The hot flashes were coming hard and fast. My husband, who’s suffered through each one with me, jokingly said that he could set his watch by me, because I was having a hot flash every hour on the hour! He felt so bad for me. He said if he had to go through that, with the hot flashes and night sweats, he’d lose his mind.
Well, it kinda felt like I was losing my mind. I couldn’t remember things, I was touchy, distracted, couldn’t sleep well. And those were the things I recognized. There were other symptoms of menopause that I didn’t even realize were happening, or I just thought they were normal.
That’s until I came to SottoPelle! My first appointment with Steve was on January 2nd. On January 5th, I realized I wasn’t having hot flashes, and I’d slept through the night with NO night sweats!!!
Hallelujah!!! I’ve got a normal, wonderful life again!! The extra pounds I was carrying around came off and my increased energy levels help me be better for my husband, my puppy and of course my job. And now that my husband sees the energy and positive attitude I have, he’s coming to see you too. Just to keep up with me!!
Thank you, SottoPelle!!

Whether you’re a man or a woman, talking with your significant other about their health and hormones with a physician is almost always fodder for an argument. The good news is, “It Doesn’t Have To Be That Way®” if the topic is approached with love, compassion, support and understanding. There are ways you can minimize the chance of upsetting the other person’s feelings if you do a little homework first.
If you’re a man, understand that your wife’s mood swings aren’t always caused by a bad day at work or the stress of dealing with the children or the never-ending list of chores at home. Chances are these everyday stressors can be amplified as a result of hormonal imbalance, premenopausal or menopausal. When a women is in menopause her body significantly decreases its production of estrogen and testosterone. In addition to mood swings, your wife may be experiencing fatigue or loss of libido. Other symptoms can include night sweats, hot flashes, unexplained weight gain and irritability. She may not realize she is suffering from hormonal imbalance and may have a hard time asking for help even if she suspects she might be “going through the change.”
Don’t let her be a stoic and suffer in silence. When you feel an openness in her presence, start by telling her she is greatly loved and valued. That you are bringing up a possibly sensitive topic only out of concern for her health. Reassure her that though her symptoms might have affected your relationship, that you are committed in helping her find answers so she can start feeling better, both physically and emotionally. Offer to read the same material with her, if possible, attend her doctor’s appointments with her, let her know you want to understand her condition, but most importantly, show her your support is consistent and constant.
If you are a woman wanting to talk to your male partner about “the change” you suspect is taking place in him, this topic is equally sensitive. We often hear of stories of men going through “mid-life crisis” when they buy the new sports car, start looking at much younger women and often chase things which help them feel more youthful. Some experts believe this phenomenon may actually be caused by a man trying to over-compensate the very qualities the he believes is slipping away from him: his sex appeal and masculinity. When a man reaches their late 30’s to mid-40s, the male body starts to significantly produce less testosterone which causes the man to have decreased libido and energy, loss of mental focus, decreased muscle mass, increased weight gain and an overall compromise in their sense of well-being. For a man, these symptoms also often cause depression. This “change” is often called “male menopause” or now known as “Andropause.”
When a woman addresses a man’s possible hormonal imbalance, the same concepts in positive communication applies regardless of whom is addressing whom. The woman must reassure the man that he is valued and loved and that this sensitive topic is being brought up out of concern for their health and well-being. Let your partner know that you don’t see him less of a man because his body is going through changes that are not in his control. Reassure him that the changes he is going through are common among men and the clinical term is called “andropause.” Read about the topic together and talk about “next steps” in getting him the medical help he needs.
The bottom line is neither the man nor the woman needs to suffer and feel they have debilitating bodies. Your relationship does not have to suffer because of the distance or walls often built between partners due to misunderstandings as a result of hormonal imbalance and mood swings that often follow. Intimacy in the relationship is possible, again. As well as the renewed sense of hope in a healthy, long future together not hindered by any physical, emotional or mental barricades often produced by hormonal imbalance. Your passion for life and each other will only grow with each passing year. But it all starts with today.
When you know something is not quite right with the person you love, it’s only natural you want to help them. Words have the power to build-up a person or to tear them down. Let’s help build the other person up in letting them know there is hope. For the past 20 years SottoPelle has provided thousands of men and women the ability to feel like their selves again. Let us help you and your loved one rebuild the road to happiness and good health.

We all know a lot of situations when one size doesn’t fit all: shoes, clothing, the dating scene, and coffee of course! (Either you take it black, or you don’t….2 pinks and a blue, 1 sugar, not 2…you get the idea.)
Hormone replacement is the same way. One size….does not fit all! And SottoPelle® patients are living proof that individualized dosing leads to happier more satisfied patients!
