Biote® Q & A

What are Biote bioidentical hormones? 

Biote bioidentical hormones are derived from natural plant sources. They’re structurally identical to the hormones produced in a woman’s body. Biote takes derivatives of soy and yams to create bioidentical estrogens, such as estriol, estrone, and 17 beta-estradiol. This contrasts with traditional hormone therapy, which often uses synthetic hormones.

Biote hormones are personalized to match your unique hormonal needs, promoting balance and easing symptoms associated with hormonal fluctuations.

Why would I need Biote bioidentical hormones?

Biote can be necessary when hormonal imbalances occur, causing various disruptive symptoms. These imbalances often arise during transitional phases like menopause, perimenopause, and even during some medical conditions.

Symptoms that suggest you have a hormone imbalance include:

  • Hot flashes and night sweats
  • Mood swings
  • Persistent fatigue
  • Brain fog
  • Irregular menstrual cycles
  • Vaginal dryness and uncomfortable intercourse
  • Reduced libido
  • Sleep disruptions

If you have these symptoms, seek a consultation at Artemis Midwives. Bioidentical hormones are designed to restore hormonal balance and ease the symptoms associated with hormonal fluctuations.

What are the benefits of using Biote bioidentical hormones?

Choosing Biote bioidentical hormones offers several benefits, including the following:

  • Hormonal balance
  • Fewer side effects than with synthetic hormones
  • Enhanced quality of life and mood

Biote bioidentical hormones are personalized to you. Edine and Chidera administer only the hormones you need to balance your system.

Am I a candidate for Biote?

You might consider bioidentical hormone therapy if you experience disruptive symptoms of hormonal imbalances. If you're going through menopause, perimenopause, or have a medical condition that affects your hormones, discussing your options with Artemis Midwives experienced team can help you make an informed decision.

Before administering the hormones, the midwives consider your health and medical history to determine if Biote is right for you.

How do you administer Biote bioidentical hormones?

Your midwife delivers Biote as small pellets injected just beneath the skin. The pellets release a consistent and controlled amount of hormones into the body, eliminating the need for daily dosing.
