Hormone Replacement Therapy - Is It For You? See The Experts From Portage Pharmacy For Solutions!

Portage Pharmacy has a history of working closely with prescribing physicians in the Grand Rapids area to assist women who are experiencing the period of life know as menopause or perimenopause. A deficiency of sex hormones, called menopause or hypogonadism, causes the entire body to experience poorer health because every organ system in the body uses sex hormones to maintain good health. Women with hypogonadism experience disrupted sleep, loss of sexual function, fatigue, loss of cognitive function, vaginal dryness, and increased risk of osteoporosis in addition to the classic symptoms of hot flashes and night sweats.

What is compounded hormone replacement therapy? Compounded hormone prescriptions are made using hormones that are structurally identical to those produced by the human body. The therapies are individualized based on the specific needs of each patient. There are many factors that must be considered in the determination of dosing, which are discussed further in your consultation process.
