5 Reasons to Consider Hormone Pellet Therapy

 5 Reasons to Consider Hormone Pellet Therapy

You may not be surprised to learn that eight out of 10 women have hot flashes and night sweats during menopause.

But did you know that most women deal with moderate to severe symptoms, and, on average, these symptoms last seven to ten years?

That’s a long struggle, especially since you never know when a hot flash will disrupt your day or cause insomnia.

Chetanna Okasi, MD, at Women’s Wellness MD, has a safe, effective solution for all your menopause challenges: bioidentical hormone replacement therapy.

As skilled menopause and hormone therapy specialists, our team offers pellet therapy, a natural hormone replacement that precisely restores hormone imbalances by delivering a precise, steady dose.

These are the top five reasons women consider hormone pellet therapy:

1. You prefer long-lasting treatment without bothersome pills, creams, or injections

Pellet therapy delivers the precise hormone and dose you need to restore balance. Your hormones get pressed into a tiny pellet that we insert under your skin.

The pellet lasts at least several months. During that time, it slowly releases a steady supply of hormones.

You gain two incredible benefits from pellet therapy. First, you don’t need to worry about taking daily pills, remembering monthly injections, or applying messy topical creams.

And second, you avoid the extreme highs and lows from other hormone sources. When you use pills, creams, or injections, your body gets an initial surge of hormones. Then, your hormone levels drop as the dose wears off, an unwanted fluctuation you avoid with pellets.

2. You prefer natural treatment with bioidentical hormones

The pellets contain bioidentical hormones made from safe, natural products like yams. Unlike synthetic hormone medications, bioidentical hormones have the same molecular structure as your body’s natural hormones.

As a result, your treatment produces the same benefits as your original hormones while significantly lowering your risk of side effects.

3. You need relief from menopause symptoms

Beyond the benefits of pellets and bioidentical hormones, the biggest reason to consider hormone replacement therapy (HRT) is to eliminate the many symptoms of menopause.

As pellet therapy restores natural hormone levels, the treatment puts an end to:

Bioidentical hormones also treat other menopause-related problems, which brings us to the last two reasons for considering pellet therapy.

4. You are anxious to restore your sex life

You may hear other women mention they lost their sex drive during menopause, and for many, the desire doesn’t return.

But chances are you haven’t heard about another devastating problem that arises when your body stops producing estrogen, and that’s painful intercourse.

Estrogen is essential for keeping the vaginal tissues healthy. Menopause leads to vaginal dryness, thinning, and loss of lubrication, a combination of problems that makes sex painful.

Regaining hormonal balance with pellet therapy restores your vaginal lining, allowing you to enjoy a healthy sex life once again.

5. You want to preserve strong bones

Estrogen has many crucial roles outside your reproductive system, including triggering new bone growth and preventing bone loss. 

Optimal hormone levels are essential for maintaining strong bones and preventing osteoporosis (weak, brittle bones due to excessive bone loss).

Though pellet therapy prevents other health conditions associated with low estrogen, we’re highlighting osteoporosis because women lose a substantial amount of bone in the first few years after menopause.

This dramatic bone loss increases their risk of osteoporosis and fractures in the spine (the most common site of osteoporotic compression fractures), hip, and wrist.
