Estrogen is the primary female sex hormone. It is also known as the feminizing hormone. Estrogen has a host of positive effects on the body. It has been shown to protect against heart disease, stroke and osteoporosis. It helps relieve the symptoms of menopause, low sexual desire, depression and urinary incontinence.

Many women don’t realize that “estrogen” is a class of hormones that are made of three different molecules. Estradiol is the most potent of these estrogens and estrone and estriol are its weaker forms. Estrogen is made by the ovaries, prior to menopause, but it is also manufactured by the adrenal glands and in fat cells.

At Centers for Sexual Medicine and Wellness Sexual we only use bioidentical hormones to treat your estrogen deficiency. Bioidentical hormones are hormones that have the same chemical and molecular make up as your bodies naturally occurring hormones. These hormones exert a similar effect as your own hormones.

There are many types of estrogen therapies from pills to creams and gels, to patches and vaginal insertables. Dr. Gittens will take the time to discuss the pros and cons of each and recommend the best treatment for your particular situation.
