Frequently Asked Questions
Most frequent questions and answers about hormone replacement therapy
What is HRT with Biote Pellets?
Bioidentical hormone replacement pellet therapy is a personalized approach to hormone replacement. It allows a patient’s body to absorb the right level of hormones at the right time using a delivery method the body can process efficiently. Pellets are small capsules (about the size of a grain of rice) that contain bioidentical hormones like testosterone or estrogen. A bioidentical hormone is the exact molecular structure of hormones the body produces naturally.
What Happens During a Biote Pellet Treatment?
The pellet is inserted under the skin, where hormones enter the bloodstream as they dissolve over several months. Our studies show that patients may see the effects of hormone optimization up to four weeks after a pellet insertion. Everyone is unique, and some people may feel the effects immediately, while others may take up to two or more pellet insertions before they feel full effects.
Hormones delivered by pellet therapy bypass the liver, do not affect clotting factors, do not increase the risk of thrombosis, and avoid the fluctuations of hormone levels some patients may experience.* Biote bioidentical hormone pellets are made from soy or the yam plant to create estradiol and testosterone molecules, unlike synthetic hormones, which are made from animal parts or urine and have a different molecular structure than what the body produces.
How Long Until I Feel Better?
Each patient’s symptoms are unique, and so is each path to hormone optimization. Some patients report some relief as soon as four weeks, but full hormone optimization may take six months—many patients report feeling more benefits after the second insertion.
