Can HRT make you feel worse?

Can HRT Make You Feel Worse?

Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) is a powerful medical treatment used to manage symptoms associated with age-related hormone imbalances. While it can help improve these symptoms, there are instances where it can actually make people feel worse.

Some of the possible side effects of HRT that could lead to a deterioration of wellbeing include:

  • Weight gain
  • Increased risk of blood clots
  • Higher risks for stroke and heart attack
  • Mood swings, anxiety and depression
  • Fluid retention
  • Breast tenderness or enlargement

Additionally, if not taken correctly, hormones may accumulate in the body increasing levels, rather than balancing them out. When this happens it can cause more symptoms such as acne, breast swelling and bloating. All these side effects can eventually lead to an overall feeling of being unwell.

Of course, this doesn't mean you shouldn't consider taking HRT at all. As long as you are under careful medical supervision and dose adjustment is done according to your specific needs then HRT can be very effective in treating hormonal imbalances like menopause crises or hypogonadism in both men and women.

The key takeaway here is that HRT should be carefully monitored by experts who understand how to adjust for specific hormone changes so that the patient does not experience any adverse effects. If best practices are followed your chances of feeling worse after starting a therapy regimen will be greatly minimized - making it likely that you will end up feeling better overall!
