Dramatic hormonal changes occur as women transition through perimenopause, menopause, and postmenopausal stages. Women will experience night sweats, hot flashes, vaginal dryness, difficulty with sleep, vaginal atrophy (thinning vaginal tissue), mood changes, trouble concentrating, brain fog, and low libido (lack of sexual desire). This can last for years and begin as early as the mid-30’s or as late as the mid-50’s. Most women will experience a progression of symptoms for many years.
Perimenopause begins approximately ten years before menopause usually around age 40. The ovaries begin producing less estrogen as a natural progression towards menopause during which time your ovaries will no longer release eggs. Declining estrogen levels cause hormonal changes leading to uncomfortable physical symptoms and increasing a woman’s risk for health conditions such as heart disease and osteoporosis. Women entering perimenopause may notice signs such as irregular or skipped periods, worsening moods, breast tenderness, and heavier (or lighter) periods.
Women going through surgical menopause will also suffer from the above symptoms. Surgical menopause develops when women have oophorectomies (surgical removal of ovaries) which are often combined with hysterectomies (surgical removal of the uterus). The abrupt drop in estrogen leads to severe menopausal symptoms.
Hormone replacement therapy can provide relief of these symptoms and help you to regain your quality of life.
Apex Hormone Health has a variety of options for different types of hormonal imbalances. Our customized medical plans will provide relief from your symptoms as we work to resolve the root cause.
Hormone replacement treatments can include bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) (hormone pellets implanted subcutaneously), creams, oral medications, and/ or thyroid medications.

The thyroid gland regulates your bodies metabolic processes controlling functions such as metabolism, protein synthesis, temperature, energy, blood flow, tissue development, repair, digestion, and hormone excretion. Issues affecting the function, or the structure of the thyroid gland leads to thyroid symptoms.
Hypothyroidism occurs when the body does not create and release enough thyroid hormone. When your thyroid hormones are not optimal you may experience symptoms of hypothyroidism (low thyroid production) including, but not limited to the following:
It is not uncommon for thyroid issues to appear around menopause. The declining levels of testosterone and estradiol from the ovaries at menopause can influence the thyroid gland. Thyroid disease (hypo- or hyperthyroid) in women can contribute to vaginal dryness causing irritation and friction leading to painful sex.
Hypothyroid and subclinical hypothyroid can cause erectile dysfunction and low testosterone in men.
Symptoms of hypothyroid such as depression, fatigue, and low libido affect both men and women’s sexual health. Fortunately, most sexual health issues for both men and women can be resolved by treating the thyroid disorder.
A blood test checking the different types of thyroid hormones will be used to determine whether you need thyroid replacement therapy.
Prices vary and will be discussed during your visit.
Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) is a natural treatment for men and women suffering from hormone imbalance.
Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy uses bioidentical hormones which are chemically identical to the hormones naturally present in our bodies. Since hormones for BHRT are biologically identical to the hormones our bodies make, they are more easily absorbed. Our bodies use these in the same way as it uses our own hormones. Bioidentical hormones come in different forms including creams, gels, pills, and pellets and are custom made specific to each patient’s unique needs at compounding pharmacies.
Hormonal imbalances can cause serious effects to your body and health. As we age, our bodies become less efficient and hormone deficiencies jeopardize our overall health and wellness. While men and women will suffer from many of the same symptoms, some of the symptoms will be specific to men and women. If you suffer from hormone imbalances, your symptoms might include:
Both men and women can benefit from treatment with BHRT. Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) is a natural way to help you to maintain your health, lifestyle, and overall wellness. Some of the benefits you may experience when optimizing your hormones with BHRT include:
If you are experiencing one or more of the symptoms mentioned due to age related hormone imbalance, you may be a candidate for BHRT.
Getting started is as simple as making an appointment. A comprehensive consultation and full lab panel will determine whether you are a candidate for bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT). A customized hormone replacement therapy plan will then be created to meet your specific individual needs. After treatment, your hormone levels and symptoms are monitored to ensure safe restoration of hormone levels with bioidentical hormone replacement therapy.
