Reproductive hormones aren’t there just to help men and women create children. Testosterone and estrogen play much bigger roles in the overall health of both sexes, and if these hormones start to decrease, there are many nasty side effects that pop up.

Let’s talk about one way to counteract low reproductive hormone levels: bioidentical hormone pellet therapy. At Bella Vita Med Spa, and at clinics across the country, this innovative approach is used to negate certain symptoms and make patients feel happier, healthier, and more like themselves.

What Is Bioidentical Hormone Pellet Therapy?

Hormone replacement therapy (HRT) typically involves the use of synthesized replacement hormones to bring levels back up in patients. Bioidentical hormone pellet therapy, on the other hand, is derived from natural sources – not grown in a lab.

These natural hormones are injected in pellet form to help balance levels in men’s and women’s bodies.

Because these hormones are identical to the ones your body naturally produces, the treatment is extremely effective and low-risk.

Symptoms of Low Reproductive Hormones in Women

Women’s reproductive hormone levels change throughout their lives. Pregnancy, perimenopause, and menopause are some of the biggest periods of fluctuation.

As a woman enters her menopausal years, her reproductive hormone levels drop substantially. Ovaries are shutting down and ovulation is coming to an end, which slows the production of estrogen. This can lead to a variety of common side effects, including:

  • Fatigue
  • Hot flashes
  • Trouble focusing
  • Decreased sex drive
  • Night sweats
  • Vaginal dryness
  • Anxiety/depression
  • Sleep issues

According to a study from doctors at Firelands Regional Medical Center, approximately 45 percent of women experience psychogenic symptoms (anger/irritability, anxiety/tension, depression, sleep disturbance, loss of concentration, and loss of self-esteem/confidence).

Another 75 percent of women experience vasomotor symptoms (hot flashes, night sweats, palpitations, and migraines).

Fortunately, BHRT can alleviate many of these symptoms.

Female patients of BHRT have reported feeling more in control and experiencing fewer migraines and menstrual-related headaches. Their hormone imbalance symptoms are minimized, and some studies (including one in the European Heart Journal) have indicated that the therapy can potentially help to prevent:

  • Heart disease
  • Breast cancer
  • Osteoporosis
  • Dementia

After at least four weeks of treatment, you’ll likely experience fewer perimenopausal or menopausal side effects. As your hormone levels continue to balance out, you’ll experience optimal results at about six months of BioTE hormone pellet therapy. These results include a better sex drive, higher muscle mass, and increased cognitive performance – among many others.

Symptoms of Low Reproductive Hormones in Men

Although the average man does not experience dramatic hormone level drops as women do, aging does naturally decrease testosterone levels in many males. If you’ve experienced any of the following symptoms, you may be dealing with low testosterone levels.

  • Low sex drive
  • Erectile dysfunction
  • Fatigue
  • Loss of lean muscle mass
  • Depression/anxiety
  • Irritability

These symptoms are treatable with BHRT. Talk to a professional clinician about balancing out your hormones and increasing testosterone levels.

Research has shown that hormone replacement therapy can help with fatigue, sleep issues, weight gain, sexual performance, mood, and a variety of other symptoms. Some male patients of pellet therapy even report thicker hair, improved focus, higher stamina, and better bone strength.

Roughly 20 to 40 percent of older men have a medical condition called hypogonadism and need some sort of testosterone replacement therapy (TRT). While traditional TRT has some drawbacks, including the potential for heart disease, successful pellet hormone therapy minimizes risks and gives your body just the right amount of hormones.
