Hormone Replacement Therapy Q & A
Who needs hormone replacement therapy?
As women transition toward menopause, your fertility ends and production of hormones such as estrogen and progesterone slow down considerably. The fluctuation in hormones triggers symptoms including:
- Hot flashes and night sweats
- Depression and anxiety
- Mood changes
- Vaginal dryness
- Sleep disturbances
- Reduced sex drive
- Weight gain
These symptoms can interfere with your quality of life and ability to work and engage in other normal activities.
Men aren’t free of the effects of hormones. As testosterone levels drop in middle age, they experience:
- Low sex drive
- Erectile dysfunction
- Reduced muscle and increased fat
- Mood changes and fatigue
- Brain fog
Men with heart disease, diabetes, and high cholesterol often have chronically low testosterone levels, too.
If you suffer these symptoms as a woman or man, call HealthStone Primary Care Partners to learn how BioTE® therapy can help.
What is BioTE hormone pellet therapy?
BioTE hormone pellet therapy is a treatment for women or men experiencing disruptive symptoms related to an imbalance of hormones. BioTE consists of bioidentical hormones, all natural versions that are structurally identical to the hormones your body makes naturally.
BioTE hormones come in a pellet form that is implanted under the surface of your skin. This delivery method provides a steady stream of hormones so you achieve more balanced levels all day. The supplemental hormones reduce or eliminate uncomfortable symptoms associated with menopause and low testosterone.
Who is a candidate for BioTE hormone therapy?
The medical professionals at HealthStone Primary Care Partners evaluate your personal and family medical history to determine if you’re a good candidate for pellet therapy. Hormone therapy isn’t right for everyone as some people don’t tolerate hormone therapy well or have pre-existing health risks that make hormone therapy impossible.
If pellet therapy is for you, BioTE pellets are inserted just under your skin in a simple in-office procedure. The pellets may be replaced regularly and dosage adjusted depending on how your body responds to treatment.
