BioTe Q&A

What is Biote?

Biote is a popular brand of bioidentical hormones. These hormones are structurally similar to the hormones your body makes naturally but come from yams and other plant materials.

The Dekalb Women’s Specialists team uses Biote hormones as a part of their bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) plan to correct hormone imbalances in women. An imbalance in your hormone levels can cause a range of symptoms that interfere with your physical, emotional, and sexual health.

The team provides educational resources to help you understand the risks and benefits of Biote hormone therapy, so you can make the most informed decisions about your health.

Why would I need Biote hormone therapy?

You may be a candidate for the Biote hormone therapy available at Dekalb Women’s Specialists if you have symptoms of a hormone imbalance such as:

  • Irregular periods
  • Menstrual cramps
  • Fibrocystic breasts
  • Hot flashes
  • Night sweats
  • Mood swings
  • Low sex drive
  • Unexplained weight gain
  • Premenstrual syndrome (PMS)

Hormone fluctuations and imbalances are a common part of the transition to menopause, the time when your periods stop for good, which signals the end of your childbearing years.

You can also develop a hormone imbalance from chronic health conditions that affect your thyroid, the gland that produces hormones.

The providers offer on-site blood tests to evaluate your hormone levels. They also review your medical history and existing health to determine if Biote bioidentical hormones are a good fit for you. 

What can I expect during Biote hormone therapy?

Biote hormones are available in several forms, including:

  • Gels
  • Creams
  • Suppositories
  • Capsules
  • Lozenges
  • Sublingual troches

There is also a pellet form of Biote hormones available at Dekalb Women’s Specialists. Your provider inserts a tiny pellet just under the surface of your skin during a simple, in-office procedure.

The pellet is about the size of a grain of rice and delivers a steady stream of hormones into your body. The supplemental hormones rebalance your natural hormone levels to stabilize your mood, boost your metabolism, and regulate your periods.

The medical team can recommend the dosage and strength of Biote that you need based on the severity of your symptoms. It can take some time to find the optimal dosage to achieve lasting symptom relief.
