Relieve The Symptoms Of Menopause

menopause sxs

Menopause is a natural part of life for women. It signifies a transition to a new stage in life and is accompanied by many internal changes that may result in physical changes and challenges. The decline of female hormone production brings on the process of going through menopause. This process can happen gently and gradually or, in some cases, rather abruptly. In both cases, it is vital to seek professional help to regulate hormone levels and ensure you aren’t at risk of developing chronic conditions.

What are the Symptoms of Menopause

Menopause is most infamously known for causing those sudden hot flashes that leave you dripping in sweat. But menopause affects your body in additional ways, too. As your hormone levels drop and become unbalanced during menopause, you may experience many types of issues, including:

  • Vaginal dryness
  • Night sweats
  • Mood swings
  • Slowed metabolism
  • Weight gain
  • Difficulty sleeping
  • Thinning of hair

How is Menopause Diagnosed?

When your menstrual cycles stop, and you go for 12 consecutive months without a period, you’re in menopause. According to the National Institute of Health, around 5% of women can enter menopause as early as their 40s, although it’s most common for menopause to happen around age 51.

During your menopause evaluation at Well Woman MD, Dr. Jen can discuss your symptoms with you. She may also request a blood draw to check your hormone levels.

What Helps Menopause Symptoms Without Hormones

There are a variety of reasons that a woman may experience hormone issues. The critical thing to know is that there is a solution! Bioidentical Hormone Therapy has been helping women regain hormone balance and restore their overall health and well-being. As highlighted in this study, BHRT has been associated with a lower risk of side effects while maintaining greater effectiveness than their synthetic and animal-derived counterparts.

How Do Bioidentical Hormones Work?

If you’re unsure what a bioidentical hormone is, you’re probably not the only one. Put simply; they are hormones derived from plant sources that have an identical chemical structure to those in the human body. They are designed to supplement the body’s existing hormones such as:

  • Estradiol
  • Estriol
  • Progesterone
  • Testosterone
  • DHEA
  • Thyroid hormones

Remaining healthy as we age depends on many things, including lifestyle and genetics. It also means monitoring any deficiencies that may arise. In the same way that we supplement vitamins and minerals, it’s also why we use Hormone Replacement Therapy to restore internal hormone balance. Many physicians focus on simply relieving symptoms with pharmaceutical pills, patches, injections, or creams. However, in order to return the body to a state of balance, it needs a source of bioavailable hormones and a precision delivery method to transport them through the bloodstream.

By far, the safest, most effective, and most convenient method is professionally administered bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT).

The Benefits of BHRT

There is a wide range of benefits associated with BHRT. The role hormones play in regulating the body can’t be understated. They are responsible for ensuring the function of so many essential systems, such as:

  • Energy levels
  • General mood
  • Sleep patterns
  • Blood pressure

After decades of treating women (and men) with this method, we’ve witnessed firsthand the life-changing impact pellet implant therapy has had on thousands of patients—whether it helped reverse serious osteoporosis, aided a Parkinson’s patient to make strides in mobility, or simply helped revive a marriage. Many say they’ve been given back what they thought they’d lost forever—their quality of life. We also use non-pellet Bio-identical Hormone options, which include creams, troches, and others
