Loss of sexual desire is a frequent complaint of perimenopausal, menopausal, or postmenopausal women. Beginning in perimenopause, a woman’s hormone levels begin to drop, which may affect her sex drive.
Hormone replacement therapy for women is a safe and effective way to treat low sex drive and help increase libido. Our experts administer and monitor personalized treatment plans that address the needs of each woman.
If a hormonal imbalance is causing your low sex drive, hormone replacement therapy may be the solution for you. Global Life Rejuvenation physicians have successfully used HRT to help increase libido in women. Contact us to meet a physician and get started today.
The Role of Hormones in Low Libido During Menopause
The main hormones associated with low libido in women are progesterone, testosterone and estrogen.
Production of progesterone decreases during perimenopause, which can cause low libido in women. Other consequences of low progesterone include weight gain, mood swings, and chronic fatigue. Additionally, lower levels of estrogen during menopause often causes vaginal dryness, vaginal atrophy (a loss of muscle tension) and decreased clitoral sensitivity.
While testosterone is usually considered a male hormone, it also contributes to important health and regulatory functions in women. Testosterone in women serves to heighten the sexual response as well as enhance sexual pleasure and orgasms. As a result, low testosterone is often associated with low sex drive in women going through menopause. When the ovaries are unable to produce sufficient levels of testosterone, whether caused by hormonal imbalance or hysterectomy, this can result in low sex drive in women.
Hormone Replacement Therapy for Low Sex Drive
Hormone stability is imperative to maintaining a healthy sex drive. Hormone replacement therapy (HRT), often including testosterone for women, finds the hormone balance that your body needs and aims to restore the hormonal state that was altered by menopause or a hysterectomy procedure.
At Global Life Rejuvenation, we understand that each patient’s situation is unique. We provide holistic treatments in order to increase libido in women. These treatments utilize HRT in conjunction with proper nutrition, supplement and fitness plans that amplify the effects of hormone replacement therapy. Balancing a woman’s hormone levels helps her feel better and regain her sex drive.
Is HRT for Women Safe?
It’s important to remember that even though it’s called hormone replacement therapy, the goal of this treatment is not to replace someone’s hormone level to once had. Our process is to give a very small amount of hormones to supplement or to help your body naturally produce hormones that it no longer makes as a result of aging. By doing this, we alleviate symptoms associated with hormone imbalance and help you feel better.
HRT is completely safe when taken under the guidance of an expert practitioner. Among women, HRT has been proven to prevent heart disease and osteoporosis as well as lower the risk of developing diabetes. We don’t want women to suffer from lack of sexual interest when there’s a much better option available.
