Optimized Hormone Levels Through Pellet Therapy

Hormone pellets are derived from plants, just like other forms of bioidentical hormone replacement therapies. This means they are naturally-based and structurally identical to the hormones produced by the human body. Pellets are currently available for testosterone and estradiol hormone therapy. Each pellet is quite small (about the size of a grain of rice) and is inserted into an incision made to the upper hip area during a simple, in-office procedure. Following insertion, the body slowly begins to metabolize the pellet, releasing a steady, natural dose of hormones (much like the body does under normal function) over the course of three to six months. Pellets duration depends on how quickly they are metabolized in the body.

Pellet Therapy benefits

Pellet therapy offers many of the same benefits as other bioidentical hormone replacement therapy delivery methods, but it has some distinct features that set it apart, including:

Convenient, no hassle dosing.

The pellet is inserted and goes to work, avoiding the need to remember to take a pill or apply cream. Since the pellet is slowly metabolized by the body over time, patients don’t have to worry if they took too much or not enough.

Minimizes fluctuations.

Pellets are designed to work with each patient’s body chemistry, releasing a natural dose of hormones throughout the treatment cycle.

Quick Procedure.

Local anesthetic is applied to the injection site, a tiny incision is made in the skin and the pellet is put into place by trained medical staff and sealed with a piece of medical tape. There is no need for stitches or to be concerned with scarring.

Pellet Therapy for Women

Women may choose pellet therapy for testosterone replacement therapy. Much like with men, women can enjoy the natural release formulation of the pellet. Estradiol and testosterone are often valuable treatment options for women suffering from menopausal symptoms. However, some women may pursue testosterone therapy to experience the following benefits:

  • Improved sex drive & sexual sensation
  • Increased lean body mass & reduced fat mass
  • Improved weight management
  • Improved bone density
  • Increased focus and ambition
  • Stabilized moods
