Women experience many pains and discomforts that men simply do not--especially later in life, in menopause or afterward. But they don't have to suffer. There are many treatments available. Of them, hormone therapy is considered to be one of the most effective. At Balance Hormone Center in Gilbert & Peoria, Arizona, we help women through placement of bioidentical hormone pellets just below the skin.
Why are bioidentical hormones a good choice? Bioidentical hormones have the same chemical and molecular structure as chemicals that are produced by your own body. That's why they are easier for your body to leverage them in the treatment of symptoms such as:
- Fatigue/decreased energy
- Decreased libido/sex drive
- Decreased muscle mass
- Concentration and memory problems
- Anxiety and depression
- Osteoporosis, heart attack and diabetes
- Menopause symptoms (hot flashes, night sweats, vaginal dryness)
Bioidentical Hormone Pellets: How Do They Work?
Bioidentical hormones come in the form of a small pellet that is inserted under your skin by a doctor. To do this, doctors make a very small incision, usually in an out-of-the-way place such as the top of the buttocks. The procedure is not painful. We use numbing agents and extensive skills, so it feels kind of like getting a shot.
Afterward, a constant flow of hormones--usually estrogen--is delivered directly to the bloodstream. Women sometimes report that they can immediately feel the effects. They begin feeling better and start getting their lives back on track.
The procedure generally needs to be repeated every three to six months, depending on a doctor's recommendation. Each case is different, and it is best to talk with your doctor about your own situation and needs.
What Can You Expect After Bioidentical Hormone Treatment?
After treatment, you can expect to begin feeling better. One of the first signs that the treatment is working is an increased mood. After hormone treatment, many women experience increased emotional stability. They feel decreased anxiety, sleep better, and are less sad, angry or depressed.
Women see other improvements as well. You may feel better all over, experiencing fewer aches and pains, increased energy and increased interest in life.
