Bio-identical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) is the use of supplemental doses from a natural plant source. These hormones have an identical chemical structure to what we naturally produce ourselves.
Studies have shown that BioTE pellets can provide relief from menopausal symptoms and maintain bone density. There’s also evidence that shows improvements to sleep patterns and sex drive, sexual response and performance. Additionally, the pellets have the potential to reduce depression, anxiety, irritability, and mood swings.
Pellets also aid in the treatment of migraines and menopausal headaches.You can also expect increased vaginal moisture, help with incontinence and urine flow. Natural testosterone has been shown to be highly preventive against breast cancer as well as osteoporosis or Alzheimer’s dementia.
BioTE® Medical’s hormone pellet therapy side effects are minimal when compared to other hormone delivery methods. That’s because BHRT pellet therapy delivers consistent amounts of hormones 24 hours a day. Unlike other forms of hormone therapy, there are few side effects. Two percent of patients experience mild acne or facial hair, and less than 1% experience hair thinning. All of these mild side effects are easily treatable.
This varies from person to person, but typically 3-4 months.
BHRT pellet therapy is injected subcutaneously, resting beneath the skin. This injection eliminates the “roller coaster” effect that often accompanies BHRT creams.
The cost of hormone pellet therapy differs based on your individual treatment plan and needs. The pellets and insertion are not covered by insurance. Generally, the BHRT pellet therapy cost is competitive with other hormone therapy delivery methods.
Bio-identical therapy has had great success with hormone related headaches.
