Menopause TreatmentSpring, TX
The start of menopause is a milestone in one’s life, marking the end of a patient having menstrual cycles. Women usually begin menopause in their 40s or 50s. While many people attempt to write off the pain and symptoms as a natural part of aging, the severity of the symptoms can make daily life difficult. In fact, people who struggle with menopause symptoms may not realize there are professional treatment options.
Find Lasting Symptom Relief
With our treatment methods, we can help to relieve the symptoms of menopause and help patients find relief. Far too often, the symptoms of menopause will negatively impact a woman’s life and make even simple tasks uncomfortable. The pain can interrupt one’s sleep, drain one’s energy and cause other health issues.
If you are struggling with any of the numerous symptoms of menopause, then we can help find a treatment that works for you.
While there are over-the-counter products that claim to help relieve menopause symptoms, they are not always as effective as professional treatment. Many people invest money in at-home remedies or products that do not provide effective long-term relief from the symptoms. We can help to find a solution that works for the patient’s needs.
We can prescribe a treatment method that relieves symptoms within a consistent treatment plan. This means that patients will be able to remain on a set schedule with professional medical care when necessary. With our treatment, we can help to relieve symptoms such as:
- Hot flashes
- Irregular periods
- Night sweats and other sleep problems
- Changes and moods
- Weight gain due to a slower metabolism
- Hair thinning and dry skin
- Loss of fullness in breasts
Part of the reason store-bought treatments do not work for all patients is that menopause involves hormonal changes. The only effective way to treat the fluctuating hormones is by using hormones to help the patient find balance.
The cause of menopause is due to the ovaries producing less estrogen and progesterone, which leads to a decline in fertility. This can alter the length of a woman’s periods along with the flow being heavier or lighter. This can also alter the frequency of periods until, in many cases, the woman stops having them in their early 50s.
It is important to note that the symptoms of menopause are not always just a slight annoyance or ache. The symptoms can be incredibly painful and interrupt crucial moments of a woman’s life. Night sweats and hot flashes can become so bad that they wake a woman from sleep and keep them up throughout the night.
Women can also experience changes in mood and irregular painful periods. Unlike periods in the past, the pain can be greater and more painful during menopause. Since each woman is unique, the symptoms they experience and the severity of each can vary. Seeking professional care will help ensure the woman receives treatment for the specific health problems instead of a broad blanket treatment that is not as effective.

Hormones are part of the endocrine system and control much of the body’s systems. From mood and sexual function to appetite and growth, hormones contribute to a variety of factors. This means that if the hormones are out of balance, then other health issues can occur. Thus, menopause throws the body out of balance by only producing certain hormones or changing the body’s chemistry.
One such treatment we use is hormone replacement therapy. With hormone therapy, we can help patients:
- Provide pain and symptom relief
- Prevent bone loss
- Use a treatment option that is convenient for their lifestyle
- Find relief from vaginal dryness, itching and burning
The hormone treatment will involve providing estrogen to the patient through a skin patch, gel, cream, pill or spray. The form we recommend for the patient will be based on their desires and needs. In extreme cases, removing the uterus in a surgical procedure may become a possible option. However, many women are able to find successful relief from hormone treatment.
This is one of the most effective treatments for menopause since we can customize the level of hormones to balance the patient’s and relieve symptoms. While the patient will mainly continue the treatment at home, we are here to help provide support and guidance along the way. If necessary, we can alter the treatment with changes in the patient’s health.
