Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy Q & A

What is bioidentical hormone replacement therapy?

As you move through major reproductive system changes, such as menopause, your body’s hormone production shifts. A decrease in the major female sex hormones estrogen and progesterone cause many of the symptoms women experience during these stages.

BioTE hormone replacement therapy helps women who are experiencing disruptive symptoms due to a decrease in reproductive hormones. BioTE uses bioidentical hormones – all-natural hormones that are structurally identical to the hormones your body produces naturally.

How is bioidentical hormone replacement therapy administered?

Dr. Daley at WomanKind OB/GYN, PA, implants BioTE pellets just under the surface of your skin. They deliver a steady stream of hormones to your system, providing consistent, reliable support to relieve common menopause symptoms that disrupt your quality of life.

Why should I consider bioidentical hormone replacement therapy?

Menopause occurs when you go one year without a menstrual cycle. As you move toward this reproductive shift, you may experience numerous issues related to changes in your hormone production. Symptoms that suggest you suffer a hormone imbalance include:

  • Hot flashes and night sweats
  • Mood changes
  • Vaginal dryness
  • Sleep disturbances
  • Reduced sex drive
  • Depression and anxiety

Some women experience minimal symptoms during the menopausal transition, but if you find your hormonal changes make it difficult for you to work or engage in normal activities, seek out care from WomanKind OB/GYN, PA.

Women may also benefit from bioidentical hormone replacement therapy in the postnatal period or during cancer treatment, which can trigger early menopause. Dr. Daley reviews your personal and family medical history and evaluates your overall health and current symptoms to determine if BioTE pellets are the right bioidentical hormone replacement therapy for you.

Bioidentical hormones are all-natural and contain no chemicals or animal-derived ingredients. Your body recognizes the bioidentical hormone structure and uses them most efficiently to rebalance your system and ease symptoms.

How can bioidentical hormone therapy treat PCOS?

Some women with PCOS, or polycystic ovary syndrome, find bioidentical hormone therapy helpful. PCOS means you have a higher level of androgens, or male sex hormones, than normal, which affects your appearance and fertility. BioTE hormones, along with diet and lifestyle changes, can help restore your hormone balance to alleviate symptoms such as:

  • Unexplained weight gain
  • Irregular periods
  • Male-pattern hair growth

Not every woman is a good candidate for bioidentical hormone replacement therapy. If you have certain pre-existing conditions or aren’t able to tolerate hormones, you may decline hormone replacement therapy.
