Frequently Asked Questions

What are bio-identical hormones?
They are derived from a natural plant source of soy and hand compounded to be biologically identical
to human form of estradiol and testosterone. The body is given what it can no longer produce.

What can I expect BHRT to do for me?
The quality of life given back to every man or woman is second to none.
* Increased energy levels
* Restore or increase sexual drive
* Consistency in moods - no more roller coaster effect
* Relief from anxiety and depression
* Decreased body fat
* Increased mental clarity and focus
* Greater capacity for getting the body in shape

How often will I need treatment?
It depends on the person, but anywhere from 4-6 months.

Are there any side effects or complications?
Unlike other forms of hormone therapy, there are virtually no side effects.

I get horrible headaches, will this help me?
Yes! SottoPelle® has had great success with hormonally related headaches.

Why doesn't my doctor suggest Hormone Replacement Pellet Therapy as an option?
The great majority of physician training is on synthetic hormones. More than likely they were never
trained on the use of bio-identical hormone therapy.

If I am a woman, do I still need estrogen?
Bio-identical absorbable estrogen is the most important hormone for a woman to protect her against
heart attack, stroke, as well as osteoporosis and Alzheimer's. Synthetic estrogen taken orally does not
offer the universal benefits.

I have no libido, what will this do for that if anything?
Good hormone balance will greatly improve your sexual desires.

Will I grow unwanted hair from the testosterone?
There is less chance of hair growth with bio-identical hormones.

Do I need other medications?
Unless the uterus has been removed, women will also need progesterone, to protect the uterine lining
