What is BHRT?

Bio-identical hormone replacement therapy or BHRT is a natural way to overcome hormone deficiencies and hormone imbalance at any age. These hormones are delivered in the form of small pellets, which are custom compounded in a pharmacy within the United States. The pellets are placed under the skin during a brief office procedure.  BioTE® is the largest provider of bioidentical hormone pellet therapy in the United States. BioTE® pellets are individually dosed based on your hormone blood panel results and begin to work within 7-10 days.

What are the benefits of BHRT pellets?

Bio-identical pellets are structurally the same as naturally occurring human hormones. They are derived from plants and are not synthetic. The pellets release a consistent, constant dose of hormone. This contrasts other hormone replacement therapy options (such as pills or creams) in which the hormone is released in spurts, resulting in a rollercoaster effect.

What are the signs and symptoms of hormone imbalance in women?

Women may describe hot flashes, vaginal dryness (or even painful intercourse), little or no sex drive (libido), mood swings, depression/anxiety, night sweats, weight gain and sleeplessness.  Low testosterone levels alone (even 10-15 years BEFORE menopause) can cause fatigue, mood swings, irritability, memory problems, trouble sleeping, trouble concentrating, low libido and decreased muscle strength.
