Pellet Therapy

What is Pellet Therapy?

Hormonal Health’s BHRT Pellet Therapy uses natural hormones which are derived from Yam’s to replicate the body’s normal hormonal levels. Our patients have found our bio-identical hormone pellet therapy to be extremely effective. Pellets are implants which are placed under the skin, consistently releasing small, doses of hormones providing the most optimal hormone replacement therapy available.

Unlike typical oral and transdermal forms of therapy – which produce “roller coaster” hormone levels, resulting in mood and energy fluctuations for the patient Hormonal Health of KC Pellet Therapy, is the only method of hormone replacement therapy that provides our patients with sustained hormone levels throughout the day, for 3 to 6 months.


What are Pellets?

Pellets are made from a natural plant source of either estradiol or testosterone. The hormones are pressed or fused into very small solid cylinders. Pellets are larger than a grain of rice and smaller than a “Tic Tac‟. Pellets are placed in the fatty tissue underneath the skin and act as if an ovary or testicle is present. The implantation procedure is easily performed in our office. In the United States, the majority of pellets are compounded by a professional compounding pharmacist using strict federal guidelines and delivered in sterile glass vials.


BHRT Fused Pellet Implant History

Hormone replacement using pellet implants has been used with great success in the U.S., Europe, and Australia since 1938. In fact, pellet implants were a very popular mode of hormone administration in the U.S. until the 1970s, when many oral and topical commercial products were developed. While the demand for pellets diminished in the U.S., pellet implants continued to be a very popular mode of hormone administration throughout Europe and Australia. In the last 10 to 15 years, due to advancements made in processing as well as a better understanding of the benefits of fused pellet implants for hormone replacement, this mode of hormone administration has grown in popularity in the U.S.
