Why BioTE is Popular Among Menopausal Women


Even if you believe you’re prepared for menopause, chances are you’ll encounter some unexpected surprises. For some women, the surprises are pleasant as they experience few hot flashes or other symptoms. For others, the surprise of menopause is that their severe symptoms last for years after their periods stop.

Then there are the changes few women expect. Here at Gynecologic Surgery and Menopause Solutions, we help many women who develop problems like painful intercourse due to menopause. Many of them are thrilled to find relief with BioTE® bioidentical hormone replacement therapy.

Health challenges of menopause

Menopause leads to changes that extend way beyond the end of your menstrual periods. Estrogen helps regulate many functions throughout your body, so when your ovaries stop producing estrogen, you can develop a wide range of health challenges in addition to the expected hot flashes and night sweats.


These additional health concerns are also different from the typical menopause symptoms of hot flashes, night sweats, and mood swings. When the classic symptoms eventually go away, the other body-wide problems persist.

These are just a few of the ways low estrogen affects your body:


Estrogen affects levels of brain chemicals involved in cognition and memory. This is why menopause often causes brain fog or memory loss.


Estrogen has an active role in bone metabolism, where it promotes bone growth. After menopause, the loss of estrogen leads to rapid bone loss and a significantly higher chance of developing osteoporosis.


Estrogen stimulates the production of substances that maintain youthful skin. Without estrogen, your skin ages more rapidly, becoming thin, dry, and less elastic.

Vagina and urinary tract

You need estrogen to maintain the health of tissues lining your vagina and urinary tract. The changes that occur at menopause make women more likely to develop urinary incontinence and a condition called vaginal atrophy.

Vaginal atrophy basics

About half of all women develop vaginal atrophy after menopause. When your levels of estrogen drop, the tissues lining your vagina become thin, dry, and less elastic. Blood supply to your vaginal tissues also diminishes.

As a result, vaginal tissues become fragile, and you experience vaginal dryness and painful intercourse. Many women also develop vaginal burning and itching and even bleeding after intercourse.

Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy restores your health.

One of the most effective ways to deal with menopausal changes is with hormone replacement therapy (HRT). HRT restores levels of estrogen back to normal, which, in turn, reverses all your existing symptoms and prevents future problems like osteoporosis.

At Gynecologic Surgery and Menopause Solutions, Dr. Garcini recommends bioidentical HRT. Bioidentical hormones have the same molecular structure as the hormones your body naturally produces, which means they produce optimal results by perfectly mimicking the same actions as your natural hormones.

Benefits of BioTE hormone replacement therapy

Dr. Garcini prescribes only the safest and most effective type of bioidentical HRT, which is why we use BioTE. Although safety is a priority, that isn’t the only reason BioTE is incredibly popular among menopausal women. BioTE HRT also offers several other advantages, starting with the fact that it’s natural because it’s made entirely from plant sources.

Another reason menopausal women prefer BioTE is because it’s delivered in pellet form, which is the healthiest way to receive hormone replacement therapy.

BioTE pellets are made by pressing your individualized dose of hormones into a cylinder that’s roughly the size of a grain of rice. We insert the pellet under the skin or your hip, where it:

Delivers a constant dose of hormones

BioTE pellets release a steady stream of hormones, avoiding the fluctuating doses that occur with oral tablets, shots, and creams. This stable dose does a better job of maintaining your hormone levels, which keeps you healthy.

Provides long-lasting treatment

Each BioTE pellet lasts three to six months, so you’ll only need a new pellet inserted several times yearly to maintain optimal hormone levels.
