Women Health Conditions Treated with Bioidentical Hormone Therapy
As a woman, you learn to nurture others from a young age. While caring for your children, spouse, and loved ones comes naturally, it may be harder for you to spend time and resources caring for yourself. This is especially true as you enter into perimenopause and then complete menopause. You try not to complain and just live with the symptoms the best you can. However, you must make caring for yourself a priority in order to overcome symptoms related to hormonal imbalance in order to get the most out of your life. Whether you are already well into menopausal years, or you are experiencing hormone decline for another reason, Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapies available today offer alternative treatments for a wide variety of medical conditions. Dr. Jerrold Weinberg of Women’s Health and Menopause Center in West Bloomfield, Michigan uses natural hormone replacement therapy to treat common women’s health conditions, due to hormone imbalance, in women.
Common Problems Associated With Hormone Imbalance in Women
Whether your symptoms are related to menopause issues, adrenal fatigue, thyroid problems, or premenstrual syndrome, a Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy program can help you feel better. You may be a candidate for Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy if you regularly struggle with one or more of the following issues:
- Depression and Mood Swings
This is a common problem for women during pre-menopause and menopause due to wildly fluctuating hormones. Up to 15 percent of women at this life stage report feelings of despair and depression, which is often made worse by the other physical symptoms associated with hormonal imbalance. Frequently changing moods is also common, especially the tendency to feel easily irritated.
This is the clinical term to describe tissue that grows outside of the uterus. It may appear on your vagina, bladder, fallopian tubes, ovaries, or the side of your pelvic wall. Endometriosis is quite painful for some women. Traditional doctors often choose to remove the growths through surgery, although balancing your hormones may make them dissipate naturally.
When your hormones are out of balance, you may experience all-day fatigue that does not correspond to how much sleep you got the previous night. However, sleep problems such as insomnia, waking in the middle of the night, and sleep apnea are also common.
- Uterine fibroids grow in the connective tissue and muscles of the uterus. They may appear in your uterus, outside of it, or on top of it. Fibroids can cause irregular bleeding, heavy bleeding, or even cancer in rare cases. Some doctors treat large clusters of fibroids by performing a hysterectomy, thus sending the woman into early menopause.
- Hot Flashes and Night Sweats
A hot flash is a sudden, intense sensation of heat that usually occurs on your face. It causes profound sweating due to the hormonal changes happening within your body. When you experience night sweats, you typically wake up drenched in sweat and the sheets on your bed are also wet.
- Low Sexual Libido
During your midlife years, the hormones estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone change rapidly in your body. Some women experience estrogen dominance, which can negatively affect their sex drive. Balancing the hormones and eating a healthy diet is often enough to correct this problem.
- Memory Problems and Brain Fog
Most people chalk up memory loss to a normal sign of aging, but this isn’t always the case. Hormonal imbalance can cause you to forget how to do simple tasks, lose your train of thought, or completely blank out important appointments. When you experience brain fog, it means that your thinking feels fuzzy and you have difficulty concentrating.
- Premenstrual Symptoms
Most women experience some symptoms related to their upcoming period, but PMS can be truly unbearable for those with a hormonal imbalance. This is caused by a drastic fluctuation of estrogen and progesterone during the monthly cycle. The symptoms associated with PMS, such as bloating and irritability, are much worse when a hormone imbalance is present.
- Sexual Dysfunction
Imbalanced or deficient hormone levels can present a host of problems in the female reproductive system. Low libido can be just the start of the issue, and can be worsened by the onset of one or many symptoms of sexual dysfunction. Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy designed to optimize hormone levels and achieve and sustain hormonal balance can greatly reduce or eliminate the signs of sexual dysfunction in women.
- Weight Gain
This problem is one of the most frustrating for women because it often happens in spite of their best efforts to maintain a healthy weight. When proper nutrition and exercise are not enough, balancing the hormones helps in the effort to lose weight.
