Symptoms of Hormone Imbalance in Men and Women
- Menopause and Perimenopause in Women
Menopause is a condition that every healthy woman will experience as she reaches middle age, typically between the ages of 35-59. It is a natural, gradual process that occurs when a woman’s ovaries produce less estrogen and progesterone, and her lifetime supply of eggs becomes depleted, meaning a full year has passed since her last menstrual cycle. Women going through menopause often experience a combination of some or all of the following symptoms:
Symptoms of Perimenopause and Menopause in Women:
- Hot flashes
- Night sweats and/or cold flashes
- Mood swings
- Sudden tears
- Loss of libido
- Vaginal dryness
- Heart palpitations
- Urinary urgency
- Inability to sleep through the night
- Clammy skin
- Weight gain
Menopause treatments focus on relieving your signs and symptoms and on preventing or lessening chronic conditions that may occur with aging. Perimenopause is the word that describes the time when a woman’s body transitions from her fertile, child-bearing years into middle age. During this natural transition, the body undergoes biologic changes resulting from declining ovarian hormone production.
Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy using Estrogen therapy remains, byfar, the most effective treatment option for relieving menopausal hot flashes. Depending on your personal and family medical history, Santa Monica Menopause Doctor, Gail Jackson, M.D. may recommend estrogen to provide symptom relief for you.
- Andropause and Low T in Men
BHRT is used to treat many hormone-related conditions, including adrenal fatigue, thyroid disorders and fibromyalgia. But the reason many men seek out BHRT is to boost their testosterone levels. Whether you are in your middle age and experiencing andropause, or your body simply isn’t producing enough testosterone, BHRT may be able to reverse and even eliminate your symptoms.
Symptoms of Andropause And Low Testosterone:
- Fewer Erections
- Increased Weight Gain
- Lack of Sexual Desire
- Loss of Hair
- Loss of Muscle Mass
- Sexual Dysfunction
Men may experience low testosterone at any point in life due to stress, poor diet, lack of exercise, a sedentary lifestyle or genetic concerns completely outside of their control.
After age 30, testosterone production begins declining in the body at a rate of about 1% per year. By the time a man reaches about age 50, he’s lost nearly 20% of his testosterone production. When this causes the symptoms listed above, this period is called andropause.
The symptoms above are all signs of low testosterone. Testosterone BHRT can get you the testosterone you need to improve your sexual health, muscles, metabolism and overall wellbeing.
