Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy during and after Menopause
During and after menopause women seek bioidentical hormone replacement to improve menopausal symptoms of hot flashes, sleep disturbances, mood swings, memory problems, loss of libido, etc. The other very important aspect of bioidentical hormone replacement therapy after menopause is to restore hormonal balance of the body to natural, youthful levels.
Bioidentical hormones offer many important health prevention benefits including:
- protecting the cardiovascular system
- preventing decline in brain function
- balancing mood
- protecting against bone loss and osteoporosis
Menopause usually occurs at the age of late 40s to early 50s. Having a family history of early menopause predisposes a woman to having early menopause herself. Other factors that influence the beginning time of menopause are: smoking and never being pregnant.
