Cheyenne OBGYN is pleased to offer bio-identical hormone replacement therapy for patients who may suffer from symptoms of a hormonal imbalance. Our clinic has found great results with BioTE® Medical – a hormone replacement pellet therapy for both men and women.
Who is hormone therapy for?
If you are suffering from extreme fatigue, decreased mental focus or memory, irritability, anxiety or depression, difficulty sleeping or reduced sexual desire, BioTE® Hormone Replacement Therapy may be for you.
What is BioTE®?
A bio-identical hormone replacement uses small pellets that have been created to replicate the molecular structure of your body’s natural hormones. Sourced from plants, these natural pellets release hormones into your system just as your body was designed to. This minimizes the side effects commonly seen with synthetic hormone therapy.
What does the process look like?
Our team at Cheyenne OBGYN will first have you visit the clinic for an initial assessment and bloodwork to test your current hormone levels. Based on this information and our initial consultation, we will determine if you are a candidate for BioTE® therapy.
If you are a candidate, your follow up appointment will be scheduled for the insertion of your custom created BioTE® pellet. This visit only takes a few minutes where the insertion site is numbed, a small incision is made, and the pellet is inserted and then covered with a small bandage. Because the pellet is as small as a grain of rice, there are no stitches needed for the incision and the process is painless.
Pellets will release a consistent level of hormones over a 3 to 6 month period and will not have to be replaced prior. We will schedule follow up blood work to test your levels after the insertion – typically 4 to 6 weeks post pellet insertion.
