Hormone replacement therapy for women is common. Some women use it to get rid of minor conditions while others use it to treat serious conditions, such as menopause.
For acute hormone related problems, professionals prefer to use medicines, supplements, lotions, and skin implants to increase the hormone levels in the body.
But when these drugs and creams do not work, the doctors have no choice but to introduce the option of hormone replacement.
Dr. Scheinberg measures blood levels for each patient to help him individualize the amount of the hormone replacement required.
Hormone Replacement to Treat Menopause
As women age, their hormones change. These hormone changes can negatively affect the overall performance of their bodies.
Numerous conditions, such as the weakening of bones and modifications in the skin, occur with continued aging.
Menopause causes a lot of uncomfortable symptoms and is responsible for some deterioration in the body. For women who lead an active life, such symptoms can be distressing.
The best way to get rid of the distress created by menopause is with hormone therapy.
Doctors may prescribe hormone therapy for women with menopause.
Some women themselves opt for hormone therapy to ease themselves of the discomforts and distresses of menopause which might include obesity, lack of sleep, loss of hair, vaginal infections and also emotional changes.
Hormone therapy is considered an effective way to get rid of the problems and ease the discomforts of menopause.
As hormones are an essential part of the body and the body requires a certain amount, the loss of them could lead to severe drawbacks, and an imbalance in hormone levels could disrupt one’s life.
Another menopause symptom is depression, which many believe to be due to some mental stress or strain but is rather a result of a hormonal imbalance at this age.
Serotonin, low levels of which have been linked to depression, is not produced in ample amount when there is estrogen deficiency.
Hence, women with an estrogen-deficient get moody and depressed easily.
Hormone replacement therapy for women increases estrogen levels, boosting serotonin and relieving depression.
