Hormone therapy is often used to help replace the hormones your body is no longer making. The loss of certain hormones can give you an increased risk for premature ovary failure, osteoporosis, heart disease, colon cancer, Alzheimer's disease, tooth loss, impaired vision, Parkinson's disease and diabetes. The Women's Care Center at Providence Medical Group takes a holistic approach to hormone therapy and may prescribe a natural hormone replacement therapy using hormone pellet implants.
Hormone Pellet Implants
Pellets are used in women to lessen the symptoms of menopause or in some cases, peri-menopause. Estrogen therapy by implantation of pellets is a safe and effective method of hormone therapy. Pellets deliver consistent, healthy levels of hormones for 3-4 months. They avoid the fluctuations, or ups and downs, of hormone levels seen with other methods of delivery. Estrogen delivered by subcutaneous pellets, maintains the normal ratio of estradiol to estrone. This is important for optimal health and disease prevention. Pellets do not increase the risk of blood clots like conventional or synthetic hormone replacement therapy.
Pellet implantation has consistently proven more effective than oral, intrmuscular, and topical hormone therapy with regard to bone density, sexual function, mood and cognitive function, urinary and vaginal complaints, breast health, lipid profilesm hormone ratios and metabolites. Pellets have been show to be superior for relief of menopausal symptoms, maintenance of bone density, restoration of sleep patterns, and imporvement in sex drive, libido, sexual response and performance.
