How Biote Can Ease the Symptoms of Perimenopause

Nov 10, 2021 | Skin Care


Hormones are chemical messengers that take control and regulate almost everything that goes on in your body. The most dramatic change in hormone levels hits when menopause begins. However, menopause doesn’t happen overnight. Before full-blown menopause occurs, there is perimenopause where your body’s production of estrogen and progesterone begins gradually slowing down.

As you begin perimenopause, you may not notice any changes at first. But as your hormone levels become more pronounced, you may begin to notice symptoms, such as:

  • Irregular periods
  • Mood swings
  • Hot flashes
  • Sleep problems
  • More frequent urinary or vaginal infections
  • Increased “bad” cholesterol levels
  • Decreased bone density

The problem is that these symptoms could last for months or even years before menopause starts. Biote can help ease the symptoms that many women experience during perimenopause.

Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy vs Traditional Hormone Replacement Therapy

Bio-identical hormones are natural hormones that are derived from plants. The hormones in Biote match the molecular structure of your hormones. Previously, hormone replacement therapies were limited to hormones derived from animal sources or synthetically-produced hormones, which were not identical to human hormones molecularly.

Reactions to hormones used in traditional hormone replacement therapies are unpredictable and often cause unpleasant side effects. Responses to Biote hormone replacement therapy are typically more predictable and stable.

Biote Treatment Customized Just for You

No two people are alike; therefore, your hormone replacement therapy should be customized to fit your unique needs. Biote therapy involves using subcutaneous pellets that contain tiny, custom-compounded natural hormones that help prevent the drastic roller-coaster side effects that traditional therapies can incur.

The Biote pellet-insertion process is fast and virtually painless. The pellets slowly dissolve in your body and most patients report some relief from their symptoms within 2 to 4 weeks, including:

  • Having more energy
  • Increased mental clarity
  • Regained muscle strength
  • Feeling younger
  • Greater ability to lose weight

It may take up to six months to experience the full effects of having your hormone balance restored.
