Access Medical Labs Comprehensive Female Hormone saliva panel helps indicate if your hormone levels are at their prime. In women a decrease of hormone levels such as Progesterone begin to occur prior to menopause meaning they have entered their first stages of Menopause. There are many other factors which can also affect your hormone levels such as poor diet and exercise. Knowing your hormone levels is key in knowing if Hormone Replacement Therapy, HRT,  is right for you.

Female Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy, B-HRT,  (Know Your Levels)

What is Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy, B-HRT?  B-HRT is a natural, non-synthetic treatment for women who have low hormone levels, like a woman going through menopause. HRT is also called estrogen replacement therapy or ERT. With HRT a woman takes estrogen, and often progestin, to help the symptoms caused by low hormone levels in her body.

What are hormones and how do they work?

Hormones are special chemicals that your body makes. The job of hormones is to control how different parts of your body work. The main female hormones are estrogen and progesterone which are made by your ovaries. These hormones are a very important part of your reproductive system.

 Estrogen is made during your menstrual cycle. Its job is to grow a thick layer of tissue inside the uterus (womb) each month. Estrogen also affects your bones and the health of your heart and blood vessels. Progesterone is made by your ovaries during the second half of your menstrual cycle. It further thickens the lining of the uterus. During menopause, usually in the late 40s or early 50s, your ovaries slowly stop making these hormones.

What are the reasons I may not have enough estrogen?

What are the signs and symptoms of a low estrogen level? You can have physical and emotional changes when your estrogen level is low.

Will HRT help these symptoms? You may choose to take HRT to help or prevent the symptoms of low estrogen. Hot flashes and night sweats will occur less often and may possibly go away if you take estrogen. Estrogen helps prevent vaginal dryness and thinning of the tissue inside the vagina. Your chances of breaking a bone are much lower if you take estrogen. HRT may also improve your mood and memory. HRT may reduce your risk of disease.

What are the benefits of hormone therapy?

Estrogen remains the most effective treatment for relief of troublesome menopausal hot flashes and night sweats. It can also ease vaginal symptoms of menopause, such as dryness, itching, burning and discomfort with intercourse.

Long-term hormone therapy for the prevention of postmenopausal conditions is no longer routinely recommended. But women who take estrogen for short-term relief of menopausal symptoms may gain some protection against the following conditions:

Osteoporosis: Studies show that hormone therapy can prevent the bone loss that occurs after menopause, which decreases the risk of osteoporosis-related hip fractures.

Colorectal cancer: Studies show that hormone therapy can decrease the risk of colorectal cancer.

Heart disease: Some data suggest that estrogen can decrease risk of heart disease when taken early in your postmenopausal years. A randomized, controlled clinical trial - the Kronos Early Estrogen Prevention Study (KEEPS) - exploring estrogen use and heart disease in younger postmenopausal women is under way, but it won't be completed for several years.

For women who undergo menopause naturally, estrogen is typically prescribed as part of a combination therapy of estrogen and progestin. This is because estrogen without progestin can increase the risk of uterine cancer. Women who undergo menopause as the result of a hysterectomy can take estrogen alone.

If you have further questions after receiving your report, a phone consult with Dr. Psonak is available for an additional fee.
