Menopausal Symptoms

By: Monica Blasko | May 1 2007 | 384 words | 1144 hits

There is a time in a women's life where she will start to experience menopausal symptoms. Some of these symptoms of menopause are due to a loss of estrogen. Some of the common symptoms associated with menopause are hot flashes, restless sleep, night sweats, and potential bone loss. Women can also become emotional, and expressions of tearfulness or depression can be a result of the lack of estrogen.
To help relieve some of these menopausal symptoms many women choose HRT, or hormone replacement therapy, to bring estrogen levels back to what they were. There are different forms of hormones, including human, animal and synthetic. Synthetic hormones can cause some side effects, but bio-identical hormones are chemically identical to hormones made by the human body, and do not have the side effects that the synthetic ones sometimes do.
When female menopausal symptoms are causing you to consider hormone replacement therapy make sure you find a compounding pharmacy that will mix the medications your doctor prescribes for you to order, so you get the exact strength and form that will best suit your specific health needs.
Some menopausal symptoms can occur from estrogen excess. These symptoms of menopause can include weight gain, mood swings, uterine fibroids, fibrocystic breasts, and low thyroid symptoms such as a cold body temperature. Talk to your pharmacy when you have questions about estrogen excess, and we can customize the medications your doctor prescribes so that you get relief from female menopausal symptoms.
Other symptoms of menopause can include declining progesterone levels. This situation can lead to symptoms including headaches, anxiety and irritability, joint pain, cramping, and several of the symptoms that are common with estrogen excess. While some women have a decline in progesterone, others exhibit menopausal symptoms that are caused by excessive amounts of progesterone. This can cause somnolence, gastrointestinal bloating, drowsiness, and foggy thinking.
Perhaps you have noticed symptoms of prolonged fatigue and muscle weakness, even heart palpitations, accompanied by decreased muscle mass and a diminished sense of well-being. On the other hand, you may have wondered why your voice was getting deeper, you are losing scalp hair, and experiencing acne. These menopausal symptoms are due to decreases and excesses in testosterone levels, which can occur in a woman's middle years. Many of these symptoms can be alleviated through the use of hormone replacement therapy.
