Video Testimonial  |  Pellet Insertion Animation

What are the benefits to hormone pellet therapy?

Potential benefits of testosterone:

  • More energy
  • Better libido
  • Improved sense of well-bring
  • Better short-term memory
  • Improved bone density
    Potential benefits of estradiol:
  • Eliminate hot flashes and night sweats
  • Smooth out mood swings
  • Help anxiety and irritability
  • Cardiovascular protection
  • Protect against colon cancer

Is hormone pellet therapy new?

Not at all – this approach has been in medical use since the 1940’s.

What hormones are used in the pellets?

Only bioidentical hormones are used in the pellets, either testosterone only (men and premenopausal women) or estradiol and testosterone (appropriate menopausal women).

How often do I need to have the pellet insertion procedure?

Women typically can go 4 months between pellet insertions, while men can usually go
for 6 months.

How do the pellets release the hormones?

This is not like a shot of medicine. Your body develops a micro-blood supply around the pellets, making them behave like ovaries or testicles, where the hormone goes into the blood stream in micro-dosing, based on your body’s needs.

Are there any risks to the procedure?

The pellet insertion procedure takes a few minutes in the office. Because there is a small skin incision (not big enough to need a stitch – it heals with a special bandage), there is a rare chance of infection or bleeding. On occasion, in some individuals the pellets will extrude (come out) between insertion procedures. We are usually able to figure out why this happened and prevent it from happening again. Some pain at the insertion site usually resolves within a few days after the pellet insertion.

Are there any risks or side effects to the hormones?

In my medical opinion, there are no risks of medical adverse effects on your health from bioidentical hormone therapy, including pellet therapy (please see drlizmd.com/blog for much more on this topic). Common side effects may include, for women using testosterone: some acne or facial hair growth, or some water retention initially (which tends to resolve as more muscle develops). Risks vs. benefits, and side effects, are discussed in detail prior to the hormone pellet insertion to make sure you are a good candidate for this approach.

What weight loss program do you recommend?
