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:
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.
