What Is Hormone Management?

Menopause and the years leading up to it (known as perimenopause) are marked by a major drop in estrogen and progesterone within your body. During this transition (typically in your 40s or 50s), your periods will become irregular and eventually stop. Menopause can bring about a number of uncomfortable symptoms, including hot flashes, vaginal dryness, low sex drive, night sweats, weight gain, and moodiness. If you're in menopause, you may be able to get some relief through hormone therapy, which replaces the low levels of estrogen and progesterone. At Gynecology and Cosmetic Surgery Center of Atlanta, Dr. Gerry Sotomayor offers hormone management services for women in many different stages of life.

  • Reduced menopausal symptoms
  • Improved mood and sleep
  • Increased libido
  • Weight management
  • Overall well-being

Through a personalized approach, including lifestyle recommendations and hormone therapy, Dr. Sotomayor's patients often experience significant improvements in their symptoms and overall health.

How Hormone Management Works

At Gynecology and Cosmetic Surgery Center of Atlanta, you'll have an evaluation with Dr. Sotomayor to assess your symptoms. Typically, blood hormone testing is done to detect whether a hormonal imbalance is present. During your visit, we can provide more information on the benefits of hormone management and help you determine whether it's a good fit for your needs and lifestyle. Hormone therapy is provided as part of an individualized treatment plan. Initially, you might want to try recommended lifestyle changes, such as getting more sleep, reducing your stress, and focusing on healthy eating and exercise. We can also offer customized doses of estrogen, progesterone, or both based on your current hormone levels. Many patients notice an improvement in their symptoms within the first few weeks of starting hormone medications.
