What is BHRT?
BHRT is an innovative hormone therapy that mimics your natural hormones. BHRT is compounded to meet your specific hormonal needs, relieve hormonal imbalance symptoms, and restore your overall health and vitality.
What is BioTe?
BioTe is a leading brand of subdermal pellet BHRT. Dr. Sohn places the pellets under the skin on your lower abdomen or upper buttocks. The pellets slowly release hormones to regulate your health. Unlike topical creams or gels or oral tablets, bioTe provides seamless hormone therapy without peaks or troughs.
How do I know if BHRT is right for me?
Dr. Sohn provides comprehensive exams and consultations before recommending BioTe BHRT. He orders extensive blood testing to analyze your hormone levels and identify your specific needs.
Any woman with a hormonal imbalance might benefit from bioTe, although the most common reason for considering BHRT is menopause. BHRT might relieve symptoms, including:
- Weight gain
- Hot flashes and night sweats
- Brain fog
- Depression and anxiety
- Vaginal dryness
- Painful sex
- Libido loss
- Urinary issues
If any of these symptoms sound familiar, make an appointment with Dr. Sohn at Stellar Women’s Care to find out if bioTe is right for you.
What should I expect from bioTe treatment?
Dr. Sohn begins with extensive testing to identify your specific needs. Then, when your BioTe pellets are ready, he provides a local anesthetic to prepare you for insertion, then places the pellets under your skin. Dr. Sohn places a small bandage over the insertion site.
You should avoid strenuous lower-body exercises as well as swimming, hot tubs or baths for a couple of days. Walking and showering are fine.
As the pellet dissolves under your skin, it begins to release hormones and improve your endocrine function. Most patients notice a change in their symptoms within four weeks, but it can take longer to achieve full hormonal optimization.
You have regular appointments for Dr. Sohn to monitor your symptoms and the effectiveness of your bioTe treatment. If necessary, he can adjust your dose to help you regain your overall wellness.
