When a woman enters perimenopause or menopause, her hormone balance can shift dramatically. This can generate a variety of uncomfortable and undesirable hormonal imbalance symptoms that can interfere with the quality of life. If you think you may be struggling with a hormone imbalance, Serenity Women’s Care and Aesthetics has options to help.
What Are the Symptoms of Hormone Imbalance?
Symptoms of hormone imbalance may include, but are not limited to:
- Hot flashes
- Difficulty concentrating
- Weight gain
- Mood swings
- Night sweats
- Vaginal dryness
- Painful intercourse
What Are My Hormonal Imbalance Treatment Options?
While your hormones should eventually regain their balance once you move through menopause, there is no reason you should have to suffer through this time in your life. That is why at Serenity Women’s Care, we are proud to offer you HRT, or Hormone Replacement Therapy. Through this procedure, we generate a personalized protocol to restore your hormonal balance as quickly and as fully as possible.
How Does Hormone Replacement Therapy Work?
First, at your consultation, we will get to know you and your medical history. We will discuss your symptoms as well as environmental factors that may be affecting your condition. Additionally, we will likely want to do a complete physical exam to rule out other sources of your symptoms. Once we have a better understanding of your particular needs, we can put together a plan to replace some of your lost hormones, such as estrogen, testosterone, or thyroid hormone. Your hormone therapy could take the form of pellets we insert under the skin, creams, patches, or gels that allow you to absorb the hormones through the skin, lozenges or troches (tro-keys) that go under the tongue, or capsules or pills taken orally.
How Well Does Hormone Replacement Therapy Work?
The effectiveness of HRT varies from patient to patient. We will monitor you closely and regularly to make sure the treatment is working and to be alert to any side effects. We will tweak the protocol as necessary to produce the best results. Through careful regulation, this treatment can provide relief from menopausal symptoms after about two weeks in most cases.
