Understanding Menopause

Menopause signifies a significant phase in a woman’s life, marking the conclusion of her fertility and reproductive period. This biological event is a natural and universal experience for all women, symbolizing an important transition in their life stage.

Menopause typically occurs when a woman is in her 40s or 50s. This transition period is initiated when the ovaries gradually slow down the production of key reproductive hormones, namely estrogen, and progesterone. These hormones regulate menstruation and ovulation, and their declining levels trigger the onset of menopause.


The process leading to menopause is typically progressive and not an abrupt occurrence. During the years leading up to menopause, a woman may start to notice changes in her menstrual cycle. Eventually, the menstrual cycle ceases entirely. The definitive point of menopause is confirmed when a woman has gone through a continuous stretch of 12 months without experiencing a menstrual period.

It’s worth noting that while menopause is a natural part of aging, the experience can vary significantly among women. Menopause isn’t a medical condition to be cured, but a natural phase of life that can be managed effectively with the right support and care.

Treatment for Menopause: Exploring Bioidentical Hormone Therapy 

Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) is a type of therapy used to relieve the symptoms of hormonal imbalance. The term “bioidentical” implies that the hormones used in this therapy are chemically identical to those produced naturally in the human body. 

Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) for the treatment of menopause primarily uses the following hormones:

  • Estrogen: This is one of the primary female sex hormones. Duringhormones menopause, the body’s production of estrogen decreases, which can lead to many of the symptoms associated with this transition, such as hot flashes, mood changes, and vaginal dryness. In BHRT, bioidentical estrogen is used to replace the naturally declining levels and alleviate these symptoms.
  • Progesterone: Progesterone is another hormone that declines during menopause. Restoring progesterone levels can help to balance the effects of estrogen and can also relieve menopausal symptoms.
  • Testosterone: While primarily known as a male hormone, women also produce testosterone in smaller amounts. During menopause, testosterone levels can drop, leading to symptoms such as decreased libido and fatigue. Some forms of BHRT include testosterone to address these symptoms.

The specific mix of hormones used in BHRT can vary from person to person, depending on their specific symptoms, overall health, and hormone levels. 

Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) can be administered in various forms, such as pills, patches, gels, creams, and pellets. Each form has its advantages and potential drawbacks. At Herzog Vitality Center, our team of doctors can work with each patient to determine the most suitable form of BHRT based on their needs and lifestyle.
