If you are suffering with hot flashes, night sweats, insomnia, vaginal dryness, lack of sex drive, fatigue, aches and pains, poor memory and concentration, moodiness or depression due to menopause, you are a candidate for menopause hormone therapy and bioidentical hormone pellets. There are many menopause therapy options available, such as topical creams, patches or pills. However, many find these options to come with unwanted nuisances; creams are messy and don’t work well, and pills create swings in blood hormone levels on a daily basis.
In most cases, bioidentical hormone replacement pellets are the most effective choice. In the natural pre-menopausal state, ovaries make 3 types of estrogen as well as testosterone and progesterone. These hormones are maintained in a balance. Menopause hormone therapy with bioidentical hormone pellets is better able to mimic pre-menopausal physiologic levels of estradiol and estrone, 2 of the 3 types of estrogen that are produced by the ovaries. Bioidentical hormone pellets also offer the option of adding testosterone, which is produced by the ovaries along with estrogen before menopause.
In studies, when compared to conventional hormone replacement therapy, bioidentical hormone pellets have been shown to be extremely effective for relief of menopausal symptoms, maintenance of bone density, restoration of sleep patterns, and improvement in sex drive, libido, sexual response and performance, relief of depression, anxiety, irritability, mood swings, and many others. Bioidentical hormone pellet implants have been used to treat migraine and menstrual headaches as well. Moreover, hundreds of studies show natural testosterone to be highly preventative against breast cancer, and osteoporosis.
Oftentimes, women who receive hormone pellets find that they feel normal again, many after suffering for years with difficult menopausal symptoms. These women report no more hot flashes or night sweats. They regain their ability to sleep through the night peacefully and wake up feeling refreshed with a general feeling of well-being.
