Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement

We all go through physiological changes as we age. Most of those changes occur within our bodies with decreased production of hormones causing hormone imbalance. For women, those changes often lead to menopause.

hormone-replacementBefore menopause, women go through two other hormonal stages: premenopause (when a woman’s menstrual cycle is entirely regular) and perimenopause (the “transitional” time between the ages of 35 and 50 when women experience certain hormonal fluctuations). Following menopause is the time known as postmenopause (when 12 full months have elapsed after the final menstrual period).

During these times, women will experience many physical and psychological changes.

Some of the symptoms of hormone imbalance include:

  • Hot flashes
  • Night sweats
  • Mood swings
  • Urinary tract infections
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Insomnia
  • Unexplained weight gain

The symptoms mentioned above are just a few that a woman may experience. However, you should also be aware of certain long-term complications that can result from hormone imbalance.
