What to do when you’re concerned

Women experience hormonal cycles throughout most of their lives, with puberty, the childbearing years and menopause as the biggest landmarks. Specifically, the menstrual cycle is a solid indicator of hormonal synergy, and as periods begin to fizzle away during perimenopause, women begin suffering from a host of unpleasant symptoms as they enter their 40s.

It’s good to know that some of these symptoms can be mitigated with some healthy lifestyle changes, like exercising moderately, limiting sugar and learning how to manage stress. Bring up any concerns with your doctor, even if they are uncomfortable. Speaking with your doctor about any other health conditions is crucial. Your physician can guide you best.

First, Your doctor will first take an inventory of your symptoms and concerns. Then, he or she will order blood tests to monitor your hormone levels. Your doctor will want to understand how your body is producing estrogen and progesterone, the two most important hormones in a woman’s body. Other essential hormones include testosterone, thyroid and insulin. With careful observation, your doctor will recommend a tailored treatment plan.

Often the best strategy to replenish the body with the proper hormone levels is to supplement with bio-identical hormones.
