How Safe is Natural Hormone Replacement Therapy?
Do you suffer from menopause symptoms due to a hormone imbalance? Devine Aesthetic Solutions offers bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) as a safe and effective treatment option. Our providers know that the decision to start any treatment is a deeply personal one, which is why we work closely with patients in Arlington, TX and the surrounding areas.
If you live in Fort Worth, Midlothian, Euless, or the Mid-Cities, call to meet with internal medicine specialist Dr. Jeanine Thomas and discuss the benefits of bioidentical hormone therapy. Our goal is to provide comprehensive and personalized care.
What symptoms can BHRT treat?
Bioidentical hormone therapy can successfully manage frustrating menopause symptoms like hot flashes, night sweats, fatigue, and weight fluctuations. It can also address reduced libido, erectile dysfunction, and loss of muscle mass in men who suffer from low testosterone (andropause).
Though BHRT (sometimes called pellet therapy) is commonly associated with menopause and andropause, it can also treat other health issues related to a hormone imbalance in the body.
Is hormone replacement safe?
BHRT is considered safe when done correctly and under the supervision of a medical provider. This is why Dr. Thomas must perform an assessment of your hormone levels before making any recommendations for treatment. Your appointment will include a review of your health history, lifestyle habits, and possible triggers that could be contributing to your symptoms.
However, not everyone is a candidate for hormone replacement in Arlington, TX. Those with a medical or family history of blood clots, stroke, or certain cancers may not receive pellet therapy at this time.
How does BHRT work?
Devine Aesthetic Solutions offers plant-based hormones to perform your treatment. The hormones we use are designed to be identical to the hormones naturally produced by your own body.
Bioidentical hormone therapy is administered in the form of pellets that are inserted just under the skin. The pellets dissolve slowly, releasing very small amounts of the hormone over the course of 3 – 6 months before needing to be replaced. Dr. Thomas may re-evaluate your hormone levels and adjust the dosage as needed.
Are there any side effects to BHRT?
Some people experience mild side effects like trouble sleeping and weight fluctuations after pellet therapy. These should abate as your hormones reach healthier levels. If the side effects persist or become uncomfortable, call our office so Dr. Thomas can adjust your treatment plan accordingly. We also provide post-treatment support to ensure you maintain the benefits of hormone replacement long-term.
When to expect results from pellet therapy
It takes between 4 – 6 weeks for treatment to become effective, so you should expect to feel relief from symptoms at that time. Timelines can vary, so it’s important to communicate with Dr. Thomas about any changes in your symptoms or overall health. Our patients notice improvements like more energy, better sleep, and boosted sex drive and performance.
