Estrogen, Progesterone, Testosterone
Women experiencing menopause often feel “out of sync”. They can experience hot flashes, weight gain, loss of libido, insomnia, and emotional changes. This is due to declining hormone levels as the ovaries start to decrease the production of estrogen, testosterone, and progesterone. While some of the effects of this declining hormonal levels are considered temporary with many women thinking these symptoms can be “toughed out”, the reality is that these changes can affect your vitality, health, and even your longevity.
EFFECTS OF DECLINING HORMONES
During menopause, other hormones also decline, including human growth hormone and thyroid hormone. As hormonal levels decrease, metabolism and growth changes occur, affecting the following:
– GI tract
– Blood vessels
– Urinary tract
– Skin, brain, energy levels
– Cardiovascular system
Research has shown that disorders affecting women, including menopause, migraines, PMS, and depression can be treated with hormone replacement therapy. This treatment can be using bio-identical estrogen, testosterone, and progesterone can give women who are approaching or experiencing menopause higher energy levels and heightened sexual desire.
Estrogen and Progesterone
At New Jersey Anti-Aging Clinic, we can identify deficient estrogen levels and if necessary, prescribe the proper bio-identical hormones. Proper levels of estrogen can help women feel energetic, have a sharper memory, and minds that are more responsive. They can also have stronger bones, healthier hearts, and glowing skin.
Many women say that they have felt their best during pregnancy. The reasons for this is that hormone levels are at their highest during pregnancy. The strength of these hormones provides women with energy, stamina, and a body that is strong enough to support a baby. However, after childbirth, some women can experience postpartum depression due to the decrease in hormones.
Estrogen hormone replacement therapy can help women relieve mood swings, infertility, premenstrual syndrome, fibrocystic breasts, endometriosis, weight gain, cellulite, vaginal dryness, low libido, frequent bladder infection, osteoporosis, and heart disease.
Progesterone helps balance the effects of estrogen and can relieve mood swings, prevent weight gain, restore libido and more.
