Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) Q&A
Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) is a medical treatment designed to address hormonal imbalances in the body, particularly in women during menopause and, to a lesser extent, in men experiencing age-related hormonal changes. BHRT involves the use of hormones that are chemically identical to those naturally produced by the human body. If you are interested to learn more about BHRT, Please contact us today or book an appointment. We are located at 107 Edinburg S. Drive, Suite 215, Cary, NC 27511.

Do you feel that you are just not yourself lately? Are you struggling with frequent mood swings, irritability, anxiety, and depression? Have you noticed a lack in your sexual desire? Does weight gain and loss of muscle mass have you concerned? As we age both men and women often experience negative effects because their hormones become unbalanced. Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) might be the solution! At InShape Medical our medical practitioners have extensive training in Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy treatments for men and women. Why might Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy become necessary? What is BHRT and what are the benefits of bioidentical hormones? How can InShape Medical help?
Our hormones are like little chemical messengers that travel through our body and help coordinate complex processes. Physical growth, your metabolism, and fertility are all affected by your hormone levels. Hormones also influence the way our immune system functions. And hormones can alter our behavior and create mood swings. There are many factors that can contribute to hormone imbalances in our body such as the aging process, diabetes, underactive or overactive thyroid, stress, and medications. A consultation with one of our knowledgeable practitioners will help identify the contributing factors involved in your hormone imbalances.
Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) is used as a treatment for men and women who experience a drop in hormone levels or an imbalance in hormone levels. These are manmade hormones that have been developed from plant-based components. Often estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone are the most commonly replicated hormones used for treatments. Many women have found that BHRT has significantly relieved the symptoms associated with menopause and perimenopause. BHRT provides relief from hormone imbalances contributing to frequent mood swings, insomnia, night sweats, weight gain, lack of energy, and memory loss. Men who have chosen BHRT for their hormone imbalances have experienced an increase in their sexual desire, and energy levels. They have also noticed an increase in muscle mass, mental clarity, and relief from anxiety and/or depression.
InShape Medical specializes in Pellet Therapy for men and women suffering from hormone imbalance. For women a very small pellet is inserted just under the skin into the upper part of the buttocks. Men will usually have a pellet inserted just under the skin into the upper part of the buttocks, or into the flanks. While results will vary for each patient, men can expect testosterone pellets to provide symptom relief for five to six months before a new pellet will need to be inserted. Women can expect relief from symptoms for three to six months before a replacement pellet is necessary. This method provides slow and consistent release of bioidentical hormones to keep balance in the hormone levels in your body. Pellet therapy is a better natural approach to hormone replacement therapy. This natural approach means our patients experience fewer negative interactions within their body. Often pills and creams result in feeling the negative effects of ups and downs in hormone levels. A steady flow of hormones can get you back to feeling like yourself and engaging in the activities you love.
