WOMEN WHO ARE going through menopause or are post-menopausal often turn to hormone replacement therapy as a way to improve libido, regulate mood, and improve bone density, as well as treat the other symptoms associated with decreased estrogen production. While synthetic hormones are often used, pellet implantation therapy is an effective alternative.
WHAT IS HORMONE PELLET IMPLANTATION THERAPY?
Hormone pellet implantation therapy uses hormones and estrogen that are naturally derived from plant sources. The hormone-containing pellets, which are extremely small in nature, are placed in fatty tissues under the skin. The hormones are then released on a continual and sustained basis into the bloodstream. Hormone pellet implantation therapy is often called bio-identical hormone replacement therapy, as it replicates the body’s normal hormone levels.
BENEFITS OF HORMONE PELLET IMPLANTATION
Pellet implantation therapy can offer the following health benefits:
- Improved sexual drive and performance
- Decreased anxiety and depression
- Maintenance of bone density
- Improved incontinence
- Relief from other menopausal symptoms (headaches, hot flashes, etc.)
