Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy Q&A

What is bioidentical hormone replacement therapy?

Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy uses synthetic hormones to increase the hormone levels in your bloodstream and throughout your body, reducing unwelcome signs of aging. With older age, especially over 40, hormone levels often shift dramatically. 

For example, men usually have low levels of testosterone, and women may experience low estrogen levels. Fortunately, treatment at New Vitality Centers offers you the chance to have fewer signs of aging and a reduced risk of future problems.

What are the symptoms of hormone imbalance?

Age-related hormone imbalance can cause:

  • Low energy
  • Weight gain
  • Loss of muscle
  • Increased body fat
  • Depression 
  • Low bone density
  • Sexual dysfunction
  • Erectile dysfunction (ED) in men
  • Vaginal dryness in women
  • Hot flashes 
  • Sleeping disturbances
  • Mood swings

Bioidentical hormones are exactly like those your body naturally produces, diminishing these and other bothersome effects associated with aging.

Hormone therapy can reduce the symptoms of menopause in women and andropause (male menopause) in men.

Is bioidentical hormone replacement therapy right for me?

The New Vitality Centers providers determine if you’re a candidate for hormone therapy after discussing your symptoms and medical history. They complete a physical exam, check your vital signs, and order blood tests that assess current levels of testosterone, estrogen, and other hormones.

What should I expect during bioidentical hormone replacement?

New Vitality Centers offers tiny, time-released pellets that your specialist implants just underneath the skin, typically three times per year. The procedure takes just 20 minutes. Your hormone specialist makes a small incision, inserts the pellets near your upper buttocks area, and closes the incisions. Over time, the pellets steadily release hormones into your body.

You may need to replace the pellets every 4-6 months, or as needed, to maintain ideal hormone balance long-term. The pellets are safe, natural, and effective. Your provider lets you know when to schedule your next appointment, and they monitor your hormone levels using periodic blood tests and an assessment of your symptoms.

You might also be interested in Botox®, shockwave therapy for ED, platelet-rich plasma (PRP) for skin revitalization and hair restoration, IV therapy, or other anti-aging solutions available with the New Vitality Centers providers.
