Hormone Replacement in South Chicago

Hormone Replacement Services in South Chicago Illinois

Estrogen Replacement Therapy

At Womens Health Group Chicago, we specialize in providing quality Estrogen Replacement Therapy services for women of all ages from the South Chicago area. This therapy is an excellent solution for those experiencing uncomfortable symptoms associated with menopause or other estrogen deficiencies. Supplementing your body’s natural hormones with a stable source of external estrogen can help combat these changes and improve overall health.

Progesterone Replacement Therapy

A well-balanced hormone system is central to every woman’s health. Progesterone replacement therapy, available at our clinic can effectively counteract the disruptions caused by progesterone deficiency, often due to menopause or certain medical conditions. Our experienced team here in South Chicago carefully determines the right dosage schedule tailored specifically according to each patient’s unique hormonal needs.

Combination Hormone Therapy

For women who need more comprehensive treatment options, we offer Combination Hormone Therapy at Womens Health Group Chicago. This approach combines both estrogen and progesterone therapy to synergistically address multiple issues related to hormonal imbalances simultaneously. Our expert clinicians utilize evidence-based practices ensuring you receive safe and effective care that improves your quality of life.

Bioidentical Hormone Replacement

Bioidentical Hormone Replacement (BHRT) offered at our clinic provides women from South Chicago another viable option when dealing with menopausal symptoms or other related hormone imbalances issues. BHRT utilizes plant-derived compounds designed identically on a molecular level to human hormones; hence they’re considered “bioidentical.” This method offers several potential benefits like fewer side effects compared with traditional treatments.

Monitoring and Managing Side Effects

Ensuring safety while delivering quality care is paramount at Women’s Health Group Chicago – which also includes providing optimal monitoring measures during any hormone replacement programs undertaken by our patients throughout their journey. Our skilled team conducts regular check-ups and works closely with patients to carefully manage any side effects ensuring optimum health throughout the process.

Alternative Therapies

Recognizing that every woman is unique, we additionally offer a range of alternative therapies tailored to suit individual needs and preferences at Women’s Health Group Chicago. These integrative options run parallel with traditional treatments aimed at boosting overall wellness and combating hormone imbalance symptoms. From nutritional therapy to relaxation techniques, we strive towards providing comprehensive care for all women in South Chicago.

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.
