Hormone Replacement Pellet Therapy

Proudly Serving Galveston County, TX

Benefits of Hormone Pellet Therapy

Bioidentical hormones are used to treat men and women with low hormone levels. They have the same molecular structure as natural human hormones and work the same way. Delivering these medications in pellet form has several benefits:

  • Convenience — You don’t need to worry about remembering to take your medication daily. Hormone pellets may only need to be inserted 3-4 times per year for women and 1-2 times per year for men.
  • Minimal Side Effects — Pellet therapy sends hormones into the bloodstream, avoiding certain side effects of oral medications
Hormone Replacement Pellet Therapy
  • Consistency — Pellets supply a consistent level of hormones in the bloodstream

Conditions Treated

Hormone pellet therapy can be used to treat many of the conditions that bioidentical hormone replacement therapy addresses.

Menopause Symptoms

The most common use of BHRT is to treat the symptoms of menopause in women. These can include hot flashes, night sweats, vaginal dryness, sleep problems, fatigue, weight gain, loss of muscle mass, foggy thinking, and mood changes.

Low Testosterone

Levels of testosterone normally decline with age. Some people have no symptoms, but it can cause men, in particular, to have sexual problems, hair loss, fatigue, loss of muscle and bone mass, fat gain, mood issues and memory problems.

Loss of Bone Density

Postmenopausal osteoporosis affects women during the first decade following menopause. Bones become brittle, fragile, and easy to fracture. This is one of the most common postmenopausal problems doctors treat.

Sexual Dysfunction

BHRT may help with vaginal dryness in women, decreased libido in both sexes, and sexual functioning issues in men.

Muscle and Strength Loss

Men and women can lose muscle mass and strength as hormone levels decrease. Hormone replacement can help patients continue enjoying their favorite sports and activities.

Mood Disorders

Hormonal changes in menopause or andropause can cause or worsen mood swings, anxiety disorders, or depression. In addition to worry, fear, agitation, irritability, nervousness, and irrational thoughts, patients can have physical symptoms — rapid heart rate, shortness of breath, nausea, numbness, lightheadedness, shakiness, and high blood pressure.

Who May Benefit from Pellet Hormone Therapy?

Pellet hormone therapy typically benefits people who have symptoms of hormone imbalance related to age or other factors. In addition to serious medical conditions, as hormone levels decline, both men and women can feel less like “themselves” than when they were younger. They may not have the strength or energy they once had, sex may be difficult or uncomfortable, they may gain or lose weight, and they may be more sensitive to heat and cold. All kinds of things can change, from hair and skin to memory, when the body isn’t producing its optimal level of hormones.
