Menopause & Hormone Specialty Center offers the women of Shreveport a variety of oral formats for administering progesterone to their bodies. The first form is progesterone pills—absorbed into your body through your digestive system. The next option is troches, which are lozenges that dissolve in your mouth and are absorbed into your bloodstream through oral mucous membranes. A third option is a sublingual oil, which is placed under your tongue. There are many capillaries in the mucous membranes under your tongue, which allow effective transfer of the hormone into your body. Furthermore, we offer these oral formats as combinations of estrogen and progesterone.
For women with more a mild progesterone deficiency or more localized symptoms, a topical source of the hormone may prove more effective, that’s why Menopause & Hormone Specialty Center offers progesterone creams to women in Shreveport. Our topical hormone options also come in a gel form or patches in cases where those formats might suit your needs more effectively. Furthermore, our creams, gels, and patch come on estrogen-progesterone combination doses for women experiencing low progesterone and estrogen.
For women in Shreveport that require a more direct administration in order to manage their low progesterone, Menopause & Hormone Specialty Center offers progesterone injections. Progesterone injections are an effective method of ensuring that the hormone is delivered directly into your bloodstream and dispersed. Additionally, we carry out hormone pellet insertions into the upper buttock. Inserting a hormone pellet under the skin provides a consistent dose of both progesterone and even estrogen in combination situations.
