What is Hormone Therapy?

Hormone therapy, particularly when tailored through compounding pharmacies, offers personalized treatment options for both men and women experiencing hormone imbalances or deficiencies. These imbalances can arise from various conditions, including menopause in women, andropause (often referred to as male menopause) in men, thyroid disorders, and adrenal insufficiency. Compounded hormone therapy is a personalized treatment offering for men and women seeking options for their hormone imbalances. VPharmacy provides compounded hormones designed to closely mimic the body’s natural hormones, to restore hormonal balance and alleviate symptoms associated with hormone imbalance.

What is Hormone Therapy for Women?

Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) is commonly used to manage symptoms of menopause, such as hot flashes, night sweats, mood changes, and vaginal dryness. Compounded HRT can include a combination of estrogen, progesterone, and sometimes testosterone, tailored to the individual’s specific symptoms and hormone levels. Bioidentical hormones, which are chemically identical to those the body naturally produces, are often preferred for their perceived naturalness and potential for fewer side effects. Compounding pharmacies like VPharmacy can customize the dosage and delivery method of testosterone (e.g., testosterone replacement in a rapid dissolve tablet and cream) to meet individual needs and preferences, providing an alternative to standard formulations.

What is Hormone Therapy for Men?

Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT) is the primary form of hormone therapy for men, particularly those with low testosterone levels due to andropause, medical conditions, or aging. Symptoms of low testosterone can include fatigue, mood swings, decreased muscle mass, and reduced libido. Compounding pharmacies like VPharmacy can customize the dosage and delivery method of testosterone (e.g., topical gels, injections and rapid dissolve tablets) to meet individual needs and preferences, providing an alternative to standard formulations.​
