Menopausal Patients Choose Hormone Implants To Treat Persistent Symptoms
More and More Menopausal Patients Choose Hormone Implants To Treat Their Symptoms
I’m still experiencing menopause symptoms after trying hormone replacement therapy. What else can I do?
Despite trying various hormone replacement therapies, many menopausal women are still experiencing debilitating symptoms that impact their everyday lives. These symptoms often include irritability, loss of libido, hot flashes, sleep deprivation, and more. Thankfully, there’s a treatment option I often suggest to the patients who visit my private practice with this very problem. Hormone implants have shown tremendous success in offering relief and restoring your quality of life.
What is the procedure like?
The hormone implantation procedure actually only takes a few minutes. We perform the procedure at our offices by injecting a small amount of local anesthesia to minimize discomfort. The pellet, which is slightly larger a grain of rice, is implanted into the subcutaneous tissue. There, it’s able to mimic your body’s natural estrogen, which is then absorbed into the bloodstream.
How do hormone implants treat persistent symptoms?
A fluctuation in hormone levels causes the inconvenient array of symptoms many women experience during menopause. Hormone implants provide a natural method for delivering these depleting hormones into the body. Depending on the dosage, implants can deliver these hormones at consistent levels for three to six months. After that time, the pellet will dissolve on its own. Menopausal patients who failed to see success in other forms of hormone replacement therapy have experienced a high success rate with the pellets, making it an optimal treatment choice.
In addition to discovering that hormone implants treat persistent symptoms, menopausal women have also been able to recover their libido, sexuality, quality of life, and sense of well being with this treatment option.
How do I know this is the right treatment option for me?
Many of my patients have experienced menopausal symptoms after a hysterectomy or after their doctor prescribed medication to treat their symptoms. If you are experiencing debilitating menopause symptoms, hormone implants could be the alternative treatment option you’re looking for.
