Hormonal Imbalance Symptoms in Women in Post Menopause
Menopause is the point of a woman’s life where her ovaries cease estrogen production. During this process, hormonal imbalance is occurring, beginning in the earliest stages of menopause. Learn about the postmenopause symptoms in women below and how BioTE® Medical may be able to help relieve your postmenopause symptoms.
What is Menopause?
At some point in a woman’s life, usually between the ages of 45 and 55, her ovaries will cease estrogen production. This process is called menopause. During this time, her menstrual cycle will stop, and other changes can occur, both physically and emotionally. This change also means a woman can no longer bear children. Menopause can cause a variety of unpleasant symptoms, so if you’re experiencing any of these symptoms, reach out to your nearest Certified BioTE Provider.
What are the Stages of Menopause?
There are three stages of menopause and the earliest indications that menopause is coming begin with perimenopause.
- Perimenopause can occur as early as 10 years before the ending of the menstrual cycle in menopause.
- The cessation of the menstrual cycle occurs during the height of menopause.
- Then, the final stage of menopause is called postmenopause.
Postmenopause can be characterized as the final phase of a woman’s life after her reproductive years have ceased. Postmenopause symptoms start to develop during this time.
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, many health issues can arise with lowered estrogen levels. Heart disease and osteoporosis are among the postmenopause symptoms in women that can come along. After the 12th consecutive month where a woman does not have a period, she is considered to be postmenopausal.
What Are the Postmenopause Symptoms?
The only true postmenopause indicator or symptom in women is going a full year without a menstrual cycle. Other postmenopause symptoms include 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 prior to menopause.

What is BHRT?
Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy, or BHRT, is a method of replacing hormones that the body loses during menopause, and at other times. While typical hormone replacement therapy utilizes synthetic hormones that are synthetically conjugated, our bioidentical hormones more closely duplicate the molecular structure of your own hormones. This will restore the hormone balance to the body and relieve postmenopause symptoms in women. BioTE Medical subcutaneously inserts BHRT in pellets form in a quick, generally painless insertion.
