What is female hormone replacement therapy?
Female hormone replacement therapy (HRT) can take the form of patches, creams, pills or pellets. These treatments and therapies contain estradiol, progestin and testosterone. When hormones are out of balance, hormone replacement therapy can help with many different symptoms including emotional symptoms, reproductive symptoms and non-reproductive symptoms.
What is BHRT?
BHRT stands for bio-identical hormone replacement therapy. What does that mean? Bio-identical refers to how molecularly similar the supplemental hormone is to the human hormone. Other supplemental hormones such as the ones administered by conventional physicians are not bio-identical. Bio-identicals are derived from plants while synthetic hormones are derived from animals. Hormone replacement therapy is the purpose of the bio-identical hormones. People who lack certain hormones or who have too much of a certain hormone may benefit from BHRT.
What are BHRT pellets?
BHRT pellets are subcutaneous implants that are inserted into the hip area. They are made of custom compounded hormones and natural binders to hold them together. The hormones are compounded in one of two pharmacies in the United States that are licensed FDA outsourcing centers and are held to strict standards. Every batch of hormones is tested for consistency, purity and comes with our guarantee that our patients are being provided the best possible therapy to help their healing.
How can BHRT help menopausal women?
Rather than taking pills or other methods of hormonal administration that may not offer consistent hormonal doses, BHRT pellets offer consistent doses throughout the day. This relieves women experiencing menopause from the rollercoaster effects of hormones with less consistent administration. Learn more about BHRT pellets from Dr. Knapp today!
What can I expect from BHRT?
While everyone’s results are different, the process for considering, getting, monitoring and continuing with BHRT is typically the same with all our patients. Your first appointment with Dr. Knapp, a BioTE certified provider, will include hormone testing. The next appointment will be to review your tests, after which you will be able to get a BHRT pellet inserted on that or the next visit.
What are the drawbacks of pellet therapy?
Pellet therapy may not be covered by your insurance provider. However, pellet therapy, especially when compared to the cost of treatment for the myriad conditions it lessens and prevents, is very cost effective as well as natural.
