With age, the body’s ability to produce hormones is disrupted, causing mood swings, low energy, brittle bones, and a lack of sleep. One of the safest and most effective bio-identical hormone replacement therapy is BioTE, which has become the go-to treatment for many people seeking to treat hormone deficiencies due to age or genetics.
What Is Hormone Imbalance?
With aging, the production of hormones can be affected. Whether it’s too much or too little of a hormone, it can affect the body, ranging from moderate to severe.
Hormonal Imbalance In Women
The aging process contributes to women’s hormone imbalance, reflecting genetic predispositions for certain conditions. It can also be affected by food, exercise, and stress. Symptoms of hormone imbalance can range from subtle to debilitating and are often masked by medications, typically prescribed for insomnia, anxiousness, low mood, weight gain, etc.
Having a regular hormone check-up can reveal whether hormones are optimized, which also helps avoid hormonal imbalance in a woman’s endocrine system. The use of BioTE Medical’s method of bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) can help balance female hormones.
Below are the symptoms of a hormonal imbalance in women, which include:
- Heavy, irregular, or uncomfortable periods.
- Decreased bone density.
- Hot flashes and night sweats.
- Vaginal dryness.
- Breast tenderness.
- Constipation or diarrhea.
Hormonal Imbalance In Men
Low testosterone is common among 40% of men aged 45 and older. That said, men in their 20’s may start to experience the symptoms. Since many providers are not adequately trained in testosterone replacement, men are often confused about sub-optimal treatment.
Additionally, the symptoms of an imbalance in male hormones are frustrating and can affect everyday life ranging from mild to severe. Below are the common symptoms of hormone imbalance in men, which include:
- Erectile dysfunction
- Low libido or interest in sex
- Low Energy
- Inability to Sleep
- Weight Gain
- Brain Fog
- Inability to Maintain Muscle Mass
- Low mood
How Does BioTE Work?
As a hormone replacement treatment, BioTE uses pellets and tiny cylindrical-shaped supplements inserted under the skin. These pellets release precise doses of hormones over time so that the body can receive a steady stream of hormones for optimal function. Moreover, the time-release aspect of BioTE pellets means hormones are delivered and distributed, similar to how the body naturally distributes the hormones, which means a far lower risk of side effects.
Since BioTE uses bioidentical hormones that are synthetics, they have the same chemical structures as those naturally produced hormones. Bioidentical hormones are processed by the body and eliminated in the same way as natural hormones for better effects and fewer risks. Depending on the specific needs, the tiny implant is inserted under the skin and replaced every three to six months.
Additionally, implant placement is performed right in the office in just a few minutes using a local anesthetic. Both estrogen and testosterone implants are available.

Why Choose BioTE As Hormone Replacement Therapy?
Below are reasons to consider BioTE as the hormone replacement:
Symptoms associated with hormonal imbalances
When people start to experience the common symptoms of estrogen and testosterone imbalance, which include moodiness, irritability, loss of libido, depression, memory and concentration problem, and a lot more. For this reason, the estrogen level starts to decline, which is associated with hot flashes, night sweats, facial hair growth, painful intercourse, vaginal dryness, and an increased risk of urinary incontinence. The same goes with low testosterone levels, which can also cause erectile dysfunction, including getting and maintaining an erection.
A natural therapy
Since BioTE uses bioidentical hormones, they are most likely natural hormones. Unlike other hormone replacement products, like rings, patches, gels, creams, and pills, BioTE pellets don’t use synthetic fillers and dissolve completely over time.
Not wanting to deal with messy gels or creams, or remember to take pills
Because the BioTE HRT system uses pellets implanted under the skin, hormone releases and the delivery happens automatically, without any intervention. Keep in mind that pellets have to be replaced every few months, according to schedules established by the doctor or provider, and also based on the specific needs, symptoms, and medical history.
Minimize The Risk Of Side Effects
Risks are inevitable, but HRT can be beneficial to those people suffering from all sorts of symptoms associated with a decrease in hormones. The good news is BioTE helps minimize side effects in two important ways:
- First, it uses bioidentical hormones;
- Second, it releases hormones slowly, over time, just how the body releases natural hormones.
This only means not to worry about the peaks and valleys associated with pills and other therapies. Compared to creams or gels, the hormones are delivered right to the bloodstream, so it effectively addresses a whole array of symptoms.
Have tried and rejected other hormone replacement products
Some people have tried HRT in the past, and it just hasn’t worked for them or perhaps experienced side effects due to the therapy. BioTE works differently in terms of results since many people who’ve had unpleasant experiences with HRT in the past find they get the results they want with BioTE pellets.
Who Should Not Receive A BioTe Hormone Therapy?
- Recent Cancer Diagnosis
- Recent Cardiovascular Event
- Elevated PSA Test Result
- History Of Recent Seizure
What Are The Possible Side Effects While Using BioTE Hormone Replacement Therapy?
Since the BioTE pellet is placed in the upper buttocks, it causes little to no discomfort. The good thing is most patients can resume their regular activity almost immediately after the pellet placement.
As noted, BioTE hormone replacement therapy uses naturally produced hormones, which means minimal side effects. However, some women notice an increase in facial hair, thinning hair, and acne, which are relatively uncommon and treatable.
As millions of individuals are impacted by hormone imbalance every day, ranging from weight gain and fatigue to severe mood changes and low libido, BioTE Hormone Therapy can help men and women experiencing hormone imbalance.
