Bio-identical hormone therapy can be quite advantageous. This therapy is most often used in women during menopause, but is also used in many women and men over the age of 35 to treat uncomfortable symptoms associated with stress and aging. It uses hormones that are identical to your natural hormones to replace ones that are low in your body. Here are some of the top reasons why you should consider getting bio-identical hormone therapy at our office in Washington, DC.
Reduce Uncomfortable Symptoms of Menopause
This is probably the most common reason why natural hormones are prescribed. The symptoms of menopause are often quite irritating, and many can significantly affect a variety of areas of your life, including personal relationships and your job.
If you are in peri-menopause or menopause, you may be experiencing hot flashes during the day or may wake up sweaty in the middle of the night. You may struggle with insomnia, may feel drowsy during the day and may feel moody. You may even have noticed that you have begun putting on weight despite continuing your usual healthy diet. Your thinking may be foggy, and you may struggle to remember little things. Hormone therapy in Washington, DC can limit these symptoms by replacing hormones that have naturally decreased during menopause.
Get Stronger Bones
When you enter menopause, your lowered levels of estrogen and progesterone have a negative impact on your bones. Your bones begin losing mass, and your risk of osteoporosis rises significantly. Bio-identical hormone therapy can keep your bones strong and limit your risk for broken bones as you age.
Improve Your Sex Drive
Another normal part of aging for many women and men is a lowered sex drive. This may be due to a low libido. Bio-identical hormone therapy can improve your sex drive, increase your desire for intimacy and make sexual intercourse more enjoyable.
Feel Better About Yourself
Simply put, when you do not feel like yourself, your quality of life can significantly decrease. When you sleep poorly and feel moody and irritable, your relationships suffer and you may even feel anxious or depressed.
