What Are Pellets?

Hormone replacement pellets are made of either estradiol or testosterone. Naturally derived from soybeans, these hormones are identical to those produced by our bodies. Hormones are pressed into small, solid pellets larger than a grain of rice, but smaller than a Tic-Tac. These pellets are made by pharmacists and delivered to our office in sterile glass vials. Being made of natural compounds, pellets are completely absorbed by the body.

Benefits of hormone replacement pellet therapy include:

As we age, often times important hormone levels drop as well.  At Contemporary Health Center, we are committed to providing relief for men and women suffering from symptoms of hormone deficiency.  With a free consultation and a simple blood test, Dr. Bloy can help you determine if this treatment is right for you.

We are finding great success for our patients with this time-tested process, Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Pellet Therapy. Utilizing a quick, simple, painless in-office procedure, performed with a local anesthetic, tiny pellets are inserted under the skin allowing the medication to be absorbed over the next 4 to 6 months.

The results are exceptional and many times, more economical than other treatments.  Men and women are experiencing better sleep and more energy in general.  They are enjoying an increase in libido, a reduction in “hot flashes” for women and one of the best results, weight loss!

I just want to send a quick note to let you know my experience with the hormone pellets. Prior to getting them, I was on a couple different medicines which did not work very well. I used to go to sleep very cold and wake up in a sweaty hot flash. Then I would get cold and start the process all over again. I had low energy and was very uncomfortable. After receiving my first injection, my life changed for the better. I no longer have any symptoms that I used to have every day!!! They changed my life. I am able to sleep which makes my life so much better in addition to not sweating like crazy on a daily basis! I am a much happier and comfortable person now. I would (and have) recommend them to everyone. Thank you

FAQs

Female Pellet Therapy Insertion is $399 lasting 3-5 months

Male Pellet Therapy Insertion is $699 lasting 5-6 months

Labs and additional medical visits are not included in the insertion cost. Labs and many medical visits are often covered by your health insurance at little or no out of pocket cost to you. Lab fees are payable directly to the lab of choice and not to us. Uninsured patients are charged $125 for office visits and lab fees at the lowest possible cost in our office. We make every effort to keep the costs low and order only the most comprehensive lab tests without resulting in excessive costs to our patients. We want pellet therapy to be as affordable to all who need it!

Unlike creams, pills, and patches, pellets deliver more consistent and healthy levels of hormones into the body. Pellets are absorbed over the course of 3-5 months for women, and over the course of 4-6 months for men. Pellets are ideal because they avoid the delivery fluctuations experienced with other hormone delivery systems.

Additionally, these natural hormones don’t increase the risk of blood clots in the same way as synthetic hormones. Pellet therapy maintains an extremely high success rate, even for patients who have tried other systems of hormone therapy with little or no results.

Estrogen pellets help to maintain your body’s ideal balance of estradiol. This not only regulates your mood and restores sleep patterns, estradiol pellets can also relieve menopausal symptoms such as hot flushes, night sweats, as well as improved sexual drive and even help to maintain ideal bone density. For women, estrogen pellets have been shown to treat migraines, menstrual headaches, incontinence, vaginal dryness, and urinary  urgency.

Testosterone pellets are used in both men and women, and will increase your lean body mass (strengthening muscles and bone density) and decrease your fat mass.

The most common response from our patients about pellet therapy is that it has restored their quality of life. With Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy, both men and women may experience the following benefits:

  • Decreased Body Fat
  • Increased Muscle Strength and Endurance
  • Restored or Increased Sex Drive
  • Relief from Depression and Anxiety
  • Increased Energy Levels
  • Greater Focus and Mental Clarity
  • Relief from Hot Flashes, Night Sweats, and Insomnia

Before hormone pellets are administered, we’ll draw your blood and send it to the lab for analysis. This will allow us to establish baseline hormone levels in your system. We can then determine the optimal hormone dose on an individual basis.

For women, we will measure testosterone, free testosterone, estradiol, and follicle-stimulating hormone. Levels of thyroid hormone may also be checked.

For men, testosterone, prostate specific antigen, estradiol, blood count, and liver profile levels will all be checked.

For men, testosterone levels are highest in the morning. So it’s best to have your levels checked earlier in the day. For women, levels are more consistent throughout the day so they may be checked at any time. If you are still having your period, hormone levels should be checked a week prior to, or after your period.

After your ideal hormone levels are determined and pellets are administered, your levels will need to be checked again after one month.

The pellet therapy procedure is simple, quick, and painless. After administering a local anesthetic, pellets are inserted usually in the upper hip area through a tiny incision. Following the insertion, we’ll put a Band-Aid on the incision are and send you on your way.

Many patients begin feeling positive effects as soon as 24-48 hours following insertion. For other patients, results may be felt in a week or two. While hormone balance plays a key role in achieving optimal health, proper diet, regular exercise, and stress management are also important.

Because they’re made of only natural compounds, pellets will be completely absorbed by your body. This means there will be no residue, no bumps, and no sign of them at the injection site. For women, pellets will last between 3 and 4 months. While for men, pellets last for 4 to 6 months.

Occasionally, a booster pellet could be inserted, if necessary. This is sometimes needed due to differences in activity level, stress level, your body’s own hormone depletion, and individual metabolism from patient to patient. This is the reason we’ll measure your hormone levels again after one month from your original pellet insertion.

Though it’s a common misconception, pellet therapy isn’t only for women experiencing menopause. Women may begin to experience hormone imbalance at any age. Hormone levels can decline or fluctuate, resulting in sometimes debilitating symptoms. Pellets are ideal for severe PMS, postpartum depression, sleeping disorders, migraines, or menstrual headaches as well as menopause. Pellet therapy could even treat testosterone deficiency caused by birth control pills.

Dr. Bloy believes that women should continue pellet therapy as long as they would like. Benefits experienced from pellet therapy will continue as long as the treatment does. Additionally, estrogen is vital to protecting against osteoporosis and premature loss of teeth. Estrogen could possibly reduce the risk of heart disease and Alzheimer’s.

Yes! Testosterone levels begin to decline for men in their early thirties. By age 45, or before, testosterone levels in most men are low enough that they would benefit from pellet therapy. Regardless of age, however, you should have your hormone levels checked if you show any signs of hormone deficiency:

  • Fatigue
  • Depression
  • Erectile Dysfunction
  • Bone Loss
  • Mental Decline
  • Difficulty Sleeping

Yes! Estrogen pellet therapy has shown great success in dramatically reducing hormone-related migraines and headaches.

If you’re experiencing low libido, sexual dysfunction, pain during intercourse, or lack of sexual desire, these could all be signs of hormone deficiency. Achieving optimal hormone balance can restore your quality of life by greatly improving sexual function, interest, and enjoyment.

A common cause of hair loss is suboptimal hormone levels. Pellet therapy can absolutely help to re-grow hair.
