Sermorelin and Testosterone: The Perfect Duo for Getting Through Menopause?

Women...is your looming menopause giving you anxiety?

“How am I going to feel? Will I be able to sleep? Are my days going to be miserable?”

Or the women currently experiencing menopause...are the side effects of this momentous event too much to handle? Has your quality of life greatly diminished with depression, chronic fatigue and lack of motivation?

If you are one of these women, missing out on the good parts of life due to hormonal changes within the body, consider starting a hormone replacement therapy (HRT) program to help you deal with all of these changes and feel like your old self again. Modern medicine is incredible, and with HRT, women no longer need to suffer through the potential YEARS of unwanted menopausal symptoms. Why suffer when you don't have to?

What is Menopause?

Technically, menopause has begun when a woman has not experienced a menstrual cycle for one year and it is the cessation of menstruation as well as a woman's fertile years. However, most women experience a transitional period before the last period between the ages of 45 to 55 with symptoms such as irregular periods and occasional hot flashes. This is referred to as perimenopause.

The amounts of estrogen and progesterone produced in the ovaries will vary and start to become erratic. The bones will become less dense and energy metabolism will change, typically leading to weight gain.

Once the periods have officially stopped, then a woman has entered menopause and the symptoms may really start to ramp up. These symptoms include: vaginal dryness, hot flashes, chills, night sweats, insomnia, weight gain and mood changes. Now, who wants to experience this every day?? NO ONE!

However, some women may have very minimal symptoms and will easily get through menopause to the post-menopausal stage. Once post-menopausal, some of the symptoms will retain themselves, including the added weight, vaginal dryness and potentially depression after all of the intense changes.

Sermorelin Acetate for Women

One way to treat the symptoms of menopause is via HRT and a good combination for many women may be sermorelin acetate and testosterone. During perimenopause, the production of estrogen, progesterone and testosterone slows down, as stated previously. Estrogen is a hormone that plays a role in regulating growth hormone secretion and also modulates the responsiveness of cells to growth hormone stimulation. Therefore, a decline in growth hormone levels begins as well. Known as somatopause, the symptoms of this decline include decreased muscle mass and increased body fat, usually around the midsection. Combine this with menopause and low testosterone levels and life will not be the same!

At our clinic, we highly recommend the use of sermorelin acetate injections, which is a more natural way of boosting your growth hormone levels. Sermorelin acetate is a synthetic version of growth hormone-releasing hormone that stimulates the production of human growth hormone (HGH).

Testosterone's Effects on Women After a Hysterectomy

In terms of testosterone, most women's testosterone levels also fall with age and during perimenopause. But it has been shown that testosterone may help post-menopausal women feel like themselves again – in the bedroom, in the gym and in life in general. Doctors have also noted that women benefit from testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) after undergoing a hysterectomy, which can have similar effects on the female body as does menopause (with the removal of the uterus, women no longer undergo menstrual cycles and hormone levels are drastically affected).

Recently, a study compared different doses of testosterone on a group of post-menopausal women who had undergone a hysterectomy (with or without the removal of both ovaries) and were exhibiting low testosterone levels. The results were great: as the testosterone doses increased, the better the women felt. They experienced better sex and increased muscle strength and power. The women who were receiving testosterone doses reported higher sexual function and desire when compared to the placebo group. The most significant boost in sexual function was reported from the women who were taking the highest dose of testosterone at 25mg.

Sermorelin and Testosterone: Easing Menopause Symptoms

However, no changes were found in any of the test groups (the women taking testosterone) in the amount of fat mass. Muscle mass and strength were improved, but most of the stubborn fat remained on the midsection and elsewhere. This is one reason why a combination of testosterone and sermorelin acetate may be the best option for menopausal and post-menopausal women.

Sermorelin acetate boosts growth hormone levels which impacts bone mineral density (staving off osteoporosis, a major concern for post-menopausal women), decreases body fat as well as increases cell rejuvenation leading to healthier skin and hair. Testosterone injections boost a woman's sex drive and brings back lean muscle mass, strength and power. With sermorelin acetate and testosterone, you get the best of both worlds!

Both sermorelin acetate and testosterone injections are easy to take and can be done in the comfort of your own home. There is a very low risk of overdose for both of these hormones especially when prescribed and monitored by a certified endocrinologist or physician. If you are woman experiencing lowered quality of life from menopause or are interested in learning more about mediating future symptoms of menopause, call one of our hormone advisors to discuss HRT options or even just what to expect from menopause.
