Signs and symptoms of hormone imbalance include:

  • Hot flashes
  • Trouble sleeping
  • Increased anxiety
  • Decreased stamina
  • Vaginal dryness in women
  • Decreased sexual desire
  • Erectile dysfunction (ED) in men

Is hormone replacement therapy right for me?

To find out if you’re a candidate for hormone therapy, your provider at Pacific Northwest Urology Specialists discusses your symptoms and medical history.
