What Is BHRT Pellet Therapy?

Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) can come in oral, topical and pellet forms. BHRT using pellets has many advantages over other hormone modalities. Pellets are tiny, custom-compounded therapies for symptoms that stem from hormonal imbalances. This approach to hormone therapy keeps levels consistent throughout the day and avoids the rollercoaster-like effects from orally or topically administered hormones. The BHRT pellet therapy utilizes bioidentical hormones like those found in the human body. Studies have shown that bioidentical hormones have fewer side effects than synthetic hormones.

Why Bioidentical Pellet Therapy?

Because it’s easy! As a hormone replacement therapy patient, you receive two to four bioidentical hormone pellet insertions per year. This way you don’t have to think about it, and the hormone is available when your body needs it. It’s a simple, one-and-done process, and there’s no need to worry about remembering to take a pill every day. Feel better no matter your age. Our bioidentical hormones will help you avoid the adverse side effects of synthetic hormones.


How Long Does a Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Pellet Take to Work?

Each hormone replacement therapy patient’s symptoms are unique, so is each patient’s path to hormone optimization. Most hormone therapy patients report some symptom resolution in as little as a month, but full optimization may take up to six months. Your bioidentical hormone therapy journey will be customized to fit your specific needs.

It takes more than a few weeks for your hormones to get out of balance, so you can appreciate the fact that it may take a little time to get your hormones back to an optimal level.
