Hormone Replacement Q & A

What is hormone replacement for women?

Although there's no escaping the march of time, modern medicine can now slow the tell-tale signs of aging through bioidentical hormone replacement. The cutting-edge therapy can be a safe, effective solution to combat the effects of aging with natural hormones that mimic the ones in your own body.

The treatment helps to restore and balance your hormone levels, with precise doses of progesterone, estrogen, DHEA, and more. The goal is to improve your quality of life by returning your hormone levels to normal.

Your provider at Peach Medical Group recommends hormone replacement to relieve perimenopausal and menopausal symptoms. Menopause occurs at age 52 for the average woman. Through this process, your ovaries make less and less estrogen, causing several uncomfortable symptoms.

Bioidentical hormones help replace the hormones your body has lost. Bioidentical hormones are produced from plants and contain all of the same properties as the estrogen your body makes. Beyond replacing estrogen, these natural hormones supplement progesterone and other hormones your body has lost.

Are bioidentical hormones better than synthetics?

Hormones used in traditional replacement therapy are usually made of synthetic materials or animal urine. In comparison, bioidentical hormones are created from plant materials, a more natural alternative.

The providers at Peach Medical Group recommend natural estrogen instead of synthetic estrogen because of its benefits.

What are the benefits of estrogen hormone therapy?

Hormone therapy to replace the estrogen you've lost helps to protect you from the following ailments and symptoms:

  • Heart disease
  • Stroke
  • Osteoporosis
  • Alzheimer's disease and memory disorders
  • Urinary incontinence
  • Hot flashes
  • Mood swings
  • Fatigue

The therapy also helps with vaginal atrophy to restore your intimate wellbeing.

Your provider at Peach Medical Group also recommends balancing estrogen with progesterone to achieve all the benefits of hormone replacement.

Why is progesterone therapy necessary?

Progesterone, a hormone secreted by your ovaries until menopause, helps to protect against a number of health conditions, including:

  • Breast and uterine cancer
  • Ovarian cysts
  • Fibrocystic disease
  • Bone loss

Progesterone also causes common menopausal symptoms, which is why your provider recommends a balanced regime that includes both estrogen and progesterone.
