Hot flashes. Night sweats. Fatigue. Depression. Increased anxiety or irritability. The need to urinate more often. A lower sex drive. Reduced muscle mass and... ugh... weight gain.
We're all familiar with the telltale symptoms of menopause, which signals the end of a woman's childbearing years. Whether brought on naturally, or through illness or surgery, the decrease in estrogen in a woman's body will inevitably close that childbearing chapter.
And hey... guys? It's not often talked about, but it happens to you, too. That dip in testosterone levels after 40 can lead to many of the same symptoms. And while many women may welcome this change in life (no more monthly visits from Aunt Ruby!), we're pretty sure that most men are not ready for the most common symptom of "manopause"... erectile dysfunction. Yikes.
Want to sleep better, enjoy increased energy, and get your groove back, both in and out of the bedroom? Cue the wonderful world of hormone replacement therapy. HRT, as it's known, uses bioidentical hormones to replace those that you've lost, balancing and restoring hormonal harmony. You can banish brain fog, lose weight, and feel that spring in your step again.
At Meadows Surgical Arts, Dr. Meadows recommends hormone replacement therapy in the form of hormone pellets for his patients looking to relieve the symptoms of menopause/manopause. Hormone pellets are implants, about the size of a grain of rice, containing those bioidentical hormones (either estrogen or testosterone), that are placed beneath the surface of the skin through a small incision under local anesthesia. Patients can begin to feel symptom relief as soon as 48 hours after placement.
Are you ready to renew your joy in life? Consider hormone replacement therapy for a smile on your face, a spring in your step, and a boost of energy for that next phase in your life. Call one of our offices at (706) 335-3555 (Commerce) or (678) 541-0339 (Buford) to schedule your HRT appointment. Let's do this!
