Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) for Symptoms of Perimenopause and Menopause
Perimenopause and menopause can bring a range of physical and emotional symptoms that can significantly impact your quality of life. From hot flashes and night sweats to mood swings and low energy, these symptoms can make it difficult to get through the day. If you have tried various treatments without success, it may be time to consider Bio Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT).
BHRT is a personalized approach to hormone replacement therapy that aims to restore your hormone levels to their natural balance. Unlike traditional hormone replacement therapies that use a one-size-fits-all approach, BHRT is based on a thorough evaluation of your medical history, symptoms, and labs to review your hormone levels. Here at Health + Hormones this allows our provider to prescribe the right dose of hormones for your specific needs, ensuring that you receive the optimal benefit from treatment.
BHRT can effectively treat symptoms of menopause and perimenopause while also improving mental and sexual health, reducing cancer risks, and improving bone health. Here are a few ways that BHRT can improve your health:
- Alleviates Physical Symptoms
One of the primary benefits of BHRT is that it can help alleviate the physical symptoms of menopause. Hormones such as estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone play a vital role in regulating a woman’s menstrual cycle and maintaining overall health. As hormone levels decline during menopause, women may experience hot flashes, night sweats, and vaginal dryness. BHRT can help to restore these hormone levels, thereby reducing the severity of these symptoms.
- Improves Sexual Health
Decreased hormone levels can also lead to decreased libido and vaginal dryness, which can make sexual intercourse uncomfortable or even painful. BHRT can help to restore hormone levels, resulting in improved sexual health and increased sexual satisfaction. In addition, BHRT can also help to improve overall vaginal health, reducing the risk of infection and keeping the vaginal tissues healthy and moist.
- Reduces Cognitive Decline and Memory Loss
As women age, their risk of cognitive decline and memory loss increases. This is often due to declining hormone levels, especially estrogen. BHRT can help to restore estrogen levels, reducing the risk of cognitive decline and memory loss and improving overall brain function.
- Reduces the Risk of Osteoporosis
Osteoporosis is a condition that causes bones to become weak and brittle, increasing the risk of fractures. Women who are experiencing menopause are at an increased risk of developing osteoporosis due to declining hormone levels. BHRT can help to restore hormone levels, reducing the risk of osteoporosis and improving overall bone health.
- Improves Mood and Decreases Anxiety
Hormones play a crucial role in regulating a woman’s mood and emotional wellbeing. As hormone levels decline during menopause, women may experience mood swings, anxiety, and depression. BHRT can help to restore hormone levels, improving overall mood and reducing anxiety and depression, hot flashes, night sweats, mood swings, low energy, and more. By restoring your hormones to your optimal balance, we can help improve your overall health and wellbeing, allowing you to feel like yourself again.
In addition to relieving symptoms, BHRT has been shown to have positive effects on several health conditions related to hormone imbalances, such as osteoporosis, cardiovascular disease, and cognitive decline. By restoring your hormones to your optimal level, BHRT can help prevent these conditions and improve your overall health.
