There are many confusing options when thinking about hormone replacement. We are here to take our time exploring your concerns and explaining the options for you. We see both men and women for these concerns.
What Is Hormone Pellet Therapy?
The pellets are made from natural plants to replicate the closest to our body’s normal hormones. Implants are placed just under the skin between the fat and muscle layer. They release tiny and regular doses of hormones into the body, maintaining correct and natural levels. Other treatments, such as oral and transdermal therapy (patches and creams), produce high levels of hormones all at once. These levels can then drop off just as quickly. The result is like a roller coaster ride for the patient. which cause mood and energy fluctuations to occur. Pellet therapy allows a constant flow of hormones into the body, avoiding those negative effects. Since the hormones used are from a natural source, this method is perfect for patients who don’t want synthetic hormones put into their bodies. Hormonal creams are messy and ineffective, and pills cause daily mood swings.
Insertion of the pellet is an in-office procedure. There is very little , if any, pain. We use a local anesthetic, and makes a tiny cut in the upper hip/buttock area. The actual pellet, which is slightly larger than a grain of rice, is then inserted. There are no stitches, and tape is used to seal the cut. It heals quickly in 5-7 days.
Most women hit menopause between the ages of 45-55 but start perimenopause earlier than this. Hormone levels drop and this results in numerous negative effects. Symptoms can be:
- Weight gain
- Hot flashes
- Brain Fog
- Body aches
- Difficulty with concentration
- Vaginal dryness
- Painful intercourse

Most who undergo pellet therapy treatment report major positive changes. They can sleep through the night and wake up feeling refreshed and energized. Their sex drive also comes back. Many migraine sufferers have a decrease in frequency or no headaches at all after pellets.
