Menopause Hormone Therapy in Norman, OK
Menopause occurs naturally in women, usually beginning in the late 40s and early 50s, when the ovaries stop producing (or greatly reduce the production of) the hormones estrogen and progesterone. The onset of menopause marks the end of her child-bearing years, and often comes with a variety of physically and psychologically challenging symptoms as well.
Some women find themselves struggling with hot flashes, weight fluctuation, and feelings of anxiety that sometimes result from menopause. But because these and other symptoms are present in many different medical conditions, women and their doctors often have difficulty pinpointing the cause, and that leads to more discomfort, more doctor visits, and reduced quality of life.
