BioTe Hormone Replacement Therapy for Women

BioTe Hormone Replacement Therapy for Women

Many women will experience a hormone imbalance and not even realize it. Symptoms can range from subtle to debilitating and are often masked by medications that are prescribed for anxiety, depression, insomnia, weight gain, and more. Having your hormones checked regularly will reveal whether your hormones are optimized. The good news – BioEnve offers BioTE Hormone Replacement Therapy.

What Causes a Hormone Imbalance in Women?

Hormone imbalance in women can occur as part of the natural aging process and may reflect genetic predispositions for certain conditions. However, hormone balance is affected by the food we eat, exercising, and the amount of stress we experience.

What is the Endocrine System?

The endocrine system is a series of glands that produce and discrete hormones throughout the body. Did you know that hormones do a lot more than regulate mood and sexuality? They determine whether you will be at risk for diabetes, heart disease, osteoporosis, Alzheimer's, and thyroid disease. Learn more about the endocrine system and hormone imbalance below.

What Conditions Can Hormone Imbalance Cause?

When you have an imbalance in the endocrine systems, you have endocrine disease, which is a hormone imbalance. This means that there is either too much or too little women hormone being produced somewhere within the endocrine system. Issues regarding this:

  • Menstrual cycles, breast abnormalities can stem
  • Metabolism problems come from issues with the thyroid gland

Enjoy a Healthy Sex Life with the O-shot Procedure

Enjoy a Healthy Sex Life with the O-shot Procedure

The O-shot® is an exciting, painless procedure that uses your own growth factors extracted from your plasma to enhance sexual function and improve urinary incontinence issues.

What to expect during the O-Shot treatment?

We start by applying a vaginal numbing cream to the treatment area. While numbing, we will draw your blood and then place it into a centrifuge to spin it down and separate your plasma from your blood.

We will then extract the growth factors from the blood and inject it into an area near the clitoris and into the area of the upper vagina that is most important for the sexual response, using a procedure called the O-shot®.

How long do O-Shot results last?

The effects of this treatment last about 12 months or longer as it varies with each patient. There is no downtime with this procedure.

Urinary Incontinence

Urinary incontinence is the loss of bladder control or leaking urine.
The two most common types of urinary incontinence that affect women are stress incontinence and urge incontinence also called overactive bladder. Incontinence affects twice as many women as men. This may be because pregnancy, childbirth, and menopause may make urinary incontinence more likely. Urinary incontinence is not a normal part of aging, and it can be treated.

What causes urinary incontinence?

Urine is made by the kidneys and stored in the bladder. The bladder has muscles that tighten when you need to urinate. When the bladder muscles tighten, urine is forced out of your bladder through a tube called the urethra. At the same time, the sphincter muscles around the urethra relax to let the urine out of your body.

Incontinence can happen when the bladder muscles suddenly tighten and the sphincter muscles are not strong enough to pinch the urethra shut. This causes a sudden, strong urge to urinate that you may not be able to control. Pressure caused by laughing, sneezing or exercising can cause you to leak urine.

Urinary incontinence may also happen if there is a problem with the nerves that control the bladder muscles and urethra. Urinary incontinence can mean you leak a small amount of urine or release a lot of urine all at once.

Who gets urinary incontinence?

Urinary incontinence affects twice as many women as men. This is because reproductive health events unique to women, like pregnancy, childbirth, and menopause, affect the bladder, urethra, and other muscles that support these organs.

Urinary incontinence can happen to women at any age, but it is more common in older women. This is probably because of hormonal changes during menopause. More than 4 in 10 women 65 and older have urinary incontinence.

Why does urinary incontinence affect more women than men?

Women have unique health events, such as pregnancy, childbirth, and menopause, that may affect the urinary tract and the surrounding muscles. The pelvic floor muscles that support the bladder, urethra, uterus (womb), and bowels may become weaker or damaged. When the muscles that support the urinary tract are weak, the muscles in the urinary tract must work harder to hold urine until you are ready to urinate. This extra stress or pressure on the bladder and urethra can cause urinary incontinence or leakage.

