Hormone Replacement Services in Hegewisch Illinois

Estrogen Replacement Therapy

At Womens Health Group Chicago, we are highly experienced in Estrogen Replacement Therapy which is designed for women who may be suffering from a decrease in their estrogen levels due to various reasons like menopause, removal of ovaries or certain medical conditions. This therapy can help alleviate symptoms such as hot flashes, difficulty sleeping, and mood swings. Our specialists ensure that this treatment plan is curated individually taking into consideration your specific health history and lifestyle.

Progesterone Replacement Therapy

If you’re experiencing symptoms related to progesterone insufficiency such as irregular menstrual cycles, insomnia or weight gain; Progesterone Replacement Therapy might be the solution for you. At Womens Health Group Chicago, our professional OBGYNs carefully assess each patient’s needs based on their hormonal profile to develop personalized plans for dealing with hormone imbalances.

Combination Hormone Therapy

Our Combination Hormone therapy provides an encompassing relief from multiple issues associated with hormonal imbalance by administering non-identical hormones together. We specialize in tailoring combination therapies that suit each woman’s unique physiology while considering her individual needs and priorities simultaneously. For those Hegewisch residents who wish to effectively address postmenopausal syndrome or other hormone-related medical conditions, Combination Hormone therapy could offer significant benefits.

Bioidentical Hormone Replacement

We also offer Bioidentical Hormone Replacement at our clinic which involves providing hormones that are identical on a molecular level to the naturally occurring ones in a woman’s body. Studies have shown they could provide better results when compared to traditional synthetic hormones replacement techniques because bioidenticals closely mimic what your body produces naturally ensuring minimal side effects while maximizing healing potential.

Monitoring and Managing Side Effects

Every woman responds differently to hormone replacement therapies; thus patients’ wellness and side effects are continuously monitored at Womens Health Group Chicago. We adopt advanced research methodologies to track each patient’s progress and fine-tune the therapeutic protocol, thus ensuring improved results while diligently managing potential side effects.

Alternative Therapies

Recognizing that every woman is unique and may respond differently to various treatments, we also offer alternative therapies for those seeking a more natural approach to hormonal wellbeing. From lifestyle modifications, dietary changes to holistic practices like acupuncture or yoga; these options can supplement hormone replacement therapy or serve as effective standalone treatments. Our Hegewisch patients receive personalized counseling on which alternatives could complement their health journey best.

I've been coming to Dr. Awad and Dr. Mike for over 30 years. Never had a bad experience and actually look forward to chatting with them both. I was a little sad and nervous when I was told Dr. Mike was unavailable today (delivering babies!) so I saw Dr. Lexi. I should have known Dr. Mike would only hire the best to work with him. Dr. Lexi was kind and knowledgeable. She asked all the right questions and was very gentle. Great staff as well.
