Menopause begins when a woman’s ovaries begin producing less estrogen. It is a gradual process for most women and the entire process may take several years. Many women going through menopause suffer from a wide range of symptoms including irregular bleeding, hot flashes, insomnia, night sweats, fatigue, and depression.
There are several treatment options available, both hormonal and non-hormonal to help relieve the symptoms and conditions of menopause. Dr. Erhard examines and treats each patient specifically to their symptoms in order to find the best treatment option. Complete hormone levels can be assessed either with serum (blood) test or salivary testing. From the results of each test Dr. Erhard can find the right balance to treat each patient to their specific need. Bio-identical hormones are specifically compounded to the exact dose a patient needs and are made in a manner that is exactly as the patient’s body makes them.
