What are the Indications for Starting Hormone Replacement Therapy in a Menopausal Woman?
You have finally reached menopause. Your first thought is “Yeah! No more periods!”, and then the symptoms of menopause hit. You begin experiencing one or more of the following:
- Hot flashes
- Night sweats
- Trouble sleeping
- Lack of sex drive
- Lack of energy
- Vaginal dryness
- Foggy thinking
- Mood swings
- Weight gain
These symptoms, along with lab work showing that your hormone levels are low, indicate that you are a candidate for starting Hormone Replacement Therapy.
Menopause does not have to be a miserable time in your life. You could get back the vitality that you had in your 20s and 30s with Hormone Replacement Therapy.
At Hormones by Design, we recommend and utilize Bio-identical Hormone Replacement (BHRT). BHRT uses hormones that are the exact same molecular structure as the hormones that your own body produced when you were younger. Most of our patients opt for our unique monthly hormone injections. This allows for a customized dose to address lab values and symptoms that the patient is experiencing.
Hormones by Design treats women experiencing the symptoms of menopause and even perimenopause (that comes before menopausal age). We have locations in San Antonio, Boerne, and Waco, Texas. Visit our website at www.hormonesbydesign.com.
