Hormones & Menopause
Diagnosis and therapy of hormonal disorders
We diagnose and treat any type of woman's hormonal disorder, such as Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), hyperandrogenemia (symptoms include hair loss, hirsutism, acne, insulin resistance) and all other menstrual disorders.
The years before and after the last menstruation are called the climacteric period. It indicates the transition from the phase of life in which women can give birth, to the phase in which no pregnancy is possible. The time after the very last menstrual period is called menopause. On average, women in Germany are 51 years old at this time. The range, however, is large, ranging from 45 years (or earlier) to the mid-50th. Until the hormonal conversion is completed usually more years pass by. We accompany you throughout this time, always with the knowledge that the climacteric period is not a disease but a natural phase of life.
Since the distribution of the female sex hormones progesterone and estrogen changes during the menopause, various symptoms may occur (for example, irregularities in the cycle, hot flushes, sleep disorders, fatigue, loss of libido, dry skin and mucous membranes, joint and muscle pain). Whether at all, how strong and under what conditions menopausal women suffer is very different.
Just over a third of women have no or hardly any problems. However, about one-third of all women feel severe disabilities, which also affect the quality of life. There is no such thing as a potent remedy for coping well with menopause. Depending on the symptoms, however, there are individual treatment options for every woman. We are happy to advise you.
