What are the signs you might need hormone replacement therapy?

Identifying the need for bioidentical hormone replacement therapy begins with understanding your body. Common signs include sleep disturbances, weight gain, reduced libido, and mood fluctuations. These symptoms often indicate a hormonal imbalance, which can be effectively managed with bioidentical hormone replacement therapy. This therapy uses hormones that are chemically identical to those your body produces, ensuring a natural and effective approach to restoring hormonal balance.

How do I know if BHRT is right for me?

When exploring hormone therapy options, bioidentical hormone replacement therapy pellets may come up as a viable solution. Pellet therapy involves placing small pellets under the skin, releasing hormones steadily over time. This method can be particularly beneficial for those seeking a convenient, long-term solution to hormone imbalances. Dr. Portales and the team at OC Medical Tustin will assess your specific needs to determine if pellet therapy is the right choice for you.

How does pellet therapy compare to other forms of hormone replacement?

Pellet therapy differs from other hormone replacement methods in its delivery and consistency. Unlike creams or injections, hormone pellet therapy provides a consistent release of hormones, mimicking the body's natural rhythms. This steady approach can lead to fewer side effects and a more balanced hormonal state. Patients often report improved energy levels, mood stability, and overall quality of life with pellet therapy.
