Hormone Replacement in Westmont

Hormone Replacement Services in Westmont Illinois

Estrogen Replacement Therapy

At Womens Health Group Chicago, we understand the challenges women face when their hormone levels fluctuate. During these times, estrogen replacement therapy can be an effective option in managing symptoms such as hot flashes and night sweats that are common during menopause. Our expert clinicians focus on creating individualized treatment plans based on the unique needs of each patient. We use top-grade medical techniques to provide safe estrogen supplementation while minimizing side effects.

Progesterone Replacement Therapy

When it comes to balancing essential hormones in a woman’s body, progesterone plays a crucial role. We offer personalized progesterone replacement therapy services for our patients experiencing hormonal imbalances as a result of pre-menopause, post-menopause or other health conditions at Womens Health Group Chicago. By restoring progesterone levels through our state-of-the-art administration methods, we aim to alleviate symptoms such as bloating, mood swings or irregular periods and improve your overall well-being.

Combination Hormone Therapy

Recognizing the synergistic relationship between key hormones like estrogen and progesterone can significantly support a woman’s health which will consequently enhance her quality of life. Therefore at Womens Health Group Chicago we employ combination hormone therapy where necessary, administering both hormones simultaneously to stabilize hormonal fluctuations effectively. This approach has proven beneficial for many women dealing with bothersome perimenopausal and post-menopausal symptoms.

Bioidentical Hormone Replacement

The journey towards optimal health requires natural solutions that work closely with the body; this is where Bioidentical Hormone Replace (BHRT) provides value in storing balance regarding female reproductive hormones without using synthetic ones –this means each treatment is molecularly identical to those naturally found within our bodies increasing safety & compatibility profiles.

Monitoring and Managing Side Effects

Every therapy comes with potential side effects, which emphasizes the need for diligent monitoring. At Womens Health Group Chicago, we prioritize ongoing and thorough check-ups to monitor your hormonal balance continuously and ensure early identification of any adverse reactions or potential complications from hormone replacement therapy. Your health and safety is our primary concern; thus we focus not only on delivering treatment but also effective management of side effects.

Alternative Therapies

Understanding the diverse needs of women’s healthcare led us to explore more natural therapeutic options. As a part of this commitment in Westmont, we offer alternative therapies as appropriate based on individual cases when traditional methods are ineffective or undesired by patients. Our repertoire includes lifestyle modification advice, dietary supplements recommendations among other non-hormonal strategies — under professional guidance ensuring optimum results & patient satisfaction at Womens Health Group 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.
