Menopause, a natural, oftentimes uncomfortable, part of a woman’s health. Menopause marks the time when a woman is no longer fertile and goes 12 months without getting a period. These 12 months can be difficult as menopause comes with a variety of symptoms that can interfere with your love life. The good news is, you don’t have to suffer during this time as there is a treatment option that will alleviate symptoms and get you feeling back to yourself. At our San Antonio hormone therapy clinic, we offer natural hormone therapy that’s designed to offer relief to women experiencing menopause.
The Effects of Menopause Your Body
Before experiencing hormone replacement therapy benefits, menopause can cause a variety of disruptive symptoms such as hot flashes, night sweats, disturbed sleep, painful intercourse, vaginal discomfort, and trouble concentrating. Of course, all of these symptoms can interfere with day-to-day activities, upsetting a woman’s quality of life. Worse than that, menopause can lead to health conditions as the decline of estrogen heightens your risk for heart disease, weight gain, and osteoporosis.
Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy
Hormone replacement therapy is a treatment that is specified to your hormone levels and your body’s needs. In bioidentical hormone replacement therapy, BioTE pellets are administered and circulate throughout your bloodstream targeting a variety of symptoms such as night sweats, mood swings, difficulty sleeping, low libido, and vaginal dryness. These pellets last anywhere from four to five months and can be administered two to three times per year.
Further, these pellets are derived from your blood sample and developed to fit your body specifically and correct your hormone levels. Natural hormone therapy is performed with your very own sample without artificial chemicals and is the best way to go when correcting hormone imbalances caused by menopause.
Hormone Replacement Therapy Benefits
At our San Antonio hormone therapy clinic, our goal is to provide all of our patients with relief from the discomforts that come with menopause. Hormone replacement therapy has proven to relieve symptoms such as hot flashes, night sweats, vaginal dryness, and even bone loss. It can also improve your sexual relations and your overall health and quality of life. What’s best, it’s a treatment that we can closely monitor and calibrate based on your body’s needs.
The length of time you will need to be on bioidentical hormone replacement therapy will depend on your health needs and goals as well as the state of your health at the time of your initial appointment. A long-term plan may be needed to reduce your risk of osteoporosis, the leading cause of the breakdown of bone density that results from the loss of estrogen.
