When is Hormone Therapy Needed?

By: Marina Roloff, DNP, FNP-C


Hormonal changes and imbalances occur in both men and women. Stress, childbirth, and aging can all cause a nosedive in your hormones. If you suffer from a hormonal imbalance, you might gain weight, suffer from anxiety, have trouble sleeping, feel irritable, experience hair loss and joint pain, and suffer from sexual dysfunction. Hormone pellet therapy, such as EvexiPEL, can help.

Board-certified nurse practitioner Marina Roloff at Enhance Aesthetics & Wellness in Yuma, AZ offers bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) with the EvexiPEL pellets, oral treatments, topical creams, injections, etc. She will give the treatment by inserting the pellet under the skin (usually in the buttocks), orally, or through creams. The treatments take approximately seven to ten days to start working. It may take up to two to four weeks to notice some symptom relief, and full optimization can take up to six months to help your body achieve more balance. It is a natural alternative to synthetic hormones. It can effectively treat and balance testosterone, progesterone, estrogen, thyroid hormones, and others. Our office inserts estrogen and testosterone while the remaining hormones, such as progesterone and thyroid, are typically given orally. Weeks following the treatment, patients start to feel more energetic, have greater focus, and enjoy an enhanced libido.

BHRT can help with hormonal imbalance

Benefits of bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) include:

  • Reduction in menopausal symptoms
  • Improved sleep
  • Greater energy
  • Balanced mood
  • Better cognitive clarity
  • Greater libido
  • Lower risk of developing some medical conditions

Is BHRT right for me?

BHRT is used frequently for individuals who have hormonal balance issues. If you are over the age of 50 and have started to notice that your energy level has plunged, your sex life is suffering, you have started to gain weight, or your mental focus is murky, you probably have a hormone problem. Younger women who have undergone a hysterectomy can also start to suffer from hormonal problems.

If you are suffering from a hormonal imbalance, then you might experience high cholesterol, insomnia, erectile dysfunction, nighttime perspiration, memory lapses, and thyroid disorders.

Do you feel like you are suffering from a hormonal imbalance? If so, you’ll want to have a consultation with Marina Roloff at Enhance Aesthetics & Wellness in Yuma, AZ. She will listen to your concerns and evaluate your medical history. Following a detailed examination that may include blood work and diagnostic tests, she will create a customized hormone replacement plan for your needs. Once she receives all your test results, she can start to determine the appropriate dosage to balance your hormones. BHRT can effectively start to balance your hormones after being implanted beneath the skin or ingested.

EvexiPEL pellets are one of the hormone treatments that our office offers! EvexiPEL pellets are plant-based and natural. Once the pellet has been placed, it will start to break down, and your body will start to naturally absorb the hormones into your body’s circulatory system. The pellets have been designed to respond to your body’s physical and emotional stress to release the hormones into your system when you need them.

What to expect from hormone replacement therapy

Hormone replacement is fully customizable and will impact everyone differently. Some patients experience acne, sweating, hair growth, and emotional swings as their body starts to adjust to the changing hormone levels. During your treatment, the team at Enhance Aesthetics & Wellness in Yuma, AZ stays in contact with you to monitor your progress. The hormonal treatment plan is adjustable when needed. Most patients will start to feel better within two to four weeks of starting the hormone pellet therapy.
