Bioidentical Hormone Pellet Therapy
Bioidentical hormone pellet therapy is a well-researched method of delivering hormones to your body. Bioidentical hormone doctor, Martin Bloom, M.D. in the Miami Metropolitan Area offers this method by painlessly inserting a small bioidentical hormone pellet, about the size of a grain of rice, under your skin. The procedure is less painful than having your blood drawn. The hormones in the pellets provided by Dr. Bloom are bioidentical, which means that they are the exact molecular match to the hormones produced by your body. These bioidentical hormone pellets typically consist of either estradiol or testosterone.
Each pellet is about the size of a grain of rice and is inserted into an incision made to the upper hip area during a simple, in-office procedure. Following insertion, the body slowly begins to metabolize the pellet, releasing a steady, natural dose of hormones—much like the body does under normal function—over the course of three to six months. The duration depends on how quickly the body metabolizes the pellet.
Dr. Bloom uses hormone pellets that are manufactured by special compounding pharmacies. The ingredients, estradiol or testosterone, are pharmaceutical grade quality.Dr. Bloom’s bioidentical hormone pellet therapy can be used to relieve the symptoms of menopause, perimenopause and andropause, to name just a few hormone related conditions that respond well to Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy. Bioidentical hormone pellet therapy slowly releases hormones into the bloodstream – similar to the way hormones are released by the ovaries and testes.
- Pellet Therapy for Men
For men, testosterone therapy is available in pellet form. Testosterone pellet therapy offers advantages for men who prefer not to endure the pain sometimes associated with testosterone injections or worries of transference linked to creams. Pellet therapy delivers a slow release of testosterone over the course of three to six months, offering men the numerous benefits of testosterone therapy, including:
- Improved libido and sexual performance
- Increased muscle mass
- Reduced fat mass
- Stabilized moods
- Enhanced focus and drive
- Lowered risk of certain diseases
- Pellet Therapy for Women
Women may choose pellet therapy for testosterone replacement therapies. And, much like with men, women can enjoy the natural-release formulation of the pellet, plus all the benefits of the respective hormone therapies. Estradiol and testosterone are often valuable treatment options for women suffering from menopausal symptoms. However, some women may pursue testosterone therapy to experience these benefits:
- Improved sex drive and sexual sensation
- Improved weight management
- Reduced fat mass
- Increased lean body mass
- Increased focus and ambition
- Stabilized moods
- Improved bone density
Benefits of Pellet Therapy
Pellet therapy offers many of the same benefits as other BHRT delivery methods, but it has some distinct features that set it apart, including:
- Convenient, no hassle dosing.
The pellet is inserted and goes to work – no need to remember to take a pill or swipe on a cream. And, since the pellet is slowly metabolized by the body over time, patients don’t have to worry if they took too much or not enough.
- Minimizes fluctuations between treatments.
Pellets are designed to work with each patient’s body chemistry, releasing a natural dose of hormones throughout the treatment cycle.
- The process is quick, like having your blood drawn.
Local anesthetic is applied to the injection site, a tiny incision is made in the skin and the pellet is put into place by trained medical staff and sealed with a piece of medical tape. There is no need for stitches or fear of scarring.
