Female Hormone Replacement in Rochester, NY

Female Hormone Pellet Therapy

We are proud to be one of the first in Rochester offering hormone pellet therapy to assist women in naturally balancing their hormones. The pellets are about the size of a grain of rice and derived from natural sources which embody the molecular structure of hormones found in the body. The pellets are inserted under the skin in a simple in-office procedure. Over the next 3 months following the procedure the pellets are naturally absorbed into the body at a controlled rate providing optimum hormone levels.

Treatment Options

Bio-identical Hormone Therapy

Bioidentical hormones are manmade hormones derived from plant estrogens that are chemically identical to those to the human body produces. Estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone are among those most commonly replicated and used in treatment. Bioidentical hormones come in various forms, including:

Pills

Patches

Creams

Gels

Injections

BHRT is typically used as people age and hormone levels drop, particularly for women who are in perimenopause or menopause. It’s used to increase the levels of the hormone that have dropped and improve moderate to severe menopause symptoms, including:

Hot flashes

Night sweats

Mood changes

Memory loss

Weight gain

Sleep issues

Loss of interest in sex or pain during sex

In addition to helping with symptoms, hormone replacement therapy may also reduce your risk for diabetes, tooth loss, and cataracts. There is some evidence that it can help improve skin thickness, hydration, and elasticity, and even reduce wrinkles.

Estrogen

Estrogen is the hormone that controls a woman’s monthly cycle. It is the hormone that causes a young girl’s development into an adult during puberty. It creates changes, such as growth of the breasts, hair in the pubic area and under arms, as well as the beginning of menstruation. Even after the puberty phase is completed, estrogen continues to work, helping control menstruation cycle, protecting bone health and keeping cholesterol in control. Estrogen is also crucial to fertility.

Why is Estrogen needed?

Menopause is defined as the natural decline in female hormones released by the ovaries, this includes estrogen. This can also occur in women who have had surgical removal of the ovaries, lack of reproductive hormones or radiation therapy.

Menopause is a stage in a woman’s life that puts her body in flux in various ways. Hormones that have been regulating a woman’s reproductive cycle, sex drive and mood decrease. This natural process often has a negative impact on a woman’s overall quality of life.
