Hormone replacement therapy is a treatment that is often introduced at the beginning of a gender affirming journey. But it’s also a treatment that helps maintain physical changes in the body, making it part of a necessary and healthy commitment for life.
For most considering or undergoing gender affirmation procedures, hormone replacement therapy is a small sacrifice to make when continuing your gender transformation journey, but it can come with its own set of unwanted side effects: frequent needles, creams and monotonous, inconvenient regimens.
BioTE bio-identical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) pelleting solves a lot of the inconveniences associated with implementing a hormone therapy routine. It's a "set it and forget it" method. Instead of daily injections or cream applications, you can undergo a simple pellet injection in as little as twice a year. No more daily shots, no more creams, no more daily management of your levels. Sounds good, right?
Here’s what you need to know about BioTE Pellet Hormone Replacement Therapy:
What is BioTE pellet hormone therapy?
BioTE is bio-identical and all-natural. Qualitative evidence suggests bio-identical and all-natural hormones have fewer side effects and are a generally more effective than synthetic hormones.
Furthermore, BioTE pelleting involves a small pellet inserted under your skin. It is administered in a simple procedure and releases your hormone dosage in consistent and steady levels throughout the treatment course. BioTE pelleting significantly reduces hormone level fluctuations. With constant and measured hormone release, BioTE all but eliminates variations in your hormone levels, allowing for a steadier experience as well as greater emotional and physical well-being.
Pelleting positively changes your routine
From daily to about every four months, depending on your specific hormonal needs, BioTE pellets can be administered as little as twice a year during a simple outpatient treatment at your certified BioTE Medical Provider. BioTE pelleting can vary based on blood work. Your experience will be unique to your needs, tolerance and adjustment.
Pelleting eliminates unwanted side effects
Shots and creams can also be inconsistent in effect and impact, depending on any number of factors. Swings, imbalances and other undesirable side effects can result from just the daily fluctuations in dosage and hormonal levels. They can also result from the type, make and quality of the hormone’s you are using to achieve your balance.
Everything from your hair patterns, energy levels and general temperament, with BioTE pelleting you will experience gradual, more natural changes, compared to traditional hormone supplemental therapies.
