Hormone Imbalance in Women
What are Bio-identical Hormones?
Bioidentical hormone therapy, also known as or natural hormone therapy, is the use of hormones that are identical on a molecular level with the human body.
We feel our best when our hormones are at optimal levels. However, beginning in our early 30's, our hormone levels begin to decline. Signs of hormonal decline can begin as early as our late 40's. When hormones such as estrogen, progesterone, testosterone, thyroid, or cortisol levels become imbalanced or depleted, we start experiencing a host of unwanted symptoms.
If you are facing a hormone imbalance, you'll likely experience symptoms like:
Hot Flashes/night sweats
Changes in mood or energy levels
Thinning hair and dry skin/wrinkles
Decreased sexual function or libido
Decreased stamina and vitality
Muscle mass reduction
Weight gain/loss issues
Fatigue related thyroid issues
Cravings for sugar
Testosterone Replacement in Women
Testosterone is an important component of female sexuality. Restoring testosterone levels in women can improve the quality of life in terms of sexual libido, sexual pleasure and sense of well being and is associated with reduced anxiety, depression and improved mood.
Symptoms of low sex drive in women include:
- Never or only seldom having sexual fantasies or thoughts.
- Being concerned by your lack of sexual activity or fantasies.
- Loss of desire to initiate or participate in sexual activity, where a person is unable to maintain desire or interest during sexual activity.
- Frustration, grief, incompetence, loss, sadness, sorrow, or worry about lack of sexual interest.
- Having no interest in any type of sexual activity, including masturbation.
Is Hormone Therapy Right for Me?
Hormone replacement therapy is a very individualized process. Only after speaking with a medical provider and having lab work done can one determine if hormone therapy is right for you.
Our goal at Optimal Hormones is to find that OPTIMAL level, not just settle for normal. During the consultation we will discuss your health concerns, hormonal issues, and other needs to help you get relief from your symptoms and discuss if hormones, natural therapies or both could benefit you.
If you are struggling with losing weight, staying energized, or even sexual function, there could be a hormonal issue at play. Normal doesn't mean OPTIMAL. We are here to help you feel your best.
