While being a natural part of the aging process, menopause can have a significant or even dramatic effect on your life. Hot flushes are unpleasant experiences that make your days and nights heavier, and the loss of sexual drive will affect your self-esteem and may have a negative effect on your love life.
Still, menopausal symptoms can be even more severe. Hormonal imbalances caused by menopause may cause chronic insomnia, extreme tiredness, and depression, draining you of the energy you once were known for, and that always made you feel like you could accomplish anything. In addition to that, menopause is also tied to osteoporosis, colorectal cancer, and heart disease. Yes, this is a big deal that requires medical attention.
The good news is that bioidentical hormone replacement therapy can greatly help—and we’re happy to say we’ve seen many of our female patients at Fountain of You MD improve significantly with HRT to reduce disease.
The approach we use at our clinic in Hampton Roads is very safe. We use natural bioidentical progesterone treatments designed to restore hormone levels. Since ovaries and adrenal glands of women struggling with menopausal symptoms are no longer producing progesterone as they once did, we use Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy to compensate for this imbalance.
As a result of HRT treatment, our patients have the harsh effects of menopause dramatically reduced in their lives. They stop feeling exhausted all the time, they sleep better, their sexual drive and sex life improve, their tendency to gain weight due to menopause is reversed, and they are less exposed to bone density loss and heart disease.
When adequately administered at a specialized hormone treatment clinic such as our practice in the Hampton Roads area, Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy can have remarkable benefits to women’s health. It is a much safer alternative to synthetic progesterone, which we never use, and it can restore your energy, vigor, general health, and sense of well-being.
