HRT Injections: What You Need to Know about Hormone Replacement Therapy

HRT Injections

Hormone replacement therapy encompasses much more than just supplementing estrogen levels in menopausal women. HRT injections consist of numerous options – each targeting a particular hormone that is deficient in the body.

Hormone levels fluctuate throughout our lives, but some begin to decline at specific times – usually at some point after the age of thirty. Both men and women suffer from these changes – some more than others. It is only when a deficiency leads to unpleasant symptoms that a person needs to look into the possibility of getting HRT hormone injections for better health and well-being.

One of the positive aspects of hormone replacement therapy is the ability to administer HRT injections at home. This saves a considerable amount of time and expense that would have otherwise been used up by medical office visits. Kingsberg HRT Clinic simplifies the process further by offering telephone consultations with a hormone specialist.

Types of HRT Injections

The various types of HRT injections are not interchangeable. For example, you cannot use testosterone shots as a way to increase growth hormone if your testosterone levels are not low. This will not bring the positive results you desire, and could, instead, lead to unwanted side effects.

The four most common HRT injections are:

  • Human Growth Hormones

HGH injections increase the body’s supply of human growth hormone (somatotropin), a vital chemical that plays a role in the majority of the body’s functions. Without enough somatotropin in the system, metabolism, brain functions, immunity, cellular regeneration, libido, and more would suffer. HGH injections provide an immediate increase in human growth hormone levels.

  • Sermorelin

Some people might say that sermorelin is interchangeable with HGH, but that is not necessarily the case. Although sermorelin acetate will help increase human growth hormone levels, it does not provide the same immediate raising of this chemical in the body. Instead, sermorelin slowly signals the pituitary gland to increase its production of somatotropin. The results appear at a slower pace. Sermorelin is not recommended when severe symptoms of HGH deficiency are present.

  • Testosterone

Testosterone injections (cypionate or enanthate) are for use by men with Low T. Women will not receive testosterone shots if their testosterone levels are low. Instead, they will use testosterone cream. It is just as important for a woman to maintain a healthy supply of testosterone as it is for a male.

  • Progesterone

Progesterone injections are most commonly used as a treatment for infertility. Progesterone deficiency in older adults is often addressed with a prescription cream. Do not confuse natural progesterone with synthetic progestin – they are not the same, and progestin carries risks not associated with progesterone therapy.

The hormone replacement therapy specialist will run diagnostic blood tests to determine where the deficiency stems from to prescribe the appropriate treatment.

Potential HRT Injection Side Effects

HRT injection side effects vary depending on the type of treatment. All of the HRT types listed here have very low potentials for adverse reactions. In fact, some have such a low risk it is rarely discussed at all.

One of the safest injections for HRT is sermorelin. Its most common reaction (along with any type of shot) is injection site redness, swelling, or pain. Some people may experience the following sermorelin side effects:

  • Headache
  • Sleepiness
  • Difficulty swallowing
  • Dizziness
  • Flushing
  • Hives
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Pale skin
  • Hyperactivity

Human growth hormone side effects include those above, are also rare, and most commonly associated with misuse or abuse of this medication. The following additional side effects of HGH injections are possible:

  • Joint and muscle aches
  • Swelling in the leg and arms
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Male breast enlargement
  • Increased cholesterol
  • Type 2 diabetes

For testosterone injections, the side effects are extremely rare when used as prescribed by a hormone specialist for the treatment of Low T. Those abusing the medication are at an increased risk of the following side effects:

  • Gynecomastia – breast swelling
  • Headache
  • Male-pattern baldness
  • Facial and body hair growth
  • Numbness
  • Tingling
  • Changes in libido
  • Anxiety

Mood changes are also possible side effects when too much of a hormone is introduced into the body. The incidence of HRT side effects is rare when you work with an experienced hormone specialist.
