How Do Bioidentical Hormone Pellets Work?

As we age, our bodies produce fewer hormones. Although this is a natural process, it can have life-altering effects that are often quite negative. Reduced energy, sex drive, bone strength, muscle tone, and other symptoms can have a huge effect on your quality of life.

Bioidentical hormone therapy can help you achieve healthier levels of hormones. One method is bio-identical hormone therapy pellets. This is an innovative way to approach hormone replacement for those in their middle years. According to the National Library of Medicine, women are most likely to need hormone therapy between the ages of 50 and 59. Let’s learn more about this option.

What Are Bioidentical Hormones?

Bio-identical hormones are those that would have the same chemical structure as hormones that were naturally produced in your body. When you receive bioidentical hormone therapy, you're receiving hormones meant to balance out the typical levels your body would usually produce.

What Are Hormone Pellets?

Hormone pellets are one type of delivery system for bioidentical hormone therapy. Pellets are composed of compounded estradiol or testosterone created from organic plant materials. These have the same molecular structure as the hormones found in your body. These are pressed into a pellet that is about the size of a grain of rice. These are inserted under the skin around the hip area. These pellets will release small doses of hormones over a period of time. The hormones are released directly into the bloodstream for more effective use by the body.

Why Choose Hormone Pellets?

Hormone pellets are a far more convenient way to receive bioidentical hormone therapy. The hormones are released at a regular rate over time so you are ensured of getting the same amount every day. This is difficult to achieve with other forms of hormone replacement. This method also requires little daily management since you can have it implanted and forget about it. Pellets are effective for about 4-6 months. You will visit your doctor to have new hormone replacement pellets implanted at that time.

These are just a few facts you should know about this innovative form of bioidentical hormone therapy. If you’re interested in learning more about these treatments, please contact us today at Keystone Medical Wellness. We're available to answer any questions you may have.
