Estrogen vs Testosterone

Women not only produce estrogen, they also produce testosterone! But as women age, both of these hormones will decrease and the symptoms can wreak havoc on the body and mind. Thankfully, Bioidentical Hormone Therapy (BHRT) is a natural way to find relief and return to your life’s balance.

What are bioidentical hormones?

Bioidentical hormones are processed hormones that come from plants designed to mimic the hormones made by your body. Taking bioidentical hormones through BHRT can help people achieve optimal hormone levels. Estrogen and testosterone are two of the most commonly used bioidentical hormones.

Common symptoms of low estrogen:

Hot flashes
Night sweats
Vaginal dryness or itching
Loss of libido or sex drive


Common symptoms of low testosterone:

Muscle weakness
Reduced sex drive
Night sweats
Weight gain

What is the process of BHRT?

With consultation and lab work, we will determine an ideal plan for you. Then, when you come for your appointment, we will insert the hormones your body needs via a pellet through a small incision in the upper buttocks. Once inserted, the pellets will be dissolved and absorbed by the body.

Even the slightest imbalance can cause symptoms that interfere with your life.  If you’re experiencing unwanted symptoms, please visit our website or call us during business hours to book your Biote Hormone Replacement Consult.
