Hormone Replacement Therapy for Women, Menopause Hormone Therapy

by vspot in Blog

Regular hormone testing for women will reveal whether hormones are optimized. This may help to avoid hormonal imbalances in a woman’s endocrine system. The good news is that VSPOT’s Method of bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) may help balance female hormones.

What Causes Female Hormone Imbalance?

Hormone imbalance in women can occur as a result of aging and may reflect genetic predisposition to certain conditions. Hormone balance or imbalance, on the other hand, can be influenced by the foods we eat, the amount of exercise we get, and the amount of stress we are exposed to.

What Exactly Is the Endocrine System?

A hormonal imbalance in a woman’s endocrine system can result in a variety of problems. The endocrine system is a collection of glands that manufacture and distribute hormones throughout the body. Hormones in women do much more than just regulate mood and sexuality; they can also predict who is at risk for high blood sugar, low bone density, and thyroid problems.

What Problems Can Hormone Imbalance Cause?

When a female’s endocrine system suffers from a hormone imbalance, she may experience symptoms ranging from mild to severe. This indicates that either too many or too few of a woman’s hormones are produced somewhere within the endocrine system. Among the symptoms of a hormonal imbalance in women are:

  • Heavy, irregular, or unpleasant periods
  • Low bone density
  • Hot flashes and night sweats
  • Vaginal dryness
  • Breast tenderness
  • Indigestion
  • Constipation or diarrhea

What Kinds of Female Hormone Imbalance Therapies Are There?

When it comes to medical treatment for female hormone imbalance, there are three options. The first option is to do nothing to optimize hormones and hope that the patient feels better. The second approach is conventional medicine, which suggests treatment options that may mask a woman’s symptoms. In a matter of minutes, pellets can be inserted. Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) typically begins to work four to six weeks after a pellet insertion. However, each woman is unique, and some may require additional insertions for her body to dial in and achieve the best results.

WHY BIOTE:

THE BIOIDENTICAL DIFFERENCE

Complex chemicals, including human hormones, can be synthesized into forms that function as those made by the body, but that aren’t perfect duplicates at the molecular level. Hormone replacement therapy using these forms of hormone has related to statistical increases in cancer and other conditions. Although these numbers are small, one theory holds that the molecular differences between synthetic and natural hormones may be the cause. 

Bioidentical hormones, though still manmade, minimize differences at the molecular level. Although extensive research is ongoing, it’s thought that bioidentical versions of hormones have less risk of side effects than conventionally made artificial hormones. 

BHRT DELIVERY METHODS

Most HRT uses oral forms of hormones to supplement natural levels. Taken in pill form, these drugs must pass through your digestive system before being absorbed into your body and distributed. Though they remain effective through this delivery route, other methods are gaining popularity, providing more direct routes to the bloodstream. The VSPOT pellet system takes the advantages of BHRT and combines these with an implanted pellet delivery. 

THE ADVANTAGES OF BIOTE FOR BHRT

Subcutaneous pellets have an advantage of steady release. Oral drugs can cause wild swings in hormone levels, peaking after one dose then dwindling before your next pill. VSPOT pellets are, first of all, custom compounded by Food and Drug Administration registered pharmaceutical manufacturers, providing a high level of safety through per batch monitoring and FDA compliance oversight. 

VSPOT pellets are typically placed below the skin on your hip. The insertion process is simple and fast, once your hormonal needs are established and the right pellet formulation is chosen.
