Testosterone Pellet Therapy for Women
Testosterone Pellet Therapy is a hormone replacement therapy for women. It is shown to be effective against menstrual symptoms, migraines, low libido, low energy, and general anxiety.
The testosterone pellets are the size of a grain and are implanted by our doctors under the skin. These pellets consist of crystallized testosterone which delivers this hormone in a steady low dose for up to six months at a time.
How Does Testosterone Pellet Therapy Help Women?
The use of testosterone pellets helps in relieving menstrual headaches or migraines. It improves PMS symptoms, increases energy, improves restorative sleep and libido drive, as well as reduces depression and anxiety. Subdermal testosterone has been used frequently in pre-menopausal women. Pellets are superior to topical and oral hormone therapy in terms of providing relief for menopausal symptoms.
- Testosterone Pellet Therapy can be used to treat uterine fibroids and endometriosis without affecting the menstrual cycle.
- It improves insomnia and reduces vaginal dryness, pain, palpitations, and headaches.
- It reduces hot flashes and also improves loss of libido as well as lipid and cardiac profiles.
- It can be used to successfully treat severe syndromes of pre-menstruation which are otherwise unresponsive to other therapy forms, without creating many common adverse effects.
- Hormone Therapy by pellet implantation has been successfully used in Australia, Europe, and the United States since 1938 and was found to have superior effects compared to the other methods of hormone therapy.
- Pellets help in delivering a consistent and physiologic level of hormone while avoiding hormone level fluctuations as seen in other delivery methods.
- Estrogen that is delivered by subcutaneous implants helps in maintaining the normal estradiol and estrone ratio.
- Testosterone that is delivered through subcutaneous pellet implants is cardiac protective, unlike synthetic and oral methyl-testosterone.
- Our healthcare professionals consider factors such as the Body Mass Index (BMI) and the level of hormones, and work on providing appropriate hormone doses accordingly
- In order to insert hormone pellets, the healthcare professional would numb the skin, and create a small incision, usually at the hip area. The required amount of hormone pellet would then be inserted underneath the skin.
- The incision would be closed through a stitch or Steri-strips, or both. The patient would be required to follow the instructions of the healthcare professional after the procedure.
- Patients having Steri-strips might be able to remove them within five to seven days.The pellets would help in providing a constant hormone supply for at least three months
