As you approach menopause, your body begins to go through a number of changes to transition you into the next phase of life. While some of these are little cause for concern, decreased estrogen production can cause a number of issues that can leave you searching for answers. In Sunnyvale and San Jose, hormone replacement for women to help combat these effects is more readily available than you might think, but what exactly are the risks of going untreated?
Low Estrogen: No Laughing Matter
Over the years, TV sitcoms have poked fun at the changes women experience as they age, but in reality, the effects of low estrogen can be frustrating, embarrassing, and even downright harmful to your health. Common consequences of estrogen deficiency include:
- Decreased sex drive
- Depression and mood swings
- Hot flashes
- Memory weakness
- Urogential atrophy and infections
- Sagging of skin and breasts
- Premature facial wrinkles
Even more concerning than the above, though, is the fact failing to restore estrogen levels at menopause can significantly increase your risk for osteoporosis, heart disease, Alzheimer’s, and colon cancer.
The good news is, Dr. Sani is an expert in the natural and timely replacement of estrogen in women. Not only can hormone replacement therapy help prevent the problems listed above, but it can actually improve memory, balance, muscle tone, promote stronger, shinier hair, enhance vigor, prevent insomnia and anxiety and more. Don’t delay, though. Studies have shown that beginning therapy just before or after menopause greatly increases the body’s ability to take advantage and provide these benefits.
