Sexual wellness clinic East Northport, NY - Renew Medical Center

Overview of Sexual Wellness and Hormone Therapy

Sexual wellness encompasses physical, mental, and emotional health related to sexuality and sexual function. As we age, hormone changes can negatively impact libido, sexual performance, energy, mood, and more. A sexual wellness clinic focuses on restoring balance through hormone replacement therapy (HRT) and lifestyle adjustments.

HRT involves supplementing hormones that decline with age, like testosterone in men and estrogen in women. Restoring optimal levels can provide immense benefits related to sexuality and overall vitality. Below, we delve deeper into signs of hormone imbalance, who can benefit from HRT, treatment methods, and more specifics around our hormone clinic.

At her 3-month follow-up, Sarah was in tears thanking us for restoring intimacy and "giving her marriage a second honeymoon."

Myths and Facts About HRT

Despite proven benefits, common misconceptions about hormone therapy persist. Let's separate truths from fiction:

Myth: HRT increases cancer risk * Fact: Extensive research confirms female hormone therapy does NOT cause cancer when started within 10 years of menopause. Male testosterone therapy holds no proven cancer risk either. We screen for contraindications.

Myth: HRT stresses the heart * Fact: As estrogen drops during menopause, women lose the heart protection hormones provide before this change. Restored estrogen therapy is safe for most healthy women under age 60. Testosterone offers heart benefits like improved cholesterol for men.

Myth: HRT causes weight gain * Facts: Balancing hormone levels helps reduce abdominal obesity. By improving body composition and energy, HRT facilitates easier weight/fat loss through diet and exercise.

Myth: Taking external hormones is "unnatural" * Fact: Oral/topical hormones restore deficient levels to more youthful norms. Many are bioidentical to the body's own. Declining hormones taking us out of natural balance causes dysfunction.

Myth: HRT complications outweigh benefits * Fact: Evidence clearly shows quality of life markedly increases with hormone normalization when appropriately implemented and monitored.

HRT risks stem largely from inappropriate use - treating normal aging, ignoring health history, lax monitoring, etc. Our specialist oversight optimizes safety and positive outcomes.

Anti-Aging Effects of HRT

While not its primary purpose, balanced hormone levels actively slow aspects of the aging process. Benefits may include:

Longer lifespan - Multiple studies correlate sufficient testosterone in men and estrogen in women with increased longevity. Hormone restoration likely extends human healthspan.

Younger gene activity - Optimal hormones help regulate gene expression patterns to more youthful profiles. Genetics partly dictate the rate of biological aging.

Glucose metabolism support - Balanced hormones improve insulin sensitivity and blood sugar regulation. Poor glucose control accelerates aging.

Lower inflammation - HRT helps resolve inflammatory issues driving age advancement like joint pain, diabetes, and heart disease.

Strengthened immunity - Hormones like testosterone and DHEA directly support immune function, which declines with age.

Brain protection - Estrogen and testosterone enhance cognition and help prevent dementia, resulting in sharper mental acuity long-term.

While we don't promise fountain of youth results, HRT does align key biomarkers with slower aging. Our age management physician talks in more detail below about this anti-aging relationship.

Dr. Emily Thompson from Renew Medical Center: "After practicing age management medicine for over 20 years, I can unequivocally say that balanced hormone levels consistently correlate with better health and longevity markers in patients. Optimizing testosterone, estrogen, thyroid, and other hormone levels to more youthful ranges plays a definitive role in fighting disease and supporting graceful aging."
