Hormone Replacement Therapy
Frequently Asked Questions
Your first step is coming in for a personal consultation to discuss your symptoms and concerns. During your evaluation process, we will test your blood, performing a comprehensive blood panel to detect any hormonal imbalances or other markers. If bioidentical hormone replacement therapy is indicated, we will tailor your BioTE treatment to your body’s exact needs.
After careful consultation wherein we test your blood and devise a personally-tailored BioTE treatment plan, including customized BHRT pellets, we will administer your treatment. Inserting BHRT pellets is a quick and easy process, taking only minutes in our office.
BioTE BHRT pellets are smaller than a grain of rice, composed of compounded hormones and binders which hold the pellet together. Every batch of BioTE hormones is tested for consistency and purity. After insertion, the pellets dissolve completely over time, leaving nothing behind.
No, BHRT pellet insertion is well-tolerated; it takes only moments to insert the pellets under your skin.
