Balance Your Hormones in Quincy IL
The purpose of bioidentical hormones is to supplement when the body cannot produce adequate amounts of its own hormones. Restoring the body to optimal levels eases symptoms like hot flashes, low libido, fatigue, or mood changes. Bioidentical estrogens, progestins, and testosterone can provide welcome relief when hormones decline with age or other causes.

What Are Bioidentical Hormones?
Bioidentical hormones have a molecular structure identical to the hormones naturally produced in the human body. This means they will bind perfectly with existing hormone receptors and mimic how our innate hormones function.
Common bioidentical hormones include estradiol, progesterone, and testosterone. The hormones are scientifically formulated in a lab to match human hormones exactly. This technique differs from synthetic hormones with slightly altered structures.
While not without risks and side effects, bioidentical hormones more closely simulate normal physiology compared to synthetic versions. A trained hormone specialist can determine if bioidentical therapy is right for you.
How Does Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy Work?
If you are currently considering bioidentical hormone replacement, it helps to understand exactly how the process works. The BioTE method uses customized hormone pellets to restore optimal levels over time. Here’s an overview of pellet therapy:
During a brief in-office visit, your provider will numb the area around the upper buttocks where the pellets will be inserted by our certified provider. A small pocket is made using a trocar (insertion device), and the pellet implants – each smaller than a grain of rice—are placed under the skin. A bandage covers the insertion site to ensure proper placement during future treatment.
The pellets are made of bioidentical estradiol or testosterone in a compressed form. Once inserted, they absorb liquid from your body’s interstitial fluid and slowly release hormones. This process delivers a continuous, low dose of hormones into circulation as the pellets dissolve.
Most patients notice improvements within a few weeks as hormone levels normalize. But the full benefits typically take 4-6 months as the body adjusts and comes into balance. Follow-up pellet insertions are scheduled for every 3-6 months to maintain consistent hormone levels over the long term.
Why is it Important to Balance Your Hormones?
Hormones are chemical messengers that coordinate nearly every bodily process and function.
In Women, Low Or Fluctuating Estrogen, Progesterone, and Testosterone Can Lead to:
- Hot flashes, night sweats
- Vaginal dryness, discomfort
- Loss of libido
- Fatigue, insomnia
- Weight gain
- Anxiety, depression
- Brain fog, memory issues
In Men, Declining Testosterone (Andropause) Can Cause:
- Low sex drive, erection difficulties
- Loss of strength and muscle mass
- Mood changes – irritability, depression
- Weight gain, fatty deposits
- Reduced mental sharpness
- Low energy, fatigue
Balancing hormones eases these disruptive symptoms. It protects long-term health. Hormone imbalances raise the risk of heart disease, osteoporosis, diabetes, and certain cancers. By identifying deficiencies early and restoring balance through bioidentical hormone therapy, your well-being and vitality are on their way to recovery.
Who is Not a Candidate for BioTE Hormone Therapy?
While bioidentical hormone pellet therapy can provide tremendous relief for many, it may not be appropriate for every patient. Our team will review your health history, the severity of your symptoms, try other treatments first, and order bloodwork to analyze your hormone status.
These tests help determine whether hormone pellet therapy is safe and necessary for you.
People currently battling cancer or those who have survived cancer in the past five years should avoid hormone pellet therapy. The additional estrogen or testosterone might fuel the growth of malignancies. Also, those with liver disease or taking blood thinners may not be good candidates, as pellet insertion could increase bleeding risks.
Why Should You Choose a BioTE-Certified Provider?
It’s essential to work with a provider specifically trained and certified in the BioTE method. This ensures you get the full benefits of pellet treatment from a specialist with extensive knowledge. Here’s what sets BioTE-certified providers apart:
