Hormonal imbalance is a very serious problem for many women, particularly when it comes to perimenopause and menopause.

Hormone pellet therapy for women is a natural treatment that alleviates the symptoms of female hormonal imbalance safely and effectively.
What is Hormone Pellet Therapy for Women?
Hormone pellet therapy is a type of hormone optimization treatment. All women typically experience some form of hormone imbalance as a part of perimenopause and menopause. That's because during perimenopause and menopause, the body stops adequately producing estrogen and other key hormones such as testosterone.
Symptoms of hormone imbalance in women include:
- Extreme fatigue
- Mood swings
- Tension and irritability
- Lack of sleep
- Memory loss
- Lack of focus
- Brain fog
- Hot flashes
- Night sweats
- Weight gain
- Joint pain
- Migraine/severe headache
- Urinary incontinence
- Decreased sex drive
- Vaginal dryness
- Bone loss
About one in seven women over age 50 has osteoporosis, and about one half of all women over age 50 can be expected to suffer an osteoporosis-related fracture during their lifetime. Studies have shown hormone imbalance in women is also a major contributor to Alzheimer's disease and dementia; women are eight times more likely to suffer from these serious health problems.
How Does Hormone Pellet Therapy for Women Work?
We provide a form of hormone therapy for women called the BioTE® method using hormone pellet therapy. The BioTE® method utilizing hormone pellet therapy has many benefits when compared to other delivery methods like patches, injections and pills. Benefits of hormone pellet therapy include:
- It's absorbed directly into the blood
- It's made of natural hormones
- There's no “roller coaster” effect, and hormones are delivered consistently 24/7
- Minimal side effects
Synthetic hormones can be delivered in pills, patches, creams, gels and injections, but they often produce unwanted side effects like fluctuating hormone levels throughout the day and, studies show, they increase your risk of heart disease, breast cancer, blood clots and high blood pressure.
There are some side effects of hormones, but these issues usually are resolved once hormone levels are balanced. Men and women have reported acne or irritability during the initial phases of testosterone hormone therapy.
Some women have reported breast tenderness, spotting, cramping and bloating. These symptoms may be experienced initially with estrogen hormone treatment, but they resolve as hormone levels become balanced.
Occasionally, hormone therapy patients will complain of itching or redness at the injection or insertion site, and these symptoms diminish as the body adjusts to treatment.
The BioTE® method using hormone pellet therapy is a type of hormone therapy; it requires an appointment every few months. Women who have received hormone pellet therapy report:
- Reduced hot flashes
- Fewer mood swings
- Increased energy levels
- Increased sexual drive
- Stronger mental focus
- Decreased body fat
Studies show, hormone pellet therapy for women also has a major effect on strengthening bones and reducing osteoporosis.
