Hormone Replacement Services in Hyde Park Illinois

Estrogen Replacement Therapy

At Women’s Health Group Chicago, we strongly believe in providing comprehensive healthcare services tailored specifically for women. One of our core specialties is Estrogen Replacement Therapy (ERT). This therapy is perfect for women experiencing low estrogen levels due to health reasons such as menopause or ovary tumors. ERT can help alleviate symptoms like hot flushes, vaginal dryness, and mood swings, resulting in a significantly enhanced quality of life.

Progesterone Replacement Therapy

Another key area of expertise at the Women’s Health Group Chicago is Progesterone Replacement Therapy. If you’re grappling with uncomfortable symptoms like mood changes, insomnia and inconsistent menstrual cycles because of reduced progesterone levels-centered issues like perimenopause or PCOS, our experts stand ready to guide you on this therapeutic journey. Our team ensures that each patient follows safe and effective treatment protocols throughout their journey towards balanced hormone levels.

Combination Hormone Therapy

Hyde Park residents looking for holistic care solutions should consider Combination Hormone Therapy offered by us at Womens Health Group Chicago. This therapy involves replacing both the estrogen and progesterone hormones simultaneously to ease several discomforts associated with hormonal imbalances including night sweats, anxiety or depression, bone thinning (osteoporosis), among others. Each plan is customized individually based on your unique needs – ensuring optimal wellbeing holistically.

Bioidentical Hormone Replacement

We are proud to offer Bioidentical Hormone Replacement – pioneering science designed precisely to match your body’s molecular structure unlike traditional synthetic hormones largely used elsewhere. With minimized side effects compared to their synthetic counterparts these are an all-natural option making them the preferred course when it comes to managing various conditions associated with hormone imbalances from menopausal symptoms through PMS & more serious health concerns alike.

Monitoring and Managing Side Effects

While undergoing Hormone Replacement Therapies, ever-vigilant monitoring of potential side-effects is crucial which we at Womens Health Group Chicago are committed to. Our specialists understand that everyone’s body responds differently to treatments–whilst ensuring your safety & comfort throughout the therapy cycle by regularly scheduling check-ups; proactive adjustments where necessary will be made. With us you can rest assured in receiving personalized care aimed not just treating but also managing any foreseeable adverse reactions swiftly.

Alternative Therapies

Dr.Mike is amazing. He listens, has solutions and follows through. I travel over an hour to see him and I wouldn’t change it for anything.

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.
