Pellets of bioidentical hormones are small, rice-sized pellets that are placed under the skin and released over time. Among all forms of testosterone or estrogen hormone replacement therapy, pellets are the only ones that maintain their effectiveness twenty-four hours a day for several months.
It is the use of bioidentical hormones that makes pellet therapy so effective. Hormones produced by the body are identical in chemical structure to these hormones. Since the body produces these hormones itself, it utilizes them directly. Hormones are not converted into a usable form by the body, which can lead to side effects like weight gain and heart disease. Patients suffering from hormonal imbalances are the best candidates for hormone pellet therapy. Hormonal imbalances are capable of causing a wide range of unwanted symptoms that influence almost every aspect of an individual’s life, from fatigue to weight gain to sexual dysfunction, and more.
There are many different types of bioidentical hormone therapy, including pellet therapy. In this method, tiny pellets smaller than a grain of rice are used to correct hormonal deficiencies in your body. Upon insertion, they begin balancing the body’s hormones immediately. These pellets contain bioidentical hormones derived from natural sources like plants and are molecularly identical to the body’s own hormones.
Due to their close match to the hormones your body makes, they help it achieve balance, eliminate symptoms, and help you feel and look good. Their purpose is to restore balance to the body by giving the hormonal system exactly what it needs to thrive and achieve balance.
BHRT pellets are not typically covered by insurance companies. This means you have to pay out-of-pocket, which usually amounts to about $1,400 per year. While this may seem like a scary number, it is not that much more expensive than other hormone therapies, even when the insurance company covers the majority of the cost because they do not cover travel, doctor’s visits, or copays.
Having the pellets means you don’t have to worry about them again until your next appointment, which could be three to six months later. Compared to hormone replacement therapy pills, bioidentical pellets are cheaper, easier to use, contain the most usable form of hormones, and have the shortest list of side effects.
