Women experience hormone fluctuations throughout their lives, but the most noticeable changes happen when a woman reaches the age of menopause.
When the female body starts to change during pre-menopause and menopause, estrogen levels drop and cause uncomfortable symptoms. Hormone replacement therapy is an option to balance the hormones and improve the overall quality of life.

Symptoms of Hormone Imbalances
in Women

How do you know if your hormones are imbalanced? The most common symptoms include:

• Unexplained weight loss or weight gain
• Irregular menstruation
• Adult acne
• Sleep problems
• Brain fog
• Loss of libido

• Fatigue
• Hot flashes
• Vaginal discomfort
• Anxiety or depression
• Changes in bowel movements

If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, reach out to our team at BioEdge Medical for a consultation. We offer full-service solutions, including testing and diagnostics to determine your current hormone levels. Then, a personalized hormone replacement therapy treatment plan can be designed based on your unique needs.

Common Causes of Hormonal Imbalances

It’s natural for hormones to rise and fall throughout the day. But there are periods of life when more dramatic fluctuations and changes occur: during puberty, pregnancy, and menopause.

Additionally, there are other reasons why your hormone levels might be irregular at times. Common causes include:

    • Certain medications
    • Stress
    • Steroid use
  • Tumors
  • Injury to an endocrine gland
  • Autoimmune conditions

Hormone Replacement Therapy:
Treatment Options for Women

When you meet with a specialist at BioEdge Medical, we order blood tests to check hormone levels and other health markers.
Our goal is to identify the underlying reason for your hormone imbalances. Then the treatment plan can be customized accordingly.
Treatment options might include oral medication, injection medication, or surgery.

FAQ: Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) for Women

This treatment adds hormones to the body to create the ideal balance of estrogen and progestin. Introducing these hormones in the body can help to alleviate symptoms of menopause.

Estrogen can be replaced using systemic hormone therapy in the form of a cream, gel, skin patch, pill, or injection. Another option includes a low-dose vaginal product to treat the vaginal and urinary symptoms relating to menopause.

Women who benefit the most from hormone replacement therapy have moderate or severe hot flashes, need to improve bone strength, have vaginal symptoms relating to menopause (itching, dryness, burning, or other discomfort), and are at the age of pre-menopause or menopause.

As with any type of medication, hormone replacement therapy has potential side effects. Possible health complications might include blood clots, heart disease, or breast cancer.

The most effective way to minimize potential risks and side effects is by working with a medical provider who specializes in this type of treatment. Our team at BioEdge Medical works with each patient to find the best product and delivery method for your unique needs.
