Menopause is not exactly an event in our lives that we look forward to. We hear about it from our mothers or aunts or in videos in health classes we have to take when we’re younger. However, just like other not so pleasant things like taxes or sitting in traffic, menopause is inevitable.
Of course, we know that when we get to be in our mid-40s that menopause is just around the corner, and by 50 menopause will most likely be in full effect. Some of the symptoms of menopause, such as hot flashes and night sweats, are easier to deal with than say, mood swings and behavior changes.
These changes in our body are caused by the decrease of the hormones estrogen and progesterone as we age. While menopause is a natural force in our bodies, we do have options as to how we experience it. One of these options is Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy, or BHRT, available at Juro’s Pharmacy.
Instead of using synthetic estrogen therapy, BHRT uses bio-identical hormones to better sooth the symptoms of our menopause. This therapy can ease discomfort from hot flashes, endometriosis, fibrocystic breasts, vaginal dryness and other menopause symptoms as well.
In addition, Juro’s can customize our therapy. Since every woman experiences menopause differently, many of the one-size fits all treatments are not as effective as we need them to be. The Compounding Center at Juro’s can give us each a customized therapy plan for our specific hormone levels. Not only is the dosage ideal for our hormone level, but the delivery form can be customized for what we like best, whether it’s a topical cream, capsule, lozenge and more.
Menopause can be a physically and emotionally tough time to get through for some of us, but we can make it easier on ourselves with Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy from Juro’s Pharmacy to help manage our symptoms effectively.
