Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT)
Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) is an FDA-approved treatment method for managing menopause symptoms.
And although the treatment can’t stop menopause, it can ease the symptoms and drastically improve your quality of life.
If you have been experiencing symptoms of hormonal imbalance, our Orange County OBGYN can run a series of checks on you to determine if you are fit for HRT. It is worth noting that hormone replacement is not ideal for everyone.
If you have previously been diagnosed with liver disease, blood clots in legs or lungs, breast cancer or any of the gynecologic cancers, this treatment method isn’t recommended.
Also, you may not need HRT if you don't have any symptoms of menopause or if you went through menopause after you turned 45. Our Newport Beach, CA HRT experts can walk you through other options that are available for managing your long-term health.
If HRT is not suitable for you, our gynecologist can recommend other FDA-approved alternatives. Non-hormonal therapies can be effective in managing menopause symptoms if used under the guidance of a medical professional.
Usually, these treatments focus on directly addressing the symptoms you might be facing. For instance, the use of certain antidepressant medications may be recommended for managing hot flashes. Stress management and deep breathing techniques can likewise be used for coping with the psychological health that may feature at the onset of menopause.
There are numerous non-estrogen treatments that your Newport Beach HRT specialist can walk you through based on your unique needs.
Are Over-The-Counter Dietary Supplements an Option?
There are a variety of dietary supplements in the market that claim to manage menopausal symptoms. Care should, however, be taken when buying products making outrageous medical health claims.
The FDA does not regulate the production of dietary supplements and as such it is impossible to guarantee their safety or effectiveness.
Before trying any supplement, always consult your gynecologist for professional advice. They will be able to conduct a checkup and advice you on the right supplements to get (if your body needs them).
In most cases, a balanced diet is all it takes to get all the key nutrients your body needs at this phase of life.
