My Old Self Again

Home / Bioidentical Hormone Therapy / My Old Self Again

As Margaret sat in my office she looked very depressed and as she began to speak it became obvious why. She started by saying, “I think that 2 years into menopause.. hot flashes have decreased a bit. I am having depression I have vaginal dryness. Sexual intercourse is not possible now and I have no desire. All I want to do is stay in bed and watch TV. I think about death all the time – on a daily basis. Have had these thoughts for a month. -I do not want to do anything. I have no interest in life. My energy is very low.”

Some women, when the female hormones levels drop around the age of 50, can experience the debilitating symptoms that Margaret felt. The most effective way of treating these symptoms is to start bio-identical hormone replacement therapy. In Margaret’s case I started her on Estradiol, Progesterone, DHEA and Testosterone. After just two months of treatment all her symptoms went a way. Margaret commented as she was leaving my office, ” I am so glad that I found those hormones, I am my old self again!”
