Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy

Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy

Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy services offered in Cooper City , FL

Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) is anti-aging medicine that gently restores hormone levels using plant-sourced ingredients that are structurally identical to your body’s hormones. At New Reflection Medspa & Wellness Center, holistic medicine specialist Roberto Fernandez-Blay, MD, offers Pro-Pell pellets, the most natural way to deliver the hormones you lack over a period of up to six months. To learn more about BHRT, call the Cooper City, Florida, office or use the online scheduling feature now. 

What is bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT)?

BHRT is hormone balancing for people with estrogen or testosterone deficiencies. All BHRT hormones come from plant sources and are virtually identical to the molecular structure of your body’s natural hormones. 

Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy comes in many forms, including creams, gels, injections, pills, and dissolvable pellets. New Reflection Medspa & Wellness Center uses Pro-Pell pellets, which are the ideal delivery method for bioidentical hormones because they send a consistent amount of hormones into your blood over time. 

Pellets allow you to avoid the hormone spikes that can come with other delivery methods. Those hormone spikes are why side effects are so common with other methods of BHRT. 

Additionally, pellets don’t raise the risk of blood clots or breast cancer (both possible issues with synthetic hormone replacement). Data demonstrates that having balanced hormones is actually breast-protective.  

Do I need bioidentical hormone replacement therapy?

Both women and men can experience a decrease in hormones as they age. About four in 10 men aged 54-64 have low testosterone, and all women experience a dramatic estrogen drop in their early-to-mid 50s (menopause).

Some of the many unpleasant issues that hormone depletion can cause include:

  • Low energy
  • Low libido
  • Weight gain
  • Mood swings
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Restless sleep
  • Hot flashes
  • Night sweats
  • Hair thinning
  • Skin thinning and wrinkling


If you’re experiencing any of these problems and want the most natural approach possible for symptom relief, bioidentical hormone replacement therapy could be right for you.

How does bioidentical hormone replacement therapy work?

Pro-Pell pellets are slightly larger than a grain of rice. The pellets go into a tiny incision in your hip area, residing in the fatty tissue there. The in-office procedure only takes around 15 minutes, and you can return home with no restrictions that day.  

After Pro-Pell pellet insertion, many people experience improvement in their symptoms in just 24-48 hours, but it could take one or two weeks to notice the positive changes. 

How long do bioidentical hormone replacement therapy pellets last?

On average, most patients experience symptom relief for three to six months after Pro-Pell pellet insertion. Two or three pellet insertion visits per year can help you look and feel like a younger you long-term.
