How can the symptoms of PMS be treated?
At Aeternum Aesthetics, we can provide effective treatment of PMS with bioidentical hormones. Before doing so, your symptoms are evaluated by our Specialist Nurse and a hormone profile blood test is performed during the second part of your monthly cycle. This helps us to establish whether there is an abnormal hormonal imbalance. If we discover that there is an abnormal hormonal imbalance then the relevant bioidentical hormones can be prescribed at a dosage tailored to your individual needs.
Not only do we create a bespoke treatment plan with tailored bioidentical hormones, but we also consider your overall health including nutrition and lifestyle. Your treatment plan is tailored exactly to your needs to achieve the optimum hormonal balance.
