When Meredith* (name changed at patient’s request) first came to my office after a recommendation from her pharmacist, she hadn’t had a full night’s sleep in over two years. She was on several medications, but none were working.
I soon learned sleeping wasn’t her only complaint. She was experiencing vaginal dryness, pain and bleeding, and as a result was having intimacy issues with her husband.
When hormones are out of balance, the side effects can take over and make life difficult. Meredith wanted a natural treatment, and the only thing her physician had recommended were pharmaceutical drugs. She was ready for a change.
Patients react differently to bio-identical hormone treatments, as every body is different. Meredith reacted amazingly. Almost right away, she was sleeping through the night. After years of struggling, she finally had a natural solution to her sleeplessness.
Once we had her sleep schedule on track, we worked on a plan for her vaginal dryness and bleeding. I recommended the MonaLisa Touch Laser Treatment. The MonaLisa is designed to restore the trophic conditions of the vaginal and the vulvar area. She was able to receive this treatment from me at my private clinic on her own schedule.
After years of struggling to be intimate with her partner, Meredith was eager for a solution.
Two weeks after her initial treatment, she saw vast improvements. By the end of her treatment, she was able to be intimate with her husband with no negative side effects.
It took Meredith 5 months from when I was recommended to her to book an appointment. She explained that fear was why she held back. Fear of the unknown. Fear of change. Fear of another course of treatment that wouldn’t work.
After the first appointment, like with many of my patients, she said to me “why didn’t I do this sooner?”
No drugs. No bleeding. No Fear. This is what Meredith said to me years later when I asked her to recount her experience.
It makes me incredibly happy to help women like Meredith through their health journeys, and if you are experiencing symptoms that impact your life, cast fear aside and make the choice to change your life for the better. I would be honoured to work with you on your journey to a happier, healthier you.
