Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy Q&A

What are bioidentical hormones?

Your hormones control almost every body function, from your metabolism to your sex drive. Unfortunately, as you age, your body’s hormone production slows, creating a deficit in your body’s hormonal needs. Bioidentical hormones are custom-made replacement hormones designed to provide the precise hormones your body needs for optimal body function.

At Orange Blossom Women’s Group, the team offers BioTE bioidentical hormones. BioTE hormones are plant-based and don’t include any synthetic hormones. The custom-made hormones are provided in subdermal pellets, which slowly and consistently release hormones to address hormonal imbalances and your related symptoms.

Why would I need bioidentical hormone therapy?

While menopause and perimenopause are the most well-known causes of hormonal imbalances, you may also need bioidentical hormones to address low testosterone, insulin resistance, adrenal and thyroid disorders, and osteoporosis. Bioidentical hormone therapy is customized to meet the needs of each patient.

Some of the signs that indicate a hormonal imbalance include:

  • Mood swings and irritability
  • Depression and anxiety
  • Unexplained weight loss or gain
  • Muscle mass loss
  • Hot flashes and night sweats
  • Sleep disruptions
  • Decreased libido
  • Vaginal atrophy

In addition to relieving these frustrating and disruptive symptoms, bioidentical hormones improve your skin thickness and elasticity to reduce signs of aging. Bioidentical hormones can also reduce your risk of other health conditions such as cataracts, diabetes, and tooth loss.

What happens during bioidentical hormone therapy?

Bioidentical hormone therapy begins with a comprehensive exam including blood tests at Orange Blossom Women’s Group. The team assesses your hormone levels and the severity of your hormone imbalance-related symptoms. If your symptoms are hormone-related, they prescribe custom-made BioTE bioidentical hormone therapy pellets.

When your prescription is ready, your provider injects the rice-sized hormone pellets under the skin of your upper buttock, where they begin to release hormones into your system. You have several follow-up appointments after your initial injection for the team to monitor your symptoms and hormone levels. Depending on how you respond to therapy, they may need to fine-tune your prescription to replenish your hormone levels and relieve your symptoms.

If you’re troubled by signs of aging and other symptoms of hormonal imbalance, call Orange Blossom Women’s Group or schedule an appointment online today to learn more about BioTE hormone pellets and how they can enhance your wellness.
