Can Bioidentical Hormone Therapy Treat Menopause Symptoms?
As we age, we might start to notice things like weight gain, fatigue, lack of energy, moodiness, and more. These are often signs of declining hormones, a natural process as we age. For women, this likely also includes signs of the beginning stages of menopause. While normal, many wonder how they can slow down this process, particularly women who are experiencing the hot flashes, brain fog, and more known to come along with menopause.
Board-certified physician Dr. Christy Kirkendol Watson offers her patients a way to treat these hormonal symptoms by bringing their hormonal imbalances back into balance at Body Bar MD with bioidentical hormone replacement therapy. Located in Carmel and Terre Haute, IN, Dr. Christy and her team are here to help Indiana men and women feel like themselves once again.
What is Hormone Replacement Therapy?
As men and women age, hormones start to decline. Once faced with an overload of hormones, the changes that come with this decline can be unwelcome and somewhat annoying. While some people can notice hormonal imbalances by the time they hit 30, others begin to notice them around 40 and over and consider this a tell-tale sign of aging.
Dr. Christy, however, offers bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) for those who would like to fight these signs of aging. Utilizing BioTE pellet therapy, we can create a greater hormonal balance for both men and women. This safe and effective plant-based pellet contains the specific hormones each patient needs and is placed under the skin for a slow release of the hormones. The treatment is quick and takes place right inside of our Body Bar MD office. These hormone pellets are about the size of a grain of rice and contain enough hormones to last 3 – 6 months.
How long does it take to see results?
BHRT is a great choice for many men and women because it provides a consistent delivery of hormones, which will help our patients shake their hormone-related issues. Results vary from person to person since this is very much a personalized approach to health and wellness, but many of our patients begin to notice results within about four weeks. Dr. Christy will discuss expectations and follow-up visits with each patient to ensure their expectations are realistic and being met.
