Reduced Hormone Levels in Women
Menopause is the most common cause of low hormone levels in women. Most women begin the transition in their mid to late 40s, with menopause commonly occurring around age 50. There are three distinct stages in the transition for women: perimenopause, menopause and post-menopause. Perimenopause refers to the transition leading to menopause, while post-menopause occurs when menstrual periods have stopped completely. For a majority of women, menopause-related symptoms are usually at their worst in the year after their last menstrual period and can last between 3-5 years.
For women, most Hormone Replacement Therapy or HRT plans will include estrogen, progesterone, testosterone, or a combination of these. This is because the body naturally decreases estrogen production during menopause.

- Heavy bleeding during periods
- Spotting between periods

Bioidentical Hormone Therapy for Women
Bioidentical hormones mimic the hormones that are naturally produced by the body to renew your vitality more effectively than synthetic hormones. Essentially, the body cannot distinguish between bioidentical hormones and your natural hormones. BHRT has shown to produce fewer side effects than synthetic HRT and can be individualized for each patient to supply the exact needed dose of hormones.
Hormones can be administered in a number of ways. Your Nouveau Health & Wellness HRT specialist will recommend the type of treatment that best fits your needs and lifestyle. Creams, gels, tablets, and injectables are all available options.
Benefits of BHRT include increased sex drive, reduced fatigue, improved sleep, and improved memory and concentration. Patients also commonly find that it is easier to lose weight while taking BHRT. Hormone therapy can also reduce the risk of osteoporosis, heart disease, dementia, and other age-related illnesses.
Good Candidates for HRT
Most women who have symptoms related to reduced hormones are good candidates for hormone replacement therapy. However, those who have certain conditions such as blood clots, some types of cancer, stroke, or heart, liver, or gallbladder disease should not undergo HRT. Be sure to share your medical history with your HRT provider during your consultation to make sure that the treatment is right for you.
Can you stop menopause symptoms with hormone therapy?
Hormone replacement therapy with bioidentical hormones can be an effective solution to specific or wide-ranging symptoms that are associated with the hormone fluctuations experienced during menopause.
Who is a good candidate for hormone replacement therapy?
Women who have symptoms related to menopause or perimenopause might benefit from HRT to help relieve their symptoms. However, persisting symptoms in postmenopause might be indicative of an underlying condition, and those with certain diseases or medical histories should not risk undergoing hormone therapy.
