Hormone Replacement Therapy Through Pellet Implants
Hormone replacement therapy pellets are tiny pellets that are inserted into a person in order to balance the hormones in the body. These FDA approved bioidentical hormones have shown a lot of improvement in men and women and they prove to be much more effective than other forms of testosterone replacement and estrogen replacement therapy.
Understanding Pellet Implant Treatments
Pellet Implant treatments ensure that adequate hormones are supplied to men and women. The pellet is very small and it consists of hormones, usually a combination of testosterone and estradiol. The pellets are given consistently to women for around 3 months and to men for around 4 months in order to maintain balanced levels of hormones in the body. The balance is necessary to prevent diseases in the body.
Hormone replacement therapy also helps to prevent many menopausal symptoms, restore irregular sleep patterns, improve sex drive and libido, maintain bone density etc. Bio identical hormone replacement therapy in the form of pellets has proven to be one of the most successful ways for estrogen and testosterone replacement.
Procedure for Hormone Replacement Therapy
The produce for pellet implant treatments is very simple. It is conducted under local anesthesia and there is very little pain involved. A small incision is made and the pellets are inserted into the upper area of the buttocks. The incision is then closed with a skin tape and most patients are allowed to walk out 15 minutes after the procedure and carry on with their lives.
Risks and Cost of this Treatment
There are very few risks to this treatment and the risks occur extremely rarely. In fact, because this is a natural hormone replacement method, there is no increased risk of breast cancer as is seen with some other forms of treatment. Most of the time, any problem that comes out of this treatment occurs due to improper insertion of the pellet. This makes it very important for you to go to a trained and experienced medical professional for this procedure. They should not only know exactly how to insert the pellet but they also need to be able to give you the exact dose of hormones that are necessary for your body.
The cost of this treatment varies depending on the number of pellets that need to be inserted or the dose of hormones that need to be given to the patient. Men usually need more testosterone pellets than most women so the cost for their treatment is usually higher. However, if you compare the cost of this treatment to other treatment plans in the long term, pellet treatments work out very cost effective because you will get results much faster. And of course, the cost of treating the problem is definitely much cheaper than having to pay for getting rid of any disease or illness that might occur due to a hormonal imbalance.
