Many women spend years in dreadful anticipation of their looming menopause experience. For some, that dread arises from watching other female family members go through life-disrupting mood swings, hot flashes, night sweats, hormonal imbalances, and insomnia. For others, they have succumbed to the socially accepted fear of losing their womanhood and youthfulness.
Dr. O’Reilly has partnered with a local compounding pharmacy to provide “Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy” for those interested in mimicking what their body used to provide before menopause. We provide information on symptoms and treatments that gives women a realistic and non-intimidating way to learn about what is happening in and with their bodies. Some of the frustration and anxiety associated with menopause results from feeling confused and lost versus actual discomfort from symptoms.
For further support, patients are always encouraged to speak with their Women’s Health Center physician.
