Rebalance Your Hormones

Regain Your Sense of Self

Womanhood is an ever-changing gallery of life stages. Hormones play a natural role in signaling those changes, but hormonal imbalances can often cause distress and discomfort.

Our mothers and grandmothers may have had to bear the symptoms of menopause or other hormonal health issues with a stiff upper lip, but with hormone assessments, hormone replacement therapy (HRT), and supplemental hormonal treatments, we don’t have to.

Let’s break the cycle with intentionally different medical care.

Hormone Management for Women of All Ages

Hormone imbalances can strain both the mind and the body. Without the proper approach, the list of associated symptoms can leave you exhausted, frustrated, and uncomfortable.

You might be a good candidate for an assessment if you fit into the following categories:

HRT for Menopause

Women going through perimenopause experience hormonal changes very keenly. The classic symptoms include hot flashes and mood swings, but menopausal women also experience hidden side effects like bone density loss or increased cholesterol.

The fluctuation and gradual loss of hormones can interfere with daily life activities and reveal signs of aging. Hormone replacement therapy for menopause can balance these symptoms and help you age more gracefully, as well as reduce risks for osteoporosis and other age-related complications.

Assessments for Reproductive Health

For menstruating women experiencing irregular periods, severe PMS, intense cramping, or other related concerns, birth control is usually the first, middle, and last line of defense that most doctors prescribe. When used for symptom management, however, birth control often masks the problem rather than fixing it.

Oftentimes, the root cause of these concerns is hormonal, and with the right approach to treatment, a well-trained hormone specialist can help you regulate your hormones and improve your quality of life.

Your Hormone Journey at ZüpMed

ZüpMed’s step-by-step process for hormone management leaves no stone unturned. Dr. Yopp prioritizes the doctor-patient relationship so you can navigate key milestones and changes as a team.

Here’s what you can expect from your hormone-balancing journey.

Step 1: Your Consultation

Getting an accurate assessment of your needs requires a dedicated and thorough approach. At ZüpMed, your hormone specialist will spend a full 45 minutes to an hour with you, going over your current symptoms, previous treatments, personal/family health history, and more.

Step 2: Hormone Testing

The next step is to test your hormone levels to get an accurate baseline for HRT or supplemental treatment. Your initial conversation with Dr. Yopp will give our team a better idea of where to start testing, but potential labs could include serum, saliva, or blood labs, genetic testing, or urine or stool samples.

Step 3: Finding the Right Treatment for You

Once Dr. Yopp has assessed the results of your hormone tests, she will custom-tailor the personalized dose and form to balance your natural hormone levels and restore your sense of self. This involves prescribing FDA-approved and or compounded human-identical hormones to fit your needs.

Step 4: Monitoring & Adjustment

As with any medical treatment, hormone replacement therapy requires routine monitoring. Frequent follow-ups with your hormone specialist allow us to assess how well your treatment is going or make changes if you have any concerns.  At ZüpMed, we also recommend labs that assess hormone metabolism, which helps us ensure your safety throughout the treatment process. In doing so, put your safety front and center during treatment.

Even though it can help identify risks for hormone-related cancers, this monitoring piece is often missing from other practices (but not ours!). We feel it is a very important piece of the puzzle.
