Menopause typically occurs in women during their late 40s or early 50s, although it can happen earlier or later. This transition often comes with various symptoms as hormone levels fluctuate and eventually decrease. The symptoms of menopause can vary from woman to woman, but some of the most common include:
By reintroducing hormones like estrogen during menopause, bioidentical hormone replacement therapy can significantly reduce or even eliminate these symptoms. BHRT begins with a comprehensive evaluation to determine your current hormone levels. This typically includes a physical examination, medical history review, and laboratory testing.
At The Center For Cosmetic & Reconstructive Gynecology, Dr. Scheinberg provides a comfortable and supportive environment for his patients. He takes the time to understand each patient’s individual needs so that he can provide personalized care and treatment for managing menopause symptoms. Once we have a clear picture of your hormonal health, Dr. Scheinberg will develop a customized treatment plan to help you feel like yourself again.
The most common sign of menopause is a change in your menstrual period. This could mean that it suddenly stops, becomes more frequent or irregular, or is heavier or lighter than is typical. You may notice other common symptoms of menopause, as well, including hot flashes, night sweats, and a decrease in libido.
There's no "right time" to start BHRT, and it's up to you and your doctor to determine if this treatment is the bests course of action. Women most often seek out BHRT because their symptoms have become disruptive. If your symptoms are affecting your quality of life or causing you distress, reach out to Dr. Scheinberg to see if BHRT is an appropriate treatment option for you.
The effects of BHRT can vary from person to person, but in general, most women report a noticeable improvement in their symptoms within the first month of treatment, if not soon after. Dr. Scheinberg will be able to provide you with more information about expected results after he evaluates your hormone levels and creates an appropriate treatment plan.
