Hormone Replacement Therapy Pellets
What is hormone replacement therapy?
Hormone replacement therapy (HRT) is a treatment that works to balance your hormones. Your body produces a vast array of hormones, which serve to trigger a multitude of functions within your body.
Your hormone production spikes during puberty, and then stays relatively stable until you reach menopause. For many women, declining hormone production makes menopause an incredibly uncomfortable time. HRT helps ease this time of transition by supplementing your hormone levels.
What are some common symptoms of menopause?
Every woman has a unique experience of menopause. Some are able to navigate the process with relative ease, while others find menopause to be a challenge.
Some common menopause symptoms include:
- Hot flashes
- Night sweats
- Brain fog
- Weight gain
- Abnormal bleeding
- Thinning hair
- Vaginal dryness
These are just some of the changes you might experience as you enter menopause. Some women begin to notice symptoms in their late 40s, while most women enter menopause sometime in their 50s.
How do hormone replacement therapy pellets work?
Hormone replacement therapy pellets deliver a steady stream of hormones after insertion just beneath the surface of your skin. The Women’s Center at Life Point Medical offers BioTE® bioidentical hormone replacement pellets, which are around the size of a grain of rice.
The pellets slowly break down over time, releasing supplemental hormones made from natural sources. Your body cannot distinguish between the hormones you produce naturally and those that come from HRT.
Insertion of the hormone replacement therapy pellets is not a painful process and takes very little time during a visit to The Women’s Center at Life Point Medical. It can take a few months to find the right balance of supplemental hormones, but Monique works closely with you to determine how your body is responding to HRT and makes changes as needed.
You track your symptoms during treatment with hormone replacement therapy pellets to make sure you are getting the right hormones at the proper dosage.
If you’re ready to move beyond the unpleasant and disruptive symptoms of menopause, call The Women’s Center at Life Point Medical to set up your hormone replacement therapy consultation today. You can also book online at any time.
