Bioidentical Hormones for Menopause and Perimenopause

Boulder Menopause Specialist Carrie Ballas, FNP-C has seen many of her patients struggle with the symptoms of aging. The effects of perimenopause and menopause can be debilitating. Carrie Ballas, FNP-C is able to test your hormones and create a personalized combination of Bioidentical Hormones that can return your body back to its youthful balance.

The signs and effects of the menopause transition can begin as early as age 35, although most women become aware of the transition in their mid to late 40s. Normally lasting for several years, its duration varies for every woman, and its course is impossible to predict. Carrie Ballas has her Boulder, Broomfield, and Westminster, Colorado area patients struggle with menopause starting in their 30’s, with perimenopause symptoms beginning to develop years earlier. During perimenopause, which can last 4-6 years and usually ends after twelve months of amenorrhea, a woman’s menstrual cycle becomes irregular and varied, and fertility becomes diminished.

Menopause

Natural menopause is a condition that every healthy woman will experience as she reaches middle age, typically between the ages of 35-59. It is a natural, gradual process that occurs when a woman’s ovaries produce less estrogen and progesterone, and her lifetime supply of eggs becomes depleted. A woman is considered to have reached menopause when a full year has passed since her last menstrual cycle.
