Bioidentical Hormone Programs For Women
Often during a woman’s reproductive years she can experience intense PMS symptoms. If she has imbalances in progesterone, symptoms that include bloating, water retention, food cravings, heavy menstrual periods, and severe mood swings may occur, and if estrogen is imbalanced, a woman may have more breast pain, premenstrual acne, and increased anxiety. Other symptoms can include migraines, headaches, and painful cramping. A bioidentical hormone replacement program can reduce these issues and improve reproductive health in Colorado Springs and El Paso County, Colorado.
An issue that occurs as women begin to age is Perimenopause, which can last from 4-6 years and begins when the ovaries stop making adequate amounts of estrogen and progesterone. Perimenopause is the phase before menopause when a woman’s body is preparing to put an end to the reproductive years. Symptoms may include irregular periods, headaches, insomnia, low libido, anxiety, dysmenorrhea, amenorrhea, acne, depression, and dull hair and nails. A qualified Colorado Springs Bioidentical Hormones Doctor can help women to reduce symptoms and improve hormone balance.
Menopause begins after a woman has not had a menstrual period for 12 consecutive months, and the ovaries are producing less estrogen and progesterone. For some women, menopause can be very mild or severe, depending on the state of the adrenal glands. These hormonal fluctuations can create symptoms of weight gain, hot flashes, vaginal dryness, low libido, thinning skin, brittle bones, osteoporosis, night sweats, heart palpitations, anxiety, and insomnia. Colorado Springs Bioidentical Hormones Doctor, Steven Foley, M.D. has worked with many menopausal women and implemented bioidentical hormone programs that have reduced or eliminated symptoms.
Bioidentical Hormone Programs For Men
Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy can also benefit men. Steven Foley, M.D. has used bioidentical hormones to help men that are going through andropause, which is the time in a man’s life when his testosterone levels begin to decline. In men, testosterone levels begin to decline as early as the 30’s, and the most common time men experience andropause is in the mid to late 40’s or early 50’s. Symptoms of low testosterone can include erectile dysfunction, hair loss on the head, groin, and under the arms, muscle atrophy, decreased sexual performance, anxiety, low libido, insomnia, outbursts of anger, heart palpitations, headaches, high blood pressure, depression, fatigue, mood swings, and weight gain around the middle. A Colorado Springs Bioidentical Hormones Doctor, Steven Foley, M.D. bioidentical hormone replacement therapy program can help men to overcome these symptoms and improve their overall health.
