Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy Treatment
Menopause & Andropause
Everyon has heard of menopause. The time in the life for a woman when her ovaries are no longer producing hormones. People forget there is a "man"-opause too. Medically the decrease in male hormones is referred to as "andropause." The reason is that the male hormones related to sexual function as a group are called "androgens."
Menopause is often felt as an acute event associated with lack of a menstural cycle and hot flashes and night sweats. But that is simply when estrogen (Estradiol) hits rock bottom. Prior to this, progesterone levels decline (in the 40's) and testostorone declines (in the 30's). Both causing various symptoms.
Andropause is a different entity altogether. The decline in testosterone is more insidous and is not exclusively related to aging. Both the "average" testosterone level and "avergage" sperm counts have dropped dramatically since the 1940's. Numerous theories for this drop have included the rising rates of obesity; endocrine disruptors found in plastics (which increase estrogen), stress, and various prescription medications.
These affects can be reversed when hormone levels are restored to there optimal levels using safe, proven, bioidentical hormone replacement therapy.
