Mood swings, hot flashes, or irregular or absent periods are indications that estrogen levels have dropped in a woman. Certified BioTE® providers offer bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) using pellets that may relieve these symptoms. Many patients report that the BioTE method of estrogen pellet therapy has helped treat the effects of menopause.
A certified BioTE provider is trained to determine the ideal estrogen pellet plan for a patient based on a consultation and extensive lab work. Then, the hormone pellet will be inserted through a small incision in the upper buttocks that is covered with a small bandage. Once inserted, the bioidentical pellets will dissolve and be absorbed by the body.
Bioidentical estrogen pellets use hormones that are molecularly similar to those found within the human body. Bioidentical estrogen pellets may help reduce unwelcome side effects. Many patients have reported that bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) can be used to address hot flashes, low mood, menstrual migraines, poor bone density, and improve heart health.
Hormone levels in women drop most dramatically during perimenopause (immediately before menopause) and during menopause. If a woman is going through menopause, contacting a certified BioTE provider and talking about estrogen pellet therapy may be the next best step to help relieve symptoms. Bioidentical estrogen hormone pellets may be used to effectively help treat symptoms and avoid negative side effects. BioTE’s method of estrogen replacement therapy through pellets may help patients return to better health
