BioTE® Hormone Pellet Therapy Q & A

What is BioTE?

BioTE is natural or bioidentical hormone replacement. The pellets serve as an alternative to oral hormones, patches, or creams.

The hormones in BioTE are plant-derived and duplicate the hormones your body produces naturally. You absorb and use the hormones just as if your body produced them. BioTe offers an alternative to synthetic hormones that are typically derived from animals.

What symptoms are addressed with BioTE therapy?

BioTE hormone therapy is particularly effective for women going through menopause and who are experiencing symptoms that disrupt their lives. Dr. Nevils may recommend BioTE to address:

  • Hot flashes and night sweats
  • Breast tenderness
  • Mood swings
  • Reduced libido
  • Vagina dryness
  • Insomnia
  • Depression

Dr. Nevils administers the hormones and helps you adjust your lifestyle to ease or completely erase the symptoms of menopause and improve your quality of life.

What are the benefits of BioTE?

BioTE is plant-derived and completely natural. Because the hormones are administered as pellets inserted just underneath the skin, you get a constant release of hormones. This means you avoid the highs and lows associated with oral or topical hormone replacement therapy.

BioTE relieves uncomfortable symptoms so you feel relaxed and like yourself, despite going through the major life change of menopause.

How are BioTE administered?

Dr. Nevils numbs a small area on your hip and creates a small incision. BioTE consists of tiny, rice-sized pellets, which are placed in the incision.

The insertion process is an outpatient procedure that takes a matter of minutes. It requires no stitches or recovery time.

When will I notice the effects of BioTE?

Women start to enjoy symptom relief in as little as 2-4 weeks. In some women, it may take up to six months to achieve optimal benefit from your BioTE treatment. Dr. Nevils monitors you while you’re on BioTE to ensure you’re getting the results you should.

The effects of BioTE last 3-6 months, to get you through the menopause transition. Dr. Nevils works with you to determine the right schedule for your follow-up treatments so your hormone levels stay as consistent as possible.
