With everything happening in our world today, are you finding yourself feeling tired or irritable? Is your quality of sleep suffering? These are typical signs of stress, but did you know that they are also common symptoms of a hormonal imbalance? There’s no need to worry, because there’s plenty of time and several effective tools to help you feel better. We simply want you to be aware of the symptoms so you can get the help you need when it’s time. Here are the answers to some of your most common questions about bio-identical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT).
What are the signs of hormonal imbalance?
Everyone undergoes hormonal fluctuations as they age. When hormone levels become low or imbalanced, it may result in a number of troubling symptoms, including:
● Low sex drive
● Erectile dysfunction (men)
● Weight gain
● Poor sleep
● Low energy, or feeling you are past your peak
● Vaginal dryness (women)
● Brain fog
● Hot flashes
● Night sweats
● Headaches/ migraines
What should I do if I’m suffering from any of these symptoms?
Your first step is calling us at 303.327.7300 to schedule a consultation. During this time of social distancing we are offering virtual or phone consultations. We’ll carefully review your symptoms and draw your blood for testing so we can determine if your hormone levels are, in fact, imbalanced or low.
What does BHRT treatment look like?
If a hormonal imbalance is detected, we will help you devise a personalized BHRT regimen that may include pellets, creams, or troches. BHRT Pellets are smaller than a grain of rice, and are all-natural and fully dissolvable. We gently insert them just under the skin as an outpatient procedure. The process is efficient and well-tolerated.
How long does it take to see improvement?
You may notice improvement within the first month following your pellet insertion. Many patients report improvements sooner than that. No matter what, we will continue to closely monitor your progress and will retest your blood, adjusting your dosage if necessary, to help you feel your best.
