During menopause, many women experience sleep issues, weight gain, fatigue, anxiety, and low sex drive. At MedSomma, we have developed a protocol that can help address these conditions by restoring hormone levels that have become depleted or imbalanced due to menopause. By thoroughly evaluating overall hormone function, a provider can assess the source of hormone imbalance or deficiency—essential information to know before making any recommendation.
PMS and Estrogen Dominance
Pre-Menstrual Syndrome (PMS), or estrogen dominance, is a separate condition that afflicts millions of women, but is typically viewed as normal. Estrogen dominance occurs when there is more estrogen in relation to progesterone at certain stages of the menstrual cycle. A hormone imbalance can be caused by high insulin levels, inflammation, diet, and excess body fat can contribute to estrogen levels regardless of what the ovaries produce. MedSomma providers may address estrogen dominance through bioidentical hormones, liver support, and weight loss techniques.
