Learn More Sbout Bio-Identical Hormone Therapy
Taylor Medical Group provides bio-identical hormone therapy for both women and men. Bio-identical hormones are compounded hormones which are identical to those made by the body. They achieve the best physiological effects because hormone receptors recognize them fully and bind completely to receptors. Synthetic hormones are structurally altered so that they can be patented and sold by pharmaceutical companies. As the result of these chemical alterations, synthetic hormones have some beneficial effects of bio-identical hormone but with necessary unwanted side effects.
Bio-identical hormones are most commonly prescribed to treat symptoms of hormonal imbalance in women and men, such as premature aging, hot flashes, night sweats, decreased libido, erectile dysfunction, anorgasmia, thinning hair, decreased muscle mass, memory problems, fatigue, weight gain, mood swings, and irritability. Hormones impact every aspect of our health and imbalances can cause a wide vary of symptoms that may be misdiagnosed as depression, bipolar disorder, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, ADHD, sleep and anxiety disorders and sexual dysfunction. Hormone imbalances can worsen medical conditions and decrease vitality, energy, metabolism and stamina.
Bio-identical hormones can provide the best results for patients with hormone problems without unwanted side effects. They may be customized for each patient since they are made by compounding pharmacists. Through salivary hormone testing, we can accurately measure hormones to identify hormone imbalances that are often missed by blood testing. Salivary testing allows our doctors to monitor hormone therapy and provide accurate hormone dosing which results in optimal outcomes. Bio-identical hormones that we prescribe include progesterone, estrogen, oxytocin, testosterone, thyroid and growth hormone and cortisol. They may be prescribed as a capsule, cream or pellet.

BHRT Hormone Pellets
BHRT Hormone Pellets: Bio-identical hormone replacement (BHRT) can be prescribed in several forms that include capsules, creams and pellets. BHRT can enhance vitality, muscle mass and energy levels along with improving bone, brain, breast and heart health. It can also improve focus memory, metabolism, sexual performance while decreasing depression, anxiety, and weight gain.*
Although all forms are effective- Progesterone, Estrogen and Testosterone hormone pellets have been proven to provide a more consistent delivery method. Patient experiences and clinical outcomes are also better. Pellets are great for patients that cant tolerate oral hormone therapy or dont respond to oral or topical hormone therapy.*
Hormone pellets can deliver consistent, stable levels of hormones for up to 4 months. There are no fluctuations in hormone levels as commonly seen with oral and topical delivery methods. This lack of fluctuation explains why pellets are more effective in treating in hormone associated conditions and symptoms.*
BHRT Hormone Pellets appear to work better for hormone related conditions such as insomnia, mood and anxiety disorders, memory problems, sexual dysfunction, osteoporosis, fibrocystic breast disease, and many other hormone related conditions. Bioidentical hormone pellets provide the most benefits in the treatment of hormone related symptoms in men and women without the harmful side effects of synthetic hormones.*

How is The Implant Procedure Done
A pellet implant is a minor surgical procedure performed under local anesthesia. The doctor makes a small incision after first injecting lidocaine into the skin. A customized dose of hormone pellet about half the size of a pea is implanted under the skin and then a steri-strip is placed over the incision along with a protective film. It takes about five to seven days for the incision to heal. Patients can go back to their regular activities immediately following the procedure but should avoid abdominal exercises for at least 48 hours following the implant.
Dosing is dependent upon your clinical symptoms and hormone test results. Saliva hormone testing is best since blood hormone levels may fluctuate. Initially, our doctor may supplement your pellet therapy until the right pellet dosage can be achieved. Each persons metabolism is different which affects how long the pellet last. Pellets may initially need to be inserted more often than every four months until the right dosage is achieved.
Unlike other hormone therapies that must be taken or applied once or twice a day, patients with BHRT Hormone Pellets don’t have to remember to take their medication so compliance isn’t an issue.
