Women have unique health issues that can benefit from medications prepared by Fort Worth Pharmacy. Just as every woman is unique, so are the custom medication therapies prepared by our staff of pharmacists and certified pharmacy technicians. Fort Worth Pharmacy provides compounded pharmaceutical answers to help address all of your women’s health issues, including hormone replacement, fertility, menopause and sexual dysfunction. Our compounded medications come in a variety of dosage forms and types to satisfy your individual preferences.

Menopause

For women experiencing menopausal symptoms – such as hot flashes, vaginal dryness and insomnia – there are a number of treatment options that can be prescribed. To relieve the symptoms of menopause, doctors may prescribe bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (HRT.) This can involve the use of estrogen alone or with another hormone called progesterone. The two hormones help to regulate a woman’s menstrual cycle. Commercial, synthetic medications may have unwanted side effects and may not be tolerated by many women, so for women who prefer a more natural alternative, HRT is an important option.

Infertility

Infertility does not have a single cause because successful pregnancy is a multi-step chain of events. Simply described, pregnancy includes the following steps: A woman’s ovaries must be able to release a viable egg, which then must be able to travel down the fallopian tube. Sperm must be able to travel to the fallopian tube. The sperm and egg must unite to fertilize the egg. The fertilized egg must attach to the inside of a receptive uterus (or implant) and be nurtured by the body to allow the fetus to develop and grow until it is ready for birth. Problems with any of these steps can lead to infertility.

PMS

Premenstrual Syndrome (PMS) can include a range of physical, psychological and emotional symptoms related to a woman’s menstrual cycle. Treatment options include medications to correct hormone imbalances, including compounded HRT, lifestyle changes and nutritional supplements.

Sexual Dysfunction and Libido Enhancement

Premenstrual Syndrome (PMS) can include a range of physical, psychological and emotional symptoms related to a woman’s menstrual cycle. Treatment options include medications to correct hormone imbalances, including compounded HRT, lifestyle changes and nutritional supplements.

Psychological problems, such as untreated anxiety, depression, or stress can also affect women and their sexual health.

Sexual dysfunction can often be successfully treated with hormone therapy, to help a women regain the correct balance of hormones in her body. HRT is a safe, natural alternative for many women.

Men's Health

Men have unique health issues that often can benefit from medications prepared by a compounding pharmacy. Just as every man is unique, so are the custom medication therapies prepared by Fort Worth Pharmacy’s staff of pharmacists and certified pharmacy technicians.

Fort Worth Pharmacy provides compounded pharmaceutical answers to help solve many men’s health issues, including testosterone replacement, fertility, andropause and erectile dysfunction. Our compounded medications come in a variety of dosage forms and strengths to satisfy your individual needs. We offer hormonal (testosterone) options, as well as over-the-counter and prescription drug solutions.

Andropause

The term “male menopause” or “andropause” is sometimes used to describe decreasing testosterone levels in men related to aging that result in symptoms including physical, emotional, psychological and behavioral changes. Frequently, men notice a gradual loss of energy, loss of muscle, loss of mental focus, increased fat, decreased stamina, loss of libido, and sexual dysfunction. Virtually all men will experience a decline in hormone levels with age. Unfortunately, there is no way of predicting who will experience andropause symptoms of sufficient severity to seek medical help. According to the US Census Bureau, approximately 15 million men have low testosterone levels of which only 5-10% of these men will seek treatment.

Erectile Dysfunction

It’s estimated that erectile dysfunction (ED) affects more than 20 million men in the United States alone. The majority of those men are over 40 years old, but it can strike no matter what your age. Sometimes ED is an unfortunate side effect of a disease. For instance, men who have diabetes, decreased testosterone levels, high blood pressure, an enlarged prostate, or some other health conditions may get ED. Often times after prostate surgery, men experience ED due to nerve damage or other trauma to the male body. Sometimes smoking, alcohol use, or certain medications can all cause ED. It can even be the result of everyday pressures such as stress, anxiety, or just nervousness. Fortunately, no matter what the cause, in most cases Erectile Dysfunction can be successfully treated.

Testosterone Replacement

Testosterone is responsible for normal growth and development of male sex organs and maintenance of secondary sex characteristics. It is the primary androgenic hormone. When the testes fail to produce normal levels of testosterone, testosterone deficiency results. There are now a variety of products available to treat testosterone deficiency. Successful management of testosterone replacement therapy requires appropriate evaluation and an understanding of the benefits and risks of treatment.

Infertility

In the United States, approximately one in 10 couples, or 6.1 million men and women of reproductive age, are affected by infertility. It is a highly specialized field that involves great physiological detail but also has a strong emotional component. Infertility is defined by the inability to conceive after one year of unprotected

heterosexual intercourse or the inability to carry a pregnancy to term. Infertility may be caused by male factors, female factors, or a combination of both.
