Depending on the severity of a hormone imbalance, it can range from a mild inconvenience to a completely debilitating disorder. Women at different stages of life, especially menopause, are at risk for a hormone imbalance. If you have started to notice certain symptoms, including trouble concentrating and mood swings, you may want to consider bioidentical hormone replacement therapy, also known as BHRT.
At Orchidia Medical Group, we offer a few different options for bioidentical hormone replacement therapy. Pellecome hormone pellets is one option, and topical treatments are another. Visit our practice in Naples, FL to find out which option is right for your needs. Contact us today to schedule your consultation!
What is BHRT?
Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy, also known as BHRT, is a therapy that is designed to give you back your quality of life. When your hormones are unbalanced you can experience a whole host of unpleasant symptoms. These can be mildly uncomfortable, such as hot flashes, but many women experience symptoms so severe that they have to seek out treatment. Hormone balancing is a delicate practice, because too much in the wrong direction can throw your body out of rhythm even more.
Topical hormone therapy is a convenient way to keep your hormones level. It is usually necessary to apply topical hormone treatments once a day, which can be done as a part of your morning routine or right before bed. Women with liver problems are generally not considered to be good candidates for oral hormone treatments, which is not an issue when it comes to topical bioidentical hormone replacement therapy.
One of the benefits of this treatment is that you can be supplied with enough topical treatment that you won’t have to visit your provider as often. Other hormone treatments, like injections, can sometimes require monthly visits to the doctor. Topical treatments, on the other hand, can always be applied in the comfort of your own home.
Pellecome™ produces bioidentical hormone replacement therapy pellets, which are an effective way to balance the hormones. These pellets were developed by Dr. Enrique G. Jacome, a board-certified Ob-Gyn, to safely help women to experience relief from menopause and other hormone imbalances.
Pellets are tiny, about the size of a grain of rice, and they are inserted underneath the skin. The main benefit of pellets is that they gradually release hormones, which means you won’t have to worry about forgetting to take a pill. Lapses in treatment can cause other symptoms to appear, which is why many women are opting for Pellecome™ pellets.
