Frequently Asked Questions About Pellet Hormone Therapy
Are Pellets New?
Many people get concerned that they are not familiar with pellets. While that may be true, they are commonly used throughout Australia and Europe. They are not marketed or patented at this time within the U.S. They were used in the United States in the 1940’s up through the 1970’s though. At the tail end of the 1970’s the use of pellets was supplanted by patented oral hormones.These orally administered estrogen and testosterone hormones are chemically altered varieties that are heavily marketed within the United States. There are conventional pharmaceutical companies that manufacture pellets, with a good degree of research from Europe and Australia about pellet use.Though, it turns out that the cannon of research on hormone pellets is seeing a steady increase in the United States. In particular, there is a new-found focus on pellet use for breast cancer patient populations. As of now, there are even clinics specializing in administering pellet hormone therapy.
How Are Pellets Used?
Under local anesthesia, the doctor makes a tiny incision on the upper buttocks. Then they insert the hormone pellets and tape the incision shut. It is very important to locate a medical practitioner who has plenty of experience both determining the right dosages for clients as well as having a lot of pellet insertion experience as well.
What Are Hormone Pellets?
The hormone pellets are manufactured from testosterone pressed and fused into cylinders. They are just a smidge larger than one single grain of rice, and small enough to fit inside a tiny incision. If you are wondering how doctors are able to provide hormone pellets in the United States, the answer is that compounding pharmacists create them. There are FDA-approved 75 milligram testosterone pellets also manufactured.
Why Should You Use Pellets?
Through the use of the hormone pellets, there is no guessing or remembering to take any pills at the exact same time today as yesterday. The pellets, meanwhile, deliver the same dose for up to 5 months for the female population and up to 6 months for males.This prevents spikes and drops in the necessary hormone levels that are typically experienced with other delivery methods. It’s an important matter to get the dosing just right to halt disease while creating an environment that fosters optimal health. Another excellent reason to consider pellets is that they do not run the risk of fostering the formation of blood clots that are seen in other hormone therapy delivery methods.Studies that compare pellets to conventional hormone replacement prove pellets are superior in relieving the symptoms of menopause, while maintaining bone density.

What Can I Do After Insertion Of Pellets?
Actually, let’s focus on what should be avoided. For the first 2 days after insertion of the pellets, avoid exercise. In men, do not exercise for one week afterward. Otherwise, the pellet may get pushed out of the body. Then you would have to go through the process again.For diabetics and former joint replacement patients, antibiotics may be prescribed as a prophylactic. It’s usually considered a clean and non-harmful procedure, so in most cases there may be no antibiotic prescribed before hand.
My Doctor Says There’s No Evidence To Support Pellets
Here’s the truth. Sometimes a doctor saves face; meaning, if you catch them off guard with information that they are unfamiliar with they may assume there is no data to support pellets. That’s not really the case, of course. Pellets are more effective without having the risk of blood clots and stroke.If you are particularly concerned about effectiveness and relief from low testosterone without risks of stroke, be more insistent. If you receive too much flak, you will want to go elsewhere, or get a referral to a physician who specializes in insertion of pellets. You do not want to go to the doctor who does not do the procedure. If they are not familiar with pellets, it is a flag to look at finding a doctor who understands what is called the efficacy and evidence for use of pellets. After all, we are talking about a simple procedure that can save lives (and sanity) in the process.
People feel like themselves after the insertion of pellets. They actually get sleep, have energy, and just experience a sense of well being, relief and happiness. They look better too, as their lean muscle mass and bone density return, while fat tissue falls. Even skin and hair improve as well.
Is Pellet Therapy As Dangerous As Conventional Therapy For Breast Cancer?

Androgens enhance Tamoxifenâ therapy for breast cancer patients.
Do Men Really Benefit From Testosterone Hormone Therapy?

They may not start to “feel it” or experience the effects of low testosterone, though, until they are well into middle age (mid-40’s to mid-50′). Others do not feel it until their 60’s through even their 80’s It’s important to be tested to find out if there is a testosterone deficiency because it can cause serious illness.
