If you are a woman, you can’t escape menopause. It’s going to happen. It’s a matter of when and how noticeably it will start. When menopause sets in, your reproductive system begins to slow down. Your estrogen and progesterone levels are going to drop. It your hormones drop at a significant rate, you are going to have symptoms that will really make you feel the difference. If you feel like menopause is getting the best of you, you can take charge with menopause treatment. Hormone replacement therapy can help you to feel better.
How Do You Know You Need Menopause Treatment?
Menopause is a long, gradual process. You may begin with your symptoms in your 40s. Some women don’t experience them until they are in their 50s. They can hang on until you are in your 60s. Two of the most common signs of menopause are hot flashes and night sweats. However, you can expect other symptoms as well. You may notice that you are really tired all the time. You may not be able to power through your workout that you have been doing for years. Vaginal changes, such as irritation and dryness, are common as well. Your sexual libido may decrease as well. If these symptoms fit you and you are at an age when your reproductive system is getting ready to shut down, hormone replacement can help you to address your symptoms.
