Hormone Therapy for Menopausal Women

By: Dr. Gary Bellman on May 30, 2013

The term menopause is used to describe any changes a woman feels just before or after she stops menstruating, marking the end of her reproductive period.  When menopausal symptoms occur, they include hot flashes, night sweats, pain during intercourse, increased anxiety or irritability, and the need to urinate more often.

These days, many menopausal women are turning to testosterone to provide what estrogen alone cannot….renewed sexual desire.

Often times, the roles of testosterone may be misunderstood;  This hormone is the most celebrated, feared, and misunderstood of all hormones.  Testosterone helps build strength in your bones and  muscles and can even help you think clearly.  Without it, you can find yourself in a bit of a ‘fog’.  When balanced by other hormones, testosterone plays a lead role in the health and well-being of both sexes.

As women age, their bodies produce less testosterone, estrogen, and progesterone.  By age 40, women produce about half the testosterone they did in their twenties.  These levels drop further once the onset of menopause begins or for women who have had their ovaries removed.

Many physicians believe that diminished energy, decreased sexual desire and low-levels of energy and mood that some women experience during and after menopause are directly related to declining levels of testosterone.

The key is to tailor dosages to the individual needs of women alongside balancing estrogen and progesterone, rather than providing a “one size fits all” prescription.

For women wanting to look further into balancing their hormones, schedule a consultation today!  Dr. Bellman is well versed and is an expert in his field.
