As hormones interact they can become imbalanced. Hot flashes, night sweats and vaginal dryness can be bothersome for women experiencing menopause. This is why it is critical for doctors to find the right hormone balance for each individual patient. There is no one-size-fits-all hormone therapy, as people find some symptoms more unmanageable than others. Addionally the risks, side effects and benefits vary with the different forms of treatment available. These factors should be discussed and monitored by a board certified physician for your health and safety.
Bioidentical Hormones are structurally identical to the hormones that your body creates naturally. Bioidentical hormone therapy is therefore an ideal alternative for those concerned with conventional hormone therapy. Although bioidentical hormones don't typically have side effects, it is still possible to experience headaches, irritability, mood swings, acne, difficulty sleeping, breast tenderness and itching at the application site.
During your visit, we will assess your symptoms and measure your hormone levels to get a baseline understanding of your hormone health. Then we will discuss with you and determine a customized bioidentical hormone therapy program that meets your specific needs. This therapy can be monitored and tweaked as needed to help you reach an ideal hormonal balance for healthy living.
