Hormone Pellet Therapy Q&A

What is hormone pellet therapy?

Hormone pellet therapy is a convenient delivery method for hormone replacement therapy (HRT). It uses tiny pellets implanted just below the skin’s surface. The pellets release a steady flow of hormones into the body.

Each pellet is about the size of a grain of rice and provides a three-month supply of hormones.

Which symptoms can hormone pellet therapy address?

Hormone pellet therapy benefits the body by replacing hormones depleted by aging or rebalancing hormones affected by stress or illness. While each body is unique, everyone needs hormonal balance to function properly.

If your hormones aren’t balanced, you could notice symptoms like:

  • Fatigue
  • Lack of libido (lowered sex drive)
  • Moodiness
  • Decreased bone density
  • Constipation
  • Numbness or tingling in the hands
  • Anxiety
  • Coarse or dry skin and hair
  • Depression
  • Inability to tolerate heat or cold
  • Hot flashes
  • Irregular or heavy periods
  • Vaginal dryness

Hormone pellet therapy ensures that your body has what it needs, restoring balance and easing troublesome symptoms.

What can I expect during my hormone pellet therapy appointment?

The Marietta OB-GYN Affiliates team completes a thorough assessment and discusses your medical history and symptoms.

If you’re a candidate for hormone pellet therapy, your provider will numb the insertion area (usually near the hip or buttocks) and make a small incision. They’ll place the pellet underneath the skin and close the incision, which should heal quickly.

What can I expect after my hormone pellet therapy?

You’ll experience various benefits, depending on your body’s needs. These include:

  • Reduced body fat or improved fat distribution
  • Improved sex drive
  • Better mood and increased energy
  • Protection against heart disease

Hormone therapy can also relieve menopause symptoms and protect you against osteoporosis, a disease that weakens the bones, making them brittle. The pellet method offers a more direct absorption into the bloodstream, avoiding your liver and gastrointestinal system. You also don’t have to worry about applying creams, gels, or patches.
