAX health professional about their medical history, current medications, and health issues. Patients with underlying conditions or pregnant patients may not be eligible for HRT.
