Bioidentical Hormones

Whether you are struggling with premenopausal symptoms, sexual dysfunction, or low libido, there is one common cause: your hormones are out of whack. At Let’s Just Imagine MD we offer Bioidentical Hormone Therapy to help ease your discomfort. Bioidentical Hormones are defined as man-made hormones that are very similar to those produced by the human body. Common hormones that are matched are estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone. These are then used as a treatment for men and women whose own hormones are low or out of balance. If you have noticed any sexual dysfunction symptoms or other signs of irregularity, this treatment may be right for you.

What Do Bioidentical Hormones Treat?

When your hormones are all over the place, it can make you feel like you don’t have control over your own body. Talking with your doctor is the best way for you to gain more information about what may be causing your discomfort. As both men and women age, the levels of key hormones in the body go down. These include estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone. This can lead to symptoms of low sex drive or premenopausal discomfort. Using Bioidentical Hormones can help ease what you are feeling and restore your natural balance back into your body. The following symptoms can be treated with hormone therapy:

What Are the Symptoms of Hormone Irregularity?

Symptoms of hormone imbalances vary from person to person and can depend on which hormones are involved as well as whether your levels are too high or too low. Perimenopause, for example, begins when a woman’s levels of estrogen and progesterone fall in her mid to late 40s. Perimenopause causes symptoms such as mood swings, acne, irregular periods, low libido, painful sex due to vaginal atrophy, and hot flashes. A common hormone imbalance in men is low testosterone, which can cause loss of muscle mass, poor energy, and sexual health problems. Five of the most common signs of a hormone imbalance are:

  • Irregular cycles & PMS
  • Infertility
  • Bloating & digestive issues
  • Acne
  • Hot flashes, night sweats, and difficulty sleeping

How Does Bioidentical Hormone Therapy Work?

Bioidentical hormones are hormones that are made in a laboratory and mimic the hormones your body produces naturally. As a result, the body should not be able to tell the difference between the hormones it produces and the bioidentical ones. These hormones are made from a variety of sources that span plant and animal products. At Let’s Just Imagine MD we offer this treatment to help you regain your hormonal balance and alleviate symptoms you may be experiencing from hot flashes to low libido. There are many ways to get bioidentical hormones. These include pills, patches, creams, gels, shots, and implanted pellets. When you arrive for your consultation, we can discuss which delivery method is best suited for your needs.
