Hormones are necessary for the proper functioning of the human body. They are responsible for a wide variety of processes, including growth, metabolism, and reproduction. Hormone imbalances can cause a variety of problems in both men and women. We offer bioidentical hormone therapy in Novato to restore the perfect hormone balance, helping you reclaim your youthful vitality and energy.

Signs of Hormone Imbalance in Men and Women

The human body is made up of several types of cells, each with their own specific function. In order for these cells to work properly, they must be able to communicate with each other. They do this by releasing chemicals called hormones into the bloodstream. Hormones are like messengers that travel through the blood and tell the cells what to do. They tell the cells when to grow, when to reproduce, and how to function.

Sometimes, the body can produce too much or too little of a certain hormone, leading to a hormone imbalance. Hormone imbalances can wreak havoc on the human body, and both men and women are susceptible to their effects. For women, hormone imbalance can cause irregular periods, hot flashes, weight gain, anxiety, depression, and fertility problems. For men, hormone imbalance can cause erectile dysfunction, low libido, hair loss, fatigue, and depression.

We are proud to be a leading provider of Biote. Biote hormone replacement is a personal approach to treatment. Your body will be able to absorb the correct level of hormones, on a proper schedule, to ensure maximum efficiency. If you experience the signs and symptoms of hormone imbalance, bioidentical hormone therapy in Novato can restore your body’s optimal and youthful hormone levels.

Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy FAQs

How is bioidentical hormone replacement done?

BHRT can be administered in a variety of ways, including creams, gels, pills, patches, and more. The method of administration for your hormone therapy in Novato will depend on the specific condition being treated. However, the most effective form of administration is a subcutaneous pellet inserted underneath your skin. The hormone pellet releases a steady stream of the chosen hormones to supplement your body’s natural hormone production, thus avoiding peaks and valleys in hormone levels.

How long do the hormone pellets last?

How long your hormone pellets last depends on numerous factors. Age, activity level, metabolism, and other factors affect the longevity of hormone pellets. The average is 3-4 months, but some people may need them every 2 months and some may only need them every 6 months. Your medical provider will determine how often you need hormone pellets.
