Hormone Replacement Therapy in grand rapids, mi

Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy is a hormone balancing, anti-aging treatment that uses bioidentical hormones to treat and resolve hormonal imbalances in men and women. While many patients who seek out this treatment are men amid andropause or women walking through menopause, younger and middle-aged adults can also suffer from hormonal imbalances due to lifestyle choices, side effects of certain medications, hormonal changes, genetics, and illnesses.

Whatever the cause of your imbalance, our experts can evaluate your symptoms and perform a comprehensive blood panel to learn more bout your hormone levels so that we can move forward with a treatment plan that will bring your body and your life back into balance. You don’t have to live with the symptoms of a hormone deficiency; you just need to recognize that they aren’t normal and take steps to restore your balance to your body with bioidentical hormones.


There are different BHRT treatment methods that can balance hormones, but we prefer the most popular treatment method, that being pellet therapy. The hormones found within the pellets are derived from plants, providing a more natural alternative to hormone therapy.

Hormone pellets prevent the ups and downs that often accompany other methods and deliver a steady, continuous stream of hormones to your body exactly when needed.


One of the primary roles of the male and female hormones is regulating sex hormones. Low libido is one of the most common signs of a hormone deficiency in men and women, but this treatment can change that. As hormone levels drop with the aging process, men and women find that their libido drops, and they may experience different forms of sexual dysfunction.

This treatment promotes sexual wellness in both men and women and treats related symptoms, including lack of sex drive, erectile dysfunction, difficulty achieving and maintaining an erection, pain during intercourse, and vaginal dryness, among others. Patients who undergo this treatment process notice that BHRT promotes increased sexual wellness, which improves their personal relationships and quality of life.

At our office, we rely on BHRT pellet therapy to treat hormonal imbalances in men and women to alleviate their symptoms and promote overall health and wellness. A tiny pellet with a customized dosage of the hormones your body needs to achieve balance will be administered into the fatty tissue on your buttocks during the treatment process. Contact us at Proper Eu Medical & Aesthetics Center today to schedule your consultation.

One of our medical experts will numb the area and then create a small incision to insert the pellet so that it can be absorbed by the bloodstream and used to create hormonal balance and stability. At each follow-up treatment, the pellet will be inserted on the opposite side of the buttocks.


You can resume most of your daily activities once your pellet insertion appointment is over. The entire process takes less than 20 minutes, and then you’ll be free to go about your day. We advise patients to temporarily avoid lower body workouts after treatment to ensure that the incision can heal and the pellet can remain intact. We also advise that you avoid baths, swimming, or anything that would soak the area for the first several days.


After your initial treatment, we’ll schedule follow-up appointments to perform bloodwork to ensure that your hormone pellet is giving you an adequate amount of hormones. Then, we can make any adjustments necessary to ensure that you maintain balanced hormones long-term. If at any point you have questions or concerns about the process, our experts can discuss them with you and answer any questions you may have.


Men who undergo this treatment process can expect the pellets to last approximately five to six months, after which a follow-up treatment will be necessary to maintain balanced hormones long-term. Women who undergo this treatment process can expect their hormone pellets to last two to three months before requiring a follow-up treatment.


BHRT provides men and women with a simple, safe, natural, and effective way to reverse a hormonal imbalance and combat the signs of aging. You don’t have to let the aging process define your life or how you feel on a daily basis, nor do you have to live with imbalanced hormones. Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy with hormone pellets can alleviate your symptoms, promote sexual wellness, and help you experience an improved quality of life.
