How BioTE® Therapy Relieves the Symptoms of Menopause

Every woman goes through menopause, the biological process that ends her reproductive years. It generally starts between the ages of 45 and 55 and lasts about five years.

Menopause may be a natural process, but low estrogen levels can bring a host of unpleasant side effects. From hot flashes and mood swings to breast tenderness and low sex drive, the symptoms of menopause can significantly reduce your quality of life.

At Vibrant Woman Health Center in Lafayette, Louisiana, Patricia Nevils, MD, and our team are here to help. We offer BioTE®  hormone pellet therapy to help you find relief from menopausal symptoms. BioTE is bioidentical hormone replacement that’s derived from plants and is easy for your body to absorb.

Book a consultation with Dr. Nevils to learn more about how BioTE therapy can relieve the symptoms of menopause that bother you the most.

Common side effects of menopause

As you get older, your body slows its production of the female hormone estrogen. Your menstrual periods become irregular and eventually stop completely. The time before menopause is called perimenopause. Perimenopause and menopause together can last well over 10 years for many women.

Menopause marks the end of your reproductive years, but it affects more than just your fertility. Menopause often brings changes that affect the way you feel physically, mentally, and emotionally.

It’s common to experience one or more of the following symptoms with menopause:

The symptoms of menopause can be intense, making it difficult to enjoy your daily life. If you’re living with symptoms of menopause that are affecting your quality of life, it’s time to talk to Dr. Nevils about hormone replacement therapy.

BioTE treats severe symptoms of menopause

BioTE hormone pellet therapy utilizes bioidentical hormones to ease the symptoms of menopause. Hormone replacement tames many unpleasant symptoms by effectively replacing the hormones your body no longer makes.

At Vibrant Woman Health Center, we offer bioidentical hormones. That means the hormones are chemically identical to what your body has stopped producing. BioTE hormones are easy for your body to absorb and use, maximizing symptom relief.

With hormone pellet therapy, BioTE pellets are inserted just below the surface of your skin. You get hormones continuously released into your body. This method helps eliminate highs and lows that can come along with other treatments like oral or topical hormone replacement methods.

After starting BioTE therapy, you can expect to begin noticing symptom relief in as little as 2-4 weeks. It can take up to six months for optimal benefits to develop, and each round of BioTE lasts up to six months.

BioTE therapy can help you feel better as you navigate menopause. Dr. Nevils works with you to ensure you’re getting the right dose of hormones, adjusting your treatment plan as needed. 

If you’re living with unpleasant symptoms of menopause, it’s time to find out if hormone replacement with BioTE is right for you.
