Hormones are an essential part of the human body that regulate various bodily functions, including metabolism, growth and development, and reproductive health. However, as women age, their hormone levels can become imbalanced, leading to a range of uncomfortable symptoms such as hot flashes, night sweats, mood swings, and vaginal dryness.
At Forum Health, we offer a number of unique hormone-balancing treatments that are designed to suit your body’s needs. One treatment is prescribed in the form of a simple cream. Hormone creams are a popular treatment option for women experiencing hormonal imbalances, and they offer several benefits, including:
1. Relieves Menopausal Symptoms
Menopause is a natural process that occurs in women as they age, and it can lead to a range of symptoms such as hot flashes, night sweats, and mood swings. Hormone creams, particularly those containing estrogen, can help alleviate these symptoms by restoring hormonal balance in the body. Estrogen cream is especially helpful for women who have experienced surgical menopause or have had their ovaries removed.
2. Increases Vaginal Lubrication
As women age, the levels of estrogen in their body decrease, leading to vaginal dryness, itching, and painful intercourse. Hormone creams can help increase vaginal lubrication, reducing discomfort and improving sexual function. In addition, estrogen cream can help thicken the vaginal walls, reducing the risk of vaginal infections and other complications.
3. Improves Bone Health
Estrogen plays a vital role in maintaining bone health, and as women age, their estrogen levels decrease, leading to a higher risk of osteoporosis and bone fractures. Hormone creams containing estrogen can help reduce the risk of bone loss and improve bone density, reducing the risk of fractures and other complications.
4. Helps with Skin Health
Estrogen also plays a role in maintaining healthy skin by increasing collagen production and reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Hormone creams containing estrogen can help improve skin health, reducing the signs of aging and promoting a youthful appearance.
5. Lowers Risk of Cardiovascular Disease
Estrogen also plays a role in maintaining cardiovascular health by reducing cholesterol levels, improving blood vessel function, and reducing the risk of blood clots. Hormone creams containing estrogen can help reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease, particularly in women who have gone through menopause.
Hormone creams are a safe and effective treatment option for women experiencing hormonal imbalances. They offer several benefits, including relieving menopausal symptoms, increasing vaginal lubrication, improving bone health, promoting healthy skin, and reducing the risk of cardiovascular disease.
