New Advances in Hormone Therapy
Today, aging men and women have many choices when it comes to hormone replacement, but new advances in estrogen and testosterone pellet therapies are quickly becoming the treatment of choice.
Other options include hormone creams, sublingual troches, patches, or gels. Your provider will discuss all of these options with you during your consultation. If you are early in the menopausal process and your symptoms are mild, you may choose one or these options.
Symptoms Hormone Therapy Can Help Alleviate
If you are a woman who is experiencing the unpleasantness of hot flashes, night sweats, insomnia, vaginal dryness, lack of sex drive, fatigue, aches and pains, poor memory and concentration, moodiness, depression, or any combination thereof, you might be an ideal candidate for hormone replacement therapy.
For women suffering from menopausal symptoms, estrogen, and testosterone pellets seem to be stealing the show! Let’s face it -patches are cumbersome, creams are messy and don’t work well, and pills create swings in blood hormone levels on a daily basis.
Hormone Therapy for Men
Men whose testosterone levels are low experience fatigue, depression, erectile dysfunction, decreased interest in sex, and inability to build muscle. In men, testosterone levels can drop as early as the late 40’s. The symptoms can creep up slowly and can be hard to recognize.
Men are often reluctant to pursue testing. Sexual dysfunction is embarrassing and sometimes humiliating, especially for men. Fatigue can be easily rationalized given our busy demanding schedules.

Estradiol and testosterone pellets are inserted in the fat layer under the skin of the hip and release hormone slowly over time, maintaining constant and reliable blood levels. The hormone levels gradually rise, peak at 3-4 weeks, and then gradually fall over the following few months.
Feel Normal Again With Hormone Pellet Therapy
In the natural pre-menopausal state, ovaries make 3 types of estrogen as well as testosterone and progesterone. These hormones are maintained in a balance. Hormone pellet therapy is better able to mimic pre-menopausal physiologic levels of estradiol. and estrone, Estradiol is one of the 3 types of estrogen that are produced by the ovaries. Pellet therapy also offers the option of adding testosterone, which is produced by the ovaries along with estrogen before menopause.
Women who receive hormone pellets find that they feel normal again, many after suffering for years with difficult menopausal symptoms. These women report no more hot flashes or night sweats. They regain their ability to sleep through the night peacefully and wake up feeling refreshed with a general feeling of well-being.
