The menopause is simply the name given to the transition that takes place in women between the ages of 40 and 50, marking the cessation of their reproductive period. It’s when your periods stop and your hormones can go haywire.
Both your mental and physical state can be affected negatively by the changes that take place. As the female reproductive system gradually shuts down, the ovaries cease producing certain hormones that are technically required for reproduction purposes.
Menopause hormones include oestrogen, progesterone and testosterone. Testosterone controls your energy, motivation levels and libido. Progesterone controls your mood, your mental state and how well you sleep. Oestrogen controls your hair and skin, as well as help prevent you from getting Alzheimer’s, osteoporosis and heart disease. If you suffer from common menopause side-effects such as hot flushes, vaginal dryness or having to urinate a lot, oestrogen will help.
We don’t expect you to know which hormones you’re deficient in and how to resolve this issue. Our doctor led team will be able to ascertain this information through questioning and blood tests.
Menopause hormone therapy is applied to restore your hormone levels and balance your endocrine system. Once you receive your hormone supplements, you should find symptoms of the menopause are alleviated. Skin problems should clear up, your mood should be more positive and your quality of sleep should be improved. Your libido, energy levels and motivation should also be returned to their former levels.
