Menopause treatment Colonia, NJ

Understanding Menopause

Menopause signals a natural transition in a woman's life, marking the end of her reproductive years. The average age for menopause is 51, but it can happen anywhere from 40-55 years old. As estrogen levels decline, women may experience uncomfortable symptoms like hot flashes, night sweats, vaginal dryness, mood changes, trouble sleeping, and more.

While menopause is natural, living with bothersome symptoms is not mandatory. At Hormone Solutions in Colonia, we provide customized menopause treatment to help women find relief. With timely diagnosis and treatment, our caring providers can reduce discomfort substantially so women can fully enjoy midlife.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I know if I'm in menopause?

You've officially entered menopause when you have no period for 12 consecutive months (no pregnancy). As you near menopause in your 40s, cycles often become irregular as ovulation stops. Hot flashes and sleep disruption often start perimenopause. Have your FSH blood level checked to identify hormone shifts.

What are bioidentical hormones?

Bioidentical hormones are synthesized from yams or soybeans but are molecularly identical to human hormones like estrogen, progesterone and testosterone. Since the structure precisely matches your own hormones, they are well recognized and utilized by the body without increased health risks.

Are bioidentical hormones safe?

Large studies find bioidentical hormones are safe for most healthy women under age 60, especially at lower doses. We carefully monitor your dose, symptoms and bloodwork every 3-6 months to minimize risks. Used short term, treatment is very well tolerated. Each woman tolerates hormones differently based on health history - a customized approach is best.

How can I boost my hormone levels naturally?

Healthy lifestyle habits help ease menopausal symptoms and sustain hormone balance naturally. We recommend: balanced nutrition, regular exercise, restorative sleep, stress management and loving connections. Small frequent meals with produce, fiber and plant fats supply key nutrients that nourish glands. Yoga, walking and lifting weights build strength and flexibility while lowering stress chemicals that disrupt endocrine function. Acupuncture, massage and meditation also heal.

How long is treatment needed?

Every woman is unique, but most patients use hormone replacement for 2-5 years until bothersome symptoms resolve. We re-evaluate your treatment plan twice yearly based on bloodwork and symptoms, adjusting as needed over time. Some women resume treatment later on if disruptive symptoms return - there are always options to find relief!
