Women’s Health Q & A

What is meant by the term “women’s health?”

As a woman, your body goes through a range of shifts and changes as you move through the phases of life. Pregnancy and childbirth can take a toll, but even women who don’t choose motherhood will notice changes related to normal hormonal shifts.

Women’s health usually refers to changes brought on by hormonal imbalances. These natural shifts occur during puberty, pregnancy, menopause, and as a result of certain gynecologic conditions. 

Women also encounter certain health conditions at high rates. These include osteoarthritis, stroke, and Alzheimer’s disease. Your RegenMed Health Centers practitioner can help you embark on lifestyle modifications to reduce your risk of these and many other health problems.  

What are some common women’s health concerns?

Some of the more common women’s health conditions that prompt women to reach out for care include:

  • Reduced sex drive
  • Vaginal dryness
  • Pain during sex
  • Weight gain
  • Headaches
  • Hot flashes
  • Night sweats

If you notice these changes, call RegenMed Health Centers to schedule a consultation. 

What kinds of treatments can help relieve women’s health issues?

Reduced hormone production is the primary cause of women’s health concerns. That’s why hormone replacement therapy (HRT) is the most common treatment approach. 

HRT is a highly personalized process that strives to rebalance your hormones by incorporating supplemental synthetic hormones into your system. This dramatically reduces symptoms linked to declining or fluctuating hormone production. 

The process begins with lab testing to better understand how your body produces hormones. Your practitioner takes this information, in combination with the input you provide about your symptoms, and creates a unique HRT approach designed just for you. 

It can take several months to see the full effects of HRT, but you’ll have the guidance and support of the RegenMed team as you move through the process. Be sure to keep track of changes as they occur, and let your practitioner know so they can tweak your therapy as needed.
