estrogen and progesterone | Dr. Marcia Byrd | Atlanta, GAEstrogen and progesterone are female hormones that can have a profound impact on a woman’s physical health and emotional well-being. In addition to impacting the female menstrual cycle and reproductive capacity, these hormones also have an effect on many other systems of the body. Estrogen refers to a class of related hormones (estriol, estradiol, and estrone) produced by the ovaries, and serves over 400 functions in the female body. Progesterone is produced at the beginning of ovulation, with levels increasing throughout the rest of the menstrual cycle, and then dropping immediately before menstruation begins.

Fortunately, women suffering from the symptoms of imbalanced progesterone and estrogen levels have effective and safe treatment options available to reestablish a state of emotional and physical homeostasis. At Byrd Aesthetic & Anti-Aging Center, located in Roswell, Georgia, Dr. Marcia Byrd, M.D., can accurately measure your current hormone levels, diagnose any imbalances that could be causing your symptoms, and utilize bio-identical hormone replacement therapy treatments to restore your hormone balance, alleviate your symptoms, and bring your body back to equilibrium.

Physical and emotional symptoms of imbalanced progesterone and estrogen include the following:

  • Changes in skin condition (acne, oily skin, excessive dryness)
  • Changes in menstruation

Natural Hormone Replacement Therapy

There are two key factors contributing to Dr. Byrd’s history of natural hormone replacement therapy success:

  • The use of bio-identical (natural) hormones rather than synthetic hormones (Premarin, Provera, PremPro etc.)
  • The highly specific customization of each hormone supplementation treatment to meet the needs of her individual patients.

Dr. Byrd realizes how vitally important it is to consider the unique biological and chemical makeup of her patients when formulating an appropriate treatment plan. After conducting extensive laboratory tests and evaluating your current baseline hormone levels, Dr. Byrd will create an individualized hormone supplementation strategy tailored to restore your body to a state of physical health and emotional balance. Byrd Aesthetic & Anti-Aging Center only utilizes bio-identical hormones for treatment, because bio-identical hormones have the same chemical structure as hormones produced by the human body, meaning that your body recognizes the hormones as its own, and the detrimental side effects of synthetic hormone replacement therapy can be avoided.
