How your OBGYN specialist in San Dimas, CA, can help you
Hormones affect many of your body functions, and if they are out of balance, it can dramatically affect your body. Fortunately, your OBGYN doctor can help. Dr. Richard Anthony Williams of Williams Ob/Gyn & Associates in San Dimas, CA, offers a wide range of obstetrical and gynecological services, including hormonal imbalance treatments to help you.
Hormonal imbalances can be caused naturally, by going through puberty, becoming pregnant, or going through menopause. They can also be caused by medical problems or surgeries, including having a hysterectomy.
Some of the signs and symptoms of a hormonal imbalance include:
- Problems sleeping
- Gaining weight
- Gaining belly fat
- Lowered sex drive
- Lack of energy
- Depression or anxiety
Your OBGYN specialist will do some initial tests to determine your current hormone levels. Then your doctor will create an individualized treatment plan designed to get your hormones back in balance. Part of your treatment plan may include dietary changes, increased exercise, and possibly, hormone replacement therapy.
Hormone replacement therapy can include synthetic hormones, or bio-identical hormones. Bio-identical hormones are identical in structure to human hormones so they offer many advantages. Consider that bio-identical hormones:
- Have fewer side effects
- Are longer-lasting
- Create a steady stream of hormones in your blood
- Have an extensive record of research and testing
- Can increase bone density
- Don't increase your risk of a stroke, blood clots, or a heart attack
You deserve to feel your best, and hormonal imbalance treatments can help. To find out more about hormone imbalance treatments and other OBGYN services, call Dr. Richard Anthony Williams of Williams Ob/Gyn & Associates in San Dimas, CA, at (909) 599-8677.
