Hormones regulate our bodies to ensure they’re functioning at their best. As you age, hormone levels shift, leading you to feel out of balance. Hormone imbalance is a common occurrence, and it’s especially prevalent in women over the age of 45.

HRT requires a consultation where we discuss your symptoms, medical history, and hormone therapy options. Preliminary lab work is required before beginning treatment. You will come in for a second appointment 5 to 7 days after lab work is necessary to create a personalized treatment plan and begin the process.
After beginning HRT treatment, you will notice a difference during the 3 to 6 weeks following treatment. We will check in with you to determine if the dosage is working to its potential for you. Patients can notice an increase in energy, libido, as well as other positive effects.
Depending on your goals, we may recommend combining HRT with another wellness treatment.
Our bioidentical hormone replacement therapy in Kansas City uses natural body hormones made from soy and yams to help men and women with hormone imbalance.
You will start with a consultation with our nurse practitioner. During this consultation, we will discuss your symptoms, medical history, hormone options, and treatment goals. We will then refer you for lab work to find out your hormone level baseline.
Once you get your lab work completed, you will need to make a follow up appointment in the next 5 to 7 days to ensure report accuracy. We will review the labs to see your baseline functioning for hormones. This will help us create a personalized treatment plan for you.
We may even be able to begin your HRT treatment in your second appointment! We will determine a personalized treatment plan for you. This treatment is done primarily through a pellet, but it can sometimes take the form of injections or creams. The pellet form of HRT treatment is a little larger than a grain of rice. It is implanted in the upper/outer hip area.
While everyone is different, over time you will notice an improvement in your symptoms. The pellet slowly releases over 3 to 6 months. We can schedule follow up appointments and boosts as needed for the best results.
