Welcome to HerKare - The Woodlands
How may we care for you today?
Hormone Replacement Therapy in The WoodlandsHormone replacement therapy can be used for menopause treatment, but it has many other benefits as well. You can develop a hormone imbalance at any time in your life. If you're wondering why you have symptoms such as fatigue, depression, insomnia or a low sex drive, it could be a hormone imbalance. We'll discuss your symptoms and run some tests to diagnose what's going on and possibly recommend estrogen replacement therapy or another appropriate hormone therapy based on your needs. We don't stop there. We'll keep monitoring you to make sure you are getting the right dosage of bioidentical hormones and making adjustments as needed. We encourage you to talk to us about how you're feeling because this can be as important as the tests we run to understand what you need.
