Hormone Therapy for Women Chicago

Balance your Hormones, Feel Like Yourself Again

It’s not you—during menopause your hormones go crazy. And that makes you feel crazy! As women, we might think of ourselves as being pretty used to the trials of rapid hormone changes. After all, we experience hormone changes every month during menstruation! But nothing can quite prepare you for the hormone imbalance that comes with menopause. 

Menopause begins with a sharp decrease in the amount of estrogen your body produces. At this stage in life, estrogen levels start to decrease as the sexual organs retire from their reproductive responsibilities. This sudden change in hormone levels often causes a range of uncomfortable symptoms:

  • Hot flashes
  • Night sweats
  • Rapid changes in mood
  • Changes in libido
  • Vaginal dryness
  • Irregular menstruation 

The good news is that you don’t have to suffer with these symptoms when menopause comes around. By balancing your hormones at Balanced Flow Wellness with hormone therapy for women in Chicago, you can retain your optimal hormone levels well after menopause.

Here are the top 3 ways hormone optimization therapy can bring physical and mental balance back into your life: 

1. Improve Your Energy Levels

Maintaining the right amount of estrogen in your body can go a long way in stabilizing and improving your mood. Estrogen has been linked to the process of controlling another important chemical in your body: serotonin. Studies have shown that the presence of estrogen can increase levels of serotonin, which releases endorphins and contributes to good feelings. 

2. Help You Lose or Maintain Weight

Estrogen and other hormones are also involved in the maintenance of the metabolism. The decrease of estrogen during menopause contributes to slowing down the metabolism. Without a significant change in diet, a percentage of your regular caloric intake is stored as fat, rather than being used for energy.

Estrogen, along with progesterone (another hormone affected by menopause) also contributes to the building of muscle mass. Balanced levels of estrogen and progesterone can improve muscle mass and help you maintain or lose weight. 

3. Increase Libido

Estrogen is not a sex hormone just in name. This hormone has quite the effect on sexual enjoyment and desire. Estrogen is responsible for your vagina’s natural lubrication and the strength and elasticity of the vaginal walls. 

Many women who go through menopause experience discomfort during sex and a decrease in libido because of a plunge in estrogen levels. Balancing your hormone levels with hormone optimization therapy can improve libido and increase pleasure in your sex life.
