What is menopause treatment?
Menopause treatment is available through our women's healthcare at the Health Services of North Texas (HSNT) in Denton, TX. We are now accepting new patients in our Denton South office for women experiencing the signs of menopause. We have dedicated menopause treatment and alternative therapy options for women over the age of 40 or who have had a hormone and/or gynecological issues (with or without a hysterectomy). In a private treatment room, you can expect to have a discreet discussion about your feminine health history, medical issues, and family medical history. For this initial appointment, we may request a pregnancy test, information on your last several periods for trends in irregularity, a blood hormone test, and any other testing that we think may be appropriate for your care.
Women in menopause experience lower levels of the hormones (like estrogen) that can cause one or many symptoms to arise. Our job at HSNT is to help you manage your symptoms through menopause as effectively as we can. Generally, we can make lifestyle and nutrition change recommendations, but we do have alternative therapies with hormone replacement. The severity of your symptoms will not matter when it comes to receiving care. Contact our women's healthcare team in Denton, TX to begin menopause treatment today.
"Absolutely the best experience! From start to finish. The peds care about my baby and sonja is the best! She explains everything and helps me to understand everything!"- K.M. / Google / Aug 06, 2021
"Wasn't a fan of the pushiness / complete disregard for our family history of serious injury post-shots. The pediatrician completely ignored and invalidated our concerns and the needs for our kid, but had plenty to say about getting shots despite our pending exemption,obvious outspoken position, and family history of reactions. Also, pretty much held a referral over our head because we disagreed. Biased, doubtful and eager to push us in a direction we AREN'T going. Sorry, doc. You're not going to change the minds of families who have seen what a real debilitating reaction looks like and have been paying medical / therapy / child-care bills out of pocket for years due to liability-free products y'all thrust on us. In Fact, I'd give everything in my possession to take away all the shots my daughter received. Parents (and pediatricians) please check out Learntherisk (dot) org if you want to look at risks beyond a watered down profit-motivated pamphlet you're given in a lobby. Clean facility, fast appointment, responsive, but long wait time. Also, went to a different practice the same week for a check up. They completely respected our decisions, didn't fight us on our position once, or bring it up for that matter, and genuinely helped with our needs, concerns and took the referral we needed seriously. Keep shopping if you don't trust your gut, parents. Personally I can't trust a doc that invalidates our experiences and ignores our concerns."- S.D. / Google / Jul 31, 2021

Symptoms of Menopause
Menopause can look and feel differently for each woman. As a woman's body naturally ages, hormone levels begin to decline. Some of the symptoms associated with perimenopause and menopause are:
- Vaginal itchiness and dryness
- Changes in menstrual period
- Rapid changes in body temperature
- Night sweats
- Problems sleeping/insomnia
- Irregular periods
- Hair loss
- Skin irregularities
- Unexplained weight gain or loss
- Changes in eating habits
- Low energy
- Poor mood
- Libido is lower than normal
- Painful sexual intercourse
There are many symptoms of menopause, and you may experience one or all of them. Please reach out to a trusted physician to help manage your transition through menopause. There are interventions we can try to make this time of "the change" be more comfortable.
Our Menopause treatment options
Our women's healthcare team offers women with menopause testing and treatment with alternative therapies at HSNT. Your provider may recommend a bioidentical hormone replacement treatment through a hormone pill, patch, topical cream or gel, injections, vaginal suppository, or pellet therapy. This means that the hormones you receive may be synthetic but will act as your natural hormones would in your body. Using your blood work, your provider can set your dosage explicitly to what you need.
Depending on the treatment option that you have decided to try, you may need to come in for follow-up visits to make sure your dosage is appropriate. Balancing your hormones can require several blood tests throughout treatment. We can monitor your progress through your hormone levels to see if medication needs an adjustment from being too low or too high. These follow-up appointments can be your time to ask questions, voice your concerns about treatment, or just have a conversation about how you feel with hormonal treatments. If you feel it is not working for you, please let us know how we can make your transition through menopause better.
For Guidance Through Menopause
If you are experiencing the first signs of menopause or have tried managing symptoms without the help of a doctor, please call HSNT for women's healthcare in North Texas. Because your body is transitioning to producing and using fewer hormones, it can be a very uncomfortable time period as a woman. Our practitioners can provide you with guidance, hormone testing, and alternative therapies to find you some relief during menopause.
