Recovery Time & Side Effects

You may experience bruising, swelling, and/or redness of the insertion site lasting a few days up to 2-3 weeks.  Infections rarely occur.

How Hormone Therapy Works

Hormone pellets, estrogen or testosterone, are placed under the skin where they release the bioidentical hormone, exactly like what your own body produces. In addition to Estrogen and Testosterone levels, your blood work analysis may reveal a deficiency of Thyroid hormone or Vitamin D. A comprehensive plan for Homone Optimization plus nutraceuticals will be recommended for you to live a healthier, happier lifestyle!

The Treatment Process

Step 1

The Consultation

Optimization begins with an office visit to identify and discuss symptoms such as a lack of energy and fatigue during the day, loss of libido, difficulty sleeping and reduced mental focus.  There may be screening for conditions where hormone treatment is to be avoided.

Step 2

Lab Work

Next, blood will be drawn to evaluate baseline hormone levels. This comprehensive lab analysis will help guide the treatment plan recommended for you to have the best possible outcome.

Step 3

Insert Pellets

The pellets are inserted under sterile conditions, using a local anesthetic and is quick and well tolerated. Possible insertion sites include buttocks or an abdominal approach, with alternating left and right sides.

 

Step 4

Post Procedure

A steri-strip is placed over the injection site, gauze and an outer plastic dressing is applied. An ice pack is used at the site of the pellets for 20 minutes, with additional applications over the next 4-5 hours as desired.

Post Procedure

Post-procedure instructions for women include no strenuous exercise/activity and no swimming/hot tubs/tub bathing for 3 days. You can remove the plastic dressing after 3 days.

Women receive treatment 3-4 times a year. Each individual has their own levels where symptoms begin to return, signaling time for a new round of pellets.
