What are bio-identical hormones?2018-07-04T16:56:47-06:00

They are derived from a natural plant source and professionally compounded to be biologically identical to the human form of estradiol and testosterone. The body is given what it can no longer produce.

What can I expect?2018-07-04T16:55:36-06:00

The quality of life given back to every man or woman is second to none. Increased energy levels – restored or increased sexual drive – consistency in moods – no more roller coaster effect – relief from anxiety and depression – decreased body fat – increased mental clarity and focus – and a greater capacity for getting the body in shape.

How often will I need treatment?2018-07-04T16:54:28-06:00

It depends on the person, but anywhere from 4-6 months.

What are pellet therapy side effects?2018-07-04T16:53:50-06:00

Unlike other forms of hormone therapy, there are very few side effects. Two percent of patients experience mild acne or facial hair, and less than 1% experience hair thinning. All of these mild side effects are easily treatable.

I get horrible headaches, will this help me?2018-07-04T16:52:40-06:00

Yes! Bio-identical therapy has had great success with hormone-related headaches.

If I am a woman, do I still need estrogen?2018-07-04T16:51:41-06:00

Bio-identical absorbable estrogen is the most important hormone to protect a woman against heart attack, stroke, osteoporosis and Alzheimer’s. Synthetic estrogen taken orally does not offer the same universal benefits.

I have no libido, will pellet therapy help?2018-07-04T16:50:35-06:00

Good hormone balance will greatly improve your libido and sexual desires.

Will I grow unwanted hair from the testosterone?2018-07-04T16:49:49-06:00

There is much less chance of hair growth with bio-identical hormones.

Do I need other medications?2018-07-04T16:48:52-06:00

Unless the uterus has been removed, women will also need progesterone to protect the uterine lining.

What is the difference between bio-identical hormone pellets and creams?2018-07-04T16:47:49-06:00

There are a number of ways that hormone pellet therapy differs from bio-identical creams. BHRT pellet therapy is injected subcutaneously, resting beneath the skin. This injection eliminates the “roller coaster” effect that often accompanies BHRT creams.

What does pellet therapy cost?2018-07-04T16:46:53-06:00

The cost of hormone pellet therapy differs based on your individual treatment plan and needs. Generally, the BHRT pellet therapy cost is competitive with other hormone therapy delivery methods.
