Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy


Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy with BioTE

Hormone fluctuations are an inevitable part of life. Women experience hormone changes as they move through different stages of life: puberty, pregnancy, menopause, and peri-menopause. In addition to these life-related changes, hormone imbalances can be brought on by stressors like illness, injury, and emotional trauma. This can cause symptoms such as hot flashes, fatigue, weight gain, lack of sex drive, and sleep problems.

However, thanks to BioTE, men and women can deal with these symptoms and return to a more confident, energetic, and fulfilled life.

What is BioTE?

Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy, or BHRT, is an option for women who want to replace the hormones they no longer produce after menopause or during andropause. BioTE is simply a type of hormone therapy. The treatment uses bioidentical hormones that are chemically identical to those found naturally in our bodies.

How Does BioTE Work?

BioTE pellet therapy releases microdoses of estrogen and/or testosterone into your body. This treatment differs from oral hormone replacement, which simultaneously releases a high dose of hormones into the system. Microdoses are released into your body as needed, and because the treatment is applied to the skin rather than orally ingested like traditional hormone replacement therapy (HRT), it doesn’t carry the same health risks.

The BioTE Procedure

BioTE’s procedure is relatively straightforward. The BioTE pellets are inserted beneath the skin using a special syringe. The pellets may either be inserted into the buttocks, thighs, or near the hip area. The average insertion procedure takes about 15 minutes.

The post-insertion process involves special care only for the first few days. Wear loose clothing over the insertion area, and avoid strenuous activity until your body has absorbed the pellets.
