Midlife Transformation: The Power of Education, Empowerment, and Hormone Therapy

ABOUT THE EPISODE

In this conversation, Katey Armstrong shares her journey of discovering Dr. Kelly Casperson and the impact of hormone education on her life. 

HERE’S WHAT WE DISCUSS

  • Education and self-advocacy are crucial in navigating hormone treatment.
  • Individual experiences with hormones can vary, and it is important to find what works best for each person.
  • Taking responsibility for one’s health and wellness is empowering.
  • Hormones can have a positive impact on fitness and overall well-being.
  • Estrogen gel can be applied topically and provides benefits such as improved skin health and reduced hot flashes.
  • Vaginal estrogen can be used to improve vaginal dryness and overall comfort.
  • Oral progesterone is often taken in the evening to help with sleep.
  • It can take several weeks to start feeling better after starting hormone therapy, and it’s important to give the body time to adjust.
  • Getting dexa scans to assess bone health can be challenging in some areas.
  • Estrogen receptors need time to regulate and upregulate in response to hormone therapy.
  • Hormone therapy has long-term benefits for conditions such as dementia, heart disease, and bone health.
  • It’s important to educate oneself and take control of one’s health, rather than relying solely on healthcare providers.
  • Gratitude and appreciation for the conversation and the opportunity to share experiences and knowledge.

Kelly Casperson, MD

She’s the sister, urologist, sex expert and friend you never knew you needed….until now.

Dr. Kelly Casperson is a board certified urologist. That makes her an expert of the pelvis. And her mission is to empower women to live their best love lives. Because let’s be honest. None of us were taught right. Combining the power of mind, body and relationships, Dr. Kelly joyously breaks down the societal barriers that are keeping us from awakening into our best intimate experience.

Listen, share and subscribe.

Whether you are young or past menopause, single or in a long-term bond, it is never too late or too early to realize YOU ARE NOT BROKEN. With humor, candor and ease, I break down the stories that we have been told about being sexual beings, to help us play, explore, and normalize our lives. Nothing in this podcast is personal medical advice, of course.
