Estrogen Replacement Therapy at Womens Health Group Chicago

At the Womens Health Group Chicago, we believe in offering comprehensive and personalized care for our patients. Our Estrogen Replacement Therapy (ERT) represents our dedication to maintaining your health with safe and effective hormone replacement treatment options. ERT is often used by women during menopause to help handle symptoms such as hot flashes, vaginal dryness, night sweats and mood swings that result from a decrease in estrogen production. Our experienced professionals aim in restoring the hormonal balance of your body using tactical therapeutic interventions.

Progesterone Replacement Therapy: A Commitment to Wellbeing

Living with an imbalance of progesterone can lead to various conditions including heavy periods, fibroids or endometriosis. Progesterone Replacement Therapy is a key component of our holistic approach towards women’s wellness here at Women’s Health Group Chicago. This therapy aids in maintaining healthy levels of this crucial hormone, helping you regain stability thus improving your overall wellbeing. We closely monitor each patient throughout their therapy journey ensuring beneficial outcomes without causing any discomfort.

The Power Of Combination Hormone Therapy

The intricate interplay between hormones sometimes necessitates more than a one-size-fits-all remedy; hence our inclusion of Combination Hormone Therapy within clinical practice at Women’s Health Group Chicago. A balanced combination of progesterone and estrogen may be prescribed depending on individual needs identified through exhaustive initial diagnostics complemented by continuous monitoring sessions aimed empowering you with optimal health dividends.

Experience Bioidentical Hormone Replacement

For those seeking a natural route towards balancing hormones, we propose Bioidentical Hormonal Replacement (BHR). In contrast to synthetic counterparts, bioidenticals resemble hormones naturally produced within female bodies furthering safety while minimizing side-effects tolls associated therein. BHR provided at Women’s Health Group Chicago manifests our ongoing commitment towards innovative yet tried-and-test approaches for your unbeatable health.

Monitoring and Managing Side Effects

Part of our mission at Womens Health Group Chicago is keeping you informed and protected throughout your hormone replacement journey. We have established rigorous procedures for monitoring and managing potential side effects that may arise during treatment. Regular check-ups, blood work analysis, symptom evaluations – all ensuring a secure environment supporting uninterrupted continued care under expert supervision promising seamless journeys optimizing hormonal levels with minimum interferences.

Benefit from Alternative Therapies

Alongside traditional therapies, we also offer a diverse spectrum of alternative therapies which can act as standalone or adjunct treatments in the process of maintaining hormonal balance. From diet & lifestyle modifications to mind-body techniques and use of beneficial herbs; Womens Health Group Chicago offers ample resources aimed at improving patients’ adherence to their personalized health regimens whilst continually moulding these surrounding changing needs thereby strengthening women’s wellness affinities within Oak Forest community.

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.
