Our bio-identical hormone replacement therapy is in the form of subcutaneous pellets. These pellets contain both estrogen pellets and/or testosterone pellets. We insert these pellets painlessly into the hip, flank, or abdomen areas during an in-office visit after diagnostic labs have been completed to asses the level of hormone insufficiency. Each patient is different and so each dose will be different as well.
We constantly here from our patients that they feel better on our pellets than they do when they get pellets from one of the many practitioners getting pellets from BioTE. This has to do with many things and mostly due to using the Rouzier Method and applying specific techniques that are unique to The Wellness Firm.
Pellets tend to last 3-5 months. Many factors come into play here due to age, weight, activity level, stress, etc…
What is important to know about optimizing hormones is that it is a process and with some the process can take 2 or 3 insertions to get you where you need to be. Bottom line, if you are not feeling it, call us ASAP. We specialize in getting you feeling great and have a lot of tools at our disposal.
Testosterone Pellets are about the size of a grain of rice and made by compressing pure testosterone powder mixed with stearic acid or cholesterol and/or a trace amount of triamcinolone into the shape of a cylinder.
