Both men and women often find themselves facing uncomfortable and sometimes embarrassing symptoms as they age. When we age, our natural hormone production is decreased, causing any number of symptoms including hot flashes, mood changes, and sexual dysfunction. There are many treatments available for hormone deficiencies and imbalances, but one of the most effective is hormone pellet therapy. There are several advantages to this type of hormone replacement therapy.
With many other hormone replacement therapies, the hormones being introduced can fluctuate in strength over the course of the treatment. This means that your symptoms may disappear for a time, but they will return and could potentially be worse until you start the next dose. With hormone pellet therapy, a constant, consistent amount of hormones are released over the course of three to six months. This is a much more consistent and effective way to get the hormones into your system.
No Daily or Weekly Routine
Many hormone replacement therapy options require you to take a pill or insert a tablet or ring every day or once a week. Hormone patches also have to be replaced daily or weekly, depending on the brand and dosing. With hormone pellet therapy, there is no daily or weekly maintenance. Your hormone pellet is inserted beneath the skin in our office, and you need not do anything about it for three to six months until the pellet dissolves and you need a new pellet.
Hormone pellet therapy uses bioidentical hormone replacement. This means that the hormones come from natural sources that are scientifically identical to the hormones produced by the human body. This makes it a more natural and stable treatment option than the synthetic hormones used in most traditional hormone replacement therapy.
