What Is Hormone Wellness Therapy?
Everyone experiences hormone fluctuations in their body as they age. Major life moments such as giving birth and entering menopause or andropause can jumpstart these changes. At any point, these fluctuations may cause a noticeable imbalance that affects the way you live your life.
Although hormone imbalances can occur at any age, they’re most common in adults over 40. Because there are so many types of imbalances caused by various factors, a wide variety of treatment options are available. Mile High OB/GYN takes a personalized approach to hormone wellness therapy. You and your doctor will discuss your symptoms and goals for treatment to help determine the best course of action.
How Do I Know if I Need Hormone Therapy?
If you’re experiencing the following symptoms, it might be time to consider hormone therapy:
- Mood swings, including anxiety and depression
- Weight gain
- Hot flashes or night sweats
- Headaches and fatigue
- Low libido
- Vaginal dryness
- Fibrocystic breasts
- Sexual dysfunction
- Bone loss, otherwise known as osteoporosis
Hormonal Imbalance Treatments
At Mile High OB/GYN, we treat hormone imbalances with bioidentical hormone replacement therapy, or BHRT. BHRT is a method of introducing biologically identical, naturally derived hormones back into the body. This personalized form of treatment can help you restore your estrogen, progesterone, testosterone and DHEA levels, which can improve your quality of life.
Your doctor will ask about your symptoms during your first consultation. You’ll also discuss your medical history, including current lifestyle factors. Your doctor will likely request lab work as well. Testing bodily fluids like blood and urine can provide an accurate picture of your natural hormone levels. From there, you and your doctor can create a personalized treatment plan that targets your specific imbalance.
