natural hormone replacement therapy

Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Pellet Therapy

Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Pellet Therapy is a natural hormone replacement therapy for peri- and postmenopausal women.  Hormone replacement therapy has been recommended by the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists for the short-term treatment of menopausal symptoms.

Benefits of Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy Pellets

There are several benefits to Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT).

Recognizable to Your Body

The first benefit to the BHRT pellets we prescribe is that the hormones within them are bioidentical, meaning that they are structurally the same as naturally occurring human hormones.

Natural & Plant-Derived

The second benefit to the BHRT pellets we prescribe is that the hormones within them are found in nature and are plant-derived. This implies that the hormones used in BHRT pellet therapy for women are more natural and may have fewer negative interactions within the body.

Long-lasting & Released Over Time

Another benefit of pellet therapy is that the pellets remain within the body and consistently provide the dosing that the body requires. This contrasts with other hormone replacement therapy administrations in which the hormone is provided in spurts, such as pills and creams, resulting in a roller coaster effect of relief to discomfort for the patient.

Conditions Improved by BHRT

There are many conditions that may be able to be improved in women through pellet therapy. Studies have shown, improvements in menopause, depression, anxiety, low sex drive, osteoporosis, heart disease, PMS and many other conditions.

Frequently asked questions

What are the causes of hormone imbalance in women?

Hormone imbalance in women can occur as part of the natural aging process in women 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.

How do BHRT pellets work?

Hormone pellets release bio-identical hormones into the bloodstream continuously. These are tiny pellets just under the skin, typically placed in the upper hip. BHRT pellets are smaller than a grain of rice and are consistently effective for between 3 and 6 months.

Pellets can be inserted in a few minutes and are virtually painless. Within 7-10 days after your pellet insertion, Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) begins to work and BioTE Medical patients are back to their active lifestyles. They are natural, last 3-6 months and are available for you to try today.

Are there any drawbacks to BHRT?

The only drawback of pellet therapy is that there may be an upfront cost associated with the treatment. This is because many insurance carriers do not cover BHRT pellet therapy. It is possible that insurance carriers do not provide coverage for BHRT because it is a natural treatment which cannot be patented and therefore cannot be approved by the FDA.
