How Hormone Replacement Therapy Pellets Can Get You Through Menopause

How Hormone Replacement Therapy Pellets Can Get You Through Menopause

Menopause, perimenopause, and the period of change that women’s bodies go through as reproductive capability ends with age, can be difficult to get through on your own.

Your hormone levels change during this period, causing uncomfortable symptoms that affect many parts of your life, from your diet to your sexuality. Before menopause, you might not have realized how many aspects of your health and wellness your hormones actually control!

Family nurse practitioner Monique Petteys and the team at The Women’s Center at Life Point Medical provide expert support and effective treatment for menopause-related hormonal troubles. Among our offerings, you may be interested in hormone replacement therapy (HRT) pellets, a low-stress way to rebalance your hormones.

Here’s what we want our new and existing patients from the Clayton, Georgia area to know about HRT treatment options for menopause.

Hormonal changes, menopause, and you

Your hormones contribute to your emotional health and mood, your sexual health and libido, and even your metabolism and sleep cycle. For women, hormonal changes are normal with age, as estrogen levels naturally decline.

However, the side effects of hormonal changes and menopause can really get in your way. Around the time of your menopause, you might notice symptoms that include:

Menopausal and perimenopausal hormone changes in women can also increase risks of bone loss and blood sugar irregularity.

Bioidentical hormone therapy

At The Women’s Center at Life Point Medical, our team diagnoses your hormone imbalances and recommends the best treatment options to support your whole-body health and personal wellness. We may recommend BioTE® bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) treatment.

With BHRT, you can be assured that the hormones you’re taking match those naturally produced by your body. When your system receives bioidentical plant-based hormones, chemically identical to your own hormones, it knows exactly how to use them. BHRT can help you keep feeling like yourself throughout the menopausal period.

BioTE HRT pellets

BioTE simplifies the HRT process through implantable pellet delivery. Instead of fussing with pills and creams, this cutting-edge, slow-release medication technology is simple and direct.

First, your provider places a small pellet, about the size of a single grain of rice, under your skin. The insertion process is typically quick and not painful. Then, the correct dosage of your HRT medication slowly releases, spreading throughout your body via your bloodstream. 

If we need to adjust your dosage, we can make changes as needed. We keep track of your symptoms to make sure you're getting the hormone dose that's best for you.

To learn more about how BioTE and BHRT can get you through menopause with your sanity and quality of life intact, get in touch with the Life Point Medical team today. You can schedule your initial consultation appointment over the phone at 706-250-7306, or request an appointment online.
