Around the age of 40 to 55, all women experience menopause, which is a normal part of the aging process. It occurs just before or after a woman stops menstruating. At this point, it is the end of her reproductive period. During the transition, it is normal for a woman to have a variety of symptoms that can impact her quality of life. If you are in menopause, you can stop your discomfort and regain your enjoyment for life with the help of your gynecologist in Dallas. Now, you can choose natural solutions to resolve your symptoms.
What Causes Menopause?
A woman has an infinite number of eggs stored in her ovaries, which are present at birth. The ovaries produce the hormones progesterone and estrogen that control a woman’s ovulation and menstruation. When the ovaries no longer release an egg every month, it causes menstruation to stop. This is when menopause occurs; however, there are times when it can be brought on by an underlying issue, such as a hysterectomy or chemotherapy.
No matter the reason, the change can cause fluctuations with your hormone levels, which can lead to several symptoms.
What are the Symptoms of Menopause?
Menopause can cause an array of symptoms, such as:
- Hot flashes
- Weight gain
- Vaginal dryness
- Difficulty concentrating
- Memory problems
- Reduce libido
- Dry skin, mouth, and eyes
- Increased urination
- Sore or tender breasts
- Racing heart
- Urinary tract infections
- Decreased muscle mass
- Painful or stiff joints
- Reduced bone mass
- Less full breasts
- Hair thinning or loss
- Increased hair growth
Can I Stop the Symptoms of Menopause?
Many symptoms of menopause are resolved after your hormones are rebalanced. Traditional treatment uses synthetic hormones, which are produced in a laboratory. Although they are widely used in conventional medicine, they are not made from naturally occurring substances. As a result, they may not align with your body, and there can be several unwanted side effects. As an alternative, many women prefer bioidentical hormones.
Bioidentical hormones are derived from substances that are found in nature. Your treatment plan only uses those you need for a truly individualized solution. Since they are found in nature, your body accepts them, and there are not any unwanted side effects.
