Hormone Therapy Q & A

What is BioTE therapy?

BioTE hormones are delivered via pellets inserted just under the skin. The pellets provide a consistent dose of the hormones, avoiding the “roller coaster” effect that other methods such as pills and creams can lead to.

Bioidentical hormones are derived from natural plant ingredients and mimic the chemical makeup of your physiology. This means there are no synthetics, chemicals, or fillers with your hormone therapy. Your body effectively uses bioidentical hormones because they are a perfect match for you.

Who is a good candidate for hormone replacement therapy with BioTE?

Hormone replacement therapy is especially helpful to women transitioning through menopause. As your fertility ends, so does your menstrual cycle, and your levels of the sex hormones estrogen and progesterone drop. 

This causes uncomfortable symptoms, including hot flashes, weight gain, mental fog, and low libido. With BioTE hormone therapy, your hormone balance is restored along with your quality of life.

Some women may also experience hormone imbalances due to stress or right after childbirth. BioTE can help in these instances too.

What symptoms are addressed with BioTE hormone therapy?

Symptoms associated with perimenopause (the years prior to menopause) and menopause can be reduced or resolved with hormone therapy, including:

  • Hot flashes
  • Breast tenderness
  • Mood swings
  • Night sweats
  • Changes in libido
  • Painful intercourse
  • Mood swings
  • Insomnia
  • Depression and memory problems

These symptoms are not just a rite of passage to endure as a woman. You can find relief by contacting the Center for Women’s Health today.

How long is hormone therapy administered?

The length of your treatment depends on your circumstances and symptoms. Patients can turn to BioTE-certified Drs. Fagbohun, Rios, and Lu at Center for Women’s Health for their hormone therapy treatment. Your provider monitors you during BioTE treatment closely to make sure it’s working properly and not causing unwanted side effects. 

You continue the therapy for only as long as you need it — generally not longer than five years. Your doctor tapers you off your hormone therapy until you no longer need it.
