Aug 25, 2022 | Hormones, Women's Health

There is a great deal of misinformation about menopause that has been passed from generation to generation. Menopause is a natural process that happens to all women, yet there is still a great deal of mystery surrounding it. It causes many symptoms and can be very daunting, but there is menopause therapy in Green Bay that can help and make the experience much more bearable.

Here are five myths about menopause and the truth behind them:

Onset of Menopause

While the average age of menopause is 51, it frequently begins between 40 and 45. This is referred to as premature menopause. It can be misdiagnosed with aching joints thought to be rheumatoid issues, palpitations as cardiac issues, or issues such as anxiety or depression. Not all symptoms are present at this point. Your Nurse Practitioner should ask questions about any early menopausal symptoms in your family history.

You have to just deal with it

Bioidentical Hormone replacement therapy helps naturally balance hormone levels to alleviate symptoms of hormonal imbalance and can help with a wide variety of daily issues such as sleep, anxiety, mood, energy, libido and more. You don’t have to just power through the unpleasant symptoms of menopause.

Weigh Gain with Menopause is inevitable

Lower levels of estrogen result in insulin resistance. That means that carbohydrates are not metabolized and can result in weight gain. Reasonable exercise, diet control and balancing hormone levels with Bioidentical hormones can help considerably.

Bladder issues are here to stay

The estrogen drop affects a woman’s urogenital area, but it is frequently resolved using low-dose topical estrogen. If this is unsuccessful, schedule a visit with a Nurse Practitioner to discuss other possibilities.

Libido is Gone for good

Let’s face it, most of us understand with menopause and the loss of testosterone, your libido starts to disappear, but it’s not gone for good! By replacing testosterone levels safely, you can restore the body’s balance to proper levels that control libido.
