Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) First Steps
If you think you might benefit from hormone replacement therapy, the first step is to consult with your local Certified BioTE Medical Provider. Our providers will determine if you are eligible for BHRT, and if you are, we’ll schedule an appointment for the first insertion. BioTE also requires a comprehensive blood panel, which you can discuss with your medical provider. After all of these steps are complete, you are ready for hormone pellet insertion.
The Pellet Insertion Method
During your in-office visit, which only takes a few minutes, you will be brought into the exam room, and the insertion site, usually somewhere around the upper buttocks, will be numbed. A small incision will then be made, the hormone pellet inserted, and the insertion site covered with a small bandage. The pellet will dissolve and your body will absorb the contents, leaving nothing behind. Each patient’s symptoms are unique, and your journey will be customized to fit your specific needs. Some patients see improvement in as little as two to four weeks, but full optimization can take up to six months.
After the pellet-insertion process is complete, it’s best to eliminate lower body exercise for a short period of time. Walking is OK, but more strenuous exercise is not recommended. Showers are permitted, but bathtubs, hot tubs, and swimming are to be avoided. After the bandage is removed, you can resume your normal exercise and swimming routines. You deserve to feel better no matter what your age, so if you’re tired of dealing with the symptoms of hormone imbalance and want to take action, reach out to your local Certified BioTE Medical Provider today.
