Women in their post-menopausal period are more vulnerable to hormonal imbalances and their consequences. Pellet therapy is the most natural way to replenish hormone levels for women and men. Implants, placed under the skin, consistently release small, physiologic doses of bioidentical hormones just like those found normally in your body providing optimal therapy. The hormones are absorbed directly into the bloodstream avoiding the liver and gastrointestinal system. Studies show this method to be best for improving mental clarity and sexual function.
Pellet Therapy FAQ’s
Most patients experience no pain with their hormone pellet insertion. However, to help alleviate any discomfort, a local anesthetic is applied to the insertion site before the procedure. Tenderness, redness, and a little bruising is standard up to 3-4 days after insertion, but the entire process is considered generally quick and painless.
Although every patient experience is unique, most report symptom relief within 2-4 weeks, but full hormone optimization could take closer to 6 months. Regular follow-up and contact with your doctor is vital following the procedure; this allows your provider the opportunity to monitor and customize hormone optimization based on your symptoms and blood work.
