BioTE Q&A

BioTE is an advanced type of bioidentical hormone replacement therapy, also known as BHRT. As you age, your natural hormone levels change and can become unbalanced. Hormone replacement therapy can help restore optimal hormonal balance, easing many of the symptoms of menopause or perimenopause.

Bioidentical hormones are created using plant estrogens that share the same chemical makeup as your natural hormones. The hormones used in traditional hormone replacement therapy, in contrast, are made from synthetic sources, including the urine of pregnant horses, and may be more likely to cause adverse reactions.

Bio-TE delivers hormone replacement therapy via tiny pellets implanted just under the surface of your skin. The process takes just a few moments and is virtually painless. You should begin to notice the results within 7-10 days, and the pellets continue releasing hormones for 3-6 months.

Every woman experiences menopause in her own way, but common symptoms include:

  • Hot flashes
  • Night sweats
  • Sleep troubles
  • Mood swings
  • Forgetfulness
  • Reduced sex drive
  • Weight gain

Achieving optimal hormonal balance can address many of these symptoms, helping you to feel more like yourself as you go through the transition of menopause.

In addition to treating common menopause symptoms, bioidentical hormone replacement therapy may help reduce your risk of serious diseases like breast cancer, osteoporosis, Alzheimer’s disease, and endometrial cancer.

BHRT may also offer additional health benefits, including:

  • Reduced risk of depression and anxiety
  • Improved cholesterol levels
  • Improved sleep
  • Better mood, concentration, and memory
  • Higher libido
  • Stronger bone density

Many patients also choose BHRT because it offers an individualized treatment option based on your diagnostic results and specific medical needs. Each prescription is custom-compounded and may be safer and more effective than conventional synthetic hormones.

Most health insurance providers don’t yet cover bioidentical hormone replacement therapy, but the staff at My OB/GYN Specialists can help determine if your coverage includes this treatment approach. Information about cost and payment options is available during your consultation.
