Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) Pellets are a great option for many of our Tulsa clinic patients. We were very reluctant to offer this procedure for a long time. However, after reviewing all of the data available how Pellets are inserted & managed as well as the quality of pellets it became clear that we simply had to offer this procedure.
Pellet insertion is safe, easy to do, very effective, bio-identical hormone replacement therapy.
Here are some questions to consider:
How often will I need pellets?
- For women: usually every 3-4 months.
- For men: usually every 4-5 months.
Why are pellets better than creams, patches, shots, or pills? The pellets are pure hormones that are not metabolized into byproducts by going through the liver, stomach or skin. This delivery system allows your body to use the right amount of hormone from the pellet as the blood flow surrounding the pellets picks up what is needed. In a word, it is the most natural and physiologic way to replace hormones.
Where do the pellets go? Because they are pure hormone without fillers or synthetic ingredients, they completely dissolve.
I want to loose weight…How long will it take for my body to get back to lean normal? That depends on how much you exercise and work out with weights, as well as your age. Testosterone decreases fat and increases muscle and lean body mass. Testosterone also increases your natural growth hormone and therefore will improve your stamina to work out and increase muscle mass. Testosterone is optimized with pellet therapy more than any other treatment including creams and injections.
I have no libido. What will Pellets do for that? Optimal bio-identical hormone balance will greatly improve your libido. The addition of testosterone in pellet form will change everything for the better!
I get horrible headaches. Will Pellets help with that? Yes! We have had great success, especially with women who have menstrual migraines, and new migraines that appear after age 35.
Why do I need estrogen? Estrogen is one of the most important hormones for a woman. It protects her against heart attack, stroke, osteoporosis, and Alzheimer’s. It also keeps us looking young and healthy.
Why do I need testosterone? Testosterone is the third female hormone and is as essential as estrogen and progesterone. We need this hormone to keep our thought process quick and our libido healthy. It improves bone density, muscle mass, strength and prevents some types of depression. It is also the source of energy and solid sleep!
Will I grow unwanted hair from testosterone? There is less chance of excess hair growth with natural testosterone than with synthetic hormones. Facial hair will grow with testosterone pellets, but normally no more than when you were in your thirties.
