What is BHRT?

Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy involves the use of hormones that are structurally identical to the hormones naturally produced by the human body. Unlike synthetic hormones, bio-identical hormones are derived from plant sources and precisely replicate the molecular structure of hormones such as estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone.

Conditions Treated with BHRT:

Hormonal Imbalance: Hormonal imbalances can manifest in various ways, impacting both physical and mental well-being. BHRT can be tailored to address conditions related to:

  • Menopause: Alleviate symptoms like hot flashes, mood swings, and sleep disturbances.
  • Andropause: Counteract the effects of declining testosterone levels in men, improving energy and vitality.
  • Perimenopause: Manage hormonal fluctuations and associated symptoms.
  • Thyroid Disorders: Support thyroid function and address symptoms of hypothyroidism or hyperthyroidism.

Reproductive Health: BHRT can also play a crucial role in managing conditions related to reproductive health, including:

  • Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS): Regulate hormonal imbalances contributing to PCOS symptoms.
  • Endometriosis: Alleviate pain and discomfort associated with endometrial tissue growth outside the uterus.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I know if I’m a candidate for hormone pellets?

We will begin with a Symptom Check List and a lab slip to have blood work done which will determine your hormone levels. Once your doctor reviews and determines whether you are a candidate, we will schedule an appointment for a consultation and insertion.

Is blood work done before each treatment?

No, only initially and 4 to 6 weeks after initial treatment to set your dosing. You may have it done again if there are significant changes to your weight, lifestyle, etc. Also, a full lab is suggested annually.

What are the pellets made from?

They are plant-based (Wild Yams, etc.) The pellets are derived from yams and are bio-identical, meaning they are the exact replication of what the body makes in contrast to synthetic hormones.

How long will the hormone pellet treatment last?

For 3-6 months, depending on the person. Everyone is different so it depends on how you feel and what the Dr. determines is right for you. The absorption rate is based on cardiac output. 

Is the therapy FDA-approved?

The ingredients in the pellets are all FDA-approved. The distribution of the pellet is FDA-regulated. The procedure is not FDA-approved, based on individualized dosing. Every day physicians prescribe off-label non-FDA approved products and therapies that they deem safe and effective for the patients. Compounded drugs are not FDA-approved because they are individualized doses. There is no FDA approval for a bio‐identical drug.

Also, consider the side effects of drugs (half of the TV commercial lists the potential side effects) and those drugs ARE FDA approved!

How are they administered?

Your practitioner will implant the pellets in the dermis of the upper hip or above the belt. A small incision is made, and the pellets are inserted. No stitch is required.

Does it matter if I’m on birth control?

No, your provider can determine what your hormone needs are even if you are on birth control.

Are there any side effects?

There are no serious side effects. Some possible nuisance side effects, hair growth, or acne in moderation. Both are very treatable. 

What if I’m already using other HRT treatments like creams, patches, or pills?

This is an easy transition. Your provider will be able to determine your needs even though you may be currently taking these other forms of HRT. We also supply these other modalities if your patients prefer.

What if I’ve had breast cancer?

Breast cancer survivors and/or those who have a history of breast cancer in their family may still be a candidate; however, this is to be determined by the healthcare provider. You should schedule a consultation with your physician. Bio-Identical Hormones have never been shown to cause an increased risk of breast cancer.
