What is BHRT Pellet Therapy?
Pellet therapy is a sustainable delivery method for bioidentical hormone therapy. Every three to six months a pellet made of bioidentical hormones is inserted under the patient’s skin, usually on the upper part of the buttocks. The pellets, which contain customized levels of estradiol or testosterone, are slowly metabolized over the course of three to four months, releasing the bioidentical hormone in much the same manner as the body’s natural hormones are secreted.
Why are pellets better than creams, patches, shots or pills?
They are pure hormone that is not metabolized into byproducts by going through the liver, stomach or skin. This delivery system allows your body to use the right amount of hormone from the pellet as the blood flow surrounding the pellets picks up what is needed.
How often will I need pellets?
For women: usually every 3-4 months. For men: usually every 4-5 months.
Where do the pellets go?
Because they are pure hormone without fillers or synthetic ingredients, they completely dissolve.
How long will it take for my body to get back to lean normal?
That depends on how much you exercise and work out with weights, as well as your age. Testosterone decreases fat and increases muscle and lean body mass. Testosterone also increases your natural growth hormone and therefore will improve your stamina to work out and increase muscle mass.
I have no libido – what will this do for that, if anything?
Good hormone balance will greatly improve your libido. The addition of testosterone in pellet form will change everything for the better!
