Hormone Replacement Therapy Q & A

What is hormone replacement therapy?

Hormone replacement therapy supplements the body’s hormones when it no longer creates adequate amounts. Your hormones regulate many essential processes, such as metabolism, temperature, and digestion. When your hormones are imbalanced, they can cause uncomfortable symptoms that affect your quality of life.

Traditional hormone therapy restores depleted levels with synthetic chemicals. At Lukner Medical Clinic, Dr. Lukner offers bioidentical hormones that are chemically identical to the hormones your body already produces. Bioidentical hormones have the same molecular structure as your own, so they may cause fewer side effects than traditional hormone therapy.

How does hormone replacement therapy work?

Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy delivers a consistent dose of hormones into your body to restore your levels. Unlike other hormone therapy methods, bioidentical hormones are available in BioTe® implantable pellets that Dr. Lukner can tailor to your specific deficiency. After three to six months, he can adjust your plan as your needs change.

What are the benefits of hormone replacement therapy?

Hormone replacement therapy can benefit men and women experiencing hormone imbalances. While this treatment can help address multiple types of hormone imbalances, the two most common conditions it treats are:


When a woman enters menopause and stops menstruating, her estrogen levels plummet. This sudden decline in estrogen can cause significant symptoms, including:

  • Hot flashes
  • Night sweats
  • Thinning hair
  • Dry skin
  • Mood swings
  • Anxiety and depression
  • Weight gain
  • Low libido

Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy can increase estrogen levels to relieve these symptoms and restore your quality of life.

Low testosterone (low T)

Testosterone is responsible for many male characteristics and functions, such as muscle mass and facial hair. While testosterone levels naturally decline with age, low quantities can cause many uncomfortable symptoms, such as:

  • Low libido
  • Erectile dysfunction (ED)
  • Increased abdominal fat
  • Low muscle mass
  • Fatigue
  • Irritability

Hormone imbalance can affect your physical and mental health. Dr. Lukner works with you to develop a hormone replacement therapy plan that restores balance to your hormone levels and minimizes these symptoms.
