Bioidentical hormone pellets are derived from plants — just like other forms of BHRT — meaning they are naturally-based and structurally identical to the hormones produced by the human body.
Bioidentical hormone pellets are currently available for two types of hormone therapy: testosterone and estradiol. The pellet delivery system remains the only form of delivery that closely mirrors what the human ovary and testicle do. This method ensures the same steady, around-the-clock, low dosages the body once created.
Each pellet is 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 bio-identical hormones—much like the body does under normal function—over three to six months. The duration depends on how quickly the body metabolizes the pellet.
You won’t have to change patches, rub on creams, or remember to take a pill. And you won’t experience the radical surges and drops in blood levels. Pellet implants even deliver more when the body needs it—like during exercise or periods of stress.
How do you know if you have a hormonal imbalance that may be supported with BHRT? As you get older, passing through your 30’s and into your 40’s and 50’s, you may start to notice symptoms like (these are the symptoms that are found in both men and women):
Although often attributed to age, these are, in fact, signs that you may be having hormonal issues. Hormone imbalance can range from a natural dwindling of hormone levels as we get older, due to menopause or andropause, to an imbalance that requires medical attention.
Bioidentical hormone pellet therapy offers many of the same benefits as other BHRT delivery methods, but it has some distinct features that set it apart, including no-hassle dosing. The bio-identical pellet is inserted and goes to work – no need to remember to take a pill or swipe on a cream. And, since the body slowly metabolizes the pellet over time, patients don’t have to worry if they took too much or not enough; it minimizes fluctuations between treatments.
Bioidentical pellets are designed to work with each patient’s body chemistry, releasing a natural dose of hormones throughout the treatment cycle.
Testosterone therapy is available in pellet form. Testosterone pellet therapy offers advantages for men who prefer not to endure the pain sometimes associated with testosterone injections or worries of transference linked to creams. Pellet therapy offers men the numerous benefits of testosterone therapy, including improved libido and sexual performance, increased muscle mass, reduced fat mass, stabilized moods, enhanced focus, and drive, and lastly, lowered risk of certain diseases.
Estradiol and testosterone are often valuable treatment options for women suffering from menopausal symptoms. Women may choose bioidentical pellet therapy for testosterone replacement therapies and enjoy the natural-release benefits, including improved sex drive and sexual sensation, improved weight management, reduced fat mass, increased lean body mass, increased focus and ambition, stabilized moods, and improved bone density.
