5 Reasons BioTE® Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy May Be Right for You

A hormonal imbalance can strike both women and men as they age, as well as individuals dealing with certain health issues. Fortunately, BioTE® bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) can assist in reducing unpleasant symptoms and help you feel like yourself again. 

Here at Habersham OBGYN in Demorest, Georgia, Dr. Thomas Hatchett and our highly skilled team provide personalized, state-of-the-art care for all stages of a woman's life, including menopause and its associated issues like a hormonal imbalance. We also treat men who are suffering from this problem.

While hormone replacement therapy may not be a good fit for everyone, it can significantly benefit certain individuals. Here are five reasons this treatment may be right for you.

You fall into a certain health category

Women undergoing perimenopause or menopause may experience low estrogen or progesterone, which can cause a hormone imbalance. Having a hysterectomy can result in this issue as well. As men age (or have surgery or get injured), they can suffer from low testosterone, which may lead to an imbalance of their hormones. Both genders can be affected by health issues such as stress, diabetes, or obesity, that can wreak havoc on the hormones.

You're experiencing sexual issues

Whether it's a low sex drive or sexual problem like erectile dysfunction or vaginal dryness, a hormonal imbalance can lead to problems in the bedroom.

You have trouble focusing

Poor focus and concentration can plague individuals with a hormonal imbalance. Treatment can leave you feeling more clear-headed and productive.

You want to safeguard your bone health

Many people may not realize balanced hormones are critical to good bone mass. When an imbalance occurs, you are at a greater risk for osteoporosis and brittle bones, and higher risk of fractures that go with it.

You're looking to treat it and forget it

Unlike creams and pills, BioTE® bioidentical hormone replacement therapy involves inserting two to four pellets subcutaneously each year to provide hormones to the body when it needs it. The hormone or hormones are administered consistently and won't cause sudden surges or side effects like some other types of treatments.

If you suspect you may have imbalanced hormones, we conduct expanded laboratory testing to determine your levels. Once we know the results, we create a customized BHRT plan to restore your levels and reduce your symptoms.
