Explore How Hormone Replacement Therapy Can Help Ease the Transition Through Menopause

The most natural way to ease your transition through menopause is hormone replacement therapy. Reducing stress by taking care of hormonal imbalances lessens your discomfort and helps keep depression and anxiety at bay.

The team at Serrano OBGYN in San Antonio, Texas understand the discomfort and frustrations that can occur during your transition through menopause. Our goal is to offer you options and treatment plans that keep you looking and feeling your very best during all phases of life.

How do you know if you’re in perimenopause, your progression toward menopause? Your body may be giving you signs already. Dietary and environmental toxins can accelerate hormonal imbalances and make symptoms even more difficult to deal with. We can help.

Am I nearing menopause?

Typically, women begin menopause sometime between the ages of 45 and 55. This transition lasts 7-14 years, so it’s important to know what options you have in dealing with this new life change. 

As you near menopause — which occurs 12 months after your last period or following the removal of your ovaries or a hysterectomy — your body’s production of the hormones progesterone and estrogen decreases.

The years leading up to menopause are called perimenopause, a time during which periods become irregular. Once you’re post-menopausal, you’re more likely to have health problems such as osteoporosis and heart disease.

As your hormones decline, you may experience a range of symptoms such as hot flashes, fatigue, and weight gain. Hormone replacement therapy can address your hormone imbalance and reduce your symptoms, easing your transition through menopause.

What are bioidentical hormones?

Bioidentical hormones are chemically identical to the hormones your body produces. Their active ingredients are equivalent to the hormones your body makes in terms of structure, function, and effectiveness. 

Can bioidentical hormone replacement therapy help me?

Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) is ideal for easing the symptoms of perimenopause and menopause. Hormonal imbalances are the root of many issues that plague your daily life, from depression to weight gain. Other problems that BHRT can address include:

BHRT is ideal for banishing unwanted menopausal symptoms safely and effectively.
