Menopause & Lost Hormones

Often, the importance of hormones in your life is forgotten about until a shortage happens and you start experiencing a few symptoms.  For women, menopause is that time where the body gradually produces less and less of the hormones, estrogen and progesterone.   
 
During this change, women begin to question what is happening and search for ways to feel better if their menopausal symptoms significantly disrupt their daily life.  A variety of options are available but an individualized approach should be implemented as each woman is unique and requires a treatment that specifically suits them.  Which menopause treatment in Indianapolis will suit you?
 
Balancing Your Hormones!
 
At each stage of menopause, the key is to monitor and maintain hormone levels to achieve a balance where symptoms are no longer an issue.  With lighter symptoms, you may require a mild form of treatment to feel like yourself as hormones could only need a minor adjustment.  Symptoms can vary depending on which phase of menopause you are going through.
 
More severe or frequent symptoms such as hot flashes, night sweats, and vaginal dryness could be an indication that your hormone levels are not balanced.  Ordinarily, menopausal hormone therapy is for women that are troubled by these symptoms on a regular basis.  
 
In hormone replacement therapy, bioidentical hormones are used to manage symptoms caused by menopause.  When hormone levels are balanced, women also benefit by reducing the chance of bone loss and developing osteoporosis in the future.  Bioidentical hormones are a natural hormone therapy where the hormones used are identical on a molecular level to the hormones in a woman’s body.
 
Bioidentical Hormones In Indianapolis
 
The benefits and risks of using bioidentical hormones should be discussed with Dr. Mac or Kristi before deciding whether this is a suitable treatment for you.  Through an individualized approach, each woman is monitored so that the lowest dose is used over the shortest possible duration to relieve and manage menopausal systems.
