This is the phase of a woman’s life where the hormones and body change and the stage where cessation of the ability to reproduce occurs. This can be a very upsetting time for some women. Both emotionally and physically, as the production of hormones decline substantially, often-times creating serious symptoms. These symptoms can range from: anxiety, depression, vaginal dryness, painful intercourse, breast tenderness, no libido, night sweats to hot flashes. Hormone levels must be tested in this phase of life for certain, especially if symptoms are present. Hormones and various herbal products have been shown to help drastically while decreasing chances of issues like female cancers and heart attacks. BHRT (Bio-identical hormone replacement therapy)can help normalize the body’s hormones during this phase. See: BHRT
