Learn more during a consultation with us at Huntington Lifestyle Partners in Pasadena, CA!
What Is Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Pelleting?
Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy pelleting is a minimally invasive approach to balancing hormone levels. This approach to hormone therapy does not require the daily hassle of pills, creams, or patches. Instead, this treatment process involves the specific placement of a pellet to deliver hormones directly into your bloodstream.
Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy pelleting may help alleviate frustrating effects of shifting hormone levels, such as:
- Chronic fatigue
- Decline in sex drive or sexual satisfaction
- Feelings of anxiety or depression
- Mood swings
- Unexplained weight gain
- …and more!
Hormones are essential to facilitating a variety of bodily functions, and they naturally shift and decline over time, particularly as we age.
What Could I Expect from the Treatment Process?
Bioidentical hormone replacement pelleting requires regular but brief visits to our Pasadena office. During each visit, pellets are carefully inserted into the area between the hip and buttock. The pellets are comparable in size to a grain of rice, and the process should be short with little to no discomfort associated with the experience.
Results achieved with pellet hormone therapy will vary for each person and take some time to enjoy. Your body will gradually absorb the pellet, and the hormones in the pellet work to balance your hormone levels. It is important to be realistic with your expectations for treatment, and it is essential to remember the best results will require frequent treatment sessions to replace the pellets.
Could I Benefit from Hormone Therapy?
Generally speaking, bioidentical hormone replacement pelleting is recommended to men and women who have experienced or are currently experiencing andropause or menopause, respectively. It is a treatment commonly recommended to individuals as they grow older as the body goes through many changes as a result of shifting hormonal levels.
A consultation with our professionals in Pasadena can help you better understand if this hormone therapy method is right for you. They will discuss your experiences, analyze your hormone levels, and work with you to identify which hormone levels may be the cause of your concerns. They will work with you to develop your personalized treatment plan.
