Female bioidentical hormone replacement therapy is a standard solution for coping with the side effects of aging and hormone imbalances. Hormone replacement therapy can help those suffering from unbalanced hormones due to aging or other factors. Bioidentical hormones are identical in structure to human hormones. Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy can come in oral, topical, and pellet varieties.
Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy pellets consist of custom compounded bioidentical hormones. The pellets include hormones with the same chemical structure as the hormones the body produces. The hormones found in pellets are estradiol and testosterone. Treatment may include either or both of these hormones depending on your symptoms and blood test results. The pellets intend to raise your hormones to ideal levels. The pellets are injected under the skin by a specialist and gradually absorbed into the body.
Any woman experiencing hot flashes, vaginal dryness or changes in mood may be a good candidate for pellet therapy. Other women who may benefit from pellet therapy are those who have experienced decreased libido or sex drive. Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy can address these issues directly through multiple sessions.
Symptoms of those who can find significant improvement with bioidentical hormone replacement therapy include:
- Weight gain or difficulty losing weight
- Excessive sweating or hot flashes
- Decreased sex drive or discomfort during intercourse
- Hair loss or thinning
- Vaginal dryness
- Fatigue or insomnia
- Acne or skin problems
Many patients see improvement in symptoms after 4-6 weeks. It is recommended that patients receive 2 hormonal pellet treatments, four months apart, in order to see the full benefit, and whether to continue. However, the length of treatment is always at the discretion of the patient.
After four to six weeks, the endocrine system begins to respond to the therapy. After six months, patients should notice the full effects of bioidentical hormone replacement therapy. Some patients may not see the benefits of bioidentical hormone replacement therapy until the second therapy session.
