My Menopause Symptoms Are Terrible: Can You Help?

 My Menopause Symptoms Are Terrible: Can You Help?

Menopause experiences are as unique as individual women. Just as no two women are exactly alike, no two sets of menopause symptoms are the same, including in severity. Finding someone who understands what you’re going through during menopause can be a challenge.

At Ego of Modesto and Lodi, California, our team is here to support you through this natural and normal, if often challenging, time in life. Menopause marks the end of your reproductive years, but the transition doesn’t need to be a nightmare. Treatment options like hormone therapy may be able to help you rediscover your balance.

Menopause and you: changes and symptoms

Menopause occurs when your menstrual cycle ends and you can no longer conceive children. Your body undergoes significant hormonal changes in the period leading up to menopause, known as perimenopause, as well as during the years of your menopause. These changes can result in disruptive symptoms.

Lowered estrogen production during menopause can leave you experiencing common symptoms like hot flashes, disrupted sleep, and metabolic changes. These symptoms can be intrusive and difficult to tolerate, affecting your quality of life.

How hormone therapy can help

Hormone replacement therapy (HRT) may be a good option for you if your primary complaints include hot flashes. Hormone therapy also reduces your risk of cognitive decline, heart disease, and atherosclerosis. We use bioidentical hormones, which may be easier for your body to use due to chemical similarities with your natural hormones.

Since lower levels of natural estrogen production cause many menopause symptoms, it makes sense that bioidentical hormone therapy can help give you relief. People have differing levels of success with hormone therapy. The team at Ego can help you decide if this is a good solution for you.

Other options: supplementation and lifestyle change

For some, hormone therapy doesn’t do enough to resolve menopause symptoms. Others aren’t able to use hormones or prefer not to do so. If that’s you, you still have plenty of options to soothe and reduce your menopause symptoms. Reach out to the team at Ego for a symptom treatment plan that you can feel comfortable with.

Depending on the menopause symptoms that are troubling you, we may recommend therapies, interventions, and changes including:

No matter your menopause symptoms, the team at Ego is here for you. With our support, you can find the menopause management strategies that work most effectively for you.
