Often men and women are told that their symptoms of fatigue, lack of energy, memory loss, hot flushes/night sweats, decreased libido and other significant issues are just a sign of aging and that they will just have to live with it, but here at Acadia Women's Health, we want you to know that you don't have to!
We offer testing and individualized treatment options for men and women to combat these symptoms of aging. Some women are surprised to hear that they might need testosterone replacement as well as estrogen replacement. Peri-menopausal women and post-menopausal women usually need some of both. Testosterone levels are usually around 5-10% that of a man. (Testosterone helps with a number of issues including libido, mood stabilization, brain function, and bone density.)
Many women have tried other various kinds of hormone replacement therapy (HRT), and have simply been dissatisfied with the way they have felt. Others have worried about reports of increased breast cancer or heart attacks. Many women do not do well on any other form of HRT except sub dermal bioidentical pellet therapy. For many patients, Bioidentical Hormonal Pellet Therapy has been shown to be the most effective and the most bioidentical method to replace hormones in both men and women.
