The Benefits of Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy
Hormones help control almost all of the bodily functions in both women and men.
In our 20’s our bodies typically produce hormones at optimum, balanced levels allowing all our organs to function optimally, helping us feel energetic and youthful. However, after the age of 30 our hormone production starts to slow down causing hormonal imbalances that result in:
- reduced immunity
- muscle and joint pain
- reduced energy levels
- reduced focus and mental clarity
- difficulty sleeping well at night
- reduced libido and sexual function
- reduced metabolism (causing weight gain)
- reduced bone density and muscular strength
- reduced stability of the skin and hair (causing an aged appearance)
- reduced emotional stability (causing moodiness, anxiety and depression)
- increased risk of heart disease and other diseases associated with the aging process
Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy helps balance our hormones and keep them at optimal levels so that our bodily functions are regulated, keeping us in great overall health, both physically and mentally. The result is a wonderful feeling of vitality and youth so that you can enjoy life to the fullest at all ages.

Why Are Bioidentical Hormones The Best Kind Of Hormone Replacement Therapy?
Bioidentical hormones are the best type of hormone replacement because bioidentical hormones have the same chemical structure as your body’s natural hormones. The body reacts to bioidentical hormones in exactly the same way they react to your own natural hormones. Therefore, bioidentical hormones are the most naturally effective hormones for hormone replacement therapy.
What are BioTE® Hormone Replacement Therapy Pellets?
BioTE® hormone pellets are tiny implants that are smaller than a grain of rice. The pellets contain bioidentical hormones (estrogen and testosterone) and are inserted into the fatty tissue under the skin in the upper hip.
Once inserted under the skin the pellet will consistently release small doses of the appropriate amounts of hormones into the bloodstream needed to maintain an optimum hormone level throughout the day.
The hormone replacement pellet will remain in place, balancing your hormone levels for up to 4-6 months.
How are BioTE® Hormone Replacement Pellets Inserted?
Our hormone replacement therapy doctor Marlene Valentin, MD, safely and painlessly inserts the pellet into the fatty tissue under your skin. Pellet insertion is performed under local anesthesia on an outpatient basis in our office and typically takes less than 20 minutes.
The pellet is inserted through a tiny incision that requires no staples or sutures after insertion.
How Long Do Hormone Pellets Last?
The hormone pellet will last approximately 4-6 months after which another pellet would be inserted to continue therapy.
