If you are dealing with the side effects of hormone imbalances, then pellet hormone therapy could be right for you. Pellet hormone therapy helps hormone levels return to normal, healthy levels, managing such problematic issues as energy loss, migraines, and loss of libido. Here at Rocky Creek Family Medicine, Dr. Deirdre McMullen, Dr. Tiyashi Choudhury, and FNP Hillary Spears are your medical professionals for pellet hormone therapy in Missouri City.

How Pellet Hormone Therapy Helps

Pellet hormone therapy can help improve various symptoms associated with a hormone imbalance. When hormone levels are too high or too low, some of the symptoms that can develop include:

  • Decreased energy
  • Poor Concentration
  • Problems with memory
  • Anxiety or depression
  • Headaches and migraines
  • Decreased bone density
  • Loss of libido
  • Urinary urgency

In addition to experiencing any of the above symptoms, women dealing with a hormone imbalance can also experience vaginal dryness and hot flashes. Fortunately, pellet hormone therapy can help diminish or eliminate many of the symptoms associated with imbalanced hormone levels.

How Pellet Hormone Therapy Works

Pellet hormone therapy is as simple as having a tiny rice-sized pellet inserted under the skin once every few months. After placement, this pellet gradually releases an appropriate amount of hormones overtime to correct any imbalance. On average, most patients begin experiencing relief from the symptoms of their hormone imbalance in about three weeks. Some experience relief sooner, while it could take longer for others. Pellets should be replaced every three to four months for women and every five to six months for men.

The pellet is usually inserted under the skin in the hip or buttocks area. Prior to inserting the pellet, local anesthesia is used to numb the area, thus ensuring a pain-free procedure. Within one to three days, the pellet will begin working its way into your system, providing relief for your uncomfortable symptoms.
