Hormone Replacement Therapy Tells Hot Flashes to Chill Out

It’s a fact of life for women.

Menopause brings lots of changes and side effects. From tiredness and irritability to night sweats, hot flashes, vaginal dryness and the loss of that lovin’ feelin’, women can suffer from a long list of issues.

Hormone Replacement Therapy

However, hormone replacement therapy at Harbin Clinic Women’s Center Cartersville provides options to help alleviate the symptoms of menopause. Dr. Ben Warren and Dr. Steven Spivey are able to tailor personalized solutions based on each woman’s symptoms to make sure their hormone replacement needs are met.

“We want women to know there are options for them and they don’t have to deal with the unpleasantness of menopause,” says Dr. Warren. “Every woman’s symptoms are unique to her, so we can create a plan specific to the patient’s needs.”

Reduce Symptoms of Menopause

“Hot flashes, mood swings and dryness don’t have to be a woman’s new ‘normal,’” adds Dr. Spivey. “With hormone replacement therapies, we can help women feel balanced again.”

As many as 6,000 women become menopausal each day in the United States, and statistics show fewer than 20 percent of those women take hormones to help manage the effects of “the change.”

Diminished symptoms aren’t the only benefits of hormone replacement therapy. It’s also been shown to help keep bones strong and ward off the progression of osteoporosis.

Every woman is unique, and some patients with mild symptoms may not need hormone replacement therapy. But each case is different and it’s important to ensure that women who are experiencing symptoms get the information they need.
