Menopause Treatment Q & A
What are the symptoms of menopause?
Menopause is medically defined as going at least 12 months without a menstrual period. But for years before menopause, throughout menopause, and shortly after the onset of menopause, you can experience a wide variety of symptoms, including:
- Hot flashes
- Pain during intercourse
- Vaginal dryness
- Weight gain
- Low libido
- Night sweats
- Fatigue and decrease in energy
The menopause symptoms you experience may vary depending on your hormone levels and stage of menopause, such as perimenopause or postmenopause. It’s important to start treatment before your uncomfortable symptoms start affecting your daily life and putting a strain on your relationship.
How are menopause symptoms treated?
With their expertise in effective menopause therapies, Gordon Hart, PA-C, and the team of specialists at Balance Hormone Center can help you get through uncomfortable side effects and start feeling like yourself again. Depending on your stage of menopause and symptoms, your menopause treatment plan can include:
- Nutritional supplements
- Intravenous (IV) therapy
- Weight loss planning
- Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT)
The benefit of bioidentical hormones, as opposed to synthetic varieties, is that the hormones are very structurally similar to the hormones you naturally produce. Not only does this help you have results faster, but it can also decrease your risk of hormonal side effects, like mood swings.
When does menopause therapy start working?
It takes some time for your hormones to stabilize once you start your personalized menopause therapy plan at Balance Hormone Center. In many cases though, women report that within a few short weeks of starting their treatment, they begin to notice an improvement and more energy.
To help your body adjust to your new menopause therapy, your dedicated practitioner starts you out gradually. If you need hormone replacement therapy, for instance, they might start you out with the lowest possible dose to further decrease your risk of side effects. During your follow-up visit, your practitioner can always make changes to your treatment, including medications or hormones, as needed.
