Hormone Pellet Therapy

Conveniently located to serve the areas of Walnut Creek, CA

Pellet therapy is one of the safest and most effective methods of hormone replacement. This form of hormone replacement closely mimics the human body as it focuses on delivering a low dosage of hormones to the body consistently as needed. This method removes the risk of human error as it does not require pills, creams, or patches.

Hormone pellets use bioidentical hormones (natural hormones) consisting of testosterone or estrogen. The pellets are placed in the body and release a continuous stream of hormones for months of symptom relief per treatment.

For both men and women, hormonal imbalance can manifest in various ways. Women may experience symptoms such as hot flashes, night sweats, mood swings, low libido, fatigue, weight gain, and sleep disturbances. Men, on the other hand, may notice a decline in energy levels, decreased muscle mass, erectile dysfunction, irritability, and difficulty concentrating.

Hormone pellet therapy could be exactly what your body is missing and just what you need! Call us today at ☎ (925) 433-8444 and book a consultation for testosterone therapy at our Walnut Creek office.

About Hormonal Imbalance

The endocrine system is a sophisticated network of glands and organs that work together to produce and release hormones into the bloodstream. These hormones serve as chemical messengers that regulate various functions within the body and help maintain a state of balance, known as homeostasis.

Hormonal imbalances can occur due to various factors, including genetics, certain medical conditions, lifestyle choices, and aging. These imbalances can disrupt the normal functioning of the endocrine system and lead to a wide range of symptoms and health issues.

Hormonal Imbalance in Women

For women, the intricate interaction of hormones such as estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone, influences numerous physiological processes, including the menstrual cycle, fertility, mood regulation, metabolism, and more.

Menopause, a natural part of a woman’s life, marks the end of reproductive function and brings about significant hormonal changes. Estrogen levels decline, leading to symptoms such as:

  • Hot flashes
  • Night sweats
  • Reduced sex drive
  • Vaginal dryness
  • Pain during sex
  • Mood swings
  • Sleep disorders
  • Dry skin
  • Anxiety
  • Poor bone density
  • Weight gain
  • Hair loss

Perimenopause, the transitional phase before menopause, can also present with similar symptoms. Hormone pellet therapy can provide relief from various menopause and perimenopause symptoms by restoring hormonal balance in the body.

Can Hormone Pellet Therapy Improve Bone Density?

Estrogen plays a critical role in maintaining bone health, and its decline during menopause can lead to a loss of bone density and an increased risk of osteoporosis. Hormone replacement therapy has been shown to improve the loss of bone density in postmenopausal women, reducing the risk of bone fractures. (1)

Hormonal Imbalance in Men

Hormonal imbalance in men is a common problem that increases with age. Hormone levels decrease as age increases, with an estimated 10-40% of men suffering from testosterone deficiency worldwide. (2) It leads to various health problems like muscle loss, and a decrease in strength, and sexual functions. Low testosterone can have an even more significant impact on quality of life, and it increases the risk of stroke and other problems. These problems are more evident in middle-aged men. This is also referred to as andropause or “male menopause”.

TRT is an FDA-approved treatment for men with low serum testosterone levels. (3) It can help with the following symptoms of low-T:

  • Depression and stress
  • Lower sex drive
  • Fatigue
  • Erectile dysfunction and sexual well-being
  • Weight gain due to hormonal imbalance
  • Sleep disorders
  • Urinary problems
  • Night sweats
  • Memory loss

What Do You Have To Do Before Taking Testosterone?

A detailed history and lab testing is required to accurately diagnose low testosterone.

Benefits of Hormone Pellet Therapy

Hormone pellet therapy helps men and women to restore hormonal balance, leading to:

  • Increased energy levels
  • Improved vitality
  • Enhanced libido
  • Improved sexual function
  • Improved focus, mood, and mental well-being
  • Better overall quality of life

Hormone-containing pellets are implanted into the body where they are easily accessible for direct release. An advantage of pellet therapy is that it results in consistent hormone levels, preventing the blood level fluctuations often associated with other forms of hormone therapy.

Candidates for Hormone Pellet Therapy

Candidates for hormone pellet therapy are individuals experiencing symptoms related to hormone imbalance. It is important to note that age is not necessarily a limiting factor when considering this form of treatment. Whether you are in your 30s or 60s, if you are experiencing symptoms of hormonal imbalance, it may be worth exploring pellet therapy as a treatment option.

Complementary Procedure: Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP)

Growth Hormone Peptide Therapy

Growth hormone peptide therapy involves the use of peptides to stimulate the body’s natural production of human growth hormone (HGH). This treatment aims to address growth hormone deficiency and promote various health benefits. Peptide therapy offers numerous benefits, including improved muscle mass, increased energy levels, enhanced metabolism, better sleep quality, and overall well-being. It can also aid in weight loss and anti-aging effects.

Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP)

PRP therapy is a safe and minimally invasive procedure that harnesses the body’s natural healing abilities. It involves extracting a small amount of blood from the patient, which is then processed to isolate platelets and growth factors. These concentrated platelets are rich in regenerative properties that can stimulate tissue repair and rejuvenation.

PRP Shot for Women

Sometimes referred to as the “orgasm shot”, PRP shots for women can enhance female sexual satisfaction, improve sexual function, and provide non-surgical vaginal rejuvenation. The PRP shot for women offers a holistic approach to address both physical and emotional aspects of intimacy, helping women achieve enhanced sexual pleasure, ultimately leading to a more fulfilling and gratifying sex life.

PRP Shot for Men

When injected into specific areas, such as the penis, PRP shots for men can enhance blood flow, promote the growth of new blood vessels, and improve tissue health. By injecting PRP directly into the penile tissue, it can help improve the quality of erections, enhance sensitivity, and increase sexual satisfaction. Additionally, PRP can be used to address other concerns, such as penile curvature or Peyronie’s disease, by promoting tissue healing and remodeling.

What types of hormonal imbalances are there?

As well as estrogen depletion in menopausal women and testosterone depletion in older men, other common hormonal imbalances include thyroid disorders, growth hormone deficiency, adrenal insufficiency, polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), and diabetes.

How do I know if hormone pellet therapy is right for me?

Hormone pellet therapy is not suitable for everyone and should be evaluated on an individual basis. Factors such as personal medical history, current health status, and risk factors for certain conditions must be taken into consideration. It is essential to consult with a qualified healthcare provider who specializes in hormone replacement therapy to determine if it is the right choice for you.

Is hormone replacement therapy a long-term solution for menopausal women?

Hormone replacement therapy can be used as a long-term solution for managing menopause symptoms. However, the duration of treatment varies for each individual based on factors such as symptom severity, response to therapy, and personal health goals. It is essential for patients to receive regular monitoring and follow-up appointments with their healthcare provider to assess the ongoing benefits and risks associated.

Do TRT hormone pellets shorten your life?

No, in fact when done properly TRT may increase your lifespan. Recent studies have shed light on the cardiovascular problems linked to TRT. Studies show that boosting serum testosterone levels to the normal range is associated with reduced all-cause mortality (longer lifespan).

Are there other forms of TRT?

Testosterone replacement therapy can be administered through various methods other than pellets, including injections, gels, and patches. Testosterone injections are typically given twice a week, while gels are applied daily to the skin. The choice of method depends on individual preferences, lifestyle factors, and medical considerations.

Does masturbating reduce testosterone?

Masturbation does not produce any long-lasting consequences on testosterone levels. However, it can cause a short-term effect on the levels of this crucial hormone.
