Hormone Therapy For Women

Bio-identical Hormone Pellet Therapy

Bio-identical Hormone Pellet Therapy uses hormones derived from natural plant sources to replicate the body’s normal hormonal levels.

Patients have found that Bio-Identical Hormone Therapy with Hormone Pellets is extremely effective. These hormone implants, placed under the skin, consistently release small, physiologic doses of hormones, providing optimal therapy.

Unlike typical oral and transdermal forms of hormone therapy–which produce “roller coaster” hormone levels, resulting in mood and energy fluctuations for the patient–BioTE Medical Hormone Pellet Therapy is the only method of hormone therapy that provides sustained hormone levels throughout the day, for up to 4 to 6 months, without the drawbacks of synthetic.

Why Menopausal Hormone Therapy Is Good

For postmenopausal women, hormone therapy is great because it helps to manage the side effects of menopause symptoms as well as prevent bone loss and risk of fracture. It is easy to treat menopause symptoms with hormone therapy.

This is also known as hormone replacement therapy or HRT.

Why Bio-Identical Hormone Pellet Therapy is Better than Estrogen Therapy

There are two types of hormone therapy: systemic hormone therapy and low-dose vaginal products are the main types but they can come with many health risks and side effects, such as:

Risk of Breast Cancer

Menopausal hormone therapy, like systemic estrogen therapy, can lead to breast cancer. 80% of breast cancers are estrogen-receptive and there it

Heart Disease

Heart attacks and strokes can occur from estrogen replacement therapy and other problems.

Endometrial cancer

HRT can increase the risk of endometrial cancer for women who still have a uterus, and that is why progesterone is given to lower that risk.

Blood Clots

Women who take hormone replacement therapy like estrogen therapy can end up with their blood clotting, which can lead to serious problems. Blood clots can cause damage to the body’s organs and lead to strokes, heart attacks, and even death.

Uterine Cancer

Estrogen therapy can also lead to uterine cancer and needs to be taken with progesterone to lower the risks.

That is why hormone replacement therapy HRT can be a huge risk factor but it hugely depends on three factors:

Medical history AND FAMILY medical history

Your medical history and that of your family can tell your doctor a lot about whether your risks of complications are high. Usually, if you have already suffered from the aforementioned problems then you have a higher chance of having these conditions. The same goes for your family.

Age and Combined hormone therapy

If you start estrogen therapy to relieve symptoms at age sixty or older or ten years after you hit menopause, then your risks are higher. And the risks are lower if you are less than sixty or started estrogen therapy within ten years of hitting menopause to treat menopause symptoms.

If you are only taking estrogen, then your risks are higher than they would be if you were taking both estrogen and progesterone. This is called combination therapy.


Most frequent questions and answers

Pellet insertion is a relatively simple in-office procedure done under local anesthesia It takes an average of 4-10 minutes in total. The pellets are inserted subcutaneously (under the fatty lining of skin) in the upper buttocks through a very small incision. The incision is then closed with sterile tape strips. Patients should not be able to feel the implants under the skin. Hormone implants placed under the skin release small, physiologic doses of hormones, keeping a patient’s levels in therapeutic range until the next pellet procedure typically every 4 months.

In studies, when compared to conventional hormone replacement therapy, pellets have been shown to be extremely effective for relief of menopausal symptoms, maintenance of bone density, restoration of sleep patterns, and improvement in sex drive, libido, sexual response and performance, relief of depression, anxiety, irritability, mood swings, and many others. Pellet implants have been used to treat migraine and menstrual headaches. It also helps with vaginal dryness, incontinence, urinary urgency, and frequency. Bio-identical Hormone Pellets have been shown to decrease body fat, and a greater capacity for losing weight. Moreover, hundreds of studies show natural testosterone to be HIGHLY PREVENTATIVE against breast cancer, osteoporosis, and Alzheimer’s dementia to name a few.


A comprehensive panel of testing is performed. We use these results to then customize your hormone levels to optimal levels to experience all the protective benefits while gaining the great feeling of optimal wellness! Each customized hormone pellet insertion lasts between 4-6 months in women depending on your activity level. A complete thyroid panel and vitamin D3 level is performed as well. These act in synergy with the hormone pellet and may also be supplemented depending on your levels.

It is important to optimize all of these levels to achieve the maximum benefits. Since the release of hormone is regulated by your cardiac output, patients that are very active may require more frequent insertions than a patent with a more sedentary lifestyle. Most patients are able to tell when their hormone levels start to decline! Testing may be performed at various intervals to maintain optimal hormone levels.
