Hormonal imbalances affect every area of your life. When your hormones are off, your entire being suffers. Mentally, you may feel foggy. Physically, you may lack the energy you need. Emotionally, you may feel like you’re on a roller coaster. At Advanced Medical RX, located in Glen Carbon, IL and Creve Coeur, MO, we offer Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy, also known as BHRT, which can help balance your hormones so that you can feel balanced in every area of your life.
Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy
Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy comes in many shapes and forms, but at Advanced Medical RX, we proudly offer Pellecome, which are high-quality hormone pellets that are identical versions of what the body produces naturally. With the aging process comes significant changes in the hormones.
We want to help you age as gracefully as possible, and BHRT can help you do just that. With this treatment, you can thrive no matter what your age.
What Is BHRT?
This hormone treatment uses plant-based hormones that are identical matches to the hormones that are produced by the body. Instead of using creams, injections, or oral tablets, Pellecome uses pellets that are inserted into the body for optimal hormone balancing.
These pellets release consistent levels of hormones over time and do not cause the same type of hormonal fluctuations that are often associated with other forms of hormonal therapy.
How Does It Work?
Pellecome pellets are inserted into the body to help regulate hormones. The treatment area will be numbed, and then a scalpel will be used to make a small incision into the skin so that the pellets can be inserted just below the surface of the skin. Once inserted, the pellets deliver hormones in low dosages that mirror that which the body does.
What Does It Treat?
Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy treats hormone imbalances in both men and women. Whether you’re a man who genetically has low testosterone or your testosterone has decreased as a result of the aging process, we can help. If you’re a woman who has experience hormonal imbalance as a result of menopause, or even pre-menopause, we can bring back vitality and energy to your life with this therapy.
What Are the Signs of Hormonal Imbalance?
A tell-tale sign that you may be experiencing a hormonal imbalance is that you just don’t feel like yourself anymore. Something doesn’t feel right, but you just can’t put your finger on what it is.
The hormonal system is extremely delicate. When something is off, it can affect every other bodily system. You may have certain symptoms that are directly related to your hormones, but you would never guess it on your own because to you, it may seem completely unrelated.
Hormonal Imbalances in Women
Women usually experience hormonal imbalances during perimenopause and menopause. Perimenopause isn’t as well-known as menopause, but it is a real thing. It is the period of time that precedes menopause and can cause some life-altering hormonal changes. The most typical signs of hormonal imbalances in women include but are not limited to:
- Brain fog
- Inability to remember people’s names
- Memory changes

- Night sweats

Hormonal Imbalances in Men
Men experience hormonal imbalances just as frequently as women do. Young men can be genetically predisposed to suffer from hormone imbalances in the same way that middle-aged men experience hormonal imbalances. Whatever the case and whatever your age, the signs are very telling when it comes to a hormone imbalance. Typical signs of a hormonal imbalance in men include but are not limited to:
