The Benefits of Hormone Therapy

The human body goes through an immeasurable number of changes over its lifetime. Between puberty, periods, pregnancy, childbirth, andropause (male menopause), and menopause, we are no strangers to bodily transitions. The good news is there is a common denominator for all of the changes our bodies endure – hormones. The levels at which our hormones reside change over time. Therefore, having the knowledge and tools to keep them balanced as life moves forward is imperative to your overall health and well-being. That is why BioTe’s hormone replacement therapy is taking the world by storm. Read on to explore all things Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy or BHRT–what it is, how it works, and if it’s the right treatment for you. 


What is Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy? 

As we move through the stages of our lives, hormones such as estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone can slowly increase or diminish. Hormone levels being too high or too low can result in a range of moderate to severe side effects. These vital hormones help us to regulate metabolism, increase sexual function, improve growth, enhance mood, and so much more. That is where Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy steps in to save the day. BioTe’s specialized method of hormone replacement pellet therapy uses custom-compounded pellets designed to replace the hormones both men and women lose over time. Each and every treatment is perfectly prescribed to meet your unique needs and improve your unique symptoms. 


How does Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy Work? 

Prior to BHRT pellet therapy, your provider will gather your individual hormone and nutrient levels using a quick and comprehensive blood work test. After the results are thoroughly analyzed and your individualized plan is in place, you’ll be ready for treatment. During treatment, your provider will apply a local anesthetic to numb your skin and make a small incision. They will then insert the pellets, containing both testosterone and estrogen, into the subcutaneous fat layer of the skin. As the pellets dissolve and are absorbed, they go on to release a continuous stream of hormones throughout the body, improving any hormone imbalances. 


What should I expect post-treatment? 

Every patient is unique, and so is your path to hormone optimization. The majority of hormone therapy patients report relief in as little as four weeks, but the full effects can take up to six or more months. A minimum of two hormone pellet insertions is recommended annually. However, you know your body best, and BHRT therapy is available whenever you need it next. After a BHRT treatment, you can expect to see many positive improvements such as:
