Bioidentical Hormonal Pellet Therapy – Data supports that hormone replacement therapy with pellet implants is the most effective and the most bioidentical method to replace hormones in both men and women. Implants placed under the skin, consistently release small, physiologic doses of hormones providing optimal therapy.
This delivery system is an old (old as Premarin) and well-documented method of delivering bioidentical hormones that utilizes small pellets about the size of a grain of rice that are painlessly inserted under the skin (the procedure is less painful than having blood drawn). The easiest and best place to insert them is under the skin of the lateral buttocks.
The hormones in the pellets are bioidentical and consist of either estradiol, the most important of the three female human estrogens, and testosterone. Some women are surprised to hear that they might need testosterone replacement as well as estrogen replacement. Peri-menopausal women and post-menopausal women usually need some of both. Testosterone levels are usually around 5-10% that of a man. Testosterone helps with a number of issues including libido, mood stabilization, brain function, and bone density.
Suzanne Somers has authored two very informative books, “The Sexy Years” and “Ageless”, where she describes the symptoms of menopause, as the Seven Dwarfs of Menopause – Itchy, Bitchy, Sweaty, Sleepy, Bloated, Forgetful and All Dried Up. These symptoms respond extremely well to subcutaneous bioidentical hormone replacement therapy.
Many women have tried various kinds of hormone replacement therapy (HRT), and have simply been dissatisfied with the way they have felt. Others have worried about reports of increased breast cancer or heart attacks. Many women do not do well on any other form of HRT except sub dermal bioidentical pellet therapy.
