Hormone imbalance may occur as early as our 20s. Symptoms vary but may include fatigue, depression, insomnia, weight gain, muscle aches and weakness, sexual dysfunction and more.

Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT)
can improve those symptoms.

What is BHRT?

Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) in Las Cruces, NM is a natural alternative to synthetic hormone replacement therapies, subcutaneous bio-identical hormone replacement therapy utilizes bio-identical hormones derived of natural, plant-based substances. Unlike synthetic hormones, the structure of the bio-identical hormone – testosterone, estrogen or both – most closely matches each individual patient’s needs. Since they are derived from nature, plant-based hormones metabolize in the body, just the way nature intended.

Pellets for HRT

So what exactly are bio-identical hormone pellets anyway?

BHRT with pellets has been shown to be a superior method to optimize hormones and address health conditions and symptoms associated with unbalanced hormones in women and men. With bio-identical hormone replacement therapy, synthetic hormones are replaced with natural, plant-based testosterone and estrogen pellets, providing superior results that keep blood levels of the hormones more steady.  This avoids the highs and lows associated with daily injections and creams.  Pellets last from 4-6 months.

Larger than a grain of rice and smaller than a Tic Tac, BHRT pellets are composed of either estradiol (an estrogen hormone) or testosterone. The pellets used for hormone pellet therapy are manufactured by a leading compounding pharmacy in the United States, where the hormones are pressed or fused into small, solid cylinders.

What’s the procedure like?

The tiny hormone pellets are inserted into the fatty tissue through a tiny incision under the skin – usually in the buttocks (women) or flank (men). The incision is so small there is no need for stitches. To prevent patient discomfort, a local anesthetic is applied to the insertion site prior to the procedure. That’s it! The hormones are released slowly over the course of several months in response to your metabolism, physical activity, or emotional stress, keeping mood and energy fluctuations at bay daily.
