Fort Lauderdale Pellet Therapy

What is Pellet Therapy?

BHRT 5There are many delivery methods available for bioidentical hormone replacement therapy, but none have gained as much popularity in recent years as pellet therapy. Pellet therapy has become the preferred delivery method for men and women seeking bioidentical hormone replacement therapy due to the convenience of application and the effective dosing.

Pellet therapy is not a new delivery method, in fact, its development and use dates back to the 1930s, debuting around the same time as hormone therapy itself. Pellets are derived from natural, plant-based sources and designed to be structurally identical to the hormones produced by the human body. Each pellet is about the size of a grain of rice and currently available in two forms: bioidentical testosterone and bioidentical estradiol.

For men and women who find pellet therapy to be the best option for treatment, the pellet may be inserted during a simple, in-office procedure. During this visit, the pellet is inserted through a small incision made in the upper hip area and, upon insertion, is sealed closed with medical tape. Following insertion, a natural, steady dose of hormone is released over the course of three to five months—the duration is determined by how fast the body metabolizes the pellet, which varies from person to person.

Benefits of Pellet Therapy

The benefits of pellet therapy are the primary reason more men and women choose pellet therapy and why more doctors recommend it. Unlike other delivery methods, pellets offer, painless, no-hassle dosing and minimal fluctuations between treatments.

Pellet Therapy for Men

Testosterone therapy for men is available in pellet form. Testosterone pellet therapy offers men the opportunity to avoid the pain or side effects associated with testosterone injections. Men also do not have to worry about the daily hassles of applying creams and gels and there is no risk of dangerous transference to women, children or pets. Pellet therapy offers all the same benefits of testosterone therapy, including:

Pellet Therapy for Women

For women, pellet therapy is available as bioidentical testosterone and bioidentical estradiol. For women, pellet therapy eliminates many of the risks associated with oral estrogens or those linked to testosterone and estrogen creams and gels. Both estradiol and testosterone pellets can be effective for addressing menopause symptoms, as well as each offering additional benefits, including:
