Hormone Replacement in Western Springs

Hormone Replacement Services in Western Springs Illinois

Estrogen Replacement Therapy

At Womens Health Group Chicago, we understand the crucial role that hormones play in maintaining your overall well-being. One such treatment option that we offer is Estrogen Replacement Therapy (ERT). Often prescribed for patients who are undergoing menopause or had their ovaries removed, ERT can help manage symptoms like hot flashes, sleep disturbances and mood changes. We use advanced diagnostic tools to ensure you receive a personalized estrogen therapy plan tailored to suit your unique needs.

Progesterone Replacement Therapy

Our care at Womens Health Group Chicago extends to Progesterone replacement therapy as well. This specialized hormone helps regulate menstruation and prepares the body for pregnancy. When levels fall too low, it can lead to problems such as irregular periods or issues with conception. Our experts will provide individualized progesterone therapy strategies backed by years of medical experience and research, ensuring a gentle transition into this new phase of hormonal balance.

Combination Hormone Therapy

We’re proud to also specialize in Combination Hormone Therapy at our clinic – an evidence-based approach that combines different hormones together when required. Whether it’s due to menopause, cancer treatments or other conditions which alter your natural hormone production; combination hormonal treatment may provide relief from the related symptoms while restoring overall health and equilibrium within your body system.

Bioidentical Hormone Replacement

If you’re seeking a more natural solution, consider our Bioidentical Hormone Replacement options here at Womens Health Group Chicago. These therapies utilize hormones chemically identical to those produced in your own body offering potentially fewer side effects than traditional synthetic hormone treatments.. By creating a match for what the body naturally produces; bioidentical hormones aim for seamless integration providing optimal patient comfort each step of the way.

Monitoring and Managing Side Effects

The journey to hormonal balance is not without its complexities. That’s why at Womens Health Group Chicago, monitoring and managing side effects of hormone replacement therapy are integral components of patient care. Trust that our skilled medical team will closely monitor your physical responses, adjusting treatments accordingly for optimal health outcomes while ensuring a safe progression of your personalized therapy plan.

Alternative Therapies

While hormone replacement therapies tend to be most commonly pursued among women seeking help with their hormones; We understand not everyone prefers this course of action or might respond best to it. Therefore, Womens Health Group Chicago also offers an array of alternative treatments suited for those searching non-hormonal solutions. Explore these therapeutic options right in the heart of Western Springs alongside caring professionals dedicated to supporting hormonal health and overall well-being from every angle.

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.
