Hormone Replacement Therapy Q & A

What are some signs of hormonal imbalance?

Your body produces a vast array of different hormones, each of which triggers certain functions. As the years pass, you produce lower volumes of certain hormones, which can lead to uncomfortable and disruptive symptoms. 

Some of the signs of hormonal imbalance in men include:

  • Erectile dysfunction
  • Swollen breast tissue
  • Hair loss
  • Loss of muscle mass
  • Infertility

Some of the signs of hormonal imbalance in women include:

  • Dry skin
  • Hot flashes
  • Night sweats
  • Vaginal dryness
  • Pain during sex

Both women and men might experience the following:

  • Headaches
  • Weight gain
  • Brain fog

Supplemental hormones can go a long way toward improving your weight management efforts. 

Just because hormone-triggered changes are a normal part of the aging process does not mean you have to accept them as inevitable. There are treatments that can help. 


How does bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) work?

Hormone replacement therapy uses synthetic hormones to supplement your body’s natural hormones. Bioidentical hormones are a type of synthetic hormones created from soy or other plant sources. 

Bioidentical hormones are chemically identical to the hormones you produce naturally. In fact, your system cannot distinguish the difference between your own hormones and bioidentical hormones. 

Because the changes mentioned above develop because of hormonal imbalance, restoring optimal hormone levels is an effective treatment for both women’s health and men’s health concerns.  


How long does it take to see results from bioidentical hormone replacement therapy?

It takes time for your body to adapt to any form of hormone supplementation, so be patient as you move through the process. Lab testing is the first step and helps practitioners create a customized hormone replacement plan. 

Butterfly MedSpa proudly offers BioTE®, a form of bioidentical hormone replacement therapy that delivers supplemental hormones using small pellets placed just beneath the surface of your skin. This system delivers a steady stream of hormones over a long period. 

Once you begin the process, pay attention to any changes you notice, and communicate with your practitioner. They can make adjustments over time. If you’d like more information, book a visit online or over the phone at your earliest convenience.
