Frequently Asked Questions
Bioidentical hormone pellets are subcutaneous implants “pellets” that are inserted into the subcutaneous fat of the gluteal area. They are made of custom-compounded hormones and natural binders to hold them together. Pellets come in both the forms of testosterone and estradiol or estrogen. The hormones are compounded in pharmacies in the United States that are licensed FDA outsourcing centers and are held to strict standards. Every batch of hormones is tested for consistency, purity and comes with our guarantee that our patients are being provided the best possible therapy to help their hormone optimization. The pelleting procedure is minimally invasive and completed within 15 minutes. There is no surgery or stitches involved in this process. Benefits of pellet therapy vs. other delivery methods for bioidentical hormone replacement therapy include:
- Consistent delivery of medication, which means less symptom fluctuation and better results.
- Bypasses the liver, which means less risk of side effects to the patient.
- Eliminates the use of messy creams and gels.
- No risk of transference to family members or pets.
Bioidentical pellet therapy procedures are done 2-3 times per year for men, and 3-4 times per year for women. Here at WePellet, we include a full program for complete hormone optimization. Better Sleep, Better Sex, Better Health.
In your body, hormones control almost all of even your most basic bodily functions. They serve as the internal communication system between cells throughout the body. They coordinate everything from digestion and growth to your appetite, immune function, mood, and libido. So, when your hormones are out of balance, even just slightly, it can have a significant impact on your overall health, well-being, and vitality. Bioidentical hormones are hormones made from plants that are chemically identical to those the human body produces. Estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone are those most commonly used in treatment. Bioidentical hormones come in various forms, including creams, pills, troches, injections, and pellets. Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy, or BHRT for short, helps with many symptoms that you may experience due to hormone imbalance. Some of these symptoms include:
- hot flashes
- night sweats
- mood changes
- memory loss
- weight gain
- sleep issues
- erectile dysfunction
- loss of interest in sex or pain during sex
In addition to helping with symptoms, hormone replacement therapy may also reduce your risk for diabetes, osteopenia and osteoporosis, heart disease and heart disease-related illnesses, and cataracts. There’s even some research that it has been shown to help improve skin thickness, hydration, and elasticity, and even reduce the appearance of wrinkles. Testosterone therapy has also been shown to improve overall body composition and recovery from exercise.
Peptides have many different uses and indications, but most commonly are used to help to build muscle and burn fat, improve energy, improve libido and sexual function, and reduce inflammation. The most commonly prescribed peptides work by naturally boosting growth hormones. One of the most common of these peptides is Sermorelin, a daily injection that increases IGF-1, a precursor of human growth hormone. Sermorelin along with a healthy diet and exercise helps to reduce fat in the body, add muscle, and change overall body composition. A once-daily painless injection can also assist in muscle recovery, muscle fatigue, joint pain, and injury, and can even suppress appetite.
Peptide therapy is successful on its own but is often most successful when combined with bioidentical hormone replacement therapy, such as pellets.
