Hormone Support

Women have unique hormonal needs. Not only do a woman’s hormones fluctuate throughout the month during her reproductive years, but they also change dramatically over her lifespan. The symptoms of perimenopause can be a huge issue for women in their late 30s, 40s, and 50s.

Many women find themselves feeling irritable or tired during the day, and may suffer from hot flashes and other symptoms. After menopause is finished, these usually settle down, but women may be bothered by other symptoms, including skin and vaginal dryness. All of these health issues are caused by changes in the balance of hormones, especially estrogen and progesterone.

Biosynthetic Hormones

Many women want to take advantage of hormonal support to help them through these challenging years. Scientific research has given us biosynthetic hormones, which mimic those that are naturally present in the body

Not every woman needs or wants to take these, but when low hormone levels are causing symptoms, relief may be found in taking hormonal treatment. However, the balance is delicate, and it takes a great deal of time to manage these hormones successfully. It also takes a high level of skill on the part of the clinician, who must keep up-to-date with the latest testing and treatment methods.

Skillfully Manage Hormonal Issues

Unfortunately, most medical practitioners in the public health system lack the time to skillfully manage hormonal issues. With each doctor managing 2000 or more patients, it’s hard for doctors to spend the necessary time with a woman to optimize her hormonal status. Often, women’s hormones are not even tested, or are tested only infrequently.

At FEMME, we ensure that our clinicians have plenty of time to spend with our members. You’ll receive support as you navigate the hormonal changes of life as a woman. Our medical staff are hand-selected for their medical expertise, so you can feel confident that they’re up-to-date on the latest science. These highly-trained doctors are experts at helping women to feel energetic and vibrant through hormonal balancing.

Aging means changes in your hormones, but it shouldn’t mean that you suffer and lose your zest for life. Hormonal balancing and/or Hormone Replacement through Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) could help you to manage your symptoms and get your life back.
