It’s no secret that our body experiences natural changes as we all age. But chances are, you’re reading this post because you know first-hand that some of these changes come with major symptoms of their own that aren’t so fun to deal with.
Women who experience hormone imbalances or are going through menopause are no stranger to common symptoms caused by their hormone levels dropping, such as mood swings, lack of energy, or thinning hair. These symptoms are inevitable results of hormone changes, just like menopause, but that doesn’t mean you can’t find relief!
Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) is a common and effective way to treat those pesky symptoms of perimenopause and menopause. So if you’ve been searching for a solution to the effects hormone imbalance has on your body, you’re going to want to sit back as we dive into the essentials you need to know about the popular hormone treatment for women, BHRT:
What is bioidentical hormone replacement therapy for women?
BHRT is a form of hormone replacement therapy that replaces hormones such as testosterone, estrogen, and progesterone in the body. And if you imagine a major surgical procedure to make BHRT happen—think again.
Bioidentical hormones, which have an identical molecular structure to the body’s natural hormones, are available in a variety of forms or therapy methods such as hormone patches, gels, creams, and even tablets. More specifically, at New Life Cosmetic Surgery and Wellness Center, Dr. Lee and his medical team use BHRT in pellet form, which is painlessly injected beneath a patient’s skin.
What are the benefits of BHRT for women?
If you’re experiencing the common symptoms of hormone imbalance such as fatigue, hot flashes, or excess weight, Dr. Lee may recommend BHRT to
address those unwanted changes. Besides helping your hormones return to balance, here are some other improvements and results women can expect to see with BHRT:
1. Reduced irritability and brain fog.
2. Relief from vaginal dryness and itchiness.
3. Fewer hot flashes.
4. Decrease in dry skin.
5. Increased energy.
6. Improved sleep.
7. Mood stabilization and depression and anxiety relief. 8. Enhance memory.
9. Relief for joint aches and pains.
10. Lowers risk of heart disease and type 2 diabetes.
At first glance, it may seem like BHRT only relieves menopause symptoms. But hormones like estrogen have a widespread impact on women’s health and have been shown to improve urinary tract health, heart, bone, hair health, and more.
