What is Bioidentical Hormone Pellet Therapy?

The Hormone Pellets

Hormone pellets are made from natural ingredients that, when medically inserted, balance hormone fluctuations caused by andropause, premenopause, weakening thyroid functions, and other factors that play a role in hormone imbalance. Best of all, there is no need to change your daily routine as you would with pills, gells, or other hormone therapy options. Hormone pellets are regarded as the most natural, effective way to deliver optimal hormone therapy in men and women. Pellets are small implants, about the size of a grain of rice, that are inserted into the skin. The pellets, which cannot be felt, are slowly absorbed over 4-6 months to deliver constant bioidentical hormones into your body. Pellets are able to react to the needs of the body, secreting additional hormones like the body would naturally.

The Procedure

The insertion of pellets is a quick, simple, relatively painless procedure performed with a local anesthetic in the office setting. Taking less than 10 minutes, the area (upper outer buttock) is anesthetized and a very small incision (3-4 mm) is made to allow the insertion of the pellets through a small sterile medical instrument. The pellets are deposited in the fatty tissue below the skin. Then the skin is closed with tape. Complications from the insertion could include minor bleeding or bruising, infection rarely, and extrusion (working its way out) of the insertion site even more rarely. After the insertion, vigorous physical activity should be avoided for 3-7 days. Early physical activity is a cause for the extrusion. Antibiotics may be prescribed for patients at risk for infection or those who have had a joint replacement.
