What Is Menopause?
Women’s ovaries will eventually stop producing estrogen as they age, and this stage in a woman’s life is called menopause. Estrogen regulates the menstrual cycle, as well as affects women’s urinary tract, heart, blood vessels, bones, breasts, skin, hair, mucous membranes, pelvic muscles, and even emotional state. While certain women only undergo basic discomfort during menopause, many others experience a variety of negative symptoms. The BioTE method of hormone replacement therapy for women helps address the root of these symptoms and may provide strong, more consistent relief.
What Are the Signs of Menopause?
The onset of menopause has many associated symptoms. Some sufferers of menopause report such symptoms as reduction of menstrual cycle, hot flashes or flushes, trouble sleeping, discomfort with intercourse, and incontinence. BioTE® Medical’s method of hormone replacement therapy may provide relief of these symptoms.
What Are the Stages of Menopause?
The three stages of menopause are perimenopause, menopause, and postmenopause. Perimenopause is the beginning stage of menopause, starting as early as a woman’s 30s. Menopause is the point at which a woman’s periods have stopped, and postmenopause is considered the years after this.
What Is Perimenopause?
Perimenopause refers to the first stage of menopause. The symptoms of this include changes in menstrual cycle, an increase in urinary tract infections (UTIs), difficulty with incontinence, low mood or mood swings, and decreased libido. While undergoing perimenopause, women can also potentially experience their hair becoming brittle, skin thinning, and a weakening of bone density. Perimenopause therapy has helped many women treat these symptoms. If patients are searching for effective perimenopause support, consider the BioTE method of bioidentical hormone replacement therapy.
What Are the Perimenopause Relief Options?
One may reduce the severity of their perimenopause symptoms by exercising daily, ensuring they receive proper nutrition, and getting as much rest as possible and improving their bedtime routine. If that isn’t enough, BioTE’s approach to perimenopause therapy for women may provide relief for these symptoms.
What Is BHRT?
The BioTE method of bioidentical hormone replacement therapy, or BHRT, uses pellets, the preferred method of delivery for these types of hormones. Roughly the size of a single grain of rice, it is administered subcutaneously under the skin. Women whose perimenopause symptoms are not being properly alleviated with self-directed treatment may benefit from the BioTE method, in which hormone pellets release hormones throughout the body.
