Hormone Replacement in Morton Grove

Hormone Replacement Services in Morton Grove Illinois

Estrogen Replacement Therapy

At Womens Health Group Chicago, we understand the distress that can come with menopause and other conditions that cause estrogen deficiency. To address these issues, we offer Estrogen Replacement Therapy (ERT). This treatment replenishes diminished estrogen levels to help manage symptoms like hot flashes, night sweats, mood swings or vaginal dryness. As a leading specialty clinic serving Morton Grove residents, our highly trained clinicians employ modern science along with compassionate care in hormone therapy.

Progesterone Replacement Therapy

Sometimes hormonal imbalances are not only about reduced estrogen levels. Many women also experience declining progesterone quantities leading to uncomfortable complications such as irregular menstrual intervals or even trouble conceiving. At Womens Health Group Chicago, we offer Progesterone Replacement Therapy specifically designed for these challenges. Our proficient physicians ensure individualized treatments tailored to each woman’s unique physiology and lifestyle requirements.

Combination Hormone Therapy

In some instances, balancing multiple hormones is key to achieving optimal health outcomes. That’s why at Women’s Health Group Chicago; we provide Combination Hormone Therapy where both estrogen and progesterone are supplemented concurrently. This approach often achieves better results by combining strengths of both therapies while neutralizing potential side effects of a single hormone overexposure—providing overall balanced well-being for our patients around Morton Grove area.

Bioidentical Hormone Replacement

Understanding that not all women respond similarly to traditional hormone options forms part of our holistic outlook at Womens Health Group Chicago which has led us to embrace Bioidentical Hormone Replacement (BHRT). BHRT uses natural hormones that have an identical chemical structure as human-made ones ensuring minimal side effects while synergizing flawlessly within your body system allowing you to achieve optimal hormonal equilibrium.

Monitoring And Managing Side Effects

Despite their effectiveness, hormone therapies may have side effects. At Womens Health Group Chicago, we carefully monitor our patients for any adverse reactions to therapy through regular check-ups and lab tests. Our professional team assures personalized care incorporating diet advice, lifestyle adjustments and only uses the lowest necessary treatment dosages ensuring your safety at all times.

Alternative Therapies

At Womens Health Group Chicago, we recognize that every woman is unique in her needs and preferences concerning health management strategies. That’s why apart from traditional interventions; we also provide alternative therapies designed to manage hormonal imbalances naturally without introducing external substances into the body systems. Through dietary changes, biophysical manipulation or herbal medicine among other options – you’re sure to find appropriate treatments for harmonious well-being.

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.
