Women’s Bioidentical Hormones
Hormone production begins to decline as women age. These hormonal deficiencies can cause a number of symptoms including weight gain, hot flashes, decreased libido, moodiness, and fatigue. Kallal Medical Group offers a variety of bioidentical hormone replacement therapies that can be guided by your symptoms and clinical needs.
Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Treatment Options
Pellet therapy offers a quick, long lasting solution to hormone deficiency. Pellets are placed under the skin in a simple, in-office procedure in as little as 20 minutes. The effects of pellet introduction last for three to five months and are monitored by blood tests. Hormone levels can be adjusted before each procedure to ensure the best results for you.
Topical creams and gels are used as an alternative for patients that prefer a daily routine. The medication is compounded locally and can be applied to the arms or legs. As with pellets, levels are monitored by blood tests and can be easily adjusted based on your symptoms.
Oral hormone replacement therapy has been around for decades, and while higher risk than the previously mentioned therapies, it can be a safe and effective option for relieving the symptoms of hormone deficiency.
