Hormone Pellet Therapy has been around since the late 1930’s most prominently in Europe, Australia, and more recently introduced in the US. It is has been viewed for decades as the finest, most natural way to deliver hormones into the body. By placing these pellets underneath the skin, the body is able to draw from them small, physiologic doses of the bio-identical hormone providing optimal therapy & wellness.
What are Pellets?
Bio-Identical Pellets are made by licensed compounding pharmacies and are crystallized forms of Estrogen & Testosterone that have been compressed into small cylinders that range between the size of a “Tic-Tac” and a grain of rice. Pellets are synthesized from either soybeans or yams and mimic the body’s natural producing sex hormone.
Why are Pellets optimal for hormone replacement?
There are various reasons why pellet therapy is the optimal choice for hormone replacement, most importantly because it is the only method of hormone delivery that is able to deliver consistent, healthy levels of hormones. Pellets allow you to avoid the fluctuations and the ups and downs that are seen with every other method of delivery, because the body is able to draw from the hormone when it is needed.
In studies, when compared to conventional or synthetic hormones, pellets have been shown to be superior for relief of menopausal symptoms, maintaining bone density, restoration of sleep patterns, and improvement in sex drive, libido, sexual performance and stamina. The best part is you do not have to hassle with taking a pill every day, rubbing cream on multiple times, or going in for injections weekly. Pellets have been known to last 3-4 months in women and 4-6 months in men and are the most convenient delivery form of hormones on the market.
How and where do you insert pellets?
The entire procedure is quick and relatively painless and lasts about 10 minutes. The insertion of the pellets are done under local anesthesia and inserted in the lower abdominal wall or more frequently on the hip right above your buttocks. The incision does not require stitches and all the physicians ask is for you to refrain from physical activity for a few days.
What are the potential complications from inserting pellets?
As with any procedure there can always be complications, however, there are few when it comes to Hormone Pellet Therapy. Complications from the pellet insertion include minor bleeding from incision site, bruising, infection, and possible extrusion of the pellet. Other than the bruising and a temporary skin discoloration, these other complications are extremely rare. You do however want to refrain from extended periods of moisture for 4-5 days after your procedure. (Bath, hot tubs, swimming) Antibiotics may be given to a patient if they are diabetic or recently had a joint replacement to ere on the side of caution.
What can you expect to feel after receiving pellets?
This is what it is all about! The results vary depending on the individual, but some patients say they can feel a difference within 24-48 hours, while others may take a week or two. Patients notice that they have more energy, sleep better, feel happier, and an overall gain in wellness. Muscle mass and bone density will increase while your fatty tissue decreases. Patients have noticed and increase in strength, cognitive function, sexual desire, and improved stamina. Your doctor will be sure to go over all of the wonderful benefits of bringing your hormone levels back down or up to a normal range.
Do the pellets need to be removed every 3-6 months?
There is no removal needed because the pellets are slowly dissolving into your blood stream as the hormones are needed. The physician will continually check your levels and when they start to decline again they know you are ready for another round and will schedule your appointment.
Does a woman have to be in menopause to benefit from pellets?
Absolutely not, and pellet therapy is not just for women who are pre-menopausal. Women at any age can experience hormone imbalance and need to have their levels checked. Levels can decline for various reasons and pellet therapy is able to combat symptoms of: post-postpartum depression, severe PMS, menstrual or migraine headaches, sleeping disorders, as well as hormone deficiencies cause by different types of birth control. If you are going through menopause pellet therapy has been known to combat the “Seven Dwarfs of Menopause” as famous author and Bio identical extraordinaire Suzanne Somers puts it. “You can say goodbye to Itchy, Bitchy, Sweaty, Sleepy, Bloated, Forgetful, and Psycho!”