Here is something to ponder: should a 47-year-old, 5 foot 4 inch, female spin instructor take the same dose of hormones as a 47-year-old 5 foot 4 inch female attorney who works in a courtroom all day?
Short answer: No.
Slightly longer answer: You simply can’t assume that because these two women are the same age and height that their hormone levels (or hormonal deficiencies) are the same. One of the main differences with our proprietary SottoPelle® method for HRT is that we take into account many factors when determining an individualized dosing plan to best treat a patient’s individual needs.
That’s because, at SottoPelle®, we understand that people’s bodies work differently. Additionally, we all live, work, play, sleep and enjoy life differently— thus our providers customize dosing based on actual science and over 20 years of proprietary data which shows: People need individualized dosing to get optimal results.
The Science of BHRT — Simplified with SottoPelle®
For both men and women, the way we produce hormones is a complex biological process affecting just about every system in our body, from reproduction to metabolism, brain function to mood. Drops in hormone levels can really change the way we feel and impact our health. The drop in estrogen that comes from menopause may raise a woman’s risk for heart problems and could lower her bone density, putting her at risk for osteopenia and osteoporosis. Low testosterone in men or women can lead to sexual dysfunction, mood issues and lack of concentration, as well as other potentially serious issues.
In fact, there are lists and lists of symptoms that can be linked to hormone imbalance. And since everyone’s body chemistry and symptoms are different, a boilerplate approach to HRT just doesn’t cut it. You deserve better.
Traditional or synthetic hormone replacement in the form of creams, patches, and pills is in many ways, an attempt to put people in a box, with prescriptions written based on predetermined dosages. That can be a huge limitation when it comes to the way you feel while on HRT, as well as your health and overall well being.
At SottoPelle®, bio identical hormone replacement therapy using subcutaneous hormone pellets is different. It’s a scientifically based methodology, using pellet therapy. Each patient’s hormone levels are first thoroughly tested so we can see exactly what your hormone levels are and what your body is lacking, that’s the only way we can know how to best go about treating your deficiencies.
Each patient’s dosing is specifically designed around each patient’s needs and lifestyle. It is truly customized to your individual needs.
That’s like getting the “low fat double tall mocha latte” you ordered, instead of someone else’s, cup of black coffee!
Wondering how pellets work? Here’s the scoop.
After hormone levels are tested and reviewed by one of our trained providers an individualized dosing plan is created, and tiny pellets are implanted, painlessly under the skin. Over the course of several months and based on your bodies needs, these pellets slowly dissolve, delivering hormones in the most physiological way possible, in an effort to mimic the way our bodies once did. This delivery method offers the added benefit of keeping hormone levels stable, avoiding the yo-yo effect that can occur with pills, patches or creams.
Have you heard about bio identical hormone replacement with pellet therapy? Maybe you’ve heard things, but you’re not sure what to believe. Here are the basics about BHRT…
Bio identical hormone replacement is an effective treatment for many symptoms associated with menopause and andropause (male menopause).
When hormone levels in our blood drop, many unpleasant side effects can occur, such as hot flashes, night sweats, loss of libido, depression, anxiety, loss of muscle mass and more. It can also affect the health of our cardiovascular system, bones, and skin. Bringing hormone levels up via BHRT can make you feel better and stay healthier as you age.
Just ask SottoPelle® patients, and they will tell you…Pellet therapy is the best delivery method for hormone replacement.
Some doctors prescribe synthetic hormones via pills, creams or patches. Not only are these hormones biologically different from the ones our body naturally produces, their delivery method can cause hormone levels to fluctuate greatly, creating the yo-yo effect, commonly referred to as the “hormone roller coaster”. With bio identical HRT using pellet therapy, the hormones that are used are biologically identical to the ones the human body produces, so they are metabolized in the same fashion. The body absorbs hormone pellets slowly over a period of months, delivering a consistent, physiologic dose of hormone. No yo-yos or roller coasters to be found.
Bio identical hormone replacement is safe.
For many women who experience moderate to severe symptoms of menopause, doctors and healthcare professionals agree that hormone replacement therapy using bio identical hormones is a safe and effective way to address many of these symptoms (including hot flashes, trouble sleeping, irritability, low libido, lack of energy and brain fog…just to name a few).
Considering HRT…You’ve come to the right place!
We all want to live our best lives possible, and maintaining our overall health as we age often depends on many different factors including our lifestyle, activity level and genetics. What many don’t know is that declining hormone levels can also have an impact on overall health, thus having an understanding of what your levels are is paramount. At SottoPelle®, we recognize an important fact that others often miss— one size truly does not fit all. Our patients have specific lab work performed allowing our providers to identify hormone imbalances that are present. Based on these lab results, our providers are then able to prescribe individualized dosing to address the specific needs of each patient.
