Hormone Replacement Therapy
Another option for patients seeking hormone replacement therapy is through hormone pellets. These "rice-sized" pellets are implanted placed under the skin and gradually releases small doses of bio-identical hormones, providing an optimal delivery of estradiol or testosterone. Unlike other forms of hormone therapy pellets avoid the “up and down” fluctuations of hormone levels. With pellets patients can experience sustained hormone levels for three to four months.
Insertion is easily performed during a simple office procedure where customized pellets are placed just under the skin in the fatty tissue of the upper buttocks. The slow release of hormones from the pellets closely mimic the function of healthy ovaries in regards to hormone release into the bloodstream. Additionally, pellets do not need to be removed and completely dissolve on their own.
