Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy for Men & Women

What are the benefits of bioidentical hormone replacement therapy?

Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy — or BHRT — replenishes your hormones and helps get your health back on track. As a woman, you may benefit from bioidentical hormone replacement therapy if you experience:

  • Thinning or brittle hair 
  • Vaginal dryness 
  • Poor concentration
  • Difficulty sleeping
  • Mood swings
  • Weight gain
  • Low libido
  • Hot Flashes/night sweats

What are the Symptoms of Hormone Imbalance in Men?

Ranging from mild to severe, the symptoms of an imbalance in male hormones are frustrating and can affect your everyday life. Some of the symptoms of hormone imbalance in men include:

  • Fatigue
  • Insomnia
  • Weight Gain
  • Inability to Maintain Muscle Mass
  • Decreased drive or focus
  • Decrease Sexual Performance
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Low Testosterone

HRT is also beneficial for your bones. Because low testosterone and low estrogen often lead to brittle bones (osteoporosis) as you age, by balancing out your hormones, you can preserve your bone tissue and have a lower risk of fractures. In addition, BioTE reduces cardiovascular risks and decreases the risk of dementia, without increasing the risk of blood clots or breast cancer.

How does bioidentical hormone replacement therapy work?

Women's Center for Integrative Health proudly offers female and male hormone replacement therapy with BioTE. This bioidentical hormone treatment contains natural ingredients that function almost identically as the hormones your body produces. No need to worry about unpleasant side effects or surges in hormones.

Hormone replacement therapy with BioTE involves placing pellets under your skin near your hip. Over time, the pellets send out gradual amounts of hormones. 

Your body basically absorbs what it needs when it needs it. Depending on the severity of your hormone imbalance, you just need to come back to Women's Center for Integrative Health two to four times per year for additional pellet implants.

Is it painful to get bioidentical hormone replacement pellets?

Not at all. Dr. Price first numbs the area to decrease discomfort. You may feel a split-second burning sensation during this time, but most patients tolerate this well. Once your targeted area is numb, Dr. Price makes a small incision and inserts your pellets. 

No downtime is necessary. With the exception of avoiding strenuous lower body activities and swimming pools for just a few days, you can return to all of your normal activities. 

When do bioidentical hormone replacement pellets start working?

Immediately! Your hormone levels start stabilizing shortly after getting your BioTE pellets at Women's Center for Integrative Health. Generally within as little as a few weeks, you begin noticing improvements in your symptoms. Most men and women experience optimal results in just six months of starting bioidentical hormone replacement therapy.
