Horizon Internal Medicine now offers Hormone Replacement Therapy Pellets. In addition to hormone pills, patches, and creams that can be prescribed during menopause and andropause, bio-identical hormones can be custom-formulated for your specific needs. Unlike traditional HRT options, pellets are the only delivery system that provides a steady blood serum level over time and the chemical structure of the hormones is the same as those naturally produced in your body.

Upon scheduling a visit with our provider, we will take a thorough history including whether you have previously used other HRT methods. You will have blood work drawn to determine if you are a candidate for hormone pellets, then you will schedule an appointment for pellet insertion. The pellets are very small and compounded specifically for you in a nationally-accredited, sterile pharmacy. They are inserted in the office and the insertion process is generally painless.

Benefits of Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy Pellets include:

  • Alleviation of menopause and andropause symptoms, including sleep problems, mood swings, increased body fat, decreased libido and sexual function, hot flashes, night sweats, and anxiety
  • Re-establishing the protective benefits of balanced hormone levels, such as improved bone density, improved cardiovascular health, and enhanced immune function
  • Reversal of conditions associated with aging like osteoporosis, loss of strength, fatigue, exercise intolerance, decreasing muscle mass, and poor mental clarity
