Post-Menopause & Hormone Pellet Therapy for Women
Menopause is the period of life for a woman when her ovaries cease estrogen production. During this process, hormonal imbalance is occurring, beginning in the earliest stages of menopause. Learn the symptoms of postmenopause below and how BioTE® Medical's postmenopausal hormone therapy may be able to help!
What Is Postmenopause?
Many different things can occur during the stage of a woman's life where she is considered postmenopausal. Many women are relieved by the end of their hot flashes, and the lessened severity of their mood swings during this time. However, a number of health issues can arise with lowered estrogen levels. Heart disease and osteoporosis are among the conditions that can come along during postmenopause. After the 12th month where a woman does not have a period, she is considered to be postmenopausal.
What Are the Symptoms of Menopause and Postmenopause?
The only true sign that a woman is in postmenopause is when she does not have a period in 12 months. With age comes decreased fertility, but women can potentially get pregnant at any time before then. During the menopausal period, women may experience changes in sex drive, headaches, difficulty concentrating, hair loss, weight gain, racing heart, a worsening of PMS, difficulty sleeping and numerous changes emotionally, both during and before menopause.
To say the least, women are relieved to move on from such issues. As mentioned, lack of a menstrual cycle for 12 months, aside from that potential side effects from medication, a woman is then considered postmenopausal. You can also have a physician administer a blood test to confirm. While normal bodily functions will be changing for a woman and many symptoms caused by PMS will cease, this extreme change can leave your hormones unbalanced thus not allowing you to be completely comfortable in your postmenopausal state.
