How is menopause managed?
Dr. Starke works with each woman, developing a customized treatment plan that meets their needs. If you’re considering hormone replacement therapy, the doctor may begin by testing your hormone levels.
Dr. Starke prescribes bioidentical hormone therapy, which are plant-derived hormones that have the same molecular structure as the ones naturally produced in your body. Bioidentical hormones are available commercially, or a compounding pharmacy can formulate them. They’re also available in diverse forms, including topical creams, capsules, injections, troches and pellets.
Pellets are injected under your skin, where they deliver continuous and consistent levels of hormones for 3 – 6 months.
As your hormone levels return to normal, the treatment will help relieve menopause symptoms and prevent problems like osteoporosis.
Additionally, Dr. Starke offers cutting-edge treatment for vaginal atrophy; laser treatment with MonaLisa Touch. This gentle laser produces long-lasting rejuvenation of vaginal tissues, including more vaginal moisture.
