Hormone Replacement Therapy

Hormone Replacement Therapy

for Women
Do you feel a lack of drive, motivation, and energy, along with mental fog, mood swings, sluggishness, and weight gain? These symptoms could indicate low levels of testosterone, estrogen, and/or progesterone. Hormone replacement therapy (HRT) is a viable solution to manage these symptoms related to hormone imbalances and menopause in women.
5 visits/year
Labs will be ordered at the initial visit to ensure proper dosing and outcomes. Once reviewed, the first pellet is placed, which takes about 10-15 minutes. Pellets are placed every 3 months for optimal benefits.
A local numbing shot is administered prior to the pellet placement, which normally causes some stinging. You may feel pressure during pellet placement, as well. Overall, the procedure is very well tolerated.
With pellets, you’ll need to avoid baths and hot tubs for 2 days and avoid vigorously scrubbing the site for a week. You will also need to avoid heavy lifting, exercise, or vigorous activity for 3-5 days. The site may be uncomfortable for up to 2-3 weeks.
2 weeks+
Since HRT is a customized treatment, patients will experience improvements at different times. On average, most patients report feeling better about 2 - 4 weeks after pellet insertion.
About BHRT

Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) involves using “bioidentical hormones” to supplement your body's natural hormone levels when they are insufficient for optimal health. Hormones act as messengers, instructing various body parts on how and when to function. They oversee nearly all bodily functions. When hormone levels are low or imbalanced, it can have extensive effects on your health and well-being. BHRT is commonly used in women to alleviate perimenopause and menopause symptoms. However, hormone imbalances can arise at any age, including in women as young as their 20s.

Benefits of BHRT for Women

When a woman experiences hormonal imbalance, hormone replacement therapy can potentially alleviate a variety of physical and emotional symptoms. BHRT addresses the root cause of symptoms, not just the symptoms themselves, offering relief.

BHRT has been shown to:

  • Lessen hot flashes and night sweats
  • Relieve vaginal symptoms, such as dryness, itching, burning, and painful intercourse
  • Improve sleep
  • Increase energy
  • Ease an overactive bladder and other urinary issues
  • Relieve joint aches and pains
  • Protect your bones to prevent future fractures
  • Stabilize your mood, improve depression and anxiety
  • Lower your risk of heart disease and type 2 diabetes
  • Reduce the irritability and brain fog that goes with insomnia
  • Enhance your memory

In addition to regulating menstruation, estrogen can impact a woman’s urinary tract, heart and blood vessels, bones, breasts, skin, hair, mucous membranes, pelvic muscles, thyroid, and brain. New research is demonstrating the protective effect of estrogen on many organs and systems throughout a woman’s life. That’s why the benefits of female BHRT may also include improvements in the symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease, metabolic syndrome, Parkinson’s, PTSD, psoriasis, scleroderma, lupus, multiple sclerosis (MS), and other chronic conditions.

What is Hormone Pellet Therapy?

Pellet implants are a unique way to get the hormones used to treat hormone imbalances into the body. In a simple, quick office procedure, your doctor inserts a prescribed number of hormone pellets under the skin near the hip. These pellets will release steady, small amounts of hormone directly into your bloodstream for several months.
