Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy with Pellets Q & A

What is bioidentical hormone replacement therapy with pellets?

Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) with pellets uses implantable pellets manufactured by BioTE® to restore your hormones to balance. 

AIM Wellness is the leading BioTE provider in the region. The providers on staff have helped countless men and women combat hormonal imbalances and feel their best. 

Why would I need bioidentical hormone replacement therapy with pellets?

AIM Wellness uses bioidentical hormone replacement therapy with pellets to treat hormonal imbalances. You might experience a hormonal imbalance due to the natural aging process, or as a result of an underlying health problem, like insulin resistance, a thyroid disorder, or fibromyalgia.

Bioidentical hormones are unique, in that they’re derived from natural substances, like plants. Even so, they’re chemically identical to the hormones your body produces. This means they’re easier to adjust to and present fewer side effects.

What does bioidentical hormone replacement therapy with pellets involve?

At AIM Wellness, bioidentical hormone replacement therapy with pellets begins with a review of your medical records and a discussion of your symptoms. Next, your provider conducts a physical exam and orders lab tests, including blood work and urinalysis, to assess your current hormone levels. If your test results show hormonal fluctuations, you might qualify for treatment.  

Your AIM Wellness provider implants the pellets during a quick, outpatient procedure. During the visit, you lie face down on an exam table. Then, your provider cleans and sterilizes an area of skin on your upper buttocks. They make a small incision in your skin, implant the Biote pellet, and close it with sutures.

Over the next three to six months*, the pellets release natural hormones into your body, relieving uncomfortable symptoms and improving your quality of life.

Is bioidentical hormone replacement therapy with pellets safe?

Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy with pellets is safe and usually well-tolerated. Still, it’s normal to experience mild side effects, like bloating, acne, and fatigue, while your body adjusts. These symptoms typically resolve within a week or two, but if they persist, contact AIM Wellness for further guidance.
