A shift in your reproductive hormones is to be expected as you approach middle age. It happens to everyone. However, how dramatic that drop in hormone levels is can make a major difference in how it affects you. You may know some people who seem to breeze through this phase of life. Unfortunately, you are not one of them. As you have transitioned into your 40s, you have experienced many troubling symptoms that make you feel like you are on a roller coaster ride. You just want to feel like yourself again. Hormone replacement therapy could help you to reclaim your well-being.
Understanding Your Symptoms
If you are battling exhaustion all the time, your hormones could be to blame. They may make it difficult for you to sleep as well. A drop in your reproductive hormones can explain your moodiness and your lack of sexual libido. It can lead to weight gain as your metabolism puts on the breaks. These are typical symptoms of a considerable drop in reproductive hormones. These symptoms are experienced by men and women. Hormone replacement therapy is intended to remedy the source of your troubles to help you feel like yourself again.
Are You a Good Candidate for This Treatment?
While you may suspect your hormones are to blame for your symptoms, only a medical professional can confirm what is happening in your body. They can ask questions to pinpoint the source of your symptoms. A physical evaluation will provide some pieces of the puzzle. A blood test will give the most definitive information. If your reproductive hormones are low, it will show up in your blood.
