Why BioTE Hormone Therapy May Be Your Best Solution to Bothersome Menopausal Symptoms

Are you worried about the side effects of menopause due to your hormone levels tanking as your body goes through the process? You aren’t alone. Every year, hundreds of thousands of women enter menopause and have to deal with the changes that lower hormone levels bring.

Fortunately, Maria Cole, FNP, and Kelly Wenger, FNP, at Maria Cole Family Practice in Odessa, Texas, can help. They offer BioTE® hormone replacement pellets that boost energy and alleviate the most common symptoms of menopause, helping you look and feel years younger.  

Menopause Symptoms

You are most likely to enter menopause when you are between 45 and 55 years old, and immediately you may feel the side effects of dropping hormone levels. Your menopause symptoms can be severely disruptive to your life, making it hard to sleep at night and function during the day. 

Some of the most common and severe symptoms of menopause include:

If you haven’t had a period in 12 months, and have noticed any of these symptoms, you could be entering menopause.   

Your OB-GYN may have brought up synthetic hormone replacement therapy. This works for many women, but can cause some unpleasant side effects. However, there’s a similar option in the form of bioidentical hormone therapy.

What is BioTE?

Bioidentical hormones are developed from plant-sourced natural estrogens. These hormones are natural and have the same structure as your own hormones. With BioTE, bioidentical hormones are contained in small pellets that can be inserted into your buttock, allowing your body to get a slow, steady dose of natural hormones over time.

Advantages of BioTE

Some of the main advantages of BioTE hormone therapy aren’t just that you are getting a natural, bioidentical hormone. The delivery system means you don’t have to mess with topical gels or creams, endure a vaginal ring, remember to take daily tablets, or find places to stick hormone dispensing patches on your body. 

Instead, you simply have a quick procedure in our office. The pellet is inserted through an incision so tiny it doesn’t need a stitch to close it -- just a strip of sterile tape. The dosage will be carefully determined by your FNP, and you’ll be scheduled to come in a few times a year for replacement. 

With the help of BioTE, you can better manage your weight and have clearer, smoother skin. In addition, taking replacement hormones can possibly lower your risk of heart disease and dementia, and has been shown to reduce the risk of bone fractures due to osteoporosis.

If you’re ready to address menopausal symptoms naturally, call our Odessa, Texas, office at 432-200-9052 or book an appointment online today.
