Frequently Asked Questions
What Do I Need To Know?
Hormones are chemicals made by parts of the body called glands. They are messengers that tell other parts of the body how and when to work. Hormones control almost all tasks in the body relating to regulation. These include sex and brain function, growth and the breakdown of food. When hormones are out of balance, symptoms can occur.
Bioidentical hormones are hormones derived from plants. They are structurally the same as the hormones found within the human body. Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) uses these hormones to help address symptoms related to hormonal imbalance. Common hormones that are matched are estrogen, progesterone and testosterone.
The symptoms of hormone imbalance can be frustrating to experience, but Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy, or BHRT, can help many patients live a normal life. Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy may offer relief for many common and debilitating symptoms that are often overlooked by other medical providers. Some of these symptoms include exhaustion, stress, brain fog, weight gain, sleep disturbances, and many other conditions. These ailments may be managed by getting to the root cause and returning you to a state of hormone balance.
How Will I Look & Feel Afterwards?
Our approach to Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy is custom to each patient’s unique physiology, allowing patients to get the most out of their treatment as possible. The benefits of hormone replacement therapy may begin to work within four weeks as the bioidentical hormones enter the bloodstream. Some patients begin to feel the benefits of hormone therapy right away, while others won’t experience hormone therapy benefits for a few months. Full hormone optimization can take up to six months, depending on your individual needs, as well as the plan you and your provider decide to proceed with.
What are Bio-identical hormones?
Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) is the use of supplemental doses of hormones that derive from plant sources that have identical chemical structure to the hormones we produce naturally!
How often do I need to get pelleted?
For women typically every three to four months and for men every four to five months.
When will I start to feel my BioTE results?
Although every patient experience is slightly different, many patients report feeling a change within the first two to four weeks, however full hormone optimization can take up to six months.
What Else Do I Need To Know?
Treatment includes a comprehensive consultation and extensive lab work to review your current hormone levels, health history, symptoms and needs.
A custom treatment plan is prepared and every dose is different for each patient. We use a complex algorithm to determine a dose specific to you.
The procedure itself involves subcutaneous pellet insertion and only takes about 10 minutes to complete. It is virtually painless and quick.
Labs will be repeated at 4 weeks for men and 6 weeks for women to record your responsiveness to the treatment and adjust if needed. Our provider will work very closely with you to ensure you received optimized benefits.
Women receiving estradiol pellet therapy will also receive oral progesterone.
The benefits can be physical, mental and emotional. As each patient’s symptoms are unique, so is each patient’s path to hormone optimization.

Is there downtime with BioTE?
There is practically no downtime after this treatment. However, we recommend not to practice any strenuous exercise or prolonged water exposure for the first few days after pellet insertion.
What does a BioTE treatment look like?
Patients are first cleaned and numbed at the site of insertion (typically the butt cheek). Once fully numbed, our practitioners will make a very small incision to insert the pellets (these pellets are about the size of a grain of rice).
Once inserted, we cover the site with a bandage, and that’s it! This treatment takes no longer than 10 to 15 minutes to complete.
