Understanding BioTE

iStock 1075643024 1 As we age, disease prevention and vitality are essential to both men and women. Our hormones play a role in this. Balanced hormones are important to maintaining good overall health. After the age of 30, women lose hormones in the body each year, which leaves them susceptible to a number of ailments, diseases, and changes in our levels of energy and even sexual desires. With this in mind, many women turn to medical professionals to learn about ways to keep their hormones balanced even during times of change, such as menopause. The doctors at Northwest Women’s Center are here to help with hormone replacement options including BioTE pellet therapy. 

Understanding BioTE 

BioTE is the use of plant-derived hormones that can be injected into the body in the form of pellets. Pellets are placed under the skin and slowly dissolve into the patient’s bloodstream to help in balancing hormone levels. This type of treatment for hormone replacement is different than estradiol injections. The hormones in the BioTE pellets are released gradually and don’t require women to do anything to get their hormones back in balance during perimenopause and menopause.
