Many women turn to hormone replacement therapy in order to combat their unpleasant and debilitating perimenopausal symptoms. Perimenopause can in some women start as many as ten years before actual menopause, and during this period of time the hormone fluctuations combined with the gradual decrease in overall hormone levels can trigger symptoms like difficulty concentrating, memory problems, hot flashes, fatigue, sleep disturbances, weight gain, and aches and pains. Hormone pellets are a convenient and effective way to regain your equilibrium and feel like yourself again.
Why Choose Hormone Pellets?
Commercially available hormones are usually taken as oral medications, which means hormone levels in the body fluctuate throughout the day, which is contrary to the desired effect of eliminating hormone fluctuations. In addition, oral medications pass through the liver, where they are chemically modified, before reaching the rest of the body. Thus, some of the hormones are converted into altered metabolites that may not benefit the body. When delivered in pellet form, the hormones are formed into tiny pellets that are injected under the skin. The dose can be precisely controlled by adjustment of the number of pellets. The pellets then slowly dissolve, maintaining a constant, steady level of hormones. The pellets are small enough they aren’t noticeable, and since they dissolve, nothing needs to be removed before implanting the next dose. Patches are also an alternative method of delivering a constant, steady dose of hormones, but because they are applied to the skin, they are visible, they can fall off, and they can cause significant skin irritation, none of which occurs with the use of pellets. In summary, the key benefits of bioidentical hormone pellets are:
- Vegan sourced and cruelty-free
- Precise dosing
- Constant, steady level of hormones
- Ease of administration and use
