What is menopause?

Menopause is a normal life-stage that the field of medicine defines as missing a period for 12 consecutive months. Menopause is a time of transition that not only marks the conclusion of your childbearing years but also creates significant changes in your body.
Your ovaries make less and less estrogen, and the level of other hormones in your body also wanes. Because these changes can be significant, this is an ideal time to consult with a practitioner at Artemis Menstrual Health and Gynecology.

The team assesses whether you’re in perimenopause, the stage before menopause, or menopause itself. They also offer lifestyle counseling and hormone therapy to help relieve menopausal symptoms that interfere with your quality of life.

What is bioidentical hormonal therapy?

Bioidentical hormone therapy works by replacing the hormones estrogen, progestin, and testosterone. The therapy not only addresses menopausal symptoms, but also protects you against bone loss, and lessens your risk of colon cancer.

As with any treatment, bioidentical hormone replacement carries some potential risks. Your practitioner can discuss the risks and benefits when you visit Artemis Menstrual Health and Gynecology for a consultation.

How do I start hormone therapy?

Your practitioner first recommends blood tests to assess your hormone levels. They review the results with you and discuss your treatment options. Because Artemis Menstrual Health and Gynecology takes a functional approach to hormonal imbalances, you can expect your plan to include recommendations for broad-based lifestyle improvements, individualized supplements, and medication for sexual dysfunction, if necessary.

In their experience, the team at Artemis Menstrual Health and Gynecology has found that poor functioning of the ovaries may often be related to adrenal fatigue or thyroid dysfunction. Because of this, they recommend balancing the output of your adrenal and thyroid glands before considering hormone replacement therapy.

Menopause is a natural life transition that may lead to unwelcome changes. If you’re ready to feel like yourself again, call the office or request a consultation online.

 

What are the signs of menopause?

Some women feel just a few moderate menopausal symptoms, while others suffer from more troublesome symptoms. Menopausal symptoms may include:

N

Hot flashes

N

Sexual Dysfunction

N

Night sweats

N

Sleep problems

N

Vaginal dryness

N

More frequent urination

N

More urinary tract infections (UTIs)

Menopause also causes changes to your bones. The decline in estrogen leads to rapid bone loss in the initial 4-8 years after menopause. Too much bone loss, in turn, increases the risk of osteoporosis and broken bones. 

Hormonal therapy, however, can rebalance your hormone levels by substituting the hormones your body no longer makes with plant-based ones.
