Hormone replacement therapy and menopause.

Hormone replacement therapy (HRT) is the most effective treatment for women suffering from severe menopausal symptoms. These symptoms include hot flashes, night sweats, insomnia, fatigue, memory loss, low sex drive, depression and more. Although menopause is a normal condition that all women experience as they age, some women find these symptoms are so severe that they interfere with their quality of life. 

The good news is that there are several treatment options available to help relieve these symptoms HRT medications include estrogen and progesterone. Women who have had a hysterectomy (had their uterus removed) can use estrogen alone but women who still have a uterus need to take progesterone in addition to estrogen. Our medical practitioners prescribe FDA approved bioidentical hormones. Bioidentical hormones come from plant-based sources (usually yams and soy) and have the same molecular structure of the hormones already found in your body. Bioidentical estrogen and progesterone medications come in different forms; skin patches, gels, creams, vaginal rings and tablets.
