Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy Q & A

What is bioidentical hormone therapy?

Bioidentical hormone therapy supplements your natural hormone levels with bioidentical hormones to address hormone imbalances.

Hormones are chemical messengers responsible for controlling many of your body's functions. When your hormones aren’t balanced, you can experience a wide range of symptoms that range from mild to severe.

The Integrative Health Matters team uses BioTE® bioidentical hormone pellets to treat hormone imbalances in both men and women. Imbalances can occur as you get older, and your body slows down its natural hormone production.

For women, this can occur during the transition to menopause - the time when your period ends for good, and you can no longer have children. In men, the decline in testosterone hormones starts after age 30.


Why would I need bioidentical hormone therapy?

You may be a candidate for BioTE bioidentical hormone therapy if you’re experiencing symptoms of an age-related hormone imbalance.

Women in menopause and men with low testosterone can experience symptoms like:

  • Irritability
  • Depression
  • Weight gain
  • Chronic fatigue
  • Thinning hair
  • Hot flashes and sweating
  • Loss of sex drive

For women, a hormone imbalance can also cause heavy periods, vaginal dryness, and pain with sex. Men might experience erectile dysfunction (ED), growth of breast tissue, and loss of muscle mass.

If you have any of these symptoms that interfere with your quality of life, you should schedule a diagnostic evaluation at Integrative Health Matters. The team offers blood testing on-site to assess your hormone levels and determine if you’re a candidate for bioidentical hormone replacement therapy.


What can I expect during bioidentical hormone therapy?

The BioTE hormones that the Integrative Health Matters team uses in your treatment are structurally similar to the hormones your body makes naturally and come from plant materials.

The hormones are in pellet form. The team places the pellet under the surface of your skin. Over time, the pellet releases a continuous stream of hormones into your body to optimize your hormone levels.

The supplemental hormones may provide long-lasting relief of your symptoms. The team continues to monitor your hormone levels and can replace the pellets as needed to reduce the chances of symptoms returning.

Typically, men need replacement pellets every 4-6 months, and women can expect to receive a pellet every 3-5 months.

If you have symptoms of a hormone imbalance, schedule a diagnostic evaluation at Integrative Health Matters today.
