The natural, effective solution: Introducing bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT).

Bioidentical hormones are identical in molecular structure to human hormones, which means your body effectively cannot tell the difference. Plus, the pellet delivery method we use in at Blue Sky MD ensures a consistent dosage over time.

 

Bioidentical hormone therapy optimization may improve conditions such as:

  • Menopause
  • Andropause
  • Obesity
  • Heart Disease
  • Diabetes
  • Osteoporosis
  • Headaches/Migraines
  • Depression
  • Arthritis
  • Incontinence

How it works: Delivering the Right Method.

Our priority is to offer you the best solutions for your specific body, and goals.This may require using more traditional hormone therapy options such as pills, patches, creams,and injections, but at Blue Sky MD, we make it a priority to offer our patients the right custom solutions that may include a pellet delivery system.

Once every several months, we painlessly insert the pellet under the skin, and over time, the pellet consistently and evenly releases small doses of hormones. We find that even patients who have failed to get results with other types of hormone replacement therapy see a high level of success with this bioidentical hormone replacement therapy method.

Hormone Therapy FAQ’s

What are hormone pellets?

Pellets are made up of either estradiol or testosterone. The hormones are pressed or fused into very small solid cylinders. These pellets are larger than a grain of rice and smaller than a ‘Tic Tac’. In the United States, the majority of pellets are made by compounding pharmacists and delivered in sterile glass vials. There is an ‘FDA approved’ 75 mg testosterone pellet. Data supports that hormone replacement therapy with pellet implants is the most effective and the most bio-identical method to deliver hormones in both men and women. Implants, placed under the skin, consistently release small, physiologic doses of hormones providing optimal therapy.

What do hormone pellets do for you?

Pellets deliver consistent, healthy levels of hormones for 3-4 months in women and 4-5 months in men. They avoid the fluctuations, or ups and downs, of hormone levels seen with every other method of delivery. In studies, pellets have been shown to be superior for relief of menopausal symptoms, maintenance of bone density, restoration of sleep patterns, and improvement in sex drive, libido, sexual response and performance.

How are hormone pellets inserted?

The insertion of pellets is a simple, relatively painless procedure done under local anesthesia. The pellets are usually inserted in the lower abdominal wall or upper buttocks through a small incision, which is then taped, closed.

What are the side effects of hormone pellets?

Complications from the insertion of pellets include; minor bleeding or bruising, discoloration of the skin, infection, and the possible extrusion of the pellet. Other than slight bruising, or discoloration of the skin, these complications are very rare. Testosterone may cause a slight increase in facial hair in some women. Testosterone stimulates the bone marrow and increases the production of red blood cells.

Can men benefit from hormone pellets?

Testosterone levels begin to decline in men beginning in their early 30’s. Most men maintain adequate levels of testosterone into their mid 40’s to mid 50’s, some into their late 70’s to early 80’s. Men should be tested when they begin to show signs of testosterone deficiency. Even men in their 30’s can be testosterone deficient and show signs of bone loss, fatigue, depression, erectile dysfunction, difficulty sleeping and mental decline. Most men need to be tested around 50 years of age. It is never too late to benefit from hormone therapy.

How long do hormone pellets take to work?

Some patients begin to ‘feel better’ within 24-48 hours while others may take a week or two to notice a difference. Diet and lifestyle, along with hormone balance are critical for optimal health. Stress is a major contributor to hormone imbalance and illness. Weight loss is often helpful to optimize the effectiveness of pellet therapy.

How long do hormone pellets last?

The pellets usually last between 3 to 4 months in women and 4-5 months in men. The pellets do not need to be removed. They completely dissolve on their own.
