Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy

Nacogdoches Women’s Services providers are certified to offer BioTE® Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT). We use BHRT to balance hormones in a way that helps patients reclaim their health.

What are the Signs and Symptoms of Hormonal Imbalance in Women?
Hormonal imbalances occur when there is too much or too little of a hormone in the bloodstream. Because of their essential role in the body, even the smallest hormonal imbalance can cause side effects throughout the body. There are a variety of symptoms of hormone imbalance in women including:

  • Fatigue
  • Night sweats
  • Hot flashes or flushes
  • Decreased sex drive
  • Weight gain
  • Trouble sleeping
  • Irritability
  • Anxiousness
  • Mood swings
  • Low mood
  • Discomfort during intercourse

BHRT may help relieve stress, foggy thinking, weight gain, sleep disturbances, or other symptoms. Some patients start to feel the benefits of hormone therapy in as little as four weeks, but full hormone optimization can take up to six months, depending on the individual’s needs, as well as the reinsertion plan that they decide to adopt. 

Additional benefits of BHRT:

  • Research has shown BioTE® treatment has a beneficial effect on cognitive function in postmenopausal women.
  • Research has shown BioTE® treatment may relieve the emotional symptoms of a hormonal imbalance including low mood, irritability, stress, and anxiousness.
  • Research has shown BioTE® treatment may help relieve the symptoms of hormone imbalance in women, including low mood, anxiousness, low sex drive, decreased bone density, and many other conditions.

Are you a candidate for BHRT?
BioTE® hormone therapy is customized for each patient to promote optimized BHRT benefits. Following lab work to look at an individual’s current hormone levels and other indicators of a hormone imbalance, we will schedule a personalized hormone consultation and a review of your blood panel to discuss treatment options.
