What are pellet implants?
Hormone pellets are tiny cylinders that are inserted into numbed area of subcutaneous fat in the hip areas. This dosage form closely mimics how your body releases hormones. The pellets can last 3-6 months depending on the individual.
Pellets are made using Estradiol or Testosterone. Dosing is determined based on lab results, medical history, and reported symptoms.
The process includes:
1. An initial consultation with me before or after labs are done.
2. Getting your lab tests done.
3. Reviewing labs in detail with me.
4. Creating a treatment plan.
5. Repeating labs in 6-8 weeks after starting your replacement therapy to assist in dosage adjustments.
