Loss of estrogen at menopause is known for causing hot flashes, night sweats, and mood swings. Nearly half of all women also experience vaginal atrophy, which occurs when lack of estrogen affects tissues inside your vagina, causing those tissues to become thin, dry, and less elastic. Women who develop vaginal atrophy experience symptoms such as:
Menopause has a broad impact throughout your body because many cells and tissues depend on estrogen to stay healthy and function properly. For example, estrogen regulates bone metabolism and promotes collagen production in your skin, so a decline in estrogen increases your risk of osteoporosis and accelerates the effect of aging on skin.
Men can develop low testosterone from several causes. As men get older, their levels of testosterone naturally decline. Hypogonadism is also caused by problems in the hypothalamus, pituitary gland, or testicles. A drop in testosterone causes symptoms such as:
Bioidentical hormones have the same chemical structure as the hormones naturally produced in your body, so they have an identical effect. The hormones may be synthetically manufactured or produced from natural substances, but as long as they’re “bioidentical” they produce the same results.
Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy restores deficient hormones to their normal levels, which treats health issues caused by menopause, low testosterone, and other types of hormone deficiencies. When hormones are back to normal levels, symptoms caused by the deficiency are relieved and potential chronic health conditions are prevented.
Dr. Amin reviews your medical history and performs a physical exam to be sure bioidentical hormone replacement therapy is a good choice for you. Though it’s safe for most men and women, the doctor continues to monitor your hormone levels to be sure you receive the right dose in the proper form. Bioidentical hormones may be prescribed in capsules, pills, creams, skin patches, or pellets, which are injected under your skin.
