Hormonal imbalance is a serious problem for many women, particularly when it comes to perimenopause and menopause, but don’t realize it. Female hormone imbalance can cause several serious symptoms that reduce the overall quality of life. These symptoms are often masked by medications prescribed for anxiety, low mood, insomnia, weight gain and more.

For women, having their hormones checked regularly will reveal whether hormones are optimized and will help avoid hormonal imbalance in a women’s endocrine system. Fortunately, problems caused by perimenopause and menopause hormone imbalance are treatable with bioidentical hormone pellet therapy. Hormone pellet therapy for women is the preferred method of hormone replacement therapy. It is a natural therapy that contains bio-identical hormones that alleviates the symptoms of female hormonal imbalance safely and effectively.

Hormone imbalance can occur as part of the aging process and may reflect genetic predispositions for certain conditions. However, hormone balance or imbalance can also be affected by the food you eat, the amount of exercise you get, and the amount of stress you experience.

Hormone imbalance begins with your endocrine system. This system is a series of glands that produce and disseminate hormones throughout the body.

What People Are Saying About BioTE® Hormone Replacement

The team at Syracuse Medical specializes in helping women with a hormone imbalance restore the proper balance your body needs using bioidentical hormone replacement therapy. When balance is restored an individual may experience a greatly improved quality of life. In addition to feeling great, studies have shown that proper hormone balance in women has an overall positive and profound effect on their health.

How Does Bioidentical Hormone Therapy Work For Women?

At Syracuse Medical we provide a form of hormone pellet therapy for women called BioTE® hormone pellet therapy. Our bioidentical hormone replacement therapy for women may begin to balance the female hormones of a patient in as few as two weeks. Compared to other hormone replacement therapy delivery methods such as patches, injections and pills, BioTE® hormone pellet therapy has many benefits that synthetic hormones do not have including: 

  • Direct absorption into the blood
  • Being naturally made from plants
  • Consistent delivery of hormones with no “roller coaster” effect
  • Reducing the risk of breast cancer, uterine cancer and heart disease

What Makes BioTE® Hormone Pellet Therapy For Women Better Than Other Delivery Methods?

Bioidentical hormone pellets do not cause fluctuations in hormone levels throughout the day because we tailor each patient’s dose to their blood work results. BioTE® bioidentical hormones are naturally derived from plants and mimic the hormones normally present within the body. The delivery system keeps your levels consistent 24/7 which minimizes side effects. Also, synthetic hormones like pills, creams, gels and injections, produce unsafe side effects such as increasing your risk of heart disease, breast cancer, blood clots and high blood pressure.

BioTE® hormone pellet therapy is a hassle-free treatment. Synthetic hormones must be administered by the patient every single day. However, bioidentical hormones only need to be inserted 3-4 times per year making this a more convenient option for you.

What Can A Patient Expect From Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy? 

While each patient’s results may differ, the process for considering, obtaining, monitoring and continuing bioidentical hormone replacement therapy is typically the same for all patients. New patients will begin by scheduling a consultation with Syracuse Medical. Prior to coming in for your consultation, we will set up a time for you to have blood work done to run a comprehensive hormone panel. At the time of your consultation we will review your test results and recommend the best course of action for you.

Frequently Asked Questions On Hormone Replacement Therapy

How Does BioTE® Fix My Hormone Imbalance?

We chose BioTE® pellet hormone replacement therapy because it uses bioidentical hormone optimization to restore balance in your body. The pellets are composed of natural plant sources to replicate your body’s natural hormonal levels. Patients using this type of therapy have found it to be very effective because pellet implants consistently release small doses of bioidentical hormones as the body needs.

Traditional forms of hormone replacement therapy tend to produce “roller coaster” hormone levels resulting in mood and energy fluctuations. Pellet therapy provides sustained, consistent doses throughout the day for 3-5 months. Bioidentical hormone replacement pellets contain the exact hormones as your body produces and have been used effectively since 1939.

What Makes Pellet Therapy Better Than Other Forms of Hormone Replacement Treatment?

While there are numerous types of hormone replacement therapy such as pills, patches, creams and shots; bioidentical hormone replacement pellet therapy is the best way to give your body the proper doses of hormones as your body needs them. A few other benefits of bioidentical hormone therapy include:

  • The hormone pellets are identical to your body’s own hormones
  • Customized dosing for each individual
  • Hormones delivered directly into the bloodstream 24 hours a day, 7 days a week
  • Pellets last anywhere from 3-5 months
  • No “roller coaster” effects resulting in fluctuating in mood and energy
  • Decreased risk of heart disease, cancer, and diabetes
  • Increased collagen production for better skin
  • Hormone balance based on research, not experimentation or guessing

Hormone balance is the foundation of health. Research demonstrates that hormones are the key to the intricate, interrelationships of our body’s systems. Maintaining optimal hormone balance is pivotal to your overall health and well being.

How Long Does It Take for BioTE Pellets to Start Working?

While every person is unique, most patients report symptomatic relief in as little as 7-10 days after your pellet insertion. Once the pellets are inserted in the gluteal area, a consistent dose of bio-identical hormones enters the bloodstream.

How Often Do I Need to Get Pellets Inserted?

Typically women have 3-4 insertions per year and men have 2-3 insertions per year.

Is BioTE Covered by Insurance?

Typically, your blood work is covered by your insurance but the actual pellet therapy is considered an elective procedure and not covered by insurance.
