Common questions regarding Bioidentical Hormones:

How are Bioidentical Hormones administered?

Bioidentical Hormone Pellet Therapy for hormone replacement has been around for over 70 years and is the safest, most effective form of hormone replacement therapy available. Bioidentical hormone pellets are compounded in custom dosages to meet each patient’s needs, and the tiny implants that are about the size of a grain of rice are inserted under the skin. The pellet delivery system allows for a consistent, gradual release of a physiologic dose of hormone, with no roller coaster effect. It’s what a body needs, in the right amount, exactly when it needs it.

What symptoms can be alleviated with Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy?

Some examples of symptoms alleviated with Bioidentical Hormones commonly reported by women include low sex drive, hot flashes and night sweats, weight gain, mood swings, and fatigue. Problems that affect men alone include loss of muscle tone, erectile dysfunction, low sperm counts, and loss of body hair. Women frequently complain of vaginal dryness, painful intercourse, and worsening issues with premenstrual syndrome. This is just a small sample of the dozens of symptoms that either gender may experience as a result of imbalanced or low hormone levels.

What age groups benefit most from Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy?

Women tend to experience problems with hormone imbalance when they start perimenopause, which happens several years before actual menopause. This could be anywhere from the mid 30s to the early 50s. Men’s bodies start producing less testosterone around the age of 30, but the effects are often not felt until around age 40. In either case, people who are at or near middle age usually benefit from Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy treatments the most, but hormone imbalances can occur and be treated at almost any age.

What is the difference between Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy and other synthetic hormone options available?

Bioidentical hormones are a replication of the hormones naturally produced by the body, in terms of cell and chemical structure. They are derived from plant extracts and manufactured by a compounding pharmacy to be of maximum benefit to the patient. Synthetic hormones, on the other hand, are altered and replaced with unnatural chemical ingredients. Medical studies indicate that Bioidentical Hormones are safer overall than synthetic ones.

What types of hormones are offered with Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy?

Every patient receives the appropriate hormone amounts that is specific to them and can include estrone, estradiol, progesterone, thyroid hormone, and testosterone. The specialists at Tutera Medical will conduct tests and determine the specific hormones to use in the pellet therapy program.
