Interestingly enough, many of the symptoms or abnormalities you are experiencing can be related to a simple hormone imbalance. We can quickly identify the specific issue with a specialized blood analysis and reduce your symptoms by re-balancing your hormones—in many cases, in only a few visits.
It’s not uncommon to experience a hormone imbalance before menopause. In most cases, women may need progesterone or even testosterone to restore their physiological balance.
During menopause, a woman’s progesterone levels decrease below a normal level. Replacing estrogen and progesterone during this time period is great way to improve mood, libido and overall energy levels.
Once a baby is born, women typically experience a decrease in hormonal levels just after the placenta is detached. Unlike typical antidepressant medications, hormone replacement therapy treats the core of the problem and with reduced side effects.
Perimenopause is the phase preceding menopause, beginning the year after the termination of menses. The average age for this period is 47 and the average duration is 4 years. During this time biological, chemical, and endocrinological factors start to kick in. 90% of women suffer from menstrual irregularity syndromes in their perimenopausal years.
As a result of those syndromes, the 20+ years-long function of ovarian hormones is thrown out of balance. This can lead to alarming fluctuation—whether low or high—in estrogen levels and is usually preceded by a gradual waning of progesterone and testosterone.
Clinical warning signs during the Perimenopause phase usually include:
- Abnormality in menses – high or low in frequency, stretched or shorter, heavy or light.
- Mood Swings
- Prone to obesity or changes body-weight ratio
- Vasomotor – symptoms like hot bursts and sweaty nights.
- Sleep inconsistency
- Dry Vagina
- Urine fluctuation – frequent and sudden.
- Infection Urinary organ
- Increasing nervousness and depression
- Cognition damage- concentration problem and less memory power
- Diminishing Libido
- Changes in hair and skin characteristics
An American woman is most likely to face menopause when she is 51. This causes inconsistency in the normal levels of progesterone, estrogen and testosterone leading to these potentially dangerous symptoms and medical complications:
- Heart Problems
- Memory problems that lead to Alzheimer
- Colon Cancer
- Urogenital Weakness
The period following a birth can be an extremely challenging time for women. Major hormone fluctuations combined with sleepless nights caring for a newborn baby and a host of other factors can lead to major psychological changes. Antidepressants have been the go-to for women suffering from postpartum depression, but the success rate of this treatment has been mixed. Besides their mixed effectiveness, antidepressants also create unwanted side effects that can harm your body in the long- and short-term.
The most worthy treatments focus on the primary cause—the diminishing hormone levels caused by the removal of the placenta during delivery. The placenta produces a large amount of hormones in a woman’s body. Following a delivery one can continue to live a healthy life if that hormonal balance is restored through diet, exercise, and hormone replacement therapy.
