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.
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.
Men whose testosterone levels are low experience fatigue, depression, erectile dysfunction, decreased interest in sex, and inability to build muscle.
Here at Deborah Wilson & Associates, we consider ourselves experts on the treatment of a variety of hormone alterations and deficiencies, using pellets and a complete array of the most up-to-date methodologies available.
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.
For women suffering with 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.
This office has been offering hormone pellet therapy for the last 15 years. We accept insurance payment for pellets if your insurance covers this service, and many companies do. Even if your insurance company does not cover pellets, you will find that our pricing is reasonable and affordable.
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.
