7 Key Benefits of Women’s Pellet Therapy

If you’ve cut out the usual suspects (such as too much caffeine or not enough exercise) and are still tossing and turning at night, it’s possible that your hormones are causing the problem. Yale medicine found that many of our hormones can impact our sleep, especially if you have untreated polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS). By figuring out which hormones are impacting your natural sleep cycle, you can find the right treatment to rebalance your system and get the sleep you deserve. 

Even if you’re not having difficulties falling asleep, hormone imbalances can cause you to feel exhausted after a full night of rest. Rather than turning to unhealthy energy solutions like caffeine drinks and energy pills, you can restore your energy naturally simply by syncing up your hormones. 

No matter how old you are, hormones can negatively impact your sex life. This is often due to other hormones outweighing your level of testosterone, the hormone that encourages sexual drive. While our bodies naturally reduce their testosterone levels during menopause, sometimes the production of this hormone slows down before it should. 

Don’t let your sex life skip a beat. You can regulate your hormones and restore your sex drive easily with pellet hormone therapy. And when you get your libido back, you’ll be glad you have more energy to go along with it. 

It’s no secret that women have a harder time maintaining a healthy weight. With metabolism slowing our calorie-burning capabilities as we age, it can become even more challenging. But for some of us, even the strictest regimens can’t keep excess weight off entirely.

When eating a healthy diet and exercising regularly is not enough, imbalanced hormones are often the source of the problem. This is incredibly frustrating to deal with, but it can be resolved. By regulating your hormones, you can lose the extra pounds easily – some people see results in a matter of weeks. 

While poor sleep quality may be impacting your mental health, the hormones in your body could be further impacting your ability to process. Many women experience irritability, anxiety, depression, mood swings, and forgetfulness due to hormone imbalances. These symptoms are personally difficult to deal with and can negatively affect your work and personal life. 

Many people with hormone imbalances resort to antidepressants because they did not know the true source of the problem. These medications may reduce emotional experiences, but they will not cure the other conditions that you may be having (many of which typically worsen without treatment). Pellet therapy can improve mental and physical health naturally without the negative side effects that many antidepressant medications can cause.  

As you may have noticed, hormones cause extremities on both ends of your body’s symptoms. With female hair growth, hormone imbalances can cause too much or too little hair.

If you’re noticing more hair growth on your body or face, you may have more testosterone than your body knows what to do with. Conversely, other hormonal imbalances can cause significant hair loss. With hair removal solutions being painful and female hair regrowth medications causing more harm than good, finding the right hair treatment solution is challenging. 

You can resolve your condition safely (and with minimal effort) through pellet hormone therapy. The secret to pellet therapy is that it can be customized to suit the needs of your body, so if you’re experiencing either or both of these hair conditions, hormone pellets can be adjusted to balance your system out. 

Anyone who has experienced hot flashes knows how rapidly these onsets change your comfort level. If you haven’t experienced a hot flash but are experiencing other hormone imbalance symptoms, regulating your hormones soon may save you from some very uncomfortable situations down the road. Pellet therapy reduces hot flash symptoms down to a minimum so that you can go back to living life without the inconvenient disruptions.

Frequently Asked Questions:

What Is Hormone Pellet Therapy?

Pellet Therapy uses hormones derived from natural plant sources and professionally compounded to be biologically identical to the human form of estradiol and testosterone to replicate the body’s normal hormonal levels. Patients have found that bioidentical hormone replacement therapy with pellet implants is extremely effective. The body is given what it can no longer produce. Implants, placed under the skin, consistently release small, physiologic doses of hormones providing optimal therapy.

Unlike typical oral and transdermal forms of therapy – which produce “roller coaster” hormone levels, resulting in mood and energy fluctuations for the patient – BioTE® Medical Hormone Pellet Therapy, is the only method of hormone therapy that provides sustained hormone levels throughout the day, for up to 4 to 6 months, without any “roller coaster” effect.

Because the hormones used are completely natural, Pellet Therapy is ideal for patients wanting the benefits of a natural hormone, without the drawbacks of a synthetic.

How Long Do Pellets Last?

Pellets last up to three to six months depending on gender, weight, absorption rates, and the amount of deficiency or surplus of hormones present within the patient at the time of insertion. Pellets are reinserted between two to four times per year to help keep hormones optimized and balanced and may take up to two insertions before feeling the full benefits.

What Blood Tests are Required Before the Insertion?

Biote Certified Providers require extensive lab work while considering a patient’s candidacy for BHRT using pellets. A provider will discuss the results with a patient before moving forward with pellet therapy.

For women, lab work will consist of testing for the following: Total Testosterone, Estradiol, TSH, FSH, Free T3, Total T4, CMP (comprehensive metabolic profile), Vitamin D, TPO and B12 (lipids are optional)

For men, lab work will consist of testing: Total Testosterone, Estradiol, Free Testosterone, TSH, PSA (for men 50‐69), Free T3, Total T4, TPO, CMP (comprehensive metabolic profile), Vitamin D, CBC, Vitamin B12 (lipids are optional).

What Happens During the Office Visit?

During the in-office visit, which only takes a few minutes, patients are brought into the exam room, and the insertion site is numbed. The most common site of insertion is the upper buttocks. A small incision is then made for pellet insertion. Once the pellet is inserted, the insertion site is covered with a small bandage.


Our Providers are Biote Certified and receive training on bioidentical hormone replacement therapy in the form of subcutaneous pellets. These pellets are inserted into the upper buttocks area during an in-office visit after testing is done to determine the exact quantity of the hormone the patient requires. Every dose is customized based on a consultation and extensive lab work to ensure a patient receives the exact concentration of hormones needed.

Bioidentical hormones work with the chemistry of the body because they replicate the molecular structure of the hormones that normally occur within the body.
