Bio-identical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) is a treatment which uses hormones, which are identical to your own. This helps to balance or replace your own hormones, when you are suffering from symptoms of the menopause or Premenstrual Syndrome (PMS).
Women in the menopause often suffer from sleeping difficulties a long time before they experience their first hot flush or night sweat. Often they are troubled by anxiety and mood swings. Some women in the menopause feel they have lost their energy and libido.
PMS or PMDD can cause a variety of symptoms, but is most well known for emotional difficulties that have a clear cyclical pattern. Stabilising the hormonal fluctuations with Bio-identical HRT can help to create a stable hormonal environment.
After a consultation with Dr. McCulloch, she may recommend blood testing to determine exactly what hormone imbalances are affecting you. In some cases, Bio-identical hormone replacement therapy may not be necessary or suitable. Lifestyle and environmental factors can have a positive effect on your hormones, too. Try some relaxation, meditation or CBT.
