Hormone Therapy

At Vital Health Endometriosis Center we recognize hormone therapies as one of an arsenal of possible treatments that may be of benefit to select patients.

Hormone therapy is a medical treatment whereby the body’s natural hormones are suppressed, supplemented or replaced either by synthetic or bioidentical hormones, or by hormone agonists or antagonists (which affect the amounts of certain hormones produced by the body itself). Hormone therapies are used for a variety of reasons, from managing heavy, irregular or painful periods to reducing the symptoms commonly associated with menopause. Certain hormone therapies, such as the combined birth control pill and the Mirena intrauterine dinstevice, are commonly used for contraceptive purposes although may be used therapeutically to regulate menstruation, reduce menstrual pain and bleeding, and to treat premenstrual syndrome.

Hormone therapy is used for a variety of reasons, from providing birth control to managing heavy periods and reducing the symptoms of menopause.
