Women develop hormonal imbalances starting around 30 to 40 years of age. Bio-identical hormone replacement therapy can help a women balance her hormones in a more natural way. The type of therapy needed is determined by the deficiency of the following hormones: Progesterone, Testosterone, Estrone, and/or Estradiol.
Today, many women are low in progesterone and testosterone due to high levels of estrogen. Reasons for hormonal changes can be due to diet, abnormal levels of stress, or after a hysterectomy. Hormonal changes can occur during peri-menopause and menopause therefore bio-identical hormone replacement can help stabilize levels to improve health and wellness.
Peri-menopause starts when the ovaries are not producing adequate amounts of estrogen and progesterone.
Common symptoms women can experience include:
- weight gain
- irregular periods
- severe PMS
- heavier periods
Menopause can cause women to have a more dramatic decline in hormone production. The body no longer receives hormones from the ovaries, but instead hormone production comes from the adrenal gland hormone stores to secure hormones.
Women in menopause can experience symptoms such as:
- hot flashes
- vaginal dryness
- weight loss resistance
- night sweats
- low libido
- lack of motivation
