All About Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy Pellets

For many women, hormonal imbalances can cause a variety of negative side effects that interfere with their day-to-day lives. Physical symptoms of a hormonal imbalance include hot flashes, vaginal dryness, and constant fatigue. Meanwhile, some women may experience psychological symptoms such as mood swings, reduced sex drive, depression, anxiety, and memory loss. 

Women who are experiencing perimenopause, menopause, adrenal fatigue, or thyroid disorders are most likely to suffer from hormonal imbalances. If you are struggling with distressing symptoms, it is important to investigate treatment options that may provide relief and improve your quality of life.

Continue reading to discover how bioidentical hormone replacement therapy pellets can help to naturally balance your hormones. 

What is Bioidentical Hormone Pellet Therapy?

Bioidentical hormone therapy is a technique that aims to restore balance using natural hormones that are chemically identical to the ones already found in your body. Since the hormones match your body’s natural receptors, they are the safest and most effective treatment for helping to revitalize your body and restore balance.

One way this therapy can be administered is via bioidentical hormone replacement therapy pellets. These pellets are made from plants and are a substitute to the hormones already produced by the human body. Once inserted into the body, the pellet metabolizes naturally, absorbing into your bloodstream. This method allows for a steady stream of the needed hormone to release over the course of several months. Many women prefer this method of bioidentical hormone therapy since it is convenient, long-lasting, and requires minimal effort. 

How are Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy Pellets Administered?

At Aqua Vitality, bioidentical hormone replacement pellets are administered in our office with a simple procedure. After applying an anesthetic, your physician will make a tiny incision in the skin near the upper hip. Since the pellet is similar to the size of a grain of rice, it is inserted painlessly and no stitches are needed. The entire procedure takes less than an hour, and the beneficial effects of the bioidentical hormone replacement therapy pellets can be felt soon after.

What are the Benefits of Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy Pellets?

As a result of bioidentical hormone pellet therapy, you may experience the following benefits. 

1. Weight Loss

Hormones play an important role in regulating one’s metabolism, appetite, and energy levels. As a result, hormonal imbalances can cause the metabolism to slow down, trigger sugar cravings, and even lead to fatigue. Therefore, after balancing their hormones, many women experience weight loss due to an increase in energy and a heightened metabolism. 

2. Prevents Depression and Anxiety

A hormonal imbalance can manifest as mental health issues since hormones help to regulate the body’s stress response. Therefore, those suffering a hormonal imbalance commonly experience depression, anxiety, mood swings, confusion, and brain fog. Following bioidentical hormone therapy, patients report having increased mental clarity, a better memory, and an overall more stable mood. 

3. Increases Libido

In most cases of women experiencing low libido, a hormonal imbalance is to blame. In fact, a hormonal imbalance can even lead to vaginal dryness and trouble reaching orgasm. Luckily, bioidentical hormone pellet therapy will help to restore your sexual pleasure in no time so you can enjoy a more fulfilling sex life

4. Reduces Hot Flashes and Night Sweats

Frequently dealing with hot flashes and night sweats can disrupt your day and interfere with your sleep. If these symptoms are decreasing your quality of life, bioidentical hormone therapy could help provide you with relief. 

5. Restores Bone Strength

As women age and enter menopause, estrogen levels in the body drop, resulting in bone loss. However, scientific research suggests that hormone replacement therapy can strengthen bone density and reduce one’s risk of developing osteoporosis.
