The stresses of a hormonal imbalance, including depression, decreased libido, and weight gain, can be intolerable. There are natural and highly effective hormone replacement therapies that can help you feel more like yourself again with the use of hormones similar to your own. Sugar Land Medical & Aesthetics offers natural bio-identical hormone replacement therapy in four modalities: oral capsules, creams, injections, and BioTE®pellets
Oral capsules– Natural progesterone hormone is generally given in capsule form. Very rarely, progesterone can also be given in a cream form. Testosterone and synthetic estrogen are not recommended by mouth as they inflame the liver.
Creams – Bio-identical estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone can be taken in cream forms. The effectiveness of creams is related to absorption. Due to this, optimization can be somewhat difficult.
Injections – Testosterone is commonly used in an injectable form in men and occasionally in women.
BioTE®- BioTE® is a method of hormone replacement that relies on naturally occurring estrogen and testosterone that is identical to what your body already produces. BioTE is typically administered in the form of pellets that are placed under your skin, letting hormones steadily into your bloodstream to carry them to other parts of your body.
BioTE® is a more convenient hormone therapy option for many as they remain in the system for three to six months, thus alleviating the need for daily or weekly treatments.
Pellets have proven to be one of the best methods of hormone replacement therapy in the majority of women with peri- and postmenopausal symptoms.
BioTE can decrease or fully alleviate many of the symptoms that come with a hormonal imbalance. These include:
- Hot flashes
- Night Sweats
- Decreased libido
- Energy loss
- Weight gain
- Memory loss
