Hormone Replacement in Westchester

Hormone Replacement Services in Westchester Illinois

Estrogen Replacement Therapy

At Womens Health Group Chicago, we are committed to improving the well-being of women residing in Westchester. One way we do this is through our Estrogen Replacement Therapy (ERT). This hormonal treatment aims to replenish the estrogen levels that naturally decline as a woman ages or undergoes specific medical procedures like a hysterectomy. By doing so, ERT can effectively manage symptoms associated with these changes such as hot flashes, mood swings and vaginal dryness.

Progesterone Replacement Therapy

We also offer Progesterone Replacement Therapy for women in the Westchester area suffering from imbalanced progesterone levels due to perimenopause or other health conditions. This form of therapy restores balance by replacing missing progesterone hormones, which can be integral to combating sleep disturbances, anxiety and numerous premenstrual issues. Our team at Womens Health Group Chicago will guide you every step of the way ensuring your comfort and understanding throughout each session.

Combination Hormone Therapy

For certain women facing more complex hormonal dysfunctions, Combination Hormone Therapy may be required – it is also available here at Womens Health Group Chicago for our patients in Westchester . It involves simultaneous administration of both estrogen and progestin hormones aiming to address more challenging symptomatic discomforts related with menopause while lowering potential risks including uterine cancer.

Bioidentical Hormone Replacement

Our clinic doesn’t stop there; we proudly provide Bioidentical Hormone Replacement options as well for our valued patient residents in Westchester. Derived from plant materials just like soybeans or yams, bioidentical hormones mirror those produced naturally within one’s body closely which ensures fewer side effects along with effective alleviation symptoms related with aging.

Monitoring and Managing Side Effects

Taking into consideration the uniqueness of every woman’s body, we at Womens Health Group Chicago understand not all women respond the same to Hormone Replacement Therapies. Therefore, managing potential side effects and regularly monitoring a patient’s reaction is an integral part of our approach to your health. We will schedule regular checks for Westchester patients to keep tabs on their progress ensuring treatments are working effectively while minimizing any discomfort.

Alternative Therapies

While hormone therapies have proven effective in many cases, some women may still seek or need alternative therapies. At the Womens Health Group Chicago, we recognize diversity in treating women’s hormonal imbalances especially for those who reside within Westchester. We offer alternative avenues such as acupuncture, dietary changes, herbal remedies and more. Our team of experienced doctors will work collaboratively with you to find a plan that fits best with your lifestyle and individual hurdles taking into account personal preference combined with scientific guidance.

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.
