Hormone Replacement for Women: Relieve Symptoms and Feel Great
Fatigued? Experiencing hot flashes or night sweats? Having difficulty sleeping? If you’re of perimenopausal or menopausal age, there’s a good chance that these (and other) symptoms are due to hormonal imbalance or insufficiency.
Hormonal changes are a normal part of aging. It doesn’t mean they’re pleasant.
As women get older, they experience hormonal changes associated with menopause. Levels of specific hormones can drop, and the balance between hormones can change. These deficiencies and imbalances, while something that happens as part of a woman’s normal course of life, can lead to a variety of unpleasant symptoms. They include:
- Hot flashes and night sweats
- Vaginal dryness
- Loss of interest in sex
- Sleep problems
- Many more
Individualized attention backed by a detailed understanding.
When it comes to hormones, “nuance” is the right word. And particularly so for women, whose treatment with hormone replacement therapy is not as straightforward as it tends to be for men. This is where our experience and knowledge are important.
Every woman is unique, meaning one of a kind. At the same time, symptoms can be the result of low levels of a hormone, or two hormones, or three, or the result of imbalances. In addition, levels can be affected by the stress and toxins that we normally encounter as we live our lives. Our experienced, compassionate medical professionals evaluate and carefully consider all of the many factors involved, including:
- Estrogen (estradiol) and progesterone levels
- Testosterone levels (free and total)
- Human growth hormone
- DHEA-S hormone
- Cortisol levels
- Thyroid function
- Health history
Comprehensive testing aimed to get you feeling not just better, but great.
Man Up WoMan Up, we run bloodwork and conduct a thorough evaluation and history, then take the care and time necessary to create a treatment plan that will work for you. One important consideration is the fact that “normal” hormone levels are not the same as optimal levels. Whereas many other providers are looking to bring hormone levels back to normal, our objective is to get you to where you’re feeling significantly better, like you remember.
