Hormones Q & A

What are bioidentical hormones?

Bioidentical hormones are used in natural hormone replacement therapy (HRT) for women and men. These hormones can offer relief from symptoms common during the transitional years of menopause and andropause.

The term “bioidentical hormones” refers to hormones are molecularly identical to the ones made by your own body. Bioidentical hormones are produced from plant tissues, which are scientifically engineered in laboratories to precisely match natural human hormones.

These bioidentical hormones are usually administered as:

  • Creams
  • Gels
  • Pills
  • Pellets

All these options can help your body to absorb the hormones more easily.

How does hormone replacement help men?

With age, you may notice you tire more easily, feel less motivated, or realize you’ve lost your zest in the boardroom or bedroom. Hormone therapy can help relieve these symptoms and many others, including:

  • Lack of initiative or assertiveness
  • Weight gain for no obvious reason
  • Muscle loss
  • Inability to build muscle despite consistent workouts
  • Less enjoyment of life
  • Poor performance in work or sports
  • Insulin resistance or diabetes
  • Belly fat
  • Depression
  • Sleep apnea

If you’re experiencing any of these symptoms, Dr. Saxena can help. She specializes in hormone replacement therapy with natural compounded creams, testosterone injections, and pellet insertion therapy.

How does hormone replacement help women?

Hormonal imbalances, during menopause or your monthly cycle, can trigger a host of symptoms, including:

  • PMS
  • Hot flashes
  • Mood swings
  • Irritability
  • Insomnia
  • Loss of sex drive
  • Vaginal dryness and painful intercourse
  • Dry skin
  • Sagging or tender breasts
  • Depression
  • Brain fog
  • Lack of energy
  • Depression
  • Anxiety

Dr. Saxena helps relieve these symptoms with bioidentical hormone replacement therapy, which restores hormonal balance.

What is hormonal pellet therapy?

Hormonal pellet therapy uses tiny pellets of bioidentical hormones that consistently release small doses of hormones. Dr. Saxena inserts the pellets, which are smaller than a grain of rice, under the fatty tissue in your skin.

Once implanted, the pellets gradually release hormones into your bloodstream. The hormone pellet implantation procedure is easily performed in Dr. Saxena’s office.

Because the hormones used in pellet therapy are natural, the treatment is ideal if you’d like the benefits of natural hormones.
