BIOTE (Bioidentical Hormones) Q&A

What is BioTE hormone therapy?

BioTE hormone therapy provides relief for women experiencing disruptive menopause-related symptoms. BioTE consists of bioidentical hormones, so they match the hormones your body makes identically and naturally. BioTE bioidentical hormones are made with plant ingredients, not synthetic or animal products, so your body knows how to use them optimally.

The doctors administer BioTE hormones as pellets, implanted just under the surface of the skin. This delivery system ensures you get a steady stream of hormones that helps you manage menopause symptoms consistently.

What are the benefits of BioTE hormone therapy?

Menopause is the time when a woman’s fertility changes. In the years leading up to menopause — marked by 12 months without a period — you may experience a number of symptoms due to fluctuating hormone levels. In many women, these symptoms are disruptive and frustrating. They include:

  • Hot flashes
  • Night sweats
  • Vaginal dryness
  • Sleep disturbances
  • Reduced sex drive
  • Mood changes
  • Depression and anxiety

Some women may sail through menopause without notable symptoms. Others, however, can find it difficult to work or engage in normal activities due to the severity of their symptoms.

If you’re experiencing extreme symptoms of hormone changes during menopause, contact Interior Women’s Health to learn how BioTE hormone therapy can help you.

Am I a candidate for BioTE hormone therapy?

Dr. Baurick has lectured extensively on hormone replacement therapy and uses his expertise to determine if BioTE is right for you.

Not every woman responds well to hormones, especially if you have a history of blood clots or breast cancer. The doctors assess your age, general health, and the severity of your symptoms to determine if BioTE pellets will work well for you.

If you do decide treatment is right for you, Dr. Baurick or Dr. Heilman places the pellets under your skin through a small incision. They can discuss how often you need to replace the pellets based on your dosage and the effectiveness of your treatment.
