Bioidentical Hormone Pellets Q & A

What are hormones?

Hormones play several important roles to keep your body functioning at optimal levels, including regulating your sleep, metabolism, and reproduction. As you age, your body starts to slow down its production processes for hormones like estrogen and progesterone. Low levels of these hormones can cause a wide range of symptoms and affect your quality of life. 

What are bioidentical hormone pellets?

Bioidentical hormone pellets use synthetic hormones derived from sources like plants or animal products to replace your natural hormones. These supplemental hormones are different from the ones used in traditional hormone replacement therapy (HRT) because they mimic the molecular structure of the hormones your body produces. 

Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) is not only an effective way to balance your hormones to improve well-being, it’s also a more natural way to treat hormone imbalances without the side effects that other lab-created hormones may cause. 

What issues can be treated with bioidentical hormone pellets?

Bioidentical hormone pellets can be used to treat several hormone-related issues, including:

  • Mood swings and irritability
  • Abnormal or irregular periods
  • Vaginal dryness or painful intercourse
  • Low libido (sex drive) 
  • Thinning hair
  • Weight gain
  • Sleep problems including insomnia
  • Problems concentrating and focusing (sometimes called “brain fog”)


BHRT may also help with conditions such as polycystic ovary syndrome, commonly known as PCOS. 

What can I expect with bioidentical hormone pellets?

At My OBGYN, your specialist tailors bioidentical hormone replacement therapy to your individual needs, relying on lab tests to determine the best dose. After a consultation discussing your symptoms, they may recommend bioidentical hormone pellets to help you enjoy better wellness. 

While hormone replacement can come in different forms, including pills, creams, patches, gels, sprays, and even vaginal rings, My OBGYN offers treatment in pellet form. 

Pellets are very small, about the size of a grain of rice. They’re inserted into the skin of your upper buttocks or hip and release hormones at a steady rate over a period of three to four months. If you find treatment beneficial, you may consider replacing your pellet after four months. 

Hormone imbalances can affect your ability to live life to the fullest. To schedule your consultation for bioidentical hormone pellets, call My OBGYN or request an appointment online today.
