Hormone Replacement Therapy: A Solution for Your Debilitating Menopausal Symptoms

Don't let menopause stop you.

The symptoms associated with the hormone fluctuations of menopause can be overwhelming and even debilitating for some women.  

The medical team at Primary Care Walk-In Medical Clinic, located in Gilbert and Fountain Hills, Arizona, understands the impact menopause-related symptoms have on your quality of life and offers treatment solutions, including hormone replacement therapy, to help you on your journey at the end of your childbearing years.

How menopause changes your life

Menopause is the time when your periods stop for 12 consecutive months, signaling the end of your childbearing years. The months and years leading up to your final period are known as perimenopause, a time when many of the known symptoms of menopause occur.

These symptoms mostly relate to fluctuations in your reproductive hormones, notably estrogen and progesterone. Your body slows down its production of hormones as you get older and instead of a nice, smooth ride, hormones can fluctuate wildly.

These hormone changes can occur without you even noticing any issues or can have such a significant impact on your life, you seek out medical help. Some of the most common symptoms relating to menopause include:

Your sexual health can also suffer as vaginal dryness and irritation worsen and your interest in sex declines. Sexual dysfunction and the many other symptoms can affect not just your physical health, but also your mental and emotional health and your relationships.

Why hormone replacement therapy is so effective

The purpose of hormone replacement therapy is to restore balance in your hormone levels and provide long-lasting relief of your menopause-related symptoms.

The team at Primary Care Walk-In Medical Clinic offers customized treatment plans using bioidentical hormone pellets to treat your symptoms and enhance your overall quality of life. They implant the pellets just beneath the surface layer of your skin, usually in your hip.

The bioidentical hormone pellets steadily release hormones into your bloodstream that are molecularly similar to the hormones your body makes naturally. However, these hormones are made from plant-based materials, such as yams. Staff also prescribe hormone therapy using other delivery methods, such as patches, suppositories, or topical gels and creams.

As your therapy replenishes low hormone levels, you can achieve significant, long-lasting relief of night sweats, mood swings, and even vaginal irritation within weeks of starting treatment.

The right time to consider hormone replacement therapy

Many women hesitate to seek out treatment for unexplained symptoms that make them feel out of control because of shame or fear. At Primary Care Walk-In Medical Clinic, our medical team offers a judgment-free environment where you can discuss your symptoms and struggles with one of our compassionate medical professionals.

You should visit the clinic when your symptoms start interfering with your life and you’re no longer able to cope with anxiety, sexual dysfunction, or heavy, extended periods. Because effective therapies are available, there’s no need to suffer for another minute.

At your visit, your provider at Primary Care Walk-In Medical Clinic will evaluate the severity of your symptoms, review your medical history, and determine if bioidentical hormone replacement therapy is right for you.
