About Hormone Therapy
Men and women who suffer from hormone imbalances may benefit from hormone replacement therapy at Hebe Medical Spa in Fishkill, NY. Our hormone therapy is bioidentical which means that the hormones used are matched to your body’s hormones and work successfully with the brain’s hormone receptors. Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy is preferred over synthetic hormones as it usually means safer, more efficient and effective results for the patient. Dr. Zainab Mogul-Ashraf, the medical director of Hebe Medical Spa meets with each patient during a consultation, to discuss medical history, run preliminary tests, and help determine if hormone therapy is a safe and recommended option for you.
Bioidentical hormones are carefully engineered to resemble the body's naturally produced hormones. Medical professionals believe that bioidentical hormones may be safer than synthetic hormones. Hormone replacement is typically effective in raising a man's testosterone or balancing a woman's hormones during perimenopause and menopause.
BioTE Hormone Pellet Therapy for Men – Our bioidentical hormone therapy pellets treat low testosterone in men. Low testosterone is the leading cause of decreased sex drive, hair loss, weight gain, fatigue, and erectile dysfunction. Patients report overall improvement to their mood, sex drive, and health during treatment.
BioTE Hormone Pellet Therapy for Women – Hormone imbalance is a common complication for many women during perimenopause and meneopause, but it can be treated. Hormonal imbalance can cause fatigue, anxiety, and hot flashes as well as decreased libido and depression.

Ideal candidates for hormone replacement therapy are men and women who are suffering from hormonal imbalance resulting from a lack of sufficient testosterone,
estridiol, and/or progesterone. Before pellet therapy is performed, our medical director Dr. Zainab Mogul-Ashraf will perform a medical evaluation to ascertain your current hormone levels and decide what dosage would sufficiently supplement your body. Our pellets are customized to meet the needs of each individual patient. This customization helps to ensure your unique symptoms are properly treated and you feel overall improvement.
Our hormone replacement pellets are small implants that are inserted into the lower hip/upper buttock area. The pellet insertion procedure is straightforward, fast, and simple. Performed in office and in only a few minutes, the insertion site will be numbed before we begin. Next, a very small incision is created at the treatment site. Finally the pellet is inserted just under the skin, and the site is covered with a small bandage. No sutures necessary.
Frequently Asked Questions
How hormone levels tested?
To determine your hormone levels before treatment, our team performs a comprehensive blood test designed to track the active and inactive hormones in your body. This testing is much more involved than your traditional primary care annual blood testing. Testing will continue throughout your treatment so that we can monitor your hormone levels and determine how to best continue your treatment.
What causes hormone imbalances?
Hormone imbalance is a standard part of the aging process. It happens to most individuals as they age and is nothing to be upset or embarrassed by. Hormonal imbalance can happen to men or women regardless of lifestyle or diet.
How are bioidentical hormones prepared?
After a detailed consultation and evaluation, our team will prescribe a unique combination of hormones to treat your symptoms and address your individual needs. The prescriptions are then filled by a bioidentical hormone compounding pharmacy, where your pellets will be custom-made to meet your unique hormone profile.
What are the long-term health benefits of hormone replacement therapy?
Effects of hormone replacement therapy are both short term and long term. Natural hormone therapy helps men and women reduce the risks of many of the diseases associated with aging, including cancer, heart disease, osteoporosis, stroke, and senility.
What to Expect
Immediately following the procedure, lower body exercise is not advised. You will be able to move about normally and may walk if you would like to, but vigorous exercise of any kind is not recommended until the site has healed and the bandage can be removed. We also recommend no swimming, hot tubs, or bathtubs. However, showers are permitted. The pellets will dissolve and become absorbed by your body, so removal is not necessary. You can return to all exercise routines as soon as the treatment site has healed.
