What are hormone pellets?

Hormone pellets are hormone replacement therapy used to treat an imbalance in both men and women. Hormone pellets are about the size of a grain of rice and contain crystallized and compounded estradiol or testosterone.

Organic plant materials make up the pellets, which have identical structures to the hormones we naturally produce in our bodies! The pellets release small amounts of hormone directly into the bloodstream and consistently release hormones for an average of 10-12 weeks after administration. 

Hormone Pellet Therapy at AgeWellMD

Inserting the hormone pellets

We subcutaneously insert the pellet (inserted under the skin) in the hip or upper buttock area. The doctor cleans and sterilizes, where we plan to inject the shell and apply a local anesthetic to the site. After that, we make a small incision and use a tool called a trocar to insert the pill. We perform the procedure in-house, and the small incision heals quickly. The pellets release a steady dose of hormones and dissolve completely. 

Why choose hormone pellets?

In conclusion, while there are other forms of effective hormone therapy, the pellet has a clear advantage. Because of its “set it and forget it” administration process. For those who want regular dosing without the hassle of self-administering creams or supplements, it’s usually the best choice!
