Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy Q & A

Why do I need bioidentical hormone replacement therapy?

Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) is an innovative way to replenish your hormone levels by using natural SottoPelle pellets that are designed for you and your symptoms specifically. BHRT may be right for you if you experience any of the following issues:

  • Low libido
  • Hot flashes
  • Night sweats
  • Mood swings
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Vaginal dryness
  • Erectile dysfunction
  • Unexplained weight gain

Plus, because hormone fluctuations can make it difficult for you to both fall asleep and stay asleep, you’re left feeling fatigued all day. Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy can help with this problem, too.

How do bioidentical hormone replacement pellets work?

Bioidentical hormone replacement pellets with SottoPelle are compounded specifically for you based on testing to evaluate your needs. They’re inserted under your skin, typically in your hip area, during a short in-office procedure at Nurturing You Women’s Health & Wellness.

This natural pellet delivery system provides a steady, slow stream of hormones directly to your bloodstream 24/7 whenever your body needs it. Because your body is able to control the release of hormones just as it did when your ovaries or testicles were fully functioning, the low hormone side effects you experience gradually start to diminish.  

How long do bioidentical hormone replacement pellets last?

SottoPelle bioidentical hormone replacement pellets are long-lasting. Dr. Harris finds that most men and women experience dramatic results for as long as three to six months before symptoms slowly start returning. Because SottoPelle bioidentical hormone replacement pellets are designed for your own body and are entirely natural, it’s perfectly safe to have the treatment repeated again as needed.

As an alternative to pellets, or to enhance the benefits of them, Dr. Harris also sometimes recommends bioidentical hormone creams, troches, and other formularies. These types of BHRT treatments don’t provide hormone delivery 24/7 as pellets do though. They’re only effective while using them and can provide instant relief if it’s taking time for pellets to start working.
