Understanding Hormonal Changes During Menopause

When regular menstruation stops, levels of estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone decrease, setting off a variety of possible symptoms. These hormones control anxiety, appetite, body temperature, brain function, heart rate, metabolism, mood, sleep cycles, and many other functions that can lead to uncomfortable or disruptive symptoms. The great majority of women experience at least one of these symptoms such as night sweats, hot flashes, vaginal dryness, weight gain, difficulty sleeping, rapid heart rate, and fatigue.

Managing Menopause Symptoms

While some women can address symptoms with lifestyle changes, others require hormone replacement therapy (HRT) to relieve symptoms of menopause. The reduced hormones are replaced at a lower level when menopause begins with estrogen, progesterone, or both.

Options for Hormone Replacement Therapy

To restore balance, there are different combinations of hormones and different ways to take them including creams, patches, pellets, and pills. Our providers will work with you to find a treatment plan that’s right for you.
