What Is Pellet Hormone Replacement Therapy?
Pellet hormone replacement therapy is a therapeutic treatment method to help restore balance to shifting hormone levels. During the aging process, hormone levels shift and drop, causing changes to health and daily life that are often frustrating and difficult to diagnose. Pellet hormone therapy may be an effective choice for you in order to reduce:
- Brain fog or memory loss
- Difficulty falling or staying asleep
- Drastic mood swings
- Feelings of anxiety or depression
- Loss of sex drive or libido
- Temperature changes, such as hot flashes or always feeling cold
Each person experiences hormonal changes differently, and it is important to remember the benefits of hormone therapy may also be experienced differently.
How does the process work?
With pellet hormone replacement therapy, pellets are inserted into the body. The pellets are similar in size to a grain of rice, and they are typically placed in the hip or buttock areas.
Over time, the pellets are gradually absorbed by your body. It is important to remember it may take some time to enjoy the benefits of pellet hormone replacement therapy as your body responds to the hormones. While results will vary for each person, most of our patients enjoy the benefits of the pellets for a few months. Each treatment plan is different, and we will customize one for your needs, but most people have the pellets replaced every few months as well.
The process of inserting the pellets is quick and simple, and you should be able to get right back to your normal daily activities. There is little to no discomfort associated with the process.
