Menopause typically affects women in their 40s and 50s but can happen much earlier or much later. Around this time, you may start to notice changes in your mood, body temperature, and monthly cycle. Menopause begins when the ovaries stop producing the hormone estrogen and slow down the production of other reproductive hormones. To help lessen the undesirable symptoms of menopause, Texas Urological Clinic offers our patients BioTE® hormone pellet therapy. This may be just what you’ve been looking for to feel good again.
Common Symptoms of Menopause
Although menopause is a natural and common part of life, it affects every woman differently. You may not experience all the symptoms listed below, but this list may help you recognize the onset of menopause. These include:
• Irregular or missed periods
• Hot flashes and night sweats
• Vaginal dryness
• Frequent bladder infections
• Lower sex drive
Of course, these symptoms can also be caused by prescription medications, lifestyle changes, stress, or mood disorders. It’s important to visit a qualified professional for a proper diagnosis.
How Hormone Pellet Therapy Can Help
BioTE® hormone pellet therapy uses hormones derived from natural sources. It mimics the hormones that are produced naturally by the body and helps replace what is lost during menopause, reducing negative symptoms.
Unlike other synthetic hormone replacement treatments, BioTE® hormone pellet therapy delivers a steady level of hormones throughout the day for multiple months. This steady and consistent level of hormones prevents the common “rollercoaster” effect many patients experience with other hormone treatments. Pellets are inserted under the skin and are completely dissolved by the body. There are no creams, patches, shots, or pills needed.
Benefits of Hormone Pellet Therapy
BioTE® hormone pellet therapy is a great way to provide relief from menopause symptoms. In time, you will start to see your menopause symptoms improve or subside. This can include:
• Better sleep
• Improved libido
• Less hot flashes
• Fewer night sweats
• Improved mood
Who Can Get Hormone Pellet Therapy?
Hormone pellet therapy is not only for menopause; many other hormonal conditions can be improved with this therapy. Men also lose beneficial hormones as they age and may benefit from pellet therapy if they are needing added testosterone. A simple test can determine your hormone levels.
