Do you feel stressed out and have trouble sleeping? Are you moody and irritable? If so, menopause may be to blame. Dr. Nina Desai and Dr. Dhara Patel can create personalized treatment plans that minimize your discomfort and improve your quality of life. Learn how bioidentical hormones work during a menopause assessment in Sugar Land, TX.

What happens during menopause?

Many women go through menopause after the age of 45. The body produces less estrogen and progesterone, which are hormones that help regulate the menstrual cycle. Menopause is officially declared after a woman hasn't had a period for 12 consecutive months.

Unfortunately, menopause can cause a wide range of unpleasant symptoms, including hot flashes, night sweats, mood swings, and vaginal dryness that interferes with sexual intercourse. Many women also find that they gain weight or have difficulty sleeping. Patients can seek relief from these symptoms with bioidentical hormones.

How do bioidentical hormones work?

Bioidentical hormones are made from plant-based materials and are identical in chemical structure to the hormones produced by your body. They can be administered as topical creams, oral capsules, and self-administered injections. Renew Wellness Center also offers pellets compressed to the size of a rice grain. These pellets are placed just beneath the skin in a quick and simple procedure. All of these innovative options are available to our patients in Sugar Land, TX.

When should I start hormone replacement therapy?

Some women turn to prescription medications to relieve menopause symptoms, but drugs do not address the root of the problem. In addition, they may come with side effects that can be quite serious.

Instead, bioidentical hormones are a natural way to restore balance to your body and can be started at any time. However, it's important to work with an experienced medical team before moving forward. Dr. Desai and Dr. Patel can create a treatment plan that takes into account your unique health history and symptoms. We can help you get relief from menopause and feel like yourself again.

What results should I expect from bioidentical hormones?

Bioidentical hormones can greatly improve your quality of life by relieving many different kinds of menopause symptoms at once. You may have more energy and experience better sleep during hormone replacement therapy. Others have a considerable boost in their libido and sex drive. In addition, some studies show that this treatment can help protect against serious conditions, like osteoporosis and heart disease. Renew Wellness Center is proud to offer this cutting-edge therapy so patients can feel their best during this important time in life.
