The hormone is one of the most important chemicals in your body, and it has a role in almost every part of your life. As you age, the levels of hormones drop, resulting in slowing down all of the processes in your body. Hormone therapy such as hormone pellets can provide the treatment you need to stay young and healthy.

1. What Are Hormone Pellets?
Hormone pellets therapy is injecting a certain number of pellets the size of a grain of rice into the fatty tissue beneath your skin. These tiny pellets contain hormones that closely resemble the hormones already present in your body.
Using hormones derived from natural plants, Hormone Pellet Therapy mimics the body’s natural hormone levels. Subcutaneous implants that deliver small amounts of hormone into the body on a regular basis help keep hormone levels in check.
So, whether you are physically active, under stress, or engage in other activities that elevate your heart rate, your body will produce hormones, just as it would normally if your hormones were in balance.

2. How Long Does It Take for Hormone Pellets to Work?
During hormone pellet therapy, the pellets are progressively absorbed by the skin, and the necessary hormones enter the body. Patients generally report some improvement in their symptoms after two or three weeks, with the effects getting stronger with time. The full effects of therapy may not be apparent for eight weeks.
While your therapy is ongoing, we will closely evaluate your progress and make any required modifications to the hormone dosage. Following that, fresh pellets may be added every few months.
3. What Is the Dosage of Hormone Pellets?
The recommended dose for androgens varies based on the patient’s age, illness, and personal condition. The dosage is modified based on the patient’s response and the emergence of adverse effects. The testosterone pellets dose for replacement treatment in androgen-deficient guys is 150mg to 450mg subcutaneously every 3 to 6 months.
Several dosage regimens have been used to promote pubertal changes in hypogonadal males; some experts recommended smaller dosages at first, gradually increasing the dose as puberty progressed, with or without a reduction in maintenance levels.
Additionally, both the chronological and skeletal ages must be considered when establishing the starting dose and increasing the amount.
