Are Bioidentical Hormone
Replacement Pellets Right for You?

What are Pellets?
Sterile pellets are a small, cylindrical form of compounded medication prepared using bioidentical hormones. They are used to treat hormone deficiencies and imbalances in both men and women. The pellet is only about the size of a grain of rice and is implanted below the skin in the gluteal or abdominal area during a simple office procedure. The area is numbed using a local anesthetic and a tiny incision is made through which the pellet is inserted using a trochar. Once it is in place, a sterile strip is used to close the incision and covered with an adhesive bandage. Over the course of three to four months, the pellet slowly dissolves as the body draws small, physiologic dosages of the hormone to maintain a more consistent delivery. Once it is dissolved, the procedure is repeated and a new pellet is inserted.

What are pellets used for?
Pellets have been used as a safe, effective way to provide the body with hormones necessary for treatment of a wide variety of conditions. Your health care provider may prescribe pellets for both men and women experiencing menopause or andropause, and with conditions such as:

*testosterone deficiencies *menstrual headaches *low Libido
*Depression *Fatigue *Migraines
*Vaginal Dryness *Urinary Problems *weight gain

Why use pellets?
One of the benefits of pellets is that pellets can be used to deliver hormones to the body that are both structurally and biologically identical to the body’s own hormones. Bioidentical hormones such as estradiol (E2) and testosterone are the most commonly used ingredients. They are slowly released over a period of three to four months, allowing for more
consistent delivery. Because the pellet is placed beneath the skin, once it is inserted, the body naturally does the rest. Patients do not have to remember to take a pill, apply a cream, or give an injection. Patients also do not have to worry about getting the pellet removed because it is safely dissolved by the body over time. Once it is dissolved, the next pellet can be inserted by the physician.
