Most women know that menopause occurs when estrogen drops precipitously around age 50-55 resulting (usually) in hot flashes and night sweats. However, most women do not realize that approximately 10 years earlier, Progesterone and Testosterone, the other sex hormones, begin to decrease. This is called “Perimenopause.” During this period, weight tends to increase (especially belly fat), periods can become irregular or difficult, the risk of breast and endometrial cancer increases, energy and stamina decrease, and libido drops.
Bioidentical hormone therapy reverses those trends helping women in the 40-55 year age range feel and act more youthful in a safe, natural way. At BioVitality, we specialize in hormonal optimization through bioidentical therapies. Call today for a complimentary consultation with the doctor.
