While menopause is not a disease, it can certainly feel like one. Women tend to become emotional, upset, their energy is drained and, in many cases, they become depressed. There is a way to lessen the control that hormones has on the human body, and that is with hormone therapy.
Dr. John Woodward has been practicing medicine for since 1968 and specializes in women’s hormone replacement therapy. Women who are going through menopause no longer have to suffer what they cannot control. Now all you have to do is recognize the “symptoms” of menopause and ask about female hormone therapy.
Menopause is an example of a severe hormone change. Menopause is defined as starting one year after the last menstrual period. If you are going through menopause, Dr. Woodward can help lighten severe symptoms. Some symptoms of menopause include:
- Decreased fertility
- Vaginal dryness
- Hot flashes
- Sleep disturbances
- Mood swings
- Increased abdominal fat
- Thinning hair
- Loss of breast fullness
If you are experiencing these symptoms, you may want to get female hormone replacement therapy.
Hormone Replacement Therapy has gone through many trials since 1993. Now we have a better idea of what is good for you and what is not. For example, now everyone knows that oral HRT is bad for you because it causes an increase triglyceride levels, C-Reactive protein and prohypertensive and pro-thrombotic factors that are the burdens of portal absorption and first-pass liver impact. Transdermal and intravaginal administration are preferable, or intra-uterine (Mirena IUD) for progesterone. It is important to understand what you are doing before you go through any kind of medical treatment and Hormone Replacement Therapy is no exception. Never be afraid to ask questions when it comes to your treatments.
