Menopause treatment Weatherford , TX - Vital Hormone Clinic

Overview of Menopause

Menopause is a natural stage of life when a woman's menstrual cycles stop permanently and she can no longer become pregnant. The years leading up to menopause are called perimenopause. During this transition time, hormone levels become erratic and start to decline, causing various symptoms.

Getting an accurate menopause diagnosis and starting treatment can provide tremendous relief from disruptive signs and help women stay energized and healthy. Vital Hormone Clinic provides individualized care to help patients navigate menopause confidently.

What Happens During Menopause

The key change associated with menopause is plummeting estrogen levels. Estrogen is essential for reproductive health, but it also impacts:

As the body makes less estrogen, changes and symptoms may develop like:

Diagnosing Menopause

Getting an accurate menopause diagnosis is important for determining the best treatment options. Doctors at Vital Hormone Clinic will complete testing of hormone levels through blood, urine, or saliva samples. This helps identify deficits for customized therapy.

The average age for menopause is 51, but it may start earlier or later. Symptoms can develop gradually or suddenly. Genetics, autoimmune disorders, cancer treatment, and surgery can also trigger menopause. Whenever bothersome symptoms emerge, it is wise to consult a menopause specialist.

Menopausal Symptom Management

Hormone therapy and other treatments can provide relief from discomforts of menopause. The experts at Vital Hormone Clinic create customized plans to match each woman's needs.

Managing Hot Flashes

Hot flashes are often one of the most troublesome menopausal symptoms. About 75% of women have them during perimenopause and postmenopause. They are characterized by intense heat in the upper body, flushed skin, sweating, chills, and sometimes a rapid heart rate.

Hormone therapy with bioidentical estrogen is highly effective for reducing hot flash frequency by up to 90%. Lifestyle adjustments may also help:

Vaginal Health and Sexual Comfort

With less estrogen, the vaginal tissues can lose tone, flexibility, and lubrication. This atrophy can result in:

Local low-dose estrogen therapy can safely and effectively treat vaginal atrophy. This is available as a cream, tablet insert, or ring placed inside the vagina to release estrogen directly to vaginal tissues. Using lubricants or moisturizers can also increase comfort.

Addressing sexual health concerns is key for emotional well-being and preserving intimacy with partners. The supportive providers at Vital Hormone Clinic provide complete and compassionate care in this delicate area.

Bone Loss Prevention

Estrogen helps build bone mass and strength until midlife. In the 3-5 years around menopause, bone loss accelerates due to estrogen deficiency, putting women at greater risk for osteoporosis and fractures.

Getting enough calcium, vitamin D, magnesium and doing weight-bearing exercise are vital. However, the most effective treatment is hormone therapy with systemic estrogen to prevent excessive bone loss. This helps substantially lower fracture risk.

Vital Hormone Clinic providers stay up-to-date on all the latest osteoporosis medications as well to protect bone health.

Mood Improvement and Brain Support

Up to 23% of menopausal women experience depression due to hormone fluctuations and stress. Estrogen modulates neurotransmitters like serotonin related to mood. Hot flashes and sleep disruption also contribute to anxiety, irritability and trouble focusing.

Restarting estrogen therapy can boost mood, energy, memory and clarity within a few weeks to months. Our holistic therapies also promote mental sharpness and emotional health during this transition.

Weight Management

Numerous factors during perimenopause and menopause can contribute to weight gain:

Rebalancing hormones and adopting healthy lifestyle habits are key to maintaining a healthy weight or losing excess pounds. Customized nutrition and exercise plans can optimize results.
