Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) with Pellets
As we age, the production of hormones can be affected. Too much or too little of a hormone can have effects on the body, ranging from moderate to severe.
When you have a hormone imbalance, hormone therapy may help provide relief from challenging symptoms. When balance is restored, and hormone levels are optimized, the entire body can function at its full potential.
The BioTE Method of specialized hormone pellet therapy uses custom-compounded pellets that are specifically designed to replace the hormones men and women lose over time. BioTE’s Method of bioidentical hormone replacement therapy, also known as BHRT, may help avoid unwanted side effects connected with a hormone imbalance.
During pellet therapy, pellets are inserted subcutaneously into the body in a quick, simple, in-office procedure. These pellets will gradually be absorbed, dispersing hormones throughout the body.
Hormone replacement patients receive as few as three bioidentical hormone pellet insertions per year. They don’t have to think about it this way, and the hormone is available when their bodies need it. It’s a simple, one-and-done process, and there’s no need to worry about remembering to take a pill or shot every day.
What Is It?
Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy, also known as bioidentical hormone therapy or natural hormone therapy, is the use of hormones that are identical on a molecular level with endogenous hormones in hormone replacement therapy.
How Does It Work?
Pellets are tiny, custom-compounded therapies for symptoms that stem from hormonal imbalances. The Biote Method may help keep patient’s hormone levels consistent throughout the day. The pellet therapy that Biote trains on uses hormones that are bioidentical to those found in the human body.
The BioTE Method of bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) uses bioidentical, meaning the chemical structure is the same as the hormones produced by our body, estradiol. Our approach to BHRT using pellets may help avoid unwanted side effects.
How Long Will It Take?
From start to finish the procedure can take up to 1 hour.
What Does It Help?

What Is Involved?
Each patient’s symptoms are unique, and so is each patient’s path to hormone optimization through BHRT using pellets. Most bioidentical hormone replacement therapy patients report some relief in as little as four weeks, but full optimization may take up to six months.

A little redness, bruising and swelling for 3-4 days is normal. The area may be tender for 4-14 days. However, each hormone replacement therapy patient’s symptoms are unique, so is each patient’s path to hormone optimization. Most hormone therapy patients report some relief in as little as four weeks, but full optimization may take up to six months.
