Do you suffer from a hormone imbalance?
Symptoms of hormone imbalances can occur at anytime, not only menopause, and can significantly impact every aspect of a woman’s life. Common symptoms include:
- Hot flashes or night sweats, also called Vasomotor symptoms.
- Changes in periods – often the first sign of perimenopause, periods may be irregular, heavy, more painful, or PMS symptoms may be severe. Abnormal or missed periods may also be a sign of PCOS or other hormonal problems.
- Decreased libido – low sex drive can occur at any age but 1 in 3 menopausal women experience decreased libido.
- Vaginal dryness.
- Hair loss/change in texture.
- Problems sleeping – more than half of perimenopausal women have trouble sleeping. Poor sleep contributes to so many other problems.
- Brain fog or difficulty concentrating.
- Anxiety or depression.
- Weight gain – especially around the abdomen or mid-section.
- Recurrent urinary tract infections – hormone changes at menopause can lead to thinning of vaginal tissue and changes in the body’s normal balance of bacteria.
- Breast tenderness.
- Hirsutism – hair growth in male-like pattern – for example – chin, mustache
- Chronic acne

Is hormone therapy safe?
Biodientical hormones are safe and effective when used appropriately. Bioidentical means that they are chemically identical to the hormones naturally produced by your body. While not everyone can or should take hormone therapy, research has proven it to be the most effective treatment for moderate to severe menopausal symptoms. Individual medical history and risk factors as well as a thorough health history needs to be discussed to determine the best treatment option for each woman as an individual.
Hormone therapy is an acceptable option for women up to age 59 within 10 years of menopause who are bothered by moderate to severe menopausal symptoms. Individualization is the key to the decision to use hormone therapy. Medical organizations devoted to the care of menopausal women agree that there is no question that hormone therapy has an important role in managing symptoms for healthy women during the menopause transition and in early menopause.
