The natural balance of your hormones can be upset by many factors, including stress and the natural aging process.

Why Do I Need Hormone Therapy?
Hormone therapy for women may be done to replace estrogen and progesterone when levels of these reproductive hormones are low, or they’re no longer produced by the body.
hormone replacement therapy for men may be done to relieve symptoms of low testosterone, such as erectile dysfunction, reduced libido, fatigue or depression.
There are more than 50 endocrine glands in the body that produce hormones, and any of them may become imbalanced. For example, the pituitary gland may not make enough growth hormone or the thyroid gland may not make enough of its hormones. Hormone replacement therapy may be recommended for any condition that causes the body’s natural hormone level to be too high or too low.
