As we age, our hormones can become easily out of balance. Having your hormones not in proper balance can cause a number of troubling symptoms, including irritability and low sex drive. These symptoms and their treatment occur in both men and women. One of the best treatments available is bioidentical hormone pellet therapy. Here’s what you need to know before you consult your doctor.
What It Is
Hormone pellet therapy is bioidentical hormones that are placed under the skin for maximum and consistent effect. Bioidentical hormones are plant and animal based hormones that are scientifically identical to the hormones produced naturally by the human body. These bioidentical hormones are compounded into pellets, which are placed under the skin. This hormone treatment tends to work better than other hormone treatments because the pellets are time released and give a more consistent and effective dosing.
There are many benefits to hormone pellet therapy. Most people experience fewer side effects with bioidentical hormones. Putting these bioidentical hormones into a pellet beneath the skin is preferable to oral hormone supplements because the pellets bypass the digestive system, making the dosing more effective. Pellets are also preferable to other treatments because you only need to worry about it every few months instead of a daily tablet or patch.
