Pellets

What are pellets?

Pellets are tiny cylindrical shaped medications that are compounded using biologically identical hormones (most often estradiol or testosterone).

They are placed just under the skin consistently releasing physiologic doses of bioidentical hormones.

Pellet insertion is a relatively simple in-office procedure done under local anesthesia.

The pellets are inserted subcutaneously (under the fatty lining of skin), either in the lower abdomen or upper buttocks through a minimal incision, then the incision is closed with sterile-tape strips.

Pellets last 3-4 months in women and 5-6 months in men.

Benefits to using pellets

  • Pellet implants deliver consistent, physiologic levels of hormones.
  • The consistent and physiologic dosing has been shown to maintain and improve bone density.
  • Pellet implants are a one-time procedure. There is no more worrying about creams, injections, or supplements.
  • Due to steady absorption, there is less fluctuation of symptoms.

  • Hormones are released into the bloodstream in a way that mimics your hormone rhythm.
  • A consistent supply of hormones delivered through pellets reduces the chances of experiencing adverse side effects.
  • Pellet implants bypass the liver and don’t negatively impact clotting factors, blood pressure, lipid levels, glucose, or liver function.
