Bioidentical Hormone Pellets

What are Bioidentical Hormone Pellets?

Bioidentical Hormones are the safest, most natural way to achieve hormonal balance for women (but men can use them, too!). Women of all ages may suffer from symptoms of hormone imbalance, although women in their 40s, 50s and 60s may feel these symptoms most strongly due to menopause. Bioidentical hormone pellets is one of the best ways to receive the benefits of balanced hormones.

Ease Symptoms of Hormonal Imbalance

Bioidentical Hormone Pellets can help ease the following hormone imbalance symptoms and many more:

  • Hot flashes
  • Cold sweats
  • Weight gain
  • Anxiety
  • Memory lapses
  • Sexual dysfunction
  • Depression
  • Brain fog
  • Lack of energy
  • Sleep disturbances
  • Insomnia
  • Tearfulness or crying spells
  • Heart palpitations
  • Concentration problems

A Better Way to Balance Your Hormones

Traditionally, bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) may take the form of sublingual drops or tablets, pills, creams, injections or any combination of these options. Doctors and patients agree that, while these methods of administering the hormones may suit some people, for most women, pellets are the preferred method of administration. For instance, it may be difficult to remember to take doses of pills daily for people with hectic schedules or for those who travel for work or pleasure. There are also issues with metabolizing the hormones when taken orally. Creams and gels may contaminate people with whom you have skin to skin contact, such as your partner or small children. They also may decrease in efficacy over time due to hormone receptors becoming saturated at the sites of application.

Our doctors recommend bioidentical hormone pellets as an easy, effective way to receive your hormone therapy. Pellet therapy uses the same, compounded bioidentical hormones that are used in pills, creams and tablets – except they are administered in rice grain-sized pellets. These pellets are implanted by the doctor just under the skin in a very minor procedure that takes only minutes. After the implantation has taken place, you may begin feeling the positive effects of your balanced hormones within 24-48 hours. This dose of hormones will last 4-8 months, depending on your body’s needs.

Benefits of using BHRT pellets include:

  • Eliminate the need to remember a daily dose of hormones
  • Ensure you have the exact amount of hormones your body needs daily
  • Increased bio-availability
  • Avoid peaks and valleys of hormone strength you usually feel with pills/creams administration
  • Avoid skin rashes sometimes seen in people who use creams
  • Avoid digestive irritations and unpleasant taste associated with pills or drops

How do Bioidentical Hormone Pellets Work?

These tiny hormones, once implanted, work with your body to release just the right amount of hormones into your blood stream, as your body needs it. No more, no less. That way you always have the perfectly balanced hormones, without any kind of rollercoaster effect, no matter where you are or what you are doing. No bottles of pills or creams to remember. No danger of poorly metabolized hormones or saturated receptor sites. Using pellets has been a life-changing experience for our patients and, for many, has increased the benefits of their hormone therapy greatly.

If you are interested in finding out whether or not you are a candidate for BHRT Pellet therapy, make an appointment with our holistic gynecologist, Dr. Emine Cosar so she can evaluate your medical needs, explain your options and describe how bioidentical hormone pellet therapy can benefit you.
