What is Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy?

Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) is a prescription alternative to conventional hormone replacement therapy (conjugated estrogens, medroxyprogesterone, etc.) Bio-identical medications are plant-derived, and chemically changed in a laboratory until they are identical to what your body would naturally produce. BHRT is customizable; in other words, it can be adjusted to fit your needs, unlike conventional HRT, which has a few standard dosage strengths.

Patients have found that bio identical hormone therapy with hormone pellets is extremely effective.  These hormone implants, placed under the skin, consistently release small, physiologic doses of hormones, providing optimal therapy.

Unlike typical oral and transdermal forms of hormone therapy--which produce "roller coaster" hormone levels, resulting in mood and energy fluctuations for the patient--BioTE Medical Hormone Pellet Therapy is the only method of hormone therapy that provides sustained hormone levels throughout the day, for up to 4 to 6 months, without the drawbacks of synthetic.

Questions about Hormonal pellets

How does pellet hormone therapy work?

Pellet insertion is a relatively simple in-office procedure done under local anesthesia It takes an average of 4-10 minutes in total.  The pellets are inserted
subcutaneously (under the fatty lining of skin) in the upper buttocks through a very small incision.  The incision is then closed with sterile tape strips.   Patients should not be able to feel the implants under the skin.  Hormone implants placed under the skin release small, physiologic doses of hormones, keeping a patient's levels in therapeutic range until the next pellet procedure.

Is the Bio-Identical Hormone Pellet Formulated Just for me?  

A comprehensive panel of testing is performed.  We use these results to then customize your hormone levels to optimal levels to experience all the protective benefits while gaining the great feeling of optimal wellness!  Each customized hormone pellet lasts between 4-6 months in women depending on your activity level.  A complete thyroid panel and vitamin D3 level is performed.  These act in synergy with the hormone pellet and may also be supplemented depending on your levels.  It is important to optimize all of these levels to achieve the maximum benefits.  Since the release of hormone is regulated by your cardiac output, patients that are very active may require more frequent insertions than a patent with a more sedentary lifestyle.  Most patients are able to tell when their hormone levels start to decline!  Testing may be performed at various intervals to maintain optimal hormone levels.
