What is Menopause?
Menopause is a significant source of hormonal imbalance in women. This is specifically because menopause is the time in a woman’s life when her ovaries stop the production of hormones.
What Are Normal Symptoms of Menopause?
Even normal symptoms of menopause are difficult to bear. These symptoms include hot flashes, vaginal dryness, and sleep disturbances. The symptoms of menopause can cause depression and anxiety which are often intolerable and tremendously reduce quality of life.
What Are the Phases of Menopause?
There are three phases of menopause including perimenopause, menopause, and postmenopause. Symptoms in perimenopause are often much more severe than the ones during menopause and postmenopause.
What is BHRT?
Bio-identical hormone replacement therapy or BHRT is a natural way for women to regain the vitality of their youth by supplementing the hormones that diminish during menopause. Rather than conventional hormone replacement therapy using synthetic animal-derived hormones (such as the pregnant horse urine used in commonly prescribed Premarin), bio-identical hormone replacement therapy uses naturally derived hormones from plants. These hormones most closely resemble naturally occurring human hormones and are free from unnatural chemicals, unlike the FDA approved replacement hormones prescribed by practitioners.
What is BHRT Pellet Therapy?
BHRT pellet therapy from BioTE Medical involves bio-identical hormones derived from plants. Pellets are built to fit every patient's individual hormonal needs, determined by a series of saliva tests, serum tests, and blood tests. BHRT pellets are custom compounded in pharmacies in the United States.
What is the Process of BHRT Pellet Insertion Like?
First, find a BioTE provider. If your provider is not listed, nominate your provider to become BioTE certified. Then, schedule an office visit with your BioTE provider to test your current hormone levels. Based on your comprehensive consultation and thorough blood work panel, your provider will determine if you are a candidate for BioTE pellet therapy. Then a quick follow up appointment will be scheduled for your custom pellet therapy insertion.
How Can BHRT Help Menopausal Women?
Rather than taking pills or other methods of hormonal administration that may not offer consistent hormonal doses, BHRT pellets offer consistent doses throughout the day. This relieves women experiencing menopause from the rollercoaster effects of hormones with less consistent administration. Learn more about BHRT pellets from your local BioTE Medical provider today!
