Bioidentical Hormone Therapy Q & A

CoraMed Healthcare

How do I know if I have a hormonal imbalance?

Having a hormonal imbalance isn’t something that happens overnight. But as you age, certain hormones fluctuate while others decrease. When this happens, you may experience:

  • A decreased libido
  • Weight gain
  • Abnormal hair growth or loss
  • Prostate enlargement (men)
  • Hot flashes related to menopause (women)

What’s BioTe and how’s it different from other hormone replacement therapies?

BioTe is a type of bioidentical hormone therapy that uses pellets that go underneath your skin. The pellets gradually release all-natural estrogen or testosterone that slowly get metabolized by your system, as needed. Your body picks up the exact amount of hormone it needs from the BioTe pellets, without waiting for processing by other body systems.

How will I know if BioTe is working for me?

It’ll likely take several days or weeks for you to start noticing the benefits of BioTe. But as your hormone levels start to stabilize, you’ll probably notice:

  • Higher energy levels
  • Fewer mood swings
  • Relief from hot flashes (women)
  • More stable weight or weight loss
  • Better focus
  • Improved libido
  • Relief from anxiety

Where do the pellets go and how often do I need to have them replaced?

Because BioTe pellets are all-natural, meaning they’re not made from synthetic ingredients, your body simply absorbs them completely over time. Gender impacts how often you’ll need to get another dose of BioTe, though. If you’re female, for example, you may need new BioTe treatments every 3-4 months. But if you’re male, you may need new BioTe pellets implanted only every 4-5 months.

Are there other hormone replacement options available?

Yes. While Dr. Costello finds that BioTe pellets work for most patients, they’re not a cure-all for everyone. Plus, you might need an additional treatment alongside BioTe. For instance, in some cases, women who still have their uterus might need progesterone in addition to BioTe. Other times, compounded bioidentical creams and pharmaceuticals might be good fits for you.
