What are hormone pellets?

Hormone pellets are small, pressed caplets about the size of a grain of rice.

How are they administered?

The pellets contain hormones, generally either estradiol or testosterone. The pellets are implanted in the fatty tissue under local anesthesia and slowly dispense the correct hormone dosage over the next several months.

How do I get started with hormone pellet therapy?

"Good afternoon, Dr Gelhot. Thank you so much for the hormone treatment! I feel so much better. I really never expected to have this level of energy again. I am absolutely thrilled with the results!
Along with increased energy and just feeling better overall, it also seems to have improved my concentration and memory as well. I feel that I am enjoying myself more. Odd, but I never realized that hormone levels had such an impact on emotions as well. I guess in hindsight though, it does make sense.
I wish that more doctors would offer these treatments to their patients. I am sure they would be amazed at the variety of symptoms that are related to a simple hormone imbalance. Hopefully in time this treatment will become more prevalent. I know that I am definitely an advocate!"

"For over 10 years, I have been plagued by hot flashes and night sweats. Over the years, I tried every hormone replacement prescription from birth control pills to patches to oral bioidenticals to oral artificial hormones to herbal supplements to wild yam cream to worthless tablets sold in infomercials. Anything that helped at all came with a bunch of troublesome side effects, and anything that didn't have side effects didn't help even a little bit. As I left menopause, I was saddened that my sex life seemed to be over due to pain, dryness, and lack of libido. The hot flashes continued while my hair and skin got dry and I put on weight that I just couldn't seem to lose, especially around my waist.
I felt like I'd tried every therapy in the universe and was ready to give up and accept my diminished quality of life when I heard about bioidentical hormone pellet therapy. I made an appointment with Dr. Gelhot. After a long discussion in which she explained absolutely EVERYTHING about the treatment and what I could expect from it, we got started.
It's been about a year and a half since I had my first pellet implantation, and my life has spun back 180 degrees. My energy and good moods have returned. My libido is back, and romance is once again a major part of my marriage. My waistline has slimmed back down and regained the definition it had lost. My skin has lost the crepe-like dryness it was getting, especially around my eyes and on my neck, but all over, really. Maybe best of all, I'm free of those killer hot flashes, and I'm sleeping through the night because the night sweats are gone. I feel as if Dr. Gelhot has given me back the capacity to live a full, active, joyful life."
