Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy;
Hormone Pellet Therapy
As we grow older, numerous changes occur in our body including the hormonal changes. Hormone therapy is an endorsed clinical treatment determined to re-establish your hormonal equilibrium, relieve the symptoms of hormone imbalance , and improve your general wellbeing and health.
For females, the greatest changes happen around menopause. Estrogen levels fall down steeply, causing a number of side effects. For Men testosterone starts to decline after 30 years of age.
Hormone Pellet Therapy is a natural and bioidentical hormone replacement treatment that involves inserting the testosterone and estradiol pellets in fatty tissues of body. That little pellet allows ceaseless flow of hormones in body. This continual release of hormones is the key to improve brain functionality and muscle strength. Other hormone replacement treatment forms include pills, gels, sprays etc.

What are the advantages of Hormone Pellet Therapy?
- The hormones are directly absorbed into the blood without the involvement of first line metabolism (liver and gastric system).
- Hormones are available to the body all the time (24/7).
- The pallet usually lasts for 3 to 5 months.
- You do not have to worry about applying gels or creams on daily basis.
- Researches have said that this is the best method for sexual functions and making your brain more focused and clear.
- Your body controls the release of these hormones. When you’re at rest, your body absorbs less hormones. And it absorbs more hormone during stress and exercise.
“Of all hormonal replacement modalities, only pellet therapy can provide hormonal balance 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.”
(DR. MELVIN ASHFORD)
What to expect on the day of appointment?

At Anytime Primary Care Clinic, we provide patients the opportunity to communicate with us directly. We will thoroughly discuss the procedure for bio-identical hormone replacement therapy. We understand you will still have questions before coming for consultation. So here we will explain the whole procedure for you.
Procedure of Hormone Pellet Therapy:
We will take your blood test to find the proper amount of hormones for you. You should stop taking blood thinners like ibuprofen or aspirin, at least one week before your pallet insertion. On the day of procedure, your doctor will numb the site of insertion, a small incision will be made and the pallet (about the size of grain) will be inserted. After this, the doctor will cover the site bandage. These pallets absorb best in fatty tissues so most recommended site is rear end.
This whole process will take about 30 minutes. Do not remove bandage or wet it in the first 24 hours. You can take bath after 24 hours have passed. Avoid vigorous exercises in the first week.
Consult your doctor if you feel pain and irritation even after two weeks of procedure.
A note from Anytime Primary Care Clinic:
Bioidentical hormones help people relieve their symptoms of menopause, andropause or other hormonal imbalances. The FDA (food and drug administration USA) does not authorize some of the bioidentical hormones. You should talk to your doctor about the advantages and consequences of hormone pellet therapy. Know that you do not have to live with uncomfortable symptoms of hormonal imbalance. Your provider can help you manage your symptoms.
