Posted on May 8, 2017 by: admin_metro

On average, women go through menopause around the age of 50. With this may come hot flashes, night sweats, mood changes, depression, painful intercourse, forgetfulness, and vaginal dryness. Although the immediate effects are apparent, some women experience deficiencies leading to bone thinning. In order to improve sleep patterns, mood, sex drive, concentration, and more, women today are considering various types of hormone replacement therapies and other treatments that will help improve the effects of menopause. Here are just a few to consider:

Estrogen Replacement Therapy

During menopause, your estrogen significantly decreases. This can cause a lower a sex drive, fatigue, alter your metabolism, and even result in physical changes in your skin, breasts, etc. Estrogen replacement therapy can increase your energy, sex drive, improve lean body mass, and improve your overall health.

Progesterone Replacement Therapy

Progesterone is responsible for cortisol levels (or the stress hormone), sex hormones, maintaining mental clarity and healthy blood sugar, etc. During menopause, this important hormone decreases. By restoring balance, you can increase energy, sex drive, and see an overall improvement in your health.

Vaginal Rejuvenation

During menopause, you will experience laxity and some dryness in your vagina. NeuViVa is a vaginal rejuvenation treatment that uses CO2 laser technology to promote mucosal regeneration and stimulate new collagen production. Then, the tissues can naturally thicken and restore volume. Patients will experience tighter vaginal walls, improved dryness, and improvement of overall vaginal feminine health.
