Hormones Change As Women Age

Female hormones start to decline around the age of 35. As this happens, the fat storing hormone (estrogen) becomes elevated. Women start to experience symptoms like: increased abdominal fat, “hard to lose weight”, decreased energy and decreased libido. As they enter their 40’s and 50’s, symptoms increase and can include memory loss, night sweats and osteoporosis.

 

Hormone therapy works exceedingly well for many women and most hormone imbalances can be improved. Stop suffering and get your life back!

 

Hormones play a vital role in every woman’s health and well-being. Hormones work together like a symphony; imbalance of one hormone leads to imbalance of the other hormones. This imbalance causes many unpleasant symptoms and can possibly increase the risk of health problems such as osteoporosis and heart disease.

Typical Hormone Imbalances that women experience:

 

  • Progesterone deficiency or excess

  • Estrogen deficiency or excess

  • Testosterone deficiency or excess

  • Thyroid deficiency (hypothyroidism) or excess (hyperthyroidism)

  • Cortisol deficiency (adrenal fatigue) or excess

  • Growth hormone deficiency

  • DHEA deficiency

 

Age related hormone decline and hormone imbalance is a natural process which eventually occurs in all humans. Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy is a safe and effective treatment for hormone imbalance and can have you feeling and looking like you did in your 20’s and 30’s!

 

 

 

 

FEMALE SEXUAL DYSFUNCTION

 

40 million women in the United States have some form of female sexual dysfunction, which includes:

  • Low sexual desire (low libido)

  • Sexual arousal disorder

  • Difficulty attaining orgasm or no orgasm

  • Sexual pain disorder

 

Several key hormones contribute to proper female sexual function:

  • Oxytocin

  • Estrogen

  • Testosterone

 

Oxytocin:

  • Treatment with oxytocin can generate intense sexual desire in women

  • Is made directly in the brain

  • Its levels correlate with orgasmic intensity

    • Leads to increased blood flow to not only sexual organs but all peripheral structures in the body, thus providing warmth and increased sensitivity to skin and sensory organs

    • Is strongly linked to emotions of love, desire, and cuddling

    • Can be stimulated by touch, hugging, and massage

    • Is very active in the part of the brain that is believed to be the epicenter of orgasm

 

Sexual signs and symptoms of oxytocin insufficiency include:

- Decreased vaginal lubrication

- Absent or very brief orgasms that last no more than seconds

- Prolonged time to reach orgasm

- Decreased desire for intimacy

- Decreased interest in sex

 

Other clinical signs and symptoms of low oxytocin levels:

- Anxiety and nervousness

- Unfriendliness and isolation

- Increased sensitivity to pain

- Minimal eye contact during social interactions

- Decreased interest in social interaction

 

Estrogen is responsible for:

  • Maintaining appropriate vaginal lubrication in response to arousal

  • Tone of local musculature

  • Contributes to the increase in blood flow to the vaginal area during arousal and orgasm

 

Testosterone is mainly linked to:

  • Libido and desire

  • Sexual thoughts and fantasies

 

Combining bio-identical estrogen and/or testosterone/DHEA replacement with oxytocin nasal spray therapy is an effective treatment for sexual dysfunction in menopause and beyond. In younger women that currently have adequate estrogen but experience sexual dysfunction, testosterone and/or DHEA therapy can be added to the oxytocin spray. Other therapies may involve application of creams with ingredients aimed at increasing vaginal blood flow and sensitivity of the organs.
