Dr. Christi is a certified hormone specialist by the Hormone Therapy Center of America (HTCA) trained to help women experiencing symptoms of hormone imbalance. Women generally experience very distinct symptoms of hormone imbalance. Most of these symptoms can be emotional, non-reproductive and/or reproductive and can negatively affect your personal life, professional life, self-confidence, self-image and your intimate relationships. Estrogen, progesterone and testosterone are the main hormones affected by menopause, pre-menopause, perimenopause and post-menopause. Many of the symptoms caused by hormone imbalance can feel like an emotional rollercoaster. Are you ready to get off? ChristiMD Medical Group can help you take back control of your life with hormone therapy replacement using BHRT.
Menopause can be associated with decreased ovarian function which results in reduced levels of ovarian hormones. Most women experience a 30-60% drop in estrogen during menopause. This decline can lead to hot flashes, night sweats and rapid heart rates. A decrease in testosterone can lead to mood swings, depression and decreased sex drive. Pre-menopause, perimenopause and post menopause can all lead to fluctuations of hormones, which can cause many of the symptoms listed above. If hormone deficiencies are left untreated, they can lead to increased chances of heart disease, Alzheimer’s disease, breast cancer and diabetes.
Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) is an effective treatment for hormone imbalance. These hormones are identical to the natural hormones produced in your body.
The HTCA Pellet Therapy uses small, cylinder-shaped bioidentical hormone pellets to correct the hormone imbalances in your body. Studies have shown these bioidentical hormones have fewer and decreased side effects than synthetic hormones, like those derived from horse urine (Premarin). The BHRT pellets are also completely customized to meet your needs. Dr. Christi’s team will perform tests to ensure you receive the correct dosage.
The implantation of BHRT pellets is a simple and relatively pain-free procedure. Your skin will be numbed with local anesthesia, and the pellets will be inserted through a small incision by Dr. Christi.
If you believe you are experiencing menopause or approaching menopause, ChristiMD Medical Group can evaluate your symptoms with blood samples. Every woman experiences menopause, pre-menopause, perimenopause and post-menopause differently, so it is important to take note of your symptoms to discuss with our team. We will determine if you are a suitable candidate for BHRT.
