Women in their 40s often start wondering if they’re experiencing early menopause symptoms—a phase called perimenopause—associated with falling estrogen levels. Uncomfortable symptoms, such as worsening premenstrual syndrome (PMS), breast tenderness, and heavier periods often indicate the onset of perimenopause. The transition into menopause is typically accompanied by hot flashes, vaginal dryness, insomnia, and mood swings.
Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy offered in Baton Rouge, Shreveport, New Orleans, and throughout Louisiana is an effective treatment. Along with certain lifestyle changes, it can help minimize these symptoms and lower the risk of health conditions that have been linked to menopause. Also called estrogen therapy, HRT is a customized, medically monitored treatment protocol that helps women regain control of their lives.
A customized HRT treatment plan that’s medically monitored provides significant benefits for women of all ages if warranted. No matter your stage of life, deciding whether and when to start HRT is a serious decision—and it’s not one you have to make alone.
