Hormone pellets contain a natural plant source of estrogen and testosterone. Following strict federal guidelines, a compounding pharmacist combines the estrogen and testosterone utilized in the hormone pellets.
These pellets are no bigger than a grain of rice and are placed in the fatty tissue underneath the skin. The pellets most closely mimic the actions of healthy ovaries and testicles with regards to hormone release into the bloodstream. Our office is able to easily perform the hormone pellet implantation procedure for our patients.
