FEMALE HORMONE IMBALANCE
As the female body gradually begins producing less estrogen, you may start to experience side effects which can vary from mild to severe. Female Hormone Imbalance can disrupt your daily routine, which is why PURE Executive Health & Wellness offers relief from your symptoms with hormone therapy.
Menopause is marked by a decrease in estrogen production, which is one of the hormones responsible for menstruation. This decrease in estrogen can affect your periods by causing an abnormal amount of bleeding, even when it is not your period. Our Hormone Replacement Therapy can help your body ease into this transition without having to suffer the side effects!
There are several symptoms of Female Hormone Imbalance which can negatively affect your daily routine. Here are some of the ones you may begin to notice.
During a person’s teen years, their bone mass is at its peak because new bone cells are always being created. As you age, bone loss is typical, but women lose bone more rapidly than men, especially during the first 4-8 years of menopause. This is caused by a lack of estrogen production which can eventually lead to osteoporosis and an increased chance of bone fractures.
One of the most common side effects of menopause is the occurrence of hot flashes. A hot flash is characterized by a sudden feeling of heat that spreads across the entire body. Your skin may begin to turn red, and you may also break out into a sweat. While hot flashes are not harmful, they can be embarrassing, inconvenient, and can also cause you to wake up during the night.
As estrogen production decreases, the vaginal lining becomes thinner and less elastic. This can lead to a higher chance of vaginal infection and pain during intercourse. The urinary tract may also become affected, and you may have an increase in urinary tract infections.
HORMONE REPLACEMENT THERAPY
Hormone Replacement Therapy is beneficial in treating these symptoms of menopause. By taking estrogen in the form of a pill, spray, gel, or patch, your body will absorb it into the bloodstream and distribute it to organs and tissues that need it. Depending on the severity of your symptoms you may be only given estrogen for several months at a time or continuously.
