What Is a Hysterectomy?
A hysterectomy is a procedure in which a woman’s uterus is surgically removed, and there are many surgical options for a woman who must undergo this. In premenopausal, menopausal, perimenopausal, and postmenopausal women, hysterectomies have been a very common surgical option. The side effects of a hysterectomy can affect a woman’s health, but the BioTE method of hormone replacement therapy may help lessen the negative effects. BioTE’s method of BHRT may help return your hormones to their normal levels.
When Is a Hysterectomy Needed?
A hysterectomy may be necessary to alleviate uterine prolapse, abnormal bleeding, gynecological cancer, chronic pelvic discomfort, uterine fibroids, and other conditions. Relieving uterine fibroids is the most typical reason for a hysterectomy. A uterine fibroid is a noncancerous growth that causes lengthened menstrual cycles as well as back discomfort. Hormone therapy may help relieve the symptoms after surgery. Contact a BioTE provider to learn more about our hormone therapy options for possible hysterectomy relief.
What Happens During a Hysterectomy?
A hysterectomy involves the uterus, ovaries, and other adjacent organs being completely or partially removed. There are six different kinds of hysterectomy surgeries, depending on which organs are being removed. Regardless of the type of hysterectomy performed, a patient will likely feel side-effects from no longer being able to fully produce hormones on their own. The BioTE method of bioidentical hormone replacement therapy may help relieve some of the post-surgery symptoms.
What Are the Symptoms of a Hormonal Imbalance After a Hysterectomy?
Severe hormonal imbalance is likely after a hysterectomy. This uncomfortable transition for women can impact a woman’s physical and emotional health. The symptoms of hormonal imbalance after a hysterectomy include hot flashes, night sweats, light bleeding and discharge, and vaginal dryness.
What Is BHRT?
Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy is commonly referred to as BHRT. BHRT therapy involves hormones that are molecularly identical to human hormones. Certified BioTE providers offer bioidentical hormone replacement therapy in the form of pellets inserted subcutaneously, allowing for regular administration of hormone doses.
