Hot flashes and night sweats are two of the most bothersome symptoms of menopause.

The sudden decrease in estrogen that occurs during this stage of life can leave many women feeling uncomfortable, fatigued, and at their wit’s end.

At Epiphany Clinic, we offer Estrogen Therapy, a treatment designed to alleviate these symptoms and bring back your sense of well-being.

Read on to discover how Estrogen Therapy can help.

What is Estrogen Therapy?

Estrogen Therapy is a form of hormone replacement therapy (HRT) that uses supplemental estrogen to counter the decline in hormones that naturally occurs during menopause.

It can be administered in various forms, including:

  • Pills. Oral estrogen pills are one of the most common methods and offer a convenient way to treat menopausal symptoms.
  • Patches. Estrogen patches adhere to the skin and release a consistent amount of estrogen throughout the day.
  • Creams and Gels. Topical applications can be directly applied to the skin and are particularly useful for addressing localized symptoms like vaginal dryness.
  • Vaginal Rings. These rings are placed inside the vagina to release a steady dose of estrogen directly to the affected area.

How Estrogen Therapy Eases Hot Flashes and Night Sweats

Estrogen Therapy works by stabilizing hormone levels, which can effectively reduce or eliminate the intensity and frequency of hot flashes and night sweats.

Here’s a closer look at the factors that make Estrogen Therapy beneficial:

Regulating Body Temperature

Hot flashes occur when the hypothalamus, the brain’s temperature-regulating center, is disrupted due to low estrogen. Estrogen therapy helps regulate this mechanism, reducing the sudden, intense warmth associated with hot flashes.

Balancing Hormones

By supplementing declining estrogen levels, Estrogen Therapy can bring hormonal balance back to the body. This balance reduces the likelihood of night sweats, which can disrupt sleep and leave women feeling fatigued during the day.

Enhancing Sleep Quality

Night sweats often cause frequent awakenings, leading to poor sleep quality. By minimizing these episodes, Estrogen Therapy can help women sleep more soundly, improving overall health and reducing stress.

Improving Overall Comfort

Hot flashes and night sweats can result in discomfort and embarrassment, especially when they occur during social interactions or at work. Alleviating these symptoms through Estrogen Therapy helps women regain confidence and feel more at ease in their daily lives.

Boosting Mood and Reducing Stress

Fluctuating hormones during menopause can cause mood swings and heightened stress levels. Estrogen Therapy helps stabilize mood by replenishing hormone levels, which can contribute to reducing the anxiety and stress often linked with hot flashes and night sweats.

Vascular Health Improvement

Menopause can affect vascular health, leading to irregular blood flow that may worsen hot flashes and night sweats. Estrogen Therapy helps maintain healthier blood vessels, improving circulation and reducing the severity of these temperature-related symptoms.
