I Need Help Managing Menopause

The physical and emotional symptoms associated with menopause can make your days and nights a struggle. Hot flashes, vaginal dryness, mood swings, headaches, and other troublesome symptoms can negatively affect your life.  

Most of these unpleasant side effects associated with the transition into menopause are the result of changes and imbalances in your hormone levels. Home remedies may provide some help:

But for many women, these treatments don’t provide enough relief. 

At Genesis Weight Loss and Wellness Centers, our team, under the direction of Eugene Guerre Jr., MD, can help you manage the symptoms of menopause with safe and effective bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT). 

Why hormones cause menopause symptoms  

Hormones play a key role in regulating many important body functions. From digestion and metabolism to your libido and mood, the hormones your body releases keep your body working each and every day. Hormones even influence your bone density and growth.

As you approach menopause, the production of your reproductive hormones begins to decline and you enter a transitional stage called perimenopause. Like going through puberty, this transition is a natural part of life and doesn’t require treatment. 

But just as with puberty, the hormonal imbalances you experience during this transition can bring along a host of unpleasant symptoms, including: 

When these symptoms interfere with your quality of life, bioidentical hormone replacement therapy can help provide effective relief. 

How bioidentical hormone therapy can help

Women usually enter perimenopause in their 40s; the average age of menopause in the United States is 51. Symptoms associated with perimenopause can come and go until the transition into menopause (the absence of menstruation for 12 consecutive months) is complete. 

But these symptoms can last up to 11 years and make your life miserable.

Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy helps many women navigate the symptoms associated with this transitional time of life. 

With BHRT, we give you hormones identical to the ones your body produces naturally using hormones from natural plant compounds that are a match to the chemical structure of human hormones.

Research shows that with just the right dose of hormones, your shifting hormone levels can come into balance safely and effectively. 

At Genesis Weight Loss and Wellness Centers, we use your symptoms, a physical evaluation, and a blood or saliva hormone test to customize a treatment plan specifically for you.
