Hormone Pellets

What are Hormone Pellets?                                                          

Hormone pellets are a type of HRT (Hormone Replacement Therapy) and help restore testosterone and estrogen levels. The pellets do this by delivering a small, controlled amount of bio-identical hormones into the blood, mimicking the hormone production seen in younger adults. 

Hormone pellets are testosterone or estradiol (a type of estrogen) compounded by a pharmacy into the form of a small pellet. Natural plant compounds are used to make bio-identical hormone pellets, and they’re embedded underneath the skin at the hip, lower abdomen, or buttocks. The procedure is almost pain-free using a local anesthetic and takes 30-45 minutes in the office.

Why Choose Hormone Pellets for HRT?

There are several reasons why hormone replacement pellets may be a great choice for you when compared to other types of hormone therapy. 

  • Pellets release a more consistent amount of hormones into the blood unlike creams, patches, and pills.   This is more like the natural release of hormones in the body.
  • They avoid dangerous accidental rub off the creams/gels to another person or pet
  • No more remembering to take pills, use patches with possible adhesive allergies or have to frequently inject Testosterone.
  • Insertions are required every 3-4 months for women and every 6 months for men
  • Cost is about the same or even less with what you pay fro other types of HRT through insurance.

Prices start at $260 for most women (every 3-4 months) and $560 for most men (every 6 months).  A lot of our clients find that the cost is similar or only slightly higher than what they pay through insurance and for some it is actually lower.
