  2. Understanding the Importance of Hormone Therapy In Michigan For many years, doctors have been prescribing hormone therapy for treatment of menopause and reducing the risk of heart disease and osteoporosis in women in Michigan. If you live in this area, you do not have to put up with the unpleasant symptoms that come with middle age because you can also use this therapy to control them. It is not only women that are benefiting greatly from this therapy, but also men. Andropause, which is the male version of menopause, comes with unpleasant symptoms that some people cannot put up with, for instance low sex drive, erectile dysfunction, hair loss, just to mention but a few. www.genemedics.com

  3. Understanding the Importance of Hormone Therapy In Michigan In many women, menopause symptoms usually kick in when they reach ages 45 to 50. However, in other women, these symptoms start showing even when they have not reached the 40 age mark. This can be devastating especially if someone is still hoping to get children. When a woman notices the menopause symptoms early and starts taking the therapy immediately, she can still be able to maintain normal levels of estrogen hormone which is responsible for regulating periods and helping her conceive. www.genemedics.com

  4. Understanding the Importance of Hormone Therapy In Michigan Apart from regulating menstrual periods and helping women conceive, estrogen also plays other important roles in a woman’s body. It aids in controlling skin temperature, bone density, as well as keeping the vagina moist. When most women reach menopause, they usually complain about painful sexual intercourse as a result of vaginal dryness. There are also cases of bone fractures in some women as a result of bone thinning which leads to osteoporosis. www.genemedics.com

  5. Understanding the Importance of Hormone Therapy In Michigan When hormone therapy is taken, these problems can be avoided. Other common menopausal symptoms that women experience as a result of low levels of estrogen in their bodies include hot flushes, night sweats and mood swings. Most of them usually pass in a period of two to five years, but others such as vaginal dryness may become worse if a woman does not start taking the therapy as soon as possible. The risk of osteoporosis is also likely to increase with age if the therapy is not taken. www.genemedics.com

  6. Understanding the Importance of Hormone Therapy In Michigan Progesterone is also taken during hormone replacement therapy. Even though a drop in its level in the body does not have adverse effects as falling levels of estrogen, it plays a very important role especially for women that are still hoping to get pregnant. It is responsible for making the womb ready for pregnancy. Progesterone also aids in protecting the lining of the womb. www.genemedics.com

  7. Understanding the Importance of Hormone Therapy In Michigan Taking estrogen on its own is not recommended in women that have not removed their uterus. This is because it increases the risk of womb cancer, which is also referred to as endometrial cancer. To avoid this risk, a synthetic form of progesterone is usually used together with estrogen during hormone therapy in women that still have their uterus. However, for women that have had a hysterectomy, they can be able to take estrogen only when taking the therapy. www.genemedics.com
