Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Q & A

Orange Coast OBGYN

What is BioTE?

BioTE provides customized bioidentical hormone replacement therapy in pellet form. One hormone replacement therapy doesn’t work for all women. With BioTE, Dr. Conner and Dr. Moore can create hormone replacement therapy specific to your hormonal needs.

The pellets are inserted under your skin and provide a steady dose of hormones to optimize hormone balance, relieve your symptoms, and restore your overall health. Your specialist at Orange Coast OBGYN monitors you, your symptoms, and your hormone levels, and replaces your pellet as needed to maintain balance. 

What is bioidentical hormone replacement?

Bioidentical hormone replacement is a natural form of hormone replacement therapy. These hormones are created from food, such as soy or yams, and modified to contain the same molecular structure as the hormones that circulate in your body to restore hormone balance and relieve symptoms.

These hormones are available in a variety of forms, including pills, creams, and gels. The women’s health experts at Orange Coast OBGYN use BioTE® hormone replacement pellets.   

What conditions can bioidentical hormone replacement treat?

Dr. Conner and Dr. Moore are progressive physicians who use bioidentical hormone replacement to treat a number of common health issues women face.

Conditions treated with bioidentical hormones include:

PMS

PMS refers to the physical and emotional symptoms you experience during your menstrual cycle, including mood swings and cramping. Fluctuations in your hormone levels may exacerbate these symptoms. Optimizing hormone balance with bioidentical hormone replacement may ease your symptoms and the effects they have on your quality of life.

PCOS

PCOS is a condition that causes your androgen levels, which are male sex hormones, to be elevated. You may experience heavy periods, pelvic pain, acne, and weight gain with PCOS. Your specialist at Orange Coast OBGYN treats PCOS through a combination of lifestyle modification and hormone balance with bioidentical hormone replacement.

Menopause

Menopause marks the end of your ability to get pregnant, and also causes a significant decline in your hormone levels. This decline can lead to a number of symptoms, from mood changes to low libido to weight gain. Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy can restore hormone balance and relieve your symptoms.
