Are you gaining or losing weight for no discernable reason? Having trouble sleeping? Are you moody? You may be experiencing a hormone imbalance, and you’re not alone. Hormone imbalances affect up to 80% of women.
Hormones are chemical messengers that regulate many bodily functions such as reproduction, sleep cycles, growth, and metabolism. They are in flux throughout your menstrual cycle, rising and falling as your period comes and goes.
Hormone levels are wildly erratic during certain lifecycle events such as pregnancy and menopause.
Fortunately, if you have troublesome symptoms, there are treatment options that can help balance your hormone levels. BioTe® pellet therapy is one of them.
At the Center for Women’s Health, our board-certified OB/GYN Sharon Breit, MD, and her expert medical team explain how these bioidentical hormones can help you feel like yourself again.
Because hormones like estrogen and progesterone are an essential part of so many vital bodily functions, these imbalances can wreak havoc on your daily life if they’re low or too high.
Some common symptoms of hormone imbalances include:
The treatment options we recommend depend on your specific symptoms and the severity of those symptoms. Dr. Breit can develop a customized treatment plan to help reduce symptoms and improve your quality of life.
BioTe hormone pellet therapy is a type of hormone replacement therapy that uses bioidentical hormones. Bioidentical hormones are chemically identical plant extracts that behave similarly to your body’s natural hormones.
BioTe pellet therapy helps replace hormones in low supply to restore a healthy balance and, subsequently, reduce bothersome symptoms.
One of the benefits of BioTe hormone pellet therapy is that the pellet is injected under the top layer of your skin. It delivers the plant-derived hormones slowly over time so that you don’t have to think about it on a daily basis. Plus, it provides long-term relief, lasting about four to six months.
