Medicine For Sufferers Of Estrogen Deficiency?
Hello,,. What medications are recommended for estrogen deficiency therapy Which can be sought at pharmacies?
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
The hormone estrogen is the main hormone that regulates female sexual function. This hormone is also produced by men, but the amount is small. The hormone estrogen plays a role in the development of secondary sexual organs at puberty, controls the menstrual cycle, causes breast changes from small to adult, also plays a role in bone metabolism and cholesterol, regulates food intake, body weight, glucose metabolism, as well as the body's sensitivity to the hormone insulin ( blood sugar regulating hormones).
Lack of the hormone estrogen can make a woman decrease her sexual arousal, vaginal dryness or atrophy, menstrual cycles are disturbed, mood swings, the body feels hot, the breast feels painful, easy to experience migraines and other headaches, more at risk of urinary tract infections, density bones decrease, and even cause infertility. This lack of estrogen can be caused by ovarian disorders, for example due to excessive exercise, eating disorders, disorders of the thyroid gland or pituitary gland, premature ovarian failure, Turner syndrome, chronic gout, or also due to reasonable changes at menopause.
Not all cases of estrogen deficiency in women need treatment. However, not all cases can also be underestimated. Handling of the lack of estrogen in women can be a variety of ways, such as the provision of estrogen therapy, hormone replacement therapy, also lifestyle modification. To determine the right treatment, of course it needs to be identified first, are you really experiencing estrogen deficiency? If it is true, what is the cause, is it still normal or not?
Although you can get drugs for cases of estrogen hormone deficiency at the pharmacy, you still need to check with your doctor or obstetrician first to get the correct prescription as indicated. Therefore, before buying any medicine, you should first check yourself at the nearest health facility.
I hope this helps.
