What Is Hormone Therapy?
Our bodies rely on hormones to control our growth and support a variety of things, like digestion, brain function, sleep, and sexual stamina. Oftentimes, changes in the body can cause symptoms that can dramatically impact these things. At Life Care for Women, Dr. Linda Sodoma aims to help her Mesa, Tempe, and Scottsdale, AZ patients regulate their hormones with hormone therapy. Some common symptoms that hormone therapy can treat include:
- Menopause symptoms
- Mood swings

Am I A Good Candidate for Hormone Therapy?
Hormone replacement therapy is normally provided at Life Care for Women to assist women dealing with low or imbalanced amounts of hormones. Typically, these concerns are widespread among people aged 40 or older and notice alterations in their mood, libido, weight, and brain clarity. These issues may also be seen in women over 50 who have undergone a total hysterectomy. A hormonal imbalance can lead to numerous medical concerns, like sexual dysfunction, thyroid disorders, elevated cholesterol levels, night perspiration, sleeping troubles, and trouble with memory.
How Does Hormone Therapy Work?
During a one-on-one consultation, Dr. Sodoma will review your symptoms, as well as perform a blood test. This will help us determine what hormones are out of balance and how we can best help you. With this information in hand, we can create a custom treatment plan that will help us restore your hormone levels so you can experience overall wellness. Once we establish what hormones are needed, we can insert a tiny bioidentical pellet — about the size of a grain of rice — under your skin. This pellet will slowly release bioidentical hormones, which are created from plant sources and are identical to the natural hormones found in the body. You should notice a difference almost right away, but it can take some time to find just the right dosage for your particular needs.
What Should I Expect Following Hormone Therapy?
Considering that BHRT is a highly customized therapy, it's vital to keep up with any follow-up plans provided by Dr. Sodoma or a skilled team member. Individuals could possibly encounter discomfort, skin breakouts, hair thickening, and moodiness as the body alters to the newfound hormone amounts. During your therapy, our team will keep up with you to supervise your progress. Your dosage level and course of treatment can also be tweaked as required. Many patients see beneficial results from hormone therapy over several days after the beginning of their therapy.

Hormone Therapy FAQs
What is the cause of imbalanced hormones?
Hormones are organic messengers that help with promoting your body's operations. A variety of reasons may lead to an imbalance in your hormone levels.
How can you tell if your hormones are off?
Many factors might cause a disparity in your hormone amounts. Among these are being older, lifestyle changes, ongoing anxiety, medication, menopause, and some medical conditions. Imbalanced hormones also appear differently across biological genders. For example, women might have irregular menstruation, but men have inhibited sexual performance.
What are the long-term benefits of hormone therapy?
Hormone replacement therapy supports the body and brain's journey toward ideal performance. Hormones can enhance your disposition, sleeping patterns, and sexual appetite. They can also offer relief to individuals who are insecure, agitated over, or down about their hormone spikes. The staff at Life Care for Women will give you additional info about this treatment when you come for the initial hormone consultation.
Are BHRT pellets safe?
When administered correctly and under the supervision of a trained healthcare practitioner like Dr. Sodoma, BHRT with pellets is considered safe. However, having regular check-ups and communicating any concerns or symptoms with her and the team at Life Care for Women is essential.
How is BHRT different from traditional hormone replacement therapy?
The main difference is in the hormones used. Other forms of hormone replacement therapy often use synthetic hormones, while BHRT uses hormones that are bioidentical to what your body naturally produces.
Why is pellet therapy preferable to creams or pills?
Pellet therapy offers a steady, consistent release of hormones directly into the bloodstream, reducing the peaks and valleys often associated with creams or pills. Plus, there's no daily regimen to remember or administer.
