You did not think menopause would be that bad. You figured that it was a natural transition in life. Everything changed when the symptoms started hitting you hard. You can’t sleep at night because night sweats and hot flashes wake you up. Your moods are like a yo-yo. Your weight is out of control even though you have not changed any of your habits. Hot flashes have taken over your life during the day. Vaginal changes make you very uncomfortable. As far as the bedroom goes, your love life has really taken a turn for the worst because you have no interest. You’re tired all of the time and you’ve had enough. Bio-identical hormone replacement can help you to take on the changes that come with menopause.
What’s Going On During Menopause?
Menopause is the stage in life when your reproductive system completely shuts down. Your menstrual cycle will end. It is common to reach this phase of life at 50 or beyond. However, it could happen sooner.
Regardless of when menopause sets in, you could experience symptoms for years before menstruation comes to a halt. These symptoms are caused by a drop in your estrogen and progesterone levels. As you have discovered on your own, these hormones do more than simply regulate your reproductive processes. They play a major role in helping you to feel your best.
How Can Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Help You?
The whole idea behind bio-identical hormone replacement is to restore balance when it comes to your hormonal levels. Bio-identical hormones usually come from natural sources, such as plants, and they have the same chemical makeup as those hormones that are found in your own body. Once your hormones are balanced, you will find relief from your bothersome symptoms that have taken over your life.
What Do You Need to Do to Get Started?
Consult with our medical professionals at ProMD Health to begin bio-identical hormone replacement. During an appointment at our office in Baltimore or Washington, DC, our doctor will ask questions, discuss your symptoms and perform a physical examination.
