What is Hormone Pellet Therapy for Women?
Hormone Pellet Therapy for Women is a method of delivering a steady and sustainable level of bio identical hormones. Pellets, about the size of a grain of cooked rice, are typically inserted in the upper part of the buttocks just under the skin. This is done during a simple in-office procedure. Depending upon the patient, pellets typically last for three to six months before re-pelleting is required. The hormone pellets, which contain customized levels of estradiol or testosterone, are slowly metabolized. This slow, constant release of bio identical hormones is similar to the way that the body’s natural hormones are secreted, resulting in a more natural hormone replacement.
Hormone Pellet Therapy for Women Benefits
What are the many benefits of pellet therapy to women? Pellet therapy can alleviate many of the typical symptoms of hormone imbalance, such as:
- weight gain
- loss of muscle mass
- lack of sexual desire
- lack of energy
- poor sleep/insomnia
- night sweats
- mood swings
- lowered sense of well-being
There are many benefits to hormone pellets over more traditional hormone therapy, such as creams and pills. In studies that compare other methods of hormone replacement therapy, pellets have been shown to be superior in relieving symptoms of hormone imbalance. Patients who previously failed to get relief from other hormone therapies have a very high success rate with pellets.
Another benefit of pellet therapy is the use of bioidentical hormones. This means that the hormones in the pellets are structurally the same as the hormones that your body produces naturally. Additionally, these hormones are naturally sourced, as they are derived from plants. This suggests that the hormones used in hormone pellet therapy for women are more natural and may have fewer negative interactions within the body. Also, since the hormone pellets are within the body delivering a more natural steady flow of hormones, you do not get ups and downs of symptom relief associated with pills and creams. And finally, there is no other method of hormone replacement that is as convenient for the patient, as pellets last for months before treatment is again needed.
