Menopause Treatment

Bethlehem | Allentown

You might think of hormone replacement therapy only as a treatment for those going through menopause. Although menopause is one of the most well-known hormonal conditions, women can experience various disruptions or imbalances in hormone production  that can affect them physically and emotionally. When this happens, it’s important to consider hormone replacement therapy to restore balance.

Why

Hormone Therapy

Hormones of natural origin and identical bio-composition to those of the body are utilized to help patients maintain optimum hormonal levels.

The body’s hormones are crucial in maintaining health and wellness. However, as the years go by and as age takes its toll, the body’s capacity to create hormones may diminish and their levels may become imbalanced. This leads to a variety of unpleasant symptoms including mood changes, weight gain and other health complications.

To ensure patients stay healthy and happy as they age, Dr. Levinstein provides hormone replacement therapy to allow patients to reach their natural levels.

Menopause Issues

During menopause, the levels of estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone all decrease in a woman’s body. The drop in these hormones can cause many symptoms for the years before menopause (perimenopause), all the way through the cessation of menstruation.

What is MENOPAUSE

Menopause is the time in a woman’s life when her period stops. It usually occurs naturally, most often after age 45. Menopause happens because the woman’s ovaries stop producing the hormones estrogen and progesterone.

Estrogen

Estrogen is a hormone produced by the ovaries and adipose (fat) cells. It has a variety of functions, including:

Causes an increase in blood flow and oxygen metabolism
Increases neurotransmitters responsible for many of the emotions you experience
Improves mood by increasing serotonin levels

It is important to have a balanced level of neurotransmitters to maintain normal body functioning and stable mood. Estrogen replacement therapy helps maintain proper levels of these neurotransmitters, especially during times when estrogen naturally drops (e.g., during menopause).
