Bioidentical Hormones

BIOIDENTICAL HORMONES

Not feeling your "most"?

Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy is the use of plant-derived compounds that most closely reflect the hormones that your body produced before menopause.

Q & A

Bioidentical hormone pellets have some advantages over the other ways to take hormones. Because they are inserted into your fatty tissues, usually in the buttock region, they form a network of blood vessels that picks up the hormone at the pellet source and delivers the hormone throughout your body.

This matters because when you are exercising or stressed and your blood is pumping harder and faster, you need more hormone so more will be delivered, much like when you had natural production. Likewise, when you are relaxed or sleeping, you need less so pellet therapy tends to give you a more stable blood level of hormone than most other approaches.

Pellets are plant-based compounds specifically formulated to align with the molecular structure of human hormones. Their goal is to replicate, as close as possible, your natural hormones. The pellets are derived from a natural plant source of soy and other plant-based ingredients. They contain no horse urine or synthetic fillers. Nore Women’s Health stands behind the quality of the pellets and their ingredients.

Instead of taking them orally, pellets are inserted just under the lower abdominal wall or in the hip area through a small incision and a trochar. This procedure requires local anesthesia. You may need to avoid water sports and baths for several days following insertion and may experience minor bruising. The pellets are slowly metabolized by your system, so you experience a natural, steady release of hormones. They need to be replaced every 3-4 months.

Yes, men can also benefit from hormone replacement therapy if they are low in testosterone. While Nore’s primary focus is on women, our providers are able to treat the male partners of our female patients.

Hormone replacement therapy has been widely used for years. Conventional (non-bioidentical) hormone therapy side effects are well documented. There is an overwhelmingly large body of evidence that supports the claim that bioidentical hormone therapy is safer and more effective than synthetic hormone replacement. However, it’s important to remember that no drug, supplement or herb is 100% safe—there is always a chance that you may experience an adverse reaction. That’s why it’s critical for women to consult with a hormone specialist before beginning any hormone therapy regimen, to safeguard themselves from side effects.