Also, the female urethra is shorter than the male urethra. Any weakness or damage to the urethra in a woman is more likely to cause urinary incontinence. This is because there is less muscle keeping the urine in until you are ready to urinate.

What are the types of urinary incontinence that affect women?

The two most common types of urinary incontinence in women are:

  • Stress incontinence.
  • This is the most common type of incontinence. It is also the most common type of incontinence that affects younger women.
  • Stress incontinence happens when there is stress or pressure on the bladder. Stress incontinence can happen when weak pelvic floor muscles put pressure on the bladder and urethra by making them work harder.
  • With stress incontinence, everyday actions that use the pelvic floor muscles, such as coughing, sneezing, or laughing, can cause you to leak urine. Sudden movements and physical activity can also cause you to leak urine.
  • Urge incontinence.
  • With urge incontinence, urine leakage usually happens after a strong, sudden urge to urinate and before you can get to a bathroom. Some women with urge incontinence are able to get to a bathroom in time but feel the urge to urinate more than eight times a day. They also do not urinate much once they get to the bathroom.
  • Urge incontinence is sometimes called an "overactive bladder." Urge incontinence is more common in older women. It can happen when you don't expect it, such as during sleep, after drinking water, or when you hear or touch running water.

Many women with urinary incontinence have both stress and urge incontinence. This is called "mixed" incontinence.

What are the symptoms of urinary incontinence?

Urinary incontinence is not a disease by itself. Urinary incontinence is a symptom of another health problem, usually weak pelvic floor muscles. In addition to urinary incontinence, some women have other urinary symptoms:

  • Pressure or spasms in the pelvic area that causes a strong urge to urinate
  • Going to the bathroom more than usual (more than eight times a day or more than twice at night)
  • Urinating while sleeping (bedwetting)

Gynecological Evaluations

At BioEnve, we perform a variety of routine, complex and hormonal lab evaluations in the office. The exact labs drawn depend upon what labs a patient has already had done recently as well as his/her symptoms and medical conditions. Most of the labs are interpreted with those symptoms in mind, so the lab's "normal range" is often not considered "optimal." We urge our patients to schedule a follow-up appointment to discuss lab results and to work with the provider to formulate a plan of care.

This plan often will involve patient participation with dietary and lifestyle changes as well as possible recommendations of vitamins and/or supplements. In our experience, motivated patients who follow the plan of care, including the dietary recommendations as well as any prescription or over-the-counter medications, have significantly better results than those patients who do not. Dr. Stefanie McCain, Stacy Hammond, FNP, and the staff at BioEnve are dedicated to providing personalized women's healthcare for all ages in a professional manner. Conveniently located at 1038 Early Blvd., Early, TX 76802, we offer complete comprehensive care.

Slim Shot

The Slim Shot (skinny shot) is the first step and foundation to natural weight loss and increased energy. The Slim Shot is a special formula of liver-supporting nutrients that can help with energy, fat metabolism, and hormone balance, which are all key liver functions.

It is a perfect augmentation for a patient seeking fat-burning/energy on a weight loss program.

How many slim shots do you recommend?

Most patients get 1-2 per week for the first few weeks to help re-establish normal hormone levels and help fight high stress.

How will skinny shots help me?

Often people feel increased energy immediately after the shot; sometimes, they feel better over time. It is a stress fighter and supports key functions of the liver that sometimes require large amounts of nutrients that can be severely depleted after years of stress and diet faults.

What is IN the Slim Shot?

It is filled with a liquid version of liver-specific nutrients, amino acids, and vitamins, including B-1, B-6, B12, supercharged hydroxocobalamin, adenosine monophosphate (AMP), methionine, choline, and inositol. These "fat-burning" lipotropic agents are substances that facilitate the breakdown and metabolism of fats.

Are they natural ingredients?

Yes, they are natural ingredients of the highest quality and are made by a pharmacy.

Will they work with my weight loss program?

We believe Slim Shots can help make any weight loss program more effective. We feel that liver nutrient support is a key missing component to most weight loss programs. Is there an oral form? No. Slim Shots are in an injectable form to reduce the loss of potency in the digestive process.

How much do Slim Shots cost?

Slim shots / skinny shots cost $40.00 per injection
