FAQ’s

Is BHRT Safe?

Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) has actually been used in the United States since 1938. Bio-identical Hormones are all natural plant based products made from yams and a small amount of soy. These hormones have the same molecular structure as the hormones produced within our own bodies, hence the term ‘bio-identical’.

There are numerous studies worldwide that document the benefits and safety of BHRT. These studies also report a lower incidence of side effects when compared with prescription drugs.

BHRT should not be confused with “synthetic hormones” which are typically found in many creams, gels and injection therapies used for hormone replacement.

How Are BHRT Pellets Inserted?

BHRT is a short, simple in-office procedure using a local anesthetic to ‘numb’ the skin. Your doctor will insert the pellets into the fatty layer just beneath your skin.

In men and women, a small incision is made in the buttocks or in the lower abdomen. The process is painless and takes just a few minutes.

What are the potential side-effects?

One of greatest advantages of BHRT pellet therapy is the low incidence of side effects. Although extremely rare, side effects may include: slight bruising, minor bleeding, infection or extrusion of the pellets.

How soon will I notice a difference?

The doctor will interpret your blood tests and determine an appropriate dosage specifically designed for your body. Women who receive estrogen can feel significantly better in 24-36 hours. Men and women who receive testosterone will start to feel relief of symptoms in 10-14 days.

The doctor will evaluate your hormone levels periodically to monitor any future changes that may be necessary.
