How your doctor in San Dimas can help you
Your hormones play a vital part in how your body functions. You will naturally undergo changes in hormone production during major life milestones like puberty and menopause. You may also have a change in hormone production for an unknown cause, leading to a hormone imbalance.
If you have a hormone imbalance it can cause weight gain including accumulating belly fat, sleeplessness, low sex drive, lack of energy, anxiety, depression and other annoying problems. A hormone imbalance can also lead to more life-changing problems like infertility. Dr. Richard Anthony Williams at Williams Ob/Gyn & Associates in San Dimas, CA, wants to share the facts about hormone imbalance and infertility treatment.
Dr. Williams will perform testing to determine hormone levels and other factors, and then he will develop a treatment plan designed just for you. Some recommended treatments for general hormone imbalance include hormone therapy, bioidentical hormone therapy, medication and natural methods of hormone balancing including diet and exercise.
Hormone therapy can consist of synthetic hormones or bioidentical hormones created from plants. Bioidentical hormones are metabolized more easily and that means fewer side effects for you. Your doctor will make recommendations based on your individual issues and characteristics.
If you have more serious issues like infertility, your infertility may be due to:
- Low thyroid function, known as hypothyroidism
- High levels of male hormone, known as hyperprolactinemia
- Low levels of progesterone, known as luteal phase defect
After Dr. Williams determines potential causes for your infertility, he may recommend these effective treatments to help you get pregnant:
- Fertility medications
- In vitro fertilization
- Intrauterine insemination
- Assisted reproductive technology
- Intrafallopian transfer
- Embryo adoption
A hormone imbalance can cause dramatic changes in your body and how you feel. A lack of critical hormones can also affect your ability to get pregnant. No matter what type of hormone imbalance you have, you can be assured of excellent treatment from Dr. Williams.
