Many women experience hormone imbalance. Symptoms, which range from subtle to debilitating, can include fatigue, anxiety, depression, insomnia, weight gain, acne, thinning hair, excessive hair on face and arms, thin/dry skin, brown spots on face, unstable blood sugar, painful or severe menstruation, low sex drive, and many others. Hormone imbalance can occur as part of the natural aging process, but can also be affected by food, exercise, and stress.
Many women have found success through bio-identical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT). Bio-identical hormones are made from plants that have naturally-occurring hormones that closely replicate human hormones.
Shoemaker Gynecology recommends the pellet form of bio-identical hormone replacement therapy for our patients because pellets best mimic the way the body naturally produces hormones. Our providers offer consultations to determine if bio-identical hormone replacement therapy may be right for you. A simple blood test must be drawn at your initial consultation appointment to determine your current hormone levels. The initial consultation and lab work is covered by most insurance plans.

Shoemaker Gynecology also offers nutraceuticals created specifically to supplement bioidentical hormone replacement therapy. Nutraceuticals are high-grade supplements containing quality ingredients that undergo 3rd party validation, and are produced by bioTe, the trusted company behind bioidentical hormone replacement therapy pellet.
