Female hormone replacement therapy (HRT) can help women whose hormones are out of balance. Women most commonly seek HRT when they’re experiencing menopause. At the time of menopause, it will change hormone levels and create difficult symptoms in the long run. It’s a common way to cope with aging in women and assist those who are suffering from an unbalance in their hormones. If you’re looking for reliable HRT services in El Paso, then El Paso Family & Pediatric can help as an authorized BioTE® Medical provider.

BioTE®: What is Hormone Replacement Therapy?

Hormone replacement therapy can relieve both physical and emotional symptoms. From patches and creams to pellets and pills, there are myriad hormone release options for anyone who is in need of treatment. These forms of release will provide a consistent flow of hormones. Selecting our treatment plan with Bioidentical HRT (BHRT) will aim to relieve the source of the problem and not only the symptoms. 

EP Family & Pediatric Clinic is authorized to work with BioTE® Medical, which is a hormone optimization and medical training company. The BioTE® method of pellet therapy involves BHRT pellets which contain bioidentical testosterone or estrogen. 

Pellet therapy will include as few as two annual subcutaneous pellet insertions. If there are any necessary hormones, the body will have them readily available through the pellet distribution. BioTE® Medical partners with medical providers to create a healthier way to approach BHRT and superior nutraceuticals.
