Women have 200-300 thousand eggs when they are born. After puberty, hundreds of eggs are expended during each menstrual period.
After the age of 40, the number of eggs decreases significantly and when the number drops below a critical number, menstruation stops and menopause begins.
Since the average life expectancy in ancient times was 40-50 years, menopause was rare.
Today, the average life expectancy is 90-95 years. In other words, women spend almost half of their lives after menopause.
The ovary is a hormone-secreting organ, just like the thyroid and pancreas. Just as thyroid hormone is used for life if the thyroid gland is underactive, insulin is used for life if the pancreas is underactive. If the ovary also stops, it is necessary to use its hormones.
The main ovarian hormones are estrogen and its opposite, progesterone.
When given in a balanced way, this duo prevents osteoporosis (osteoporosis), helps heart disease, metabolism, blood vessels, skin, sleep, psychological state, sexual life and even Alzheimer’s disease. Hot flushes and sweating go away, and estrogen causes a feeling of well-being.
In aesthetic applications, which is our subject, it increases the moisture of the skin, tightens it, and is good for wrinkles and sagging skin.
For this reason, Post Menopausal Balanced Hormone Therapy is applied in our clinic under the leadership of Prof. Dr. Teksen Çamlıbel and this treatment continues until the age of 65.
Don’t go without estrogen!
