Menopause Q & A

What happens during menopause?

Menopause is the period of a woman’s life where her body stops producing and releasing functional eggs. The woman’s body goes through significant hormonal changes during this time which can result in some uncomfortable and disruptive symptoms. Each woman has a unique experience during menopause but symptoms tend to include issues like extreme mood swings, anxiety, irritability, hot flashes, night sweats, vaginal dryness and atrophy, and a loss of sexual appetite. The doctors at UroGyn Specialists of Florida help their patients manage their symptoms during this period of hormonal change to enable them to live full and active lives.

How do the doctors at UroGyn Specialists of Florida treat menopause symptoms?

The doctors at UroGyn Specialists of Florida offer testosterone pellet therapy to their patients who are suffering from disruptive menopausal symptoms. Testosterone pellets are a form of hormone replacement therapy. Hormone replacement therapy provides the patient with synthetic versions of the hormones that are no longer being produced at the same levels by the body to alleviate some of the symptoms associated with hormonal change. Testosterone pellets are small pellets of synthetic hormones that are inserted into the patient’s body, typically in the upper buttock area, that slowly release hormones to regulate the symptoms.

What are the benefits of testosterone pellet therapy for menopause?

Testosterone pellets offer a slow release of hormones that last for 3-4 months. Most patients begin to experience relief within 24-48 hours after the pellet is inserted. Some other hormone therapies that are applied with pills or creams can cause spikes and fluctuations in hormone levels which can cause unwanted side effects.

I’ve heard that hormone therapy is dangerous, is this true?

The doctors at UroGyn Specialists of Florida provide comprehensive exams and assessments for their patients to determine the best and safest treatments to manage menopausal symptoms. Since each woman experiences different combinations of symptoms to varying degrees, treatment is customized to address the specific concerns of the individual. The doctors find that many of their patients respond well to testosterone pellet therapy, but will provide alternative treatments if the patient would be better off with different treatments. The doctors at UroGyn Specialists of Florida want their patients to live healthy and active lives and provide treatment and advice to support each patient toward that goal. If you have questions or concerns about your menopausal symptoms, make an appointment to talk to one of the doctors at UroGyn Specialists of Florida. There’s no need to suffer through treatable symptoms and conditions.
