As women approach middle age, it’s natural for their bodies to produce smaller and smaller amounts of estrogen. And estrogen decrease affects the body in a number of ways, ranging from a loss of sexual vitality to a general lapse in physical wellbeing. Women faced with estrogen shortages may sometimes feel like they’re simply not themselves anymore; not only can lowered estrogen erode self-confidence, but it can also have a negative impact on marriages and relationships, as women simply don’t have the sexual appetite they once did.

The good news is that none of this has to be permanent. There are safe and effective ways for women to feel like their younger selves again, and to counteract the effects of lowered estrogen levels. We are pleased to offer estrogen therapy at LongevityMed in Raleigh, NC.

Estrogen Therapy in Raleigh, NC

The estrogen therapy process begins with a simple free consultation. In a relaxed and confidential setting, you can tell us more about some of the ill effects you’ve noticed, whether that’s night sweats, hot flashes, mood swings, or sexual dysfunction. From there, we’ll do some simple lab work to get a clear picture of your current hormone production.

Estrogen therapy doesn’t come with a recipe to follow; everything we do is customized to meet the client’s needs. Once we get a clear sense of your current estrogen level, we’ll be able to recommend a treatment that’s tailored to your body and to your medical goals.

The estrogen supplements we provide are bioidentical, which means they are biologically the exact same as the estrogen your body makes on its own. This is a crucial point about wellness medicine: The goal isn’t to fill your body with foreign or synthetic substances, but rather to augment your naturally occurring hormone levels. Note also that the estrogen treatments we administer can be done in pellets, here in the office, or with injections that you administer at home. We’re happy to talk with you about the type of treatment that best meets your needs.
