Are you tired of relentless hot flashes, sleepless nights, low energy and/or no sex drive? Therapy that uses hormone pellets in Scottsdale may be the perfect answer for you! They are the best, most natural way to deliver hormones in both men and women.
These pellets are composed of either estradiol or testosterone and are pressed into small solid cylinders. Larger than a grain of rice and smaller than a Tic-Tac, the pellets are inserted during a simple, relatively painless procedure performed under local anesthesia. They are typically placed in the lower abdominal wall or hip through a small incision, which is taped closed.
Why are pellets the best choice for hormone replacement?
Hormone pellets deliver healthy levels of hormones for 3-6 months, depending on the dosage. They don’t cause the fluctuations of hormone levels seen with every other method of hormone delivery. And treatment with hormone pellets in Scottsdale does not increase the risk of blood clots like with conventional or synthetic hormone replacement therapy.
When compared to conventional hormone replacement therapy, pellets have been shown to be superior for relief of menopausal symptoms, maintenance of bone density, restoration of sleep patterns, and improvement in sex drive, libido, sexual response and performance.
Even patients who have failed other types of hormone therapy have a very high success rate with pellets. In addition, there is no other method of hormone delivery that is as convenient for the patient.
What can I expect after the hormone pellets have been inserted?
After pellets are inserted, patients may notice that they have more energy, sleep better and feel happier. Muscle mass and bone density will increase, while fatty tissue decreases. Patients may notice increased strength, coordination and physical performance. They may also see an improvement in skin tone and hair texture. Concentration and memory may improve as will overall physical and sexual health.
Some patients begin to feel better within 24-48 hours, while others may take a week or two to notice a difference.
How long do the pellets last?
The pellets usually last between 3-5 months in women and 5-6 months in men and do not need to be removed because they completely dissolve on their own. High levels of stress, physical activity, some medications and lack of sleep may increase the rate at which the pellet absorb and may require that pellets are inserted sooner in some patients.
