Hormone Therapy Q & A

What are the signs of hormone depletion in women?

Low hormone levels have a number of negative effects, including:

  • Mood swings
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Hot flashes
  • Headaches or migraines
  • Decreased libido
  • Vaginal dryness
  • Weight gain
  • Insomnia
  • Difficulty concentrating

If you have hormone depletion, you may have several or even all of these symptoms at once.

What are the signs of hormone depletion in men?

Low hormone levels can be just as bad for men as they are for women. Effects of low hormone levels can include:

  • Decreased libido
  • Difficulty in achieving and maintaining an erection
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Mood swings
  • Weight gain
  • Hair loss
  • Chronic fatigue
  • Insomnia
  • Inability to concentrate

If you're dealing with low hormone levels, it's common to have several or even many of these effects at once.

What's the best treatment for hormone deficiencies?

The artificial hormones taken by many patients today are chemically based and are created in a laboratory. These hormones are so highly processed that they can bear little resemblance to true natural hormones.

Dr. Andrew, on the other hand, prescribes bioidentical hormone replacement therapy. He uses SottoPelleĀ® hormone therapy, which gives you high-quality pure hormones in the exact amounts you need. Dr. Andrew customizes your hormone replacement therapy based on your specific needs.

How does SottoPelle hormone therapy work?

Dr. Andrew administers SottoPelle hormones through an injection. The tiny pellet implants have low dose hormones that release gradually when you need them. When you're having symptoms of hormone depletion, the pellets release hormones to relieve symptoms and bring you back into balance.

This is very similar to how the ovaries and testicles release hormones naturally, making it the closest possible therapy to your body's own hormones.

How often do I need hormone therapy?

The SottoPelle hormone replacement pellets dispense hormones as needed for 3-6 months. If you have serious hormone depletion, your body will process the hormones more quickly, in which case you will need another treatment sooner than six months.

If your hormone depletion is mild to moderate, you may have a full six months of hormone replacement from just one treatment. The hormone replacement injections take just a few minutes. The maximum number of times you will need a treatment is four times a year.
