Michelle King Robson, the founder of EmpowHER, recalls the hormone replacement therapy/HRT form she uses and provides tips for other women.

Michelle King Robson:
You know, a lot of women ask me what hormone replacement therapy I use, and so I want to make sure that you all understand how this works. For me, it’s as simple as a patch, a transdermal patch that I put on, and I use a little bit of testosterone cream which is compounded for me specifically.

Those are really the two, the only two things that I needed after having a hysterectomy that got me to optimal health. For you, it could be different. The transdermal patches are different so the adhesive is different, so it goes into the body differently. It could be that you need less testosterone or you need a little bit more testosterone.

It’s very individualized, and then there are different types. So there’s creams, there’s injectables, there’s pill form. So there’s many different ways to get the hormone replacement therapy that you need, but it’s very, very individualized. So introducing one thing, for example, like a transdermal patch for your estradiol to make sure that that level is up, is really a good thing before you start introducing other things into the mix.

So, because I get that question so often, I think it’s important that you understand that what works for me isn’t necessarily going to work for you, and what works for you, isn’t necessarily going to work for me, but you need to find the right doctor who can prescribe for you what you need.
