BioTE and Hormone Replacement Therapy

When you’re going through the biggest transition of your life, also known as menopause, you don’t want to add more symptoms to the mix. However, that’s exactly what traditional hormone replacement therapy can do. Fortunately, there’s a better way with BioTE® natural hormone replacements at Eagles Landing OBGYN. BioTE is bioidentical, meaning it’s chemically identical to your natural hormones. That makes it a perfect fit for a comfortable menopause transition.

BioTE Q & A

BioTE is a natural hormone replacement alternative to oral hormones, hormone patches, or hormone creams. BioTE is the top choice for hormone replacement at Eagles Landing OBGYN for a few important reasons.
BioTE is bioidentical, which means it’s a plant-derived molecular duplicate of the hormones your body produces naturally. That makes BioTE the far more natural option, as synthetic hormones are typically derived from animals.

Additionally, the consistent release of BioTE means that you can avoid the hormone highs and lows often associated with synthetic hormone replacement therapy.

BioTE can help relieve many of the common symptoms of hormone depletion during menopause, including:

  • Hot flashes
  • Night sweats
  • Breast tenderness
  • Mood swings
  • Depression
  • Insomnia
  • Painful intercourse
  • Reduced libido

BioTE, when combined with any necessary lifestyle adjustments, can relieve most or even all of your hormone depletion symptoms during menopause.

Your Eagles Landing OBGYN provider numbs a small area on your hip and then creates a small incision there. BioTE is contained in tiny, rice-sized pellets, which your Eagles Landing OBGYN provider inserts in the incision.

The BioTE pellet insertion takes only a few seconds. After that, no stitches are needed. Your doctor places a small bandage over the incision and you’re done. You don’t need to do anything, other than recommended lifestyle changes, until your next appointment!

It can vary, but many women start to enjoy symptom relief in as little as 2-4 weeks. However, keep in mind that it might take up to six months before you get the maximum benefit from your BioTE treatment. Just as it took some time for your hormone levels to plummet, it takes some time to rebuild them to the right levels for optimal symptom relief.

Longevity is unique to the patient. Most patients enjoy 3-6 months of consistent hormone replacement with each BioTE treatment. Your provider works with you to determine the right schedule for your follow-up treatments so your hormone levels can stay even.
