Learning About Systemic Hormone Therapy
Systemic hormone therapy means a patient takes a pharmacological agent that goes through the woman system.
Dr. Charles Kalstone, Obstetrician and Gynecologist with Baptist Health South Florida, explains this is opposite to local hormone therapy, which will be estrogen absorbing trough the vagina into the system.
Systemic hormone therapy comes in different forms: pills, transdermal patches or gel. The doctor affirms he discusses with the patient which is more convenient for them.
