What Is Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy?
Having your hormones in balance improves many areas of your health. Your body relies on hormones to control growth, as well as support digestion, brain functions, sleep patterns, and sexual activity. When changes in your body occur, some symptoms can interrupt your way of living and dramatically impact your life. To address these issues, our team at Dr. Caroline Conner offers bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) using customized pellets that mimic your body's natural hormones. When the pellets are implanted under the skin, a steady dose of hormones is delivered to improve symptoms like fatigue, headaches, depression, and low libido. If you'd like to learn more, please reach out to our Fountain Valley, CA office and schedule a consultation with Dr. Caroline Conner.

Hormone Replacement Therapy Reviews
I’ve been to my fair share of BioTe physicians for HRT since 2014. I’m so glad I cross paths with Dr. Conner because she goes above and beyond the service other physicians I’ve had. She is extremely knowledgeable in HRT and takes in consideration the patients symptoms not just the tests. In my HRT journey I have met more Dr’s that don’t know what they are doing than do and Dr. Conner is a breath of fresh air. Her staff is professional and amazing. Mercedes (her assistant) took care of all my needs and made sure to follow up with me so I know what the next step always was. I will definitely be referring Dr. Conner’s HRT treatments to all my friends and look forward to my next office visit!
