Bio-Identical Horomone Replacemnt Therapy
Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) is a form of therapy that uses hormones that are chemically identical to those produced by the human body. Because it lasts for several months, you do not need to think about using medication. Just come into the office for your prescheduled appointments and we do the rest.
BHRT Q & A
As we age, the production of hormones can be affected. Too much or too little of a hormone can have effects on the body, ranging from mild to severe. There are a variety of symptoms men and women suffering from hormone imbalance may experience. These can include hot flashes, mood swings, low libido, weight gain, and fatigue. BHRT may also have some benefits for bone health, cardiovascular health, and cognitive function.
When it comes to bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT), the BioTE® method of therapy is the preferred choice among physicians. It uses tiny, custom-compounded pellets to administer consistent therapeutic levels of bioidentical hormones such as testosterone and estradiol to alleviate or control symptoms that stem from hormonal imbalances. This way of administering hormones may help keep patient’s levels consistent throughout the day as well as being easy for the body to process. When a patient decides to start the BioTE method of pellet therapy, they will typically have about 3-5 procedures yearly.

The symptoms of hormone imbalance can be frustrating to experience, but bioidentical hormone replacement therapy, or BHRT, may help patients live a happy and normal life. On your initial visit we will discuss the reasons for using the BioTE method, as well as perform a full panel blood draw. Bloodwork would then be reviewed with our Physician which will help aid you in deciding the best course of action. The procedure itself is minimally invasive, you will be in and out of the office within 45min and will have no issue driving or continuing your regular day-to-day activities. The benefits of hormone replacement therapy may begin to work within four weeks, as the hormones enter the bloodstream. Some patients begin to feel the benefits of hormone therapy right away, while others won’t experience hormone therapy benefits for a few months. After this initial period, we can maintain the dosage established for the desired effect.
