Women’s Hormone Pellet VS Other Hormone Replacement Therapy
Women’s Hormone Pellet Therapy, offered by Sugar Land Hormones & Wellness Center, is a safe and effective procedure that involves inserting small pellets under the skin. This treatment provides a steady release of hormones and can improve symptoms associated with menopause, including hot flashes, mood swings, and low libido. Other hormone replacement therapy offered by Sweetwater OB GYN includes pills, patches, and creams that can alleviate menopausal symptoms. However, these methods may not sustain the release of hormones like Women’s Hormone Pellet Therapy. Consult with your healthcare provider to determine which option is best for you.
Women’s Hormone Pellet Therapy Purpose
The purpose of hormone pellet therapy is to relieve symptoms associated with declining hormone levels, such as hot flashes and night sweats, vaginal dryness and painful intercourse, low libido, anxiety and depression, insomnia, lack of energy, poor concentration, and fatigue. It is used to prevent osteoporosis, mental decline, and other age-related conditions. Women around menopause can benefit, but even in the late 20s and 30s, a woman’s hormones, especially testosterone, can decline. Ideal hormone levels in the body may help reduce the risk factors associated with heart disease and improve the overall quality of life.
Women’s Hormone Pellet Therapy Procedure
The procedure for hormone pellet therapy for women starts with an evaluation by a licensed medical practitioner who will take your medical history, perform tests (such as blood tests) to determine which hormones are imbalanced or lacking in your body, and then prescribe a custom plan tailored specifically to you that includes a unique dosage for you. Afterward, using local anesthesia, your doctor will implant small hormone pellets under the skin, either on your glutes or flank. They will slowly release hormones into the bloodstream until they are dissolved or replaced with new ones.
Preparing for Women’s Hormone Pellet Treatment
Before starting hormone pellet therapy, discuss any existing health conditions with your doctor, who can advise you on whether this treatment is safe for you, given your circumstances. Your doctor should inform you about how long each treatment session lasts, what kind of follow-up care might be required after each session ends, and how often you should come back for checkups throughout treatment so that they can monitor your progress over time. We recommend avoiding baby aspirin, green tea, and fish oils three days before insertion.
Benefits of Women’s Hormone Pellet Treatment
There are many benefits associated with hormone pellet therapy, including improved mental clarity; increased sex drive; increased energy and vitality; better sleep; less irritability; improved muscle tone; lower rates of anxiety/depression; fewer hot flashes/night sweats; increased energy levels; decreased inflammation; improved metabolism leading to weight loss when combined with diet/exercise regimen; reduced risk factors associated with heart disease; prevention/treatment of osteoporosis. Compared to traditional hormone replacement therapies like pills or patches, these benefits have been reported, which don’t provide consistent delivery over long periods, resulting in inconsistent outcomes.
Risks of Women’s Hormone Pellet Treatment
Though generally considered safe when properly administered by trained medical professionals, some risks are still associated with hormone pellet treatments. Your provider will review this in detail before insertion.
Maintaining Your Health After Women’s Hormone Pellet Treatment
Once you have started receiving regular hormone pellet treatments, you must continue monitoring your health closely afterward since most treatments include follow-up visits every 4-6 months, depending on each patient’s individual needs/situations, etc. Also make sure that during this period maintain healthy lifestyle habits like eating nutritious, balanced diets rich in whole grains, fruits, veggies, lean proteins, legumes, seeds, and nuts, etc., exercising regularly, getting plenty of restful sleep, avoiding smoking, drinking caffeine excessively, etc., so that your body can best reap all benefits from ongoing treatments while minimizing overall health-related risks down the road.
The History of Hormone Pellet Therapy For Women
Women’s Hormone pellet therapy has been used for decades to help women manage symptoms of menopause and other hormonal imbalances. As early as the 1930s, women were given injectable hormones to help alleviate hot flashes and other symptoms. Oral hormone therapy became prevalent in the 1960s and 1970s, and synthetic hormones were developed.
However, concerns about the long-term safety of hormone therapy emerged in the early 2000s after the Women’s Health Initiative (WHI) study linked certain types of hormone therapy to an increased risk of breast cancer, heart disease, and stroke. This led to a decline in the use of hormone therapy and a search for safer, more effective options.
HPT was developed as an alternative to traditional hormone therapy in the 1980s. The pellets used in HPT are made from natural hormones, such as estradiol and testosterone, which are bioidentical to the hormones produced by the body. This means they are less likely to cause adverse effects than the synthetic hormones used in traditional hormone therapy.
Clinical trials and scientific research
Clinical trials of HPT have shown it to be an effective treatment option for women with hormonal imbalances. In a 2013 study published in the Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology, HPT significantly reduced symptoms of menopause, such as hot flashes, night sweats, and sleep disturbances. Another study published in the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism found that HPT effectively reduced bone loss in women with low estrogen levels.
Scientific research also suggests that HPT has a lower risk of adverse effects than traditional hormone therapy. According to a study published in Obstetrics and Gynecology, women who received HPT experienced less breast tenderness, bloating, and mood swings than those who received traditional hormone therapy.
