Hormone Pellet Therapy
Hormone Pellet Therapy
Bio-identical Hormone Pellet Therapy is the most natural way to deliver hormones to both women and men. A pellet is placed under the skin, that will consistently release small doses of bio-identical hormones over several months, providing optimal therapy.
- Increase in strength
- Regain energy and improve mental clarity
- Increases in bone density and muscle mass
- Improves performance and sexual health
Bio-identical Hormone Pellets are made up of either estradiol or testosterone. The hormones, estradiol or testosterone, are pressed or fused into very small solid cylinders. These pellets are larger than a grain of rice and smaller than a ‘Tic Tac’. In the United States, pellets are made by a licensed compounding pharmacist and delivered in sterile glass vials.
Your provider will diagnose the best levels of hormones to be administered. Lab work is evaluated before therapy is started. The insertion of pellets is a simple and a relatively painless procedure. The incision area is numbed with local anesthetic before the procedure to insert the pellet. The pellets are usually inserted in the lower back or buttocks region through a small incision, then the area is taped closed. The pellets do not need to be removed. They completely dissolve on their own.
After pellets are inserted, patients may notice that they have more energy, sleep better and feel happier. Muscle mass and bone density will increase while fatty tissue decreases. Patients may notice increased strength, co-ordination and physical performance. They may also see an improvement in skin tone and hair texture. Concentration and memory may improve as will overall physical and sexual health.
For decades, physicians have been prescribing Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) for those who have experienced problems or have other concerns about the use of synthetic hormones.
Bio-identical Hormone Pellets have the same exact molecular structures as the hormones your body naturally makes.
Bio-identical Hormone Pellet Therapy is safe but there are some mild side effect associated after insertion. There may be mild, temporary breast tenderness when you first start hormone therapy; which will get better on its own. There may be temporary water weight gain which will also resolve on its own. Patients may experience a mild form of “puberty” as their hormonal levels come up into normal ranges.
