Women’s Hormone Replacement
As most women and husbands know, a women’s hormones can have a major impact on how she feels. The gift (and the curse for some women) of being able to grow another human being inside their body means that their “sex hormones” (i.e. progesterone, estrogen, testosterone) fluctuate wildly over the course of a month. Then, if a baby doesn’t implant securely onto the wall of the mother’s uterus, menstruation (bleeding) occurs. Oh the joy, right?
A large portion of these women (pre-menopausal) experience a range of symptoms during parts of their “cycle”. These symptoms can range from fairly mild unpleasant or annoying symptoms to severely debilitating symptoms that can effect their ability to work and interact with others in a normal capacity.
After a women’s child bearing years are over (menopausal) the party doesn’t stop. She now has the joy of dealing with an almost complete lack of the “sex hormones” we previously mentioned. This lack of hormones can bring about a slew of problems that range from fatigue, lack of sex drive, weight gain, low mood, low motivation, weak bones, increased risk for heart disease, dementia, and more. The list is long. The evidence is pretty clear that the body doesn’t work near as well when it’s without healthy hormone levels.
The good news is this doesn’t have to be you or a loved one’s reality. The hot flashes, fatigue, weight gain, and moodiness, etc. that our mothers and grandmothers had to suffer with you do not! Whether your pre-menopausal or post-menopausal we can likely help. Bio-identical hormone replacement/optimization can alleviate these issues, allowing you to feel better and live a healthier, more productive life.
Treatment options often will include oral and topical hormones. Lab testing and office visits are done periodically to confirm healthy optimal levels and to monitor for any potential side effects. Ensuring optimal levels allows you to realize the most benefit from therapy.
