Hormone Pellet Therapy

Hormone Pellet Therapy

Disease prevention, and overall good health, are important to us all, especially as we age. And one of the main ways our bodies fight diseases and overall bodily health is through balanced hormones. The fact is, after the age of 30, we’ll all lose between three and 10 percent of our hormones in our bodies each year we age, which means aging makes us more susceptible to myriad diseases and ailments.

The good news is there are ways to balance the hormones, in effect keeping your body armed and ready for the aging process. Using what has become known as hormone replacement therapy (HRT) or bioidentical hormone replacement thearpy (BHRT), we can monitor your hormone levels and balance them using supplemental hormone therapies. One of the most trusted and tried therapies available today is the use of hormone pellet therapy.

The pellets are introduced into the body via a specific injection technique that allows them to slowly dissolve into the bloodstream. This allows the body to take only what it needs when it needs it, which is the key differentiation with pellet therapy in comparison to basic testosterone or estradiol injections. Read the FAQs below for more information or schedule your initial HRT consult today to learn how testosterone pellets in Chicago can help you effectively fight the effects of aging.

Frequently Asked Questions


Hormone pellets are made of pure human-identical sex hormones, estradiol or testosterone, that are derived from natural plant sources (naturally occurring, so they include no artificially created materials). You may have also heard hormone pellets referred to as “bio-identical” hormones.  The hormones are pressed or fused into very small solid cylinders called pellets, ranging in size from a grain of rice to that of a Tic Tac. In the US, the best pellets are made and customized for patients’ needs by certified  specialized compounding pharmacists under stringent guidelines and delivered to us sealed in sterile glass vials.

Pellets are inserted in the fatty layer under the skin of the upper buttocks, abdomen and hip area using special instruments that have been specifically engineered for hormone pellet insertion. The procedure itself takes no more than five minutes and is painless because your medical provider will use a local anesthetic. The small skin access port where the pellet is introduced into the fatty tissue is closed with steri-strips. To achieve full hormonal imbalance correction in all patients, only an experienced medical provider trained in the skills required to perform the procedure should be trusted. Our doctors and healthcare professionals are versed in proper dosing and technique. They will excel and meet all your expectations

Pellets are always implanted in the fatty layer of the buttocks or abdomen providing very smooth, stable and consistent levels of hormones. Creams and gels may fluctuate due to skin’s erratic absorption. Thus, the levels actually absorbed by the blood are inconsistent, which makes the overall therapy inconsistent. Many patients also prefer convenience of pellets. Once they’re in, there’s nothing else to do. Pellets don’t require the patient to remember when to take a pill or receive an injection.  The pellets are made up of pure hormones, which are not metabolized through your body, a process which can break a pill down and provide inconsistent delivery. Pellet insertion allows the blood to absorb the pure hormone in a consistent manner.

Yes, one of the main issues with creams and gels is transference to others. Maybe you’re a grandfather who doesn’t want to touch his grandchildren for fear of accidental transference. That kind of worry is eliminated with pellets.

Estrogen in its active form is estradiol pellets have been shown to help with the following:

  • Decreased migraines and menstrual headaches.
  • Alleviation of menopausal symptoms, including hot flashes, and heart palpitations
  • Sleep issues and insomnia.
  • Sexual problems such as loss of libido and painful intercourse as a result of vaginal dryness
  • Chronic fatigue, depression, irritability, poor memory, foggy brain and decreased concentration
  • Body aches and arthritis improve when diminishing hormones are optimized

In any of our four private facilities in Chicago’s gold coast, Oakbrook, Naperville and Arlington Heights. You won’t have to visit an intimidating operating room. This is a simple procedure.

Some patients begin to feel better within one or two days after insertion, while others may take a few weeks to experience a definite alleviation of their symptoms.

In women, pellets usually last between three and five months and in men between four and six months.
