Hormone Replacement: Relighting the Fire of Romance

“Youth is wasted on the young.” – George Bernard Shaw

Such a pity, isn’t it? Just when the kids are raised (or nearly so) and you’re free to kick up your heels and enjoy some ‘me’ time again, menopause arrives. The unrelenting torture of hot flashes, insomnia, crankiness, brain fog, weight gain and other ordeals make you wonder what you could possibly have done to deserve this. And then, to add insult to injury, your love life goes down the tubes. With a dry vagina and a Harpy attitude, passionate sex is the last thing on your mind. You thought PMS was bad? This is like PMS on steroids – except that’s the problem! You are missing some of your key hormones: estradiol, testosterone and progesterone. It’s no surprise that menopause is a time of life when many marriages end, family bonds become frayed and relationships dissolve.

What’s Going On!?

Like every woman who reaches menopause, your ovaries stop producing testosterone, estradiol and progesterone. This loss throws your body chemistry into chaos and takes your life quality on a roller coaster ride. Worst of all, things just don’t work the way they used to.

Perhaps one of the most common physical changes many women experience in perimenopause and the early stages of menopause is their vanishing libido. This directly relates to hormone loss. Estradiol, progesterone and testosterone are needed to help fuel your sex drive and passion. Estrogen is known to boost the desire for romance. It impacts your mood, your energy level and your need for connection. Testosterone also plays a key role in sexual desire and the estradiol/progesterone balance is vital to a woman’s overall sexual health.

Hormone Replacement to the Rescue!

The good news is this: your romantic life can easily flourish again with properly administered BHRT. Properly administered BHRT is the key phrase here. Your body needs more than simply a short term love potion to enhance your sex life (although it is wonderful to have that part of your life back again!).

You’re suffering from hormone depletion which wreaks havoc in every system, organ, gland and cell in your body. If you adopt a temporary fix like rubbing on creams or gels or receiving dangerous injections, you may be impacting your future health. Most methods, like pills, capsules and patches, must be used in a timely manner or you’re subject to peaks and valleys in hormone levels that can cause symptoms to reappear. Also of note—HRT methods that use the digestive track require high doses to achieve any therapeutic effects, something you want to avoid at all costs.

The only BHRT method shown to be extremely effective in providing steady, consistent hormonal balance is the pellet implant method. This therapy is based on low-dose bioidentical hormones that are readily metabolized and perform the same tasks as human hormones. Pellets slowly release physiologic amounts of hormone around-the-clock for months at a time, making it the safest method available when correctly administered and managed.

Not only can bioidentical pellet therapy light up your love life again, it can help support your overall health and well-being as you get older.
