What is Hormone Pellet Therapy?
Let’s start by talking about what pellet hormone replacement therapy is. Pellet hormone replacement therapy helps people that are not producing enough testosterone or estrogen in their bodies. Not having the correct amount of hormones in your body causes low libido, inability to perform sexually, fatigue, irritability, and the inability to remember facts. Pellet hormone replacement therapy is a way to provide you with the hormones that your body is not producing so that you can feel like yourself again.
Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy
The pellets used in this treatment are a replica of the hormones that are found in our bodies. The pellets have estradiol or testosterone made from organic plant materials. The hormones in the pellets are bio-identical which means that they have the exact chemical structure of hormones that your body produces naturally. This makes it so that your body will accept the hormones and allow it to function at optimum level. The pellets are about the size of a grain of rice.
Hormone Pellet Therapy Process
If you choose to try pellet hormone replacement therapy you are probably interested in what happens during the procedure. The pellets are inserted under the skin near your hip. Once they are inserted they will release small amounts of hormone directly into your bloodstream. Research has shown that this method of hormone replacement therapy is extremely effective because it delivers the hormones directly through your bloodstream. Many people recommend this over other options like creams, pills, or patches.
Benefits of Estrogen Hormone Replacement Therapy During Menopause
Typically women will choose pellet hormone replacement therapy when they start to go through menopause. When you go through menopause your body stops making as much estradiol. The lower levels of estradiol increases risks of osteoporosis and bone fractures. As we said above there are other options like creams, pills, or patches for hormone replacement.
Natural Male Testosterone Hormone Replacement Therapy
Men also can participate in pellet hormone replacement therapy. The most common reason that men will try this therapy is because they are having a decreased libido and trouble maintaining an erection. Other symptoms that might cause men to try this therapy are sluggishness; loss of energy; hair loss; increase in body fat; decrease in muscle mass; irritability; or depression.
