As you get older, you expect your body to go through changes. You know there are going to be gray hairs creeping in. Wrinkles are to be expected. You might be a little softer around the edges than you used to be. These are all changes on the outside. There is more going on behind the scenes that could be turning your world upside down. You could be dealing with hormonal fluctuations that can make you feel miserable. If you are being troubled by symptoms that you don’t understand as you age, hormone replacement therapy in Arizona could be the solution for you.
How Do You Know if You’re Experiencing Hormonal Changes?
Hormonal changes are common for men and women of a certain age, although symptoms can be more pronounced for women. As your reproductive system gradually slows down, reproductive hormones begin to decrease. For women, estrogen and progesterone are the main concern. For men, testosterone may begin to drop. This decrease in hormones can be so slight and gradual that it isn’t even noticed. However, the drop can be extreme, causing symptoms such as:
- Night sweats
- Hot flashes
- Weight gain
- Loss of strength and stamina
- Loss of libido
If you are experiencing these symptoms and you have no other underlying conditions that could be to blame, you could find relief with hormone replacement therapy.
