Estrogen Replacement Therapy

At Womens Health Group Chicago, we understand the significant role hormones play in a woman’s overall health and wellbeing. We specialize in Estrogen Replacement Therapy which is highly recommended for women experiencing estrogen deficiency due to menopause or other reasons. Disruption of normal hormone levels can lead to discomforting symptoms such as hot flashes, sleep disturbances, vaginal dryness and even osteoporosis. Our experienced healthcare professionals carefully administer this therapy tailored to each individual’s unique needs by monitoring your estrogen levels to ensure optimum functioning within your body system.

Progesterone Replacement Therapy

Consistency and balance of hormones are pivotal in every woman’s life cycle changes from puberty through child-bearing age and menopause. Progesterone serves as an important feminine hormone responsible for menstrual regulation, pregnancy preparations and mood stabilization among many others. At Womens Health Group Chicago, we offer personalized treatments including progesterone replacement therapy that helps restore hormonal harmony while minimizing unpleasant experiences associated with depletion like irregular cycles or premenstrual syndrome (PMS).

Combination Hormone Therapy

Because every woman is unique, there may be times when a single hormone therapy does not address all concerns effectively hence calls for Combination Hormone Therapy comes into action. This treatment involves supplementing both estrogen and progesterone together aiming towards restoring their optimal function without compromising on comfort or ease during transitions brought about by natural body changes over time or surgery-triggered alterations like a hysterectomy.

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.
