What Is the Goal of Hormone Optimization Therapy in Women?
When female hormone levels are balanced, an individual may experience a greatly improved quality of life. In addition to feeling great, studies have shown that balancing hormones in women may be able to help relieve uncomfortable conditions and symptoms associated with hormone imbalance.
What Is Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy?
The Biote Method of bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) for women may begin to balance the female hormones of a patient in as few as two to four weeks. Biote providers tailor each patient’s dosing to their unique needs and hormone levels. BHRT uses bioidentical hormones, which closely mimic the hormones normally present within the body. BHRT is designed to be biologically identical to our body’s hormones.
What Can a Patient Expect From BHRT?
While results may differ, the process for considering, obtaining, monitoring, and continuing BHRT is typically the same for all patients. A new patient will normally schedule a consultation. To consider the patient’s candidacy, the provider will request comprehensive hormone testing and lab work. The next appointment will be to review the test results and determine if the patient is a candidate. If so, they can get a BHRT pellet inserted the same day or on their next visit.
