Struggling with Hot Flashes and Insomnia? Try Hormone Replacement Therapy

Struggling with Hot Flashes and Insomnia? Try Hormone Replacement Therapy

We like to poke fun at menopause, but the reality of this hormonal imbalance is no laughing matter. Around 85% of menopausal women report having symptoms like insomnia and hot flashes — many of them experience symptoms so severe they interfere with daily life. 

The Prime Choice Family Clinic & Urgent Care team in Frisco, Texas, knows how debilitating even a slight upset in your hormone levels can be, so we pride ourselves on offering the best women’s health treatment options. 

One of our most popular is hormone replacement therapy. Here’s a closer look. 

Why is menopause so uncomfortable?

Most women over 50 suffer from menopause symptoms — but why? Let’s look at the biochemistry inside your body, which plays a huge role in keeping you functioning properly. 

Your hormones are chemical messengers that travel around your bloodstream to instruct your tissues and organs. They facilitate almost every function in your body, from your metabolism to your cognitive ability. 

You have many different types of hormones, but we’re focusing on your female sex hormones: estrogen and progesterone. 

During your younger years, you (typically) have a perfect balance of female sex hormones. They guide puberty, fuel your sex drive, facilitate pregnancy, and more. Any variation in your otherwise steady hormone levels can wreak havoc on your body’s systems. 

As you reach the later stages of your life, your hormone levels inevitably start to dip, and a slew of uncomfortable symptoms follow. 

In addition to insomnia and hot flashes, you may also experience:

The decrease in your female sex hormones also affects your period until it eventually stops altogether, signaling the end of your reproductive years. 

Can hormone replacement therapy help me?

The short answer: Yes, hormone replacement therapy can help reverse and alleviate the effects of menopause (and other hormone imbalance-related issues). 

If you’ve reached menopause and are experiencing symptoms, we’d like to talk with you about your options. Before recommending treatment, we thoroughly review your symptoms, health history, and treatment goals. 

Hormone replacement therapy comes in a few different forms (patches, medication, implants, gels, and more), but they all work similarly. 

Through hormone replacement therapy, we can supply your body with the hormones it needs to restore balance. Over time, you feel fewer symptoms and return to a symptom-free life like before your hormones went haywire. 

We also walk you through some strategies to make life with menopause easier. This can include eating a healthy diet, exercising regularly, managing stress, and sleeping enough at night. 

Menopause can feel isolating, but it doesn’t have to be — not when you have access to the best hormone treatments available. When you’re ready to start feeling like yourself again, call 214-550-0911 or book an appointment online at Prime Choice Family Clinic & Urgent Care today.
