Hormone Pellet Therapy

Hormone Pellet Therapy

Hormone pellet therapy involves the implantation of estrogen and/or testosterone pellets under the patient’s skin, usually on the upper part of the buttocks. Typically, the pellets are implanted every three to four months and are slowly metabolized over the course of that time. Hormone pellet therapy can alleviate the symptoms of menopause for some women. These symptoms can include hot flashes, mood swings, decreased energy, insomnia and reduced sexual desire. If you are experiencing these symptoms, please speak to your physician about whether hormone pellet therapy may be a solution for you.
