Bioidentical Hormone Pellet Therapy (BHRT)

BHRT Hormone Implants

Are small crystalline slow-release pellets containing 100% body / bio-identical hormones. The pellets are implanted under the skin and options include both estradiol and testosterone. The Implants are given every 3 to 6 months for women and every typically 5 to 6 months for men. A blood test is required 2 weeks prior to implant and is needed at least every 6 months to monitor hormone levels to ensure the dose and frequency is changed accordingly if necessary. Our guidelines follow safe practice to ensure normal therapeutic blood levels are maintained.

Studies have shown Estrogen for women can prevent heart attack, stroke, osteoporosis, and Alzheimer’s. For men studies have shown Testosterone is important for bone density, muscle mass, and strength along with preventing depression, decreased energy, and decreased sleep.

For women, if you still have a uterus, you will also be prescribed a progestogen/progesterone to prevent the risk of developing endometrial hyperplasia that increases risk of endometrial cancer. Estrogen implants should be considered a non-reversable HRT that cannot be removed once inserted. If you are planning a family within 12 months of the treatment, this option is not suitable.
