Pubic Hair Thinning During Menopause
Pubic hair thinning is first and foremost a reflection of decreased testosterone function. There is increased possibility of also developing vaginal atrophy because the vaginal tissue also depends upon proper testosterone function, and not only on proper estrogen levels. Low testosterone has also been associated with inflammation, itching, pain of the vulva. This vulvar inflammation, or vulvitis, may present with or without pubic hair thinning.
Although thinning of pubic hair is usually not a distressing symptom, it can be a sign of low testosterone, which could result in other symptoms if not given attention. If there are other symptoms of low testosterone, in addition to the night sweats, then TestoGain™ may be a good choice.
While decreased testosterone function is the primary cause of pubic hair thinning, another possible hormonal cause of pubic hair thinning is decreased thyroid function. Decreased thyroid function has also been implicated in thinning of scalp hair. Restoring optimal function of thyroid hormones can have significant health benefits. If pubic hair thinning is due to low thyroid function than consider ThyroMend™ even if thyroid replacement therapy is being taken because thyroid function is a complex process. Use the Hypothyroid Risk Questionnaire™ to determine risk of hypothyroidism. If the pubic hair thinning is due to low thyroid function, then consider ThyroMend™.
Since it is possible to have more than one hormone imbalance, more than one of the Hormone Specific™ Formulations may be appropriate. Look at the symptoms associated with each major hormone imbalance to help you determine the most likely cause of these symptoms.
Consider TestoGain™ if you have other symptoms of low testosterone, which may include decreased libido; less sexual fantasies or less sexual desire; less likely to become sexually aroused; less pleased with sex; feeling more irritable; feeling less composed and in control; feeling less motivated in general; less assertive; less energetic; becoming anemic, or think you are anemic; low blood pressure; less muscle strength; you feel weaker; having more trouble with mental skills requiring logic and problem solving; having trouble focusing and maintaining your attention; memory weakening; trouble remembering things and events; feel more depressed; mood is low; less confident; feeling frightened or afraid.

Even though pubic hair thinning in menopause may simply be due to changes in hormones that can be addressed with one or more of the Hormone Specific™ Formulations, it is important to discuss these symptoms with a healthcare professional to make sure that there is not a more serious medical condition that needs to be addressed.
If there are other symptoms that may be due to menopause changes, consider using the Menopause Type® Questionnaire to do a more comprehensive analysis of which hormone problems may be involved.
