For women experiencing menopausal symptoms – such as hot flashes, vaginal dryness and insomnia – there are a number of treatment options that can be prescribed. To relieve the symptoms of menopause, doctors may prescribe synthetic hormone therapy. This can involve the use of estrogen alone or with another hormone called progesterone. The two hormones normally help to regulate a woman’s menstrual cycle. Synthetic medications may have unwanted side effects and may not be tolerated by many women. For women who prefer a more natural alternative, HRT is an important option.
Premenstrual Syndrome (PMS) can include a range of physical, psychological and emotional symptoms related to a woman’s menstrual cycle. Treatment options include medications to correct hormone imbalances, including compounded HRT, lifestyle changes and nutritional supplements.
At some point, most women will experience some sort of sexual dysfunction, usually because of a hormone imbalance, a physical condition such as arthritis, surgery, or other pain or neurological problems. Psychological problems, such as untreated anxiety, depression, or stress can also affect women and their sexual health. Sexual dysfunction can often be successfully treated with hormone therapy, to help a women regain the correct balance of hormones in her body. HRT is a safe, natural alternative for many women.
Infertility does not have a single cause because successful pregnancy is a multi-step chain of events. Simply described, pregnancy includes the following steps: A woman’s ovaries must be able to release a viable egg, which then must be able to travel down the fallopian tube. The man must be able to ejaculate, and his sperm must be able to travel to the fallopian tube. The sperm and egg must unite to fertilize the egg. The fertilized egg must attach to the inside of a receptive uterus (or implant) and be nurtured by the body to allow the fetus to develop and grow until it is ready for birth. Problems with any of these steps can lead to infertility.
