Hormone Pellet Therapy Q & A

Why do I need hormone pellet therapy?

Hormone pellet therapy, also known as bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT), is a highly effective and natural way to stabilize your hormone levels. Your OB/GYN may recommend hormone pellet therapy if you have:

  • Hot flashes
  • Mood swings
  • Weight gain
  • Poor concentration
  • Memory problems 
  • Urinary incontinence
  • Anxiety or depression
  • Pain during intercourse

While hormone pellet therapy is often used for women struggling with menopause symptoms, it may also be ideal if you have metabolic syndrome, osteoporosis, or thyroid issues. 

What are the benefits of hormone pellet therapy?

Contemporary Women's Care is proud to offer BioTE hormone pellet therapy. This highly advanced treatment involves implanting tiny pellets under your skin on your hip. These pellets contain hormones that come from natural sources, like yams, so they mimic the hormones your body produces.

Bioidentical hormone pellet therapy is beneficial because:

  • Your results are consistent (no hormonal surges)
  • You experience minimal (if any) side effects
  • You have faster results

BioTE hormone pellet therapy is also beneficial because it’s low maintenance. All you have to do is come to Contemporary Women's Care as recommended to check your hormone levels and have new pellets implanted. No pills. No creams. And no injections to worry about. 

How long does hormone pellet therapy last?

BioTE hormone pellet therapy is very long-lasting. You should experience optimal results for as long as 3-4 months, sometimes even longer. The team at Contemporary Women's Care schedules you for follow-up exams as recommended by your OB/GYN to run labs and check your hormone levels.

Once your hormone pellets start wearing off, you can have another procedure to have new pellets implanted. The process takes about 10 minutes. 

Is it painful to get hormone pellets?

Your OB/GYN at Contemporary Women's Care ensures the treatment area is numb before implanting your hormone pellets. Aside from a minor prick or slight burning from the numbing injection, you shouldn’t feel any discomfort.
