Hormone Therapy FAQ's

  • What Should I Do Before I Schedule an Appointment?

    No fasting is required in advance of the insertion.

  • What Should I Do Before the Insertion?

    One week before the insertion, if possible, stop all NSAIDs (aspirin, ibuprofen, acetaminophen, naproxen sodium, etc.). No fasting in advance of the insertion is required.

  • What Test is Required Before the Insertion?

    At a minimum, BioTE requires a comprehensive blood panel which you can discuss with your Certified BioTE Medical Provider.

  • What Happens During the In-Office Insertion?

    During the in-office visit, which only takes a few minutes, patients are brought into the exam room, and the insertion site is numbed. The most common site of insertion is the upper buttocks. A small incision is then made for pellet insertion. Once the pellet is inserted, the insertion site is covered with a small bandage.

  • What Happens During the Week Following the Insertion?

    After pellet insertion, it's best to eliminate lower body exercise. You can walk, but extraneous activity is not recommended. Swimming, hot tubs, and bathtubs are to be avoided; however, showers are permitted. After removal of the bandage, normal activity may resume.

  • How Often is Pellet Insertion Necessary?

    As each patient’s symptoms are unique, so is each patient’s path to hormone optimization. Your journey will be customized to fit your specific needs. It takes more than one to two weeks for your hormones to get out of balance, so expect it to take time for your symptoms to resolve.

  • What Happens to Pellets After Insertion?

    Since the pellets are bioidentical and contain nothing more than the hormones your body naturally produces, the pellets are completely dissolved and absorbed, leaving nothing behind.
