Hormone Replacement Therapy in Sewell and Voorhees

Hormones for Women

Menopause: Defined as the time of a woman’s life when she has been without a menstrual flow for 1 year. In medical terms, it is also the time when the follicle stimulating hormone (FSH) level is above 25 mIU/ml and stays there, regardless of a woman’s cycle or whether she has a period. This time usually occurs between the ages of 47  and 55; however, other reasons for an early menopause can be premature ovarian failure (POF) and/or a surgical menopause.

Peri-Menopause: Defined as the time preceding menopause, which some call the transition phase, and can last anywhere from 1 to 10 years. During this time in one’s life, hormones fluctuate, causing the unwanted symptoms of hot flashes, vaginal dryness, loss of memory, depression, and decreased libido. In other words, you don’t have to be in true menopause to be having menopausal symptoms, and everyone’s symptom complex may be different.

Here at Re-Vita’ Life we design our replacement therapy with bio-identical hormones to meet your individual needs. The dose is calculated based on your labs, height, weight, and age. We give you back the precise physiologic dosage your body is accustomed to. This therapy can prove extremely effective throughout any and all stages of your life.

In the pre-menopause stage, hormone replacement can help with menstrual migraines, post-partum depression, and even premenstrual syndrome.

Hormones for Men

Andropause is the medical term for the male equivalent of female menopause. Between the ages of 40 and 55, testosterone levels begin to drop signaling the onset of andropause. This drop is often referred to as having Low T. Low testosterone is the result of decreased production of hormone by the testes.

Men are often told by their physicians that their feelings of tiredness, inability to gain muscle mass, lose fat, decreased libido, and foggy thinking are all just part of growing older. They are often told to deal with their symptoms or are given inappropriate synthetic drugs to help them cope.

Accepting these symptoms or treating them with conventional medical means can leave many men with the inability to perform well at work or in their personal relationships. They can lose their sense of well-being, which can have a dramatic negative effect on their overall ability to enjoy life.

All men will experience a gradual decline in hormone production as they get older. Beginning at age 33 to 35, a man’s body makes less usable testosterone with 1-3% being lost on an annual basis. Once a man reaches the ages of 45 to 55, he will feel the effects of that decline.

Here at Re-Vita’ Life our goal is to enhance your overall well-being by putting your hormones back into balance. Hormones are the driving force of what we are; they control every organ system and every bodily function. When hormones are optimum, as in the levels of a 30 year old, a man will think, function and feel like his younger self in every aspect of life. Our treatment optimizes your hormones to meet your individual and personal needs.
