Menopause is a blissful transition in a woman’s life. It can be difficult to manage this new phase with grace when experiencing a lack of sleep, hot flashes, and other symptoms that disrupt your daily life. If you’re in search of effective ways to address these symptoms, gynecology services like low-dose hormone replacement therapy and BioTE hormone therapy may help.

Low-Dose Hormone Replacement Therapy

During this beautiful transition in your life as a woman, changes in your body’s estrogen levels will occur. Low-dose hormone replacement therapy is an excellent way to manage these changes. As your estrogen levels decline, this therapy can manage uncomfortable symptoms, such as hot flashes and vaginal dryness.

The Women’s Health Initiative results showed that the lowest hormone dose should be used to avoid unnecessary health risks. Studies have reported that low-dose HRT can effectively address uncomfortable menopausal symptoms in the same way that higher doses of hormones can.

With this treatment option, you can find relief from menopause symptoms like itchy skin, joint pain, headaches, irritability, low sex drive, and dizziness. Studies have shown that short-term hormone replacement therapy, such as estrogen-based HRT, lessens hot flashes by up to 90%.

Bioidentical Hormones (BioTE)

BioTE bioidentical hormones are developed to mimic your body’s natural hormones. They are often used by people with unbalanced hormones or low estrogen levels, such as women experiencing their natural transition to their menopausal stage.

This therapy uses bioidentical hormones developed from plants. With BioTE, pellets implanted beneath the skin will steadily and continually replace lost hormones. Once the hormone levels have been optimized, patients see improvements in their menopause symptoms.

Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy can help your body deal with symptoms such as weight gain, hot flashes, mood swings, vaginal dryness, memory loss, and night sweats. It can also address memory loss, low energy levels, reduced interest in sex, and difficulty sleeping. Additionally, it may lower your risk of health issues like cataracts, tooth loss, and diabetes.

Determining the Right Dose

At Ayim Aesthetic, Dr. Ayim will monitor you closely when you start hormone treatment. Your urine, blood, or saliva may be tested to check your hormone levels and adjust your dose depending on your hormone needs over time.

The time it takes for hormonal therapy to work varies depending on numerous factors. You may see the symptoms improve within a few weeks, or you may notice the results within three months of starting hormone therapy.
