Estrogen Hormone Replacement Medicines
American Integrative Pharmacy offers women centric bioidentical estrogen replacement therapy if you are suffering from low estrogen levels. This is an important service since low estrogen levels can affect a woman’s well being and health. It can also create troublesome symptoms.
Estrogen is produced in the adrenal glands and the ovaries and is available in three forms – estriol, estradiol, and estrone.
- Estriol is secreted during pregnancy after being manufactured in the placenta.
- Estradiol is in charge of female characteristics and sexual functions being the main sex hormone in women of childbearing age. Estradiol tends to play an important role in women’s health as well.
- Estrone is the only type of estrogen that exists post menopause.
American Integrative Pharmacy (AIP), led by Dr. Neema Yazdanpanah, provides established and basic compounding medications to patients in Long Beach, Torrance, Los Angeles, South Bay Orange County, Southern California areas, and online nationwide.
Reasons for Estrogen Level Dips
Numerous factors and conditions can contribute to a drop in estrogen levels. This includes the following:
- Perimenopause or menopause when menses stop
- Hypogonadism when the glands stop producing hormones
- Hypopituitarism when the pituitary gland doesn’t produce adequate levels of hormone
- Certain drugs like clomiphene
- Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS)
- Ovarian or adrenal cancer
Unpleasant Symptoms Related to Low Estrogen Levels
Numerous symptoms can be caused by low estrogen such as hot flashes, absence of menstrual periods, night sweats, painful intercourse, bladder infections, forgetfulness, insomnia, headaches, and fatigue.
Emotional changes are rampant as well, such as irritability, depression, and mood swings. Women may not conceive if they have low estrogen levels.
How Does Bioidentical Estrogen Replacement Therapy Work?
Bioidentical estrogen replacement therapy involves administering supplemental doses containing the same chemical structures that are identical to the hormones produced by the body naturally. This can be done through a vaginal ring, estrogen patch, gel, or skin cream.
The hormone directly enters the bloodstream when administered through these forms without passing through the liver. However, estrogen in pill form can impair the liver when processed. Symptoms of low estrogen can be alleviated through hormone replacement therapy in women.
It can decrease severity and frequency of hot flashes, improve sleeping habits, get rid of mood swings, increase collagen levels in the skin, and reduce the risk of vaginal irritation. It can also prevent dental problems, like gum disease and tooth loss and slow down bone loss among other things.
