Today’s women prefer natural hormones. In a survey of a nationally representative sample of 1,009 women aged 40 and older, 83% said they would prefer to use hormones that are similar to their own body’s hormones. Bio-identical hormones include estrone (El), estradiol (E2), estriol (E3), progesterone, testosterone, dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA), and pregnenolone.
The goals of BHRT therapy include:
Alleviating the symptoms caused by the natural decrease in production of hormones by the body
Giving the protective benefits which were originally provided by naturally occurring hormones
Re-establishing a hormone balance
Every woman is unique. That is why the Pharmacy Solutions compounding specialists work together with patients and prescribers to provide customized BHRT in the best strength and dosage form to meet each woman’s specific needs and minimize the potential for side effects.
Pellets deliver consistent, healthy levels of hormones for 3-6 months, depending on the dosage. They avoid the ﬂuctuations, or ups and downs, of hormone levels seen with every other method of delivery. It is the ﬂuctuation in hormones that causes many of the unwanted side effects and symptoms a patient experiences. Pellets do not increase the risk of blood clots like conventional or synthetic hormone replacement therapy.
In studies, when compared to conventional hormone replacement therapy, pellets have been shown to be superior for relief of menopausal symptoms, maintenance of bone density, restoration of sleep patterns, improved sex drive, libido, sexual response and performance. Even patients who have failed other types of hormone therapy have a very high success rate with pellets. In addition, there is no other method of hormone delivery that is as convenient for the patient as pellets.
Pellets are the most natural way to deliver bio-identical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) in both men and women. Pellets deliver a consistent release of hormone levels over an extended period of time, typically 3–6 months. This means only 2–4 visits to the medical office per year! The procedure typically takes 10–15 minutes, and most people are comfortable resuming daily activities immediately after their appointment. Best of all, your dosage is customized based on your labs.
