Learn from Dr. Lisa Masterson about Hormone Pellet Therapy.
Great news- BioTE is Bioidentical and manufactured by a FDA-registered pharmacy! Hormone therapy for women has been a common practice to cope with aging for decades. Female hormone replacement therapy (HRT) may help women who are suffering from unbalanced hormones. Bioidentical hormones delivered through BHRT pellets closely replicate the molecular structure of human hormones. When it comes to bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) pellets, the BioTE® method of pellet therapy is the preferred choice among physicians. When a patient decides to start the BioTE method of pellet therapy, they may receive as few as two subcutaneous pellet insertions per year—and any needed hormone will be readily available when the body requires it. The BHRT pellets that certified BioTE providers use may allow for the natural administration of the necessary hormones.
Using the BioTE subcutaneous pellet approach to bioidentical hormone replacement therapy, some patients report feeling symptom relief in as little as four weeks, but complete symptom relief may take up to six months.
Female hormone replacement therapy, or HRT, can take the form of patches, creams, pills, rings, or pellets. BioTE’s method of hormone therapy provides a consistent release of hormones. When hormones are out of balance, hormone replacement therapy for women may help relieve a wide array of different symptoms, both physical and emotional. Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy for women aims to relieve the source of the problem, not just the symptoms themselves.
The BioTE Difference?
Bioidentical subcutaneous pellets from BioTE approved outsourcing facilities must be compounded according to specific manufacturing processes that adhere to stringent quality control standards. BioTE medical requires pellets to be manufactured to potency standards stricter than the industry standards of +/- 10%.
BioTE works only with FDA-registered 503B Human Drug Compounding Outsourcing Facilities that conduct adequate regulatory oversight and consistent BHRT compounding volume. These 503B Outsourcing Facilities are held to stricter standards than a typical 503A Compounding Pharmacy and must also satisfy BioTE's clinical, quality, and service requirements, which include:
BioTE’s approved outsourcing facilities are required to comply with Current Good Manufacturing Practices (CGMPs) relating to sterility, endotoxin testing, environmental monitoring, quality assurance checks, and more, helping to ensure that BioTE providers receive the highest-quality compounded hormones available.

Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy for women may help any woman whose hormones are out of balance. However, the most common time women seek bioidentical hormone replacement therapy is when they're experiencing menopause. There are three stages of menopause—perimenopause, menopause, and postmenopause. There are also rare instances regarding women who have never had balanced hormones, often causing excessively uncomfortable menstrual cycles and extreme mood swings. The BioTE method of bioidentical hormone replacement therapy for women may help treat the cause of these issues.
The first step is to meet with Dr. Ojo-Carons in a consultation. She will listen to you, hear all of your concerns, and then work closely with you to come up with the best solution for your needs. She will let you be in control of the entire process and offer her expert advice along the way. During this visit, you will have laboratory work ordered to have your hormone levels tested. For patients that choose BioTE Hormone Pellet Therapy, we typically recommend treatments spaced 3-4 months apart.
Following your initial consultation, you will be scheduled for your BioTE Hormone Pellet insertion. Please allow about 30 to 45 minutes for your treatment. This includes time for pre-treatment paperwork; application of the numbing spray and local anesthetic to the placement area (generally around buttock area); the procedure, which takes a few minutes; and discharge instructions.
After the procedure has concluded, you should be able to return to your regular activities. It is recommended that you avoid strenuous activity that increases use of muscles around insertion site for 3 days. In addition, depending on your customized treatment, we may recommend further restrictions in your specific post-treatment plan.
