What are Hormone Creams and their Uses?

Hormone creams provide an effective delivery method for restoring hormonal balance. These topical preparations contain hormones like estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone that can be directly absorbed through the skin. 

When applied, hormones are able to bypass digestion and liver metabolism leading to improved bioavailability compared to oral formulations. Hormone creams help treat a variety of conditions related to hormonal deficiencies or imbalances, providing an easy and convenient way to supplement essential hormones.

There are a few main reasons why hormone creams are used:

  • To relieve symptoms of menopause such as hot flashes, night sweats, vaginal dryness and irritation. Applying creams locally allows hormones to be delivered directly to the skin and vaginal tissues.
  • Creams provide a local effect without increasing hormone levels throughout the entire body as much as other delivery methods like pills or patches. This lowers the risk of potential health issues from systemic hormone exposure.
  • They are compounded to provide custom combinations, doses and formulations that are not always available through traditional FDA-approved products. This allows treatments to be more personalized.

Testosterone, Progesterone, and Estrogen Creams

Hormone creams can provide therapeutic benefits when used appropriately under medical supervision.

Testosterone Cream

Testosterone cream is often prescribed to increase testosterone levels in individuals experiencing age-related decline or medical conditions that cause low testosterone. It can be used to help with sexual dysfunction and promote overall well-being. Benefits of testosterone cream include:

  • Increased bone mineral density and lean muscle mass
  • Improved libido and sexual function
  • More energy and improved mood
  • Potentially decreased risk of Alzheimer’s disease in postmenopausal women

It is important to use the minimal effective dose of testosterone cream and monitor for signs of excess testosterone to avoid side effects like acne, hair loss, voice deepening, and increased facial hair growth.

Progesterone Cream

Progesterone cream helps relieve hot flashes, night sweats, and other menopausal symptoms when natural progesterone levels decline. Other uses include supporting early pregnancy and treating conditions like endometriosis. Potential benefits include:

  • Reduced menopausal symptoms
  • Improved sleep quality
  • Decreased anxiety and irritability
  • Increased libido
  • Improved cervical mucus production when trying to conceive

Progesterone cream should not be used in those at high risk for hormone-sensitive cancers. They are generally well-tolerated, but potential side effects may still arise which include bloating, breast tenderness, mood changes, and spotting.

Estrogen Cream

Estrogen creams deliver low doses of estrogen directly to the vaginal tissue to help relieve symptoms of vaginal atrophy, such as dryness, irritation, and painful intercourse. Systemic absorption is lower than with oral estrogen. Benefits include:

  • Increased vaginal secretions and improved elasticity
  • Decreased pain with intercourse
  • Potentially reduced risk of recurrent urinary tract infections

Estrogen cream may not be appropriate for those with a history of hormone-sensitive cancers. Make sure to consult with our experts for proper dosing as too much estrogen absorbed by the body can lead to side effects such as breast tenderness, nausea, fluid retention, and headaches.

How to Assess Hormone Levels To Determine the Right Treatment Plan

The process of assessing your hormone levels and determining the right treatment plan when using hormone creams typically involves:

  1. Performing blood tests to measure hormone levels, such as estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone.
  2. Conducting a medical history and physical examination to understand your symptoms and rule out other underlying medical conditions.
  3. Determining if your symptoms are due to hormone deficiencies based on test results and examination findings.
  4. Formulating a treatment plan which involves prescribing bioidentical hormone creams to help relieve symptoms by restoring hormone levels to an optimal range. The dosage is often adjusted over time based on follow-up hormone testing and your response.
  5. Monitoring your hormone levels, symptoms, and overall health to ensure the treatment plan remains appropriate and effective for your needs.

Hormone Imbalances We Treat

At Z Med Clinic, we have experience treating a wide range of conditions related to hormone deficiencies or imbalances. Our personalized hormone therapy can help provide relief for symptoms of:

MenopauseWe help women ease challenging menopausal symptoms like hot flashes, night sweats, vaginal dryness, irritability, trouble sleeping, and reduced libido that accompany the transition.
Thyroid disordersImbalances in thyroid hormones like hypothyroidism and hyperthyroidism lead to symptoms like unexplained weight changes, fatigue, constipation, temperature sensitivity, and heavy periods. Balancing these levels can dramatically improve well-being.
InfertilityFrom thyroid disorders to low testosterone, many hormone imbalances can make getting pregnant difficult. We identify and treat the root hormonal causes of infertility to support conception.
EndometriosisThis painful condition is driven by estrogen dominance. We can help improve symptoms like pelvic pain, heavy menstrual bleeding, and cramping by optimizing hormones.
Low libidoDeclining hormone levels are a common cause of low sex drive. We can help improve libido and sexual satisfaction through hormone optimization.
Chronic fatigueImbalances in hormones can leave you feeling drained. We identify and treat the hormonal factors leading to fatigue.

Recommended Supplements to Complement Hormone Therapy

Complementary vitamins and supplements may further enhance the benefits of your treatment. The right supplements can help restore optimal hormone balance, protect bone and heart health, boost energy levels, and promote overall well being. These include:

  • Calcium and Vitamin D supplementation is often recommended for hormone therapy, especially for conditions like breast cancer and prostate cancer where treatments can weaken bones. Calcium and Vitamin D help protect bone health.
  • Magnesium is also identified as an important supplement that can help balance hormones like cortisol and estrogen.
  • B vitamins like B6, B12 and folate (B9) play key roles in hormone production and metabolism. Taking a B complex supplement can support overall hormone balance.
  • Zinc is another mineral that supports hormone balance and production.
  • Adaptogenic herbs like ashwagandha, holy basil and rhodiola can help the body adapt to stress and support the adrenal glands in regulating cortisol and other hormones.
