Hormone Pellet Therapy for Women
Once you enter your 30s, or even before if you have had a child or hormonal imbalance, you may begin to notice some of the changes that occur as part of the aging process, such as:
- Memory loss
- Acne, oily or dry skin
- Low energy levels
- Decreased libido
- Moodiness or depression
- Poor sleep quality
Decreased energy levels and a slower metabolism can have an undesired impact on almost every aspect of your life. From hot flashes to night sweats, mood swings and even difficulty falling or staying asleep a hormonal imbalance can seem overwhelming. However, thanks to ongoing medical research and scientific breakthroughs, we are able to better understand why our bodies change the way they do. Gaining knowledge about what is happening in the body as well as the impact this change in hormone levels has on the body when going from pre-menopause to post-menopause. Just because we are getting older, no longer means that we have to feel older.
While it is comforting to know that there are options in combating the unwanted or even debilitating effects of aging, you may still have some concerns. Whether it is the desire to avoid synthetic hormones or the worry that your traditional doctor is looking to treat your symptoms and not their cause, then hormone pellet therapy is the solution you’ve been looking for.
What Is Hormone Pellet Therapy?
One of the best ways to introduce bio-identical hormone replacement therapy to the body is with the use of pellets. A pellet is about the size of a grain of rice, derived from yams, roots, and other natural resources, which are then compounded into a pellet form. Pellets are bio-identical which means that they mimic the natural molecular structure of hormones already found in the body, such as testosterone and estradiol. Pellet insertion is a simple in-office procedure where the hormones are inserted under the skin into the hip or buttock region. Although it is a relatively painless procedure, a local anesthetic is available and most compare it to receiving a shot or injection. Pellets are absorbed by the body at a controlled rate which allows them to remain active in the body for three to four months. Since they are absorbed directly into the bloodstream and are always readily available for the body to use, the hormone levels remain consistent for the entirety of the insertion.

When Should You Begin Hormone Pellet Therapy?
Just as we all have differences in our external appearance, our internal performance varies as well. Bio-identical hormone replacement therapy is recommended when symptoms begin as the symptoms are brought on by a hormone deficiency or imbalance. This is important as your hormone levels have a significant role in the body’s function. The longer that levels are not optimal the more the symptoms occur and are able to create a snowball effect. When left unchecked this can begin to impact other hormone levels such those made by the adrenal glands.
Most women think that hormone replacement therapy is needed once they have reached menopause when in fact symptoms can begin much sooner. Women enter a stage called pre-menopause or perimenopause which can start 5-10 years before periods cease. Symptoms persist and can worsen throughout perimenopause and menopause. Your body will always perform most efficiently when hormone levels are properly balanced as all aspects of life are impacted by your hormones. The practitioners at Tampa Rejuvenation use a comprehensive blood work panel to assess your hormone levels as well as the symptoms you are experiencing to determine the deficiency. This allows them to discover the exact combination of hormones and dosing needed to rectify your body’s imbalances and alleviate your symptoms.
Once the pellets are implanted, patients will begin to notice their symptoms fading. Some women notice an improvement very rapidly and become symptom-free within a couple of weeks. Others are more gradual, noticing that they are feeling a little better each day, but taking 3-6 weeks for symptoms to improve significantly. As the levels are restored you will notice you are sleeping better, energy improves, libido returns and an overall sense of balance is restored.
