About Hormone Treatments
Once it has been determined that you are in menopause, we can make recommendations on hormone replacement therapies. Based on your blood tests, physical examinations, and preferences, your OBGYN at Essential Women's Health Associates can build a treatment plan catering to your needs. We offer a variety of hormone delivery systems for replacement therapy or other gynecological conditions that can be managed with our perimenopause to postmenopause services.
Visit our office in Las Vegas or Henderson, NV to explore your options in hormone replacement therapies. We offer pills, patches, creams, gels, suppositories, and injections, for your convenience. Our OBGYN staff at Essential Women's Health Associates will be happy to talk you through the process and will look forward to learning more about you in your private consultation.

"Dr. Garg has been one of the only doctors, in my experience, to make me feel at ease and feeling grateful after leaving appointments. He delivered my daughter in 2011 and had taken me in when I was in my third trimester and switched providers. It was a night and day difference. He genuinely listens. I've sat in the exam room in tears and he never made me feel judged or silly. He answers my questions and is very real and straightforward while providing empathy and understanding. I'm hesitant to refer him to others ONLY because I don't want him to have too many patients that he won't continue to see me too haha. I have been trying to stay with him as much as possible during this second pregnancy and wouldn't have it any other way."- Anonymous / Healthgrades / Apr 28, 2021
"Dr. Garg performed my C-section and was amazing! I had some complications with previous pregnancies and he truly was an advocate for me and let me be an advocate for myself and respected my wishes. He answered all my questions and eased my worries when it came to delivery!"- M.F. / Google / Jan 19, 2021

Hormone Treatment Details
Pills, patches, creams, gels, injections, and more can help you through your transition in and out of menopause. These interventions are not long-term medications. We can have an ongoing conversation throughout your treatment on when to cut back or discontinue hormone replacement therapies.
If oral medications are effective and are tolerated well, you may be able to take prescription oral medications for hormone replacement.
Hormone Patches and Creams
By wearing a hormone patch, you can safely absorb your hormone replacement therapy to avoid transferring the hormone to others. With patches, creams, or gels, you will have the benefit of not having to remember to take a pill each day. We advise our patients to apply hormone replacement creams or gels to the arms or legs. Once absorbed, the topical hormone will find its way into the bloodstream.
Depending on the type of injection you need, you may receive in-office injections or self-administer your injections in the privacy of your own home.
To help with vaginal dryness, itch, and atrophy, hormone suppositories can be inserted directly into the vagina for menopausal relief in the area.
Topical creams and gels have to be absorbed by your skin before you can hug, touch, snuggle, or hold anyone else (and this includes pets). You do not want to accidentally give someone else part of your dose!
Also, there are risks and benefits to each type of hormonal intervention we provide for menopausal relief. We will have an in-depth conversation about which one is right for you. There may be some trial and error involved in finding the best delivery method for your hormone replacement, but it will be worth the time and effort to feel a decrease in symptoms.
