While it’s true that menopause is a natural part of life, the symptoms that accompany this transition can be distressing and significantly disrupt the way a woman feels and functions day-to-day. Balancing hormones is essential for healthy aging.
The multidisciplinary team of professionals at Executive Medicine of Texas provides bioidentical hormone therapy to ease menopause-related symptoms and improve your quality of life.
Our anti-aging and hormone specialist, Mark Anderson MD, MPH, and the rest of our team, take great care in creating individualized treatment plans to address hormonal imbalance.
Menopause marks the end of a woman's reproductive years, and develops due to a decrease in the production of hormones such as estrogen and progesterone.
This hormonal change can trigger myriad symptoms, including hot flashes, sleep disturbances, mood swings, and cognitive changes that can make your brain feel foggy. Many women who go through the menopause transition complain of having trouble concentrating and having memory issues.
Not every woman experiences these symptoms in the same way, however. For some women, the symptoms can be relatively mild and short-lived. Others can have severe symptoms that last for years.
Bioidentical hormone pellet therapy
Bioidentical hormone pellet therapy replenishes hormones that the body no longer produces in sufficient amounts. Unlike conventional hormone replacement therapies, bioidentical hormones are chemically identical to those your body produces naturally.
Pellet therapy involves inserting a small pellet under the skin. These pellets, which are roughly the size of a grain of rice, release a steady dose of hormones over several months, mimicking the body's natural hormone delivery.
This reduces the risk of receiving too much or too little hormone so you get just what your body needs.
Alleviating menopausal symptoms
Hormone replacement therapy is an effective approach to relieving many menopausal symptoms. It can reduce hot flashes, improve your sleep quality, boost your mood, and enhance cognitive function. Additionally, it can increase energy levels and improve sexual health.
Every woman's experience with menopause and bioidentical hormone pellet therapy is unique, but many women report improvements in their symptoms in 3-5 weeks.
Bioidentical hormone therapy is safe
Bioidentical hormone pellet therapy is generally considered safe, with most women tolerating the treatment well. Rest assured, our team at Executive Medicine of Texas works closely with you to monitor your response to the therapy and tweak your dose so you feel better. Our providers address any concerns promptly.
