Hormone Deficiency Treatments in Fort Worth
Do you wonder if you suffer from hormone deficiencies? Have you been meaning to come in and get your hormones checked? If you have symptoms of vaginal dryness (due to vulvovaginal atrophy) and/or painful sexual activity, you probably are suffering from estrogen, progesterone, and/or androgen deficiency.
Over 30 million postmenopausal women alone suffer from hormone deficiencies and their painful symptoms. There are just a few symptoms of hormone deficiency, which can occur either before or after a woman experiences menopause.
Causes of Hormone Deficiency
Hormone deficiency can be caused by both natural aging or surgically induced menopause, but you don’t have to continue to tolerate these symptoms.
Treatment Options from Dr. Quist
We have many treatment options, and sometimes you need more than one treatment at the same time in order to properly address your hormone deficiency symptoms. Unlike hot flashes that tend to resolve over time, vulvovaginal atrophy (VVA) tends to get worse over time without treatment. This condition can lead to other problems like frequent UTIs.
There is no reason to be embarrassed to talk with your gynecologist about these painful symptoms of hormone deficiency, or to be afraid of therapy. VVA is a very common condition that is absolutely treatable with simple and painless hormone therapy procedures.
The standard treatment tends to be estrogen therapy, but new oral and vaginal therapies have recently become available that are not like traditional estrogen therapy. Our newest option is the Juliet laser treatment.
Juliet is a cutting-edge Erbium:YAG laser treatment by Asclepion that is a fast, painless, and hormone-free solution for your painful hormone deficiency symptoms. This treatment option has already changed the life of thousands of women around the world, and it could change your life too!
The Juliet laser can improve many unpleasant hormone deficiency symptoms such as genital itching, irritation, poor vaginal lubrication, vaginal dryness and even pain during intercourse (dyspareunia). It is used in many countries around the world and now we can offer it here in our office!
