There are two main types of estrogen therapy:
Systemic hormone therapy
Systemic estrogen can be used to replace the loss of estrogen in a woman’s body. It can be taken in a pill form, a skin path, ring, gel, cream or spray and is absorbed into the body. These are higher doses, used to treat any of the common symptoms of menopause.
Low-dose vaginal products
Low-dose vaginal preparations of estrogen minimize the amount of estrogen absorbed by the body. These products come in cream, tablet or ring form and due to the low-dose, are usually only used to treat the vaginal and urinary symptoms of menopause.
Balancing healthy testosterone levels keeps your body fine-tuned and helps with overall health and wellness. Seeing a physician experienced in hormone replacement is a great place to start.
