Hormonal imbalance often underlies a variety of physical and emotional discomforts, from hot flashes to depression. Hormone therapy, a treatment modality that I provide at Adair Family Clinic & Medspa , can alleviate these symptoms, and this comprehensive guide will explain how.
Hot flashes, the sudden, intense feelings of warmth, are often tied to fluctuating estrogen levels during menopause. Hormone therapy replaces or supplements these waning hormones, restoring your body's equilibrium and curbing the frequency and severity of hot flashes.
Night sweats can disrupt sleep, leaving you tired and irritable. Hormone therapy can manage these episodes by supplementing key hormones such as progesterone, known to aid sleep, thereby reducing night sweats and restoring peaceful rest.
Persistent mood swings might be a sign of hormonal imbalance. Hormone therapy works by introducing a customized amount of bio-identical hormones into your system, effectively restoring balance and smoothing out those emotional peaks and valleys.
Depression and anxiety can often be traced back to low levels of hormones like estrogen and progesterone. By supplementing these hormones in a dose specific to your hormone levels, hormone therapy can help elevate mood, reduce feelings of anxiety, and bring about emotional stability.
Vaginal dryness and painful intercourse are common complaints during menopause and perimenopause, largely due to decreasing estrogen levels. Hormone therapy addresses this by boosting estrogen levels, which improves vaginal lubrication and elasticity, making sex comfortable and pleasurable again.
Moreover, low libido and a lack of sexual interest are common but often overlooked symptoms of hormonal imbalance. Hormone therapy can supplement key sex hormones, like estrogen and testosterone, which play a significant role in maintaining your sexual drive and interest.
For those struggling with urinary incontinence, hormone therapy can be a game-changer. Estrogen plays a vital role in maintaining the health of the urinary tract. Supplementing estrogen through hormone therapy can strengthen urinary tract tissues, helping you regain bladder control.
Insomnia can be tied to low progesterone levels, a hormone that facilitates sleep. Hormone therapy can supplement progesterone, promoting better sleep patterns and helping you to sleep through the night.
Memory problems and difficulty concentrating can also be linked to hormonal imbalance. Hormone therapy, by supplementing key hormones like estrogen, can improve brain function, enhancing focus and memory.
