Bioidentical Hormone Therapy Q & A

Tangchitnob MD
 

What is BHRT?

Your hormones control your bodily functions from your metabolism to your sex drive. When you have a hormonal imbalance, your body doesn’t work properly and you develop symptoms that can disrupt your life and negatively affect your health and well-being.  

BHRT is a method of replacing those hormones with synthetic compounds specifically designed to supply the hormones your body needs.

At Tangchitnob MD, the doctors use BioTe® pellets to replace your hormones and regulate your symptoms.

What are the signs of hormone imbalance?

While there are many causes of hormonal imbalances, the most common time women experience these imbalances is during menopause. As you approach and enter menopause, your body produces less estrogen. While this triggers the end of your menses, it also can cause several troublesome symptoms including:

  • Hot flashes and night sweats
  • Weight gain
  • Insomnia and daytime fatigue
  • Irritability and mood swings
  • Decreased libido
  • Depression and anxiety

Every woman has a unique experience with menopause and may or may not experience these symptoms. Menopause symptoms also occur on a broad spectrum with some women having mild symptoms and others having more severe and disruptive experiences.

How does BHRT work?

Drs. Tangchitnob offer BHRT with BioTe pellets. After a comprehensive consultation including thorough bloodwork, the pellets are custom-made to match your natural hormones and specifically address your needs.

Your doctor injects the pellets into the soft tissue at the top of your buttocks where they slowly release hormones. Depending on your needs, your doctor may inject pellets two to four times a year. You may notice a change within two to four weeks of starting BHRT with optimal improvement after six months.

You’ll have regular appointments with your doctor so he can monitor your hormone levels and adjust your pellets when necessary.

If you’re living with symptoms that are disrupting your life and affecting your overall wellness, make an appointment to talk with the doctors at Tangchitnob MD.
