Hormone Management Treatment
All women will experience menopause; however, some women will experience symptoms of menopause that are significant or persistent enough to impact their daily routine and quality of life. The symptoms you are experiencing are a result of the sudden decline in the reproductive hormones estrogen, progesterone and testosterone. If you are experiencing menopause symptoms it’s important that you turn to a gynecologist who can help you get your symptoms under control.
Our gynecologist Dr. Miriam Torres and her medical team have been helping women manage menopause symptoms such as hot flashes, night sweats, vaginal dryness, reduced sex drive, weight gain, and mood swings. We know that while some treatments may work well for some women they aren’t right for everyone. Our gynecological team will work with you to find the right hormone management plan to fit your needs and to eliminate your symptoms.
There are several ways in which we help menopausal women manage their hormones and the plan we create for you will usually include a variety of healthy living and lifestyle modifications, supplements, and hormone therapy to help balance your hormones.
Many women will experience mild symptoms that they can control on their own; however, when symptoms are too severe to be managed this is usually when they turn to us. Lifestyle modifications alone can do wonders for women going through menopause. Lifestyle modifications include,
- Eating a healthy, balanced diet that is low in sugar and high in fiber
- Getting regular physical activity
- Avoiding alcohol or spicy foods, which can trigger hot flashes
- Wearing cool, light layers that are easier to remove when it gets hot
- Getting adequate sleep every night
- Quitting or avoiding cigarettes or tobacco products
Along with these simple everyday changes, our gynecologist may also choose to provide alternative or complementary therapies such as prescription medications to tackle specific symptoms such as vaginal dryness. We can also help you decide whether hormone replacement therapy is right for you. Just as the name suggests, this treatment provides you with hormones that your body no longer makes during menopause to alleviate symptoms such as hot flashes and vaginal dryness.
Here at Serenity Gynecology & Functional Medicine, we offer a variety of hormone replacement therapy options including pellet hormone therapy, which balances estrogen and testosterone in menopausal women. These pellets are placed under the skin where they slowly release these bioidentical hormones to help manage your menopause symptoms for up to 5 months before needing to be replaced.
If you are dealing with symptoms of menopause and want to find out if you could benefit from hormone replacement therapy or other treatment options then schedule a consultation with Serenity Gynecology & Functional Medicine today at (817) 280-9616.
