Hormone Restoration Therapy

What is hormone restoration therapy?

Although often associated with women, both men and women experience changes in hormone levels as they get older. At Premier Women’s Health Associates, hormone restoration therapy refers to the treatments Dr. Ott offers to optimize hormone levels in both women and older men experiencing symptoms associated with these hormonal shifts.   

Hormone restoration therapy relieves symptoms to improve your quality of life. It also improves your health and reduces the risk of chronic conditions associated with aging, such as osteoporosis and heart disease.

Am I a good candidate for hormone restoration therapy?

Dr. Ott determines if you’re a good candidate for hormone restoration therapy during your consultation. He offers hormone restoration therapy to women and men seeking relief from the symptoms of menopause, perimenopause, andropause, low estrogen, and low testosterone levels.

Symptoms associated with changes in hormone levels include:

  • Hot flashes
  • Night sweats
  • Fatigue
  • Low libido
  • Mood changes
  • Vaginal dryness 
  • Erectile dysfunction
  • Difficulty sleeping

If you experience these symptoms, Dr. Ott determines if they’re related to a decrease in hormones and develops a treatment plan to help you get relief. 

How is hormone restoration given?

Dr. Ott offers BioTE® hormone pellet therapy to restore your hormone levels. The BioTE pellet contains natural plant-based hormones that have the same chemical structure as the hormones produced by your body. Dr. Ott places the pellet under your skin, where it provides a steady dose of hormones to optimize levels and provide consistent relief.

With BioTE, Dr. Ott can custom-design your hormone restoration pellet so you only get the hormones your body needs. 

What results can I expect with hormone therapy?

You should notice an improvement in your symptoms within a few days after the placement of your BioTE pellet. However, for some people, it can take a week or two. 

Once your hormone levels are restored, you should feel more energized and happy. Your sleep may also improve, as well as your libido and overall physical health. 

Your pellet continues to supply a steady dose of hormones for several months. Dr. Ott closely monitors your hormone levels and symptoms and replaces your pellet when needed.
