As a woman, getting older can take a lot out of your self-esteem. It can make you feel like a completely different person and leave you yearning to get back to your old self. If you’re on the hunt for the perfect hormone therapy for women, you may want to consider hormone pellets. Never heard of hormone pellets? Here’s what you need to know.
What Are Hormone Pellets?
Hormone pellets are a form of bioidentical hormone replacement therapy. They’re FDA approved implants made of custom compounded hormones and natural binders that are placed into the hip. This form of hormone replacement is only compounded in one of two licensed FDA outsourcing centers in the United States. The pharmacies in which they are compounded are held to strict standards and are tested for consistency and purity.
What Is it Like to Go Through the Hormone Pellet Process?
The insertion process is pretty simple and can be done quickly. Sit down with the doctors at your local hormone imbalance treatment center and tell them what you want to do. Your doctor will test your current hormone levels and determine if you’re a candidate for pellet insertion. If you are, they will have you set up a follow-up appointment to have the pellets inserted. All in all, it’s a quick, painless procedure.
Are There Any Drawbacks?
There really aren’t many drawbacks to having hormone pellets inserted. The only thing that may be problematic is if you find out your insurance company doesn’t cover the treatment. But compared to other natural estrogen replacement options, hormone pellets are actually pretty cost-effective. They are also a great tool to help you save some money in the long run. Issues with your hormone levels down the road can be pretty costly. By using these pellets, you’re helping to prevent them.
On average, menopause occurs around age 51. If you’re getting to that point in your life, hormone pellets could be a great option to consider. To learn more about this form of bioidentical hormone replacement therapy, contact our team at NuYou Med Clinic today.
