Need a Love Potion?
Chocolate, oysters, fine wine, sexy lingerie, candlelight, red roses, love songs…you’ve tried them all. It’s Valentine’s and you’re running out of options to rev up that lackluster love life. Is it her? Is it him? “It may be both!” says Dr. Lance Campbell, Pharm. D., R.Ph. of Campbell’s Compounding Pharmacy. Dr. Campbell explains, “In both men and women, hormones are the force behind your sex drive. Aging results in a drop in progesterone and estrogen in women, and a drop in testosterone in men. To get your mojo back, you both may need to ensure your hormones are in balance.”
As a woman enters menopause, insufficient levels of progesterone and estrogen can have a really negative affect on her sex life. Dr. Campbell says, “Loss of sex drive is the obvious sign, but fatigue, night sweats, weight gain, headaches, osteoporosis, insomnia, diminished mental clarity, endometriosis, lack of energy or drive, fibrocystic breast disease, hot flashes and vaginal dryness could all be signs that a woman’s hormones are unbalanced. Hormone therapy can alleviate or even eliminate these symptoms, restoring youthful energy and vitality!”
For men, the hormone loss may be more gradual. Dr. Campbell says, “For most men, the decline in testosterone seems to ‘sneak up on them.’ One day they realize they just don’t have the drive, self-confidence, assertiveness, or energy they had in their youth. Of course the libido is affected, but other symptoms may include fatigue, depression, anger, anxiety, memory loss, decreased muscle mass, relationship problems or erectile dysfunction. Our society writes this off as the ‘mid-life crisis’…but it could be more. With the right balance of hormones, a man can feel like himself again!”
Ready to rekindle the flame? Call Dr. Campbell and set up an appointment to talk about hormone balancing. Dr. Campbell will explain the fundamentals of BHRT (BioIdentical Hormone Replacement Therapy), how it can affect your health and your relationship and the misconceptions associated with its use. He wants you to fully understand the hormones and how they interact with the other systems in your body. He welcomes both individual and group consultations…perhaps a double date with your Valentine? Dr. Campbell says, “Hormone replacement therapy could be the love potion you’ve both been looking for. I would love to help put the romance back in your relationship this Valentine’s!”
