Bioidentical Hormone Treatments

//Bioidentical Hormone Treatments

Millions of women in the United States are affected by hormone imbalances. If you have hormones that are out of balance you could be suffering from a range of problems with menopause, thyroid dysfunction, and hypoactive sexual desire disorder (HSDD). At Wisconsin Vein Center & MediSpa our team member, Dr. Joi Davis, provides medical care for women suffering from hormone imbalance. She helps treat this with Bioidentical Hormone Therapy.

What Are Bioidentical Hormones?

For bioidentical hormone therapy, we use hormones that are biologically identical to the natural hormones that your body makes. Since the chemical structures of the hormones being used are identical to natural ones, so the body recognizes these as familiar and reacts to them in natural ways. These man-made hormones are derived from plant estrogens. The most commonly replicated hormones used in the treatment are estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone. The bioidentical hormones can come in various forms such as:

  • Pills
  • Patches
  • Creams
  • Gels
  • Injections

Depending on the specific needs of the individual, the dosage of the hormones will vary.

How Do Bioidentical Hormones Work?

By talking to Dr. Davis at Wisconsin Vein Center & MediSpa she can help choose the right dosage and hormone form for you and your lifestyle. Since the hormones have identical structures to natural hormones, the body recognizes them. The body will send out messengers that tell other parts how and when to work, the hormones control all tasks in the body. So, when you start taking these hormones you are making up the imbalance and helping your body to work correctly.

Symptoms of Hormonal Imbalance in Women

For women who are experiencing hormone imbalance, there are many symptoms that could happen because of this, such as:

  • Weight gain
  • Hot flashes
  • Mood swings
  • Depression
  • Night Sweats
  • Insomnia
  • Low libido
  • Memory loss
  • Fatigue
  • Fibroids
  • Premenstrual symptoms
  • Endometriosis
  • Vaginal dryness

What Can Bioidentical Hormones Help?

The main issues that women face when having imbalanced hormones are menopause, thyroid disorders, and low sexual desire. When going through menopause, this affects the hormones of middle-aged women. Menopause affects your body in numerous ways, to help alleviate some of the side effects of menopause, more and more women are turning to bioidentical hormone therapy.

Women are far more likely to develop thyroid disorders than men. The thyroid impacts many daily functions of the body such as sleep cycles, appetite, metabolism, and more. If a thyroid disorder goes untreated it can put women at risk for many serious diseases. More women are now turning to bioidentical hormone therapy to help their thyroid disorder. Talk to Dr. Davis about this now.

Hormonal imbalances can play a role in sexual desire. Many women may experience vaginal dryness or pain during sex, but a loss of wanting to have sex also occurs. This is known as Hypoactive Sexual Desire Disorder. Imbalanced hormones can lead to this so bioidentical hormone therapy has been shown to be an effective treatment.

Who is a Candidate?

Women suffering from hormone imbalance issues can be good candidates for bioidentical hormone therapy. Dr. Davis will consult with you and learn about your symptoms, concerns, lifestyle, and desires so that she can choose the right dosage and treatment option for you.
