When women start to lose hormones in their 40s and 50s, and sometimes even earlier, it can wreak havoc. The physical and emotional effects can range in severity, but at the very least they are a nuisance. Symptoms may include hot flashes, night sweats, loss of libido, vaginal dryness, fatigue, mood swings, hair loss, memory lapses, weight gain, and more.
Thankfully, there is a solution to most of these problems. Menopause is a direct result of your body not producing the hormones estrogen and progesterone as it once did. That is why menopause and hormone replacement go hand in hand. To ease your menopausal symptoms, consider the power and effectiveness of bioidentical hormone replacement therapy.
Estrogen therapy is the most highly effective prescription medication for treating menopause symptoms and, in light of recent research, is still safe and effective for many women when used for fewer than five years.
To get started, some tests will need to be performed. Based on the results of these tests, you will be prescribed the correct dosage of hormones, in the form of a pill, patch, or gel.
