Hormone TherapyRockwall, TX
While people may understand that hormones can influence growth, mood and multiple other factors of the body, they may not realize the full extent of their capabilities. People can experience uncomfortable and painful symptoms without the proper amount of certain hormones in the body. Women going through menopause will experience fluctuating levels of hormones. Hormone treatment for menopause involves providing concentrated amounts of certain hormones the patient is lacking to help relieve symptoms of menopause.
Hormone therapy is offered at Glow Obstetrics & Gynecology in Rockwall and the surrounding area. Even though menopause is an inevitable part of the aging process for women, they do not have to struggle with the worst of the symptoms. We can use hormone therapy to provide relief for the patient’s overall health and well-being.

Benefits of hormone therapy
Store-bought medications and treatments may provide temporary relief for some of the symptoms of menopause but will not be enough for lasting relief. With hormone therapy, Dr. Theresa M Conyac, MD FACOG can help our patients receive treatment that targets the source of the symptoms. Menopause is a condition that women experience around the time they stop menstruating, which is a sign the ovaries no longer release an egg each month.
This can result in hormonal changes that affect multiple aspects of the body. With professional hormone therapy, we can help patients find relief for specific symptoms through customized treatment. A few of the benefits of hormone therapy include:
Since each patient is unique, the severity of the symptoms will vary per patient. However, the symptoms a woman experiences can be much worse than the general forms of the symptoms that people experience on a daily basis. Patients who are healthy but struggle with menopause can benefit from seeking this treatment over other options.
In some cases, hormone therapy can help prevent certain conditions such as osteoporosis and heart disease that can occur in women who experience early menopause. Women who also have their ovaries removed need to consider this treatment.
Symptoms of menopause
Some patients may be prepared from menopause and know it is coming while other patients may be caught off guard. In some cases, menopause can occur in women before they reach their 40s in a condition known as perimenopause. Signs and symptoms that menopause has started include:
It is important to note that some patients may not experience all of these symptoms. Other patients may experience an extreme case of only one or two symptoms. Depending on the patient’s needs, we can customize a treatment plan that works best for them.
Hormone therapy treatment
With hormone therapy, we will need to review the patient’s medical history and current condition. By doing this, we can determine that hormone therapy does not negatively interact with other treatments the patient is receiving. We will also need to review any allergies the patient has and any menopause symptoms the patient is experiencing.
With this information, we can customize the treatment and build a treatment plan. There are also various forms of hormone therapy with a pill, skin patch, gel or topical cream. These are common options for systemic hormone therapy, which involve administering estrogen to the body. The patient will continue to use this treatment in response to the menopause symptoms.
If the patient notices specific changes or other issues during treatment, then they need to contact us as soon as possible. We can alter the treatment when necessary throughout the process.
