Navigating Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) with Pellet Therapy

Whether you’re new to Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) or have been using it for a while, understanding how to use it effectively is crucial. Does how you administer BHRT make a difference? Absolutely, and at Viva Wellness Center, we specialize in pellet therapy to ensure the best results.

Understanding Your Hormone Allies: Estrogen, Progesterone, & Testosterone

Think of bioidentical hormones as your secret weapons on your journey to balanced health. They’re not magic potions but come pretty close! These hormones are identical to those naturally produced by your body, making them highly effective in addressing hormonal imbalances.

So, what exactly do they do?

  • They Restore Hormonal Balance: BHRT helps replenish hormone levels that decline with age, reducing symptoms like hot flashes, night sweats, mood swings, and low energy.
  • They Enhance Quality of Life: By balancing hormones, BHRT can improve sleep, boost libido, and enhance overall well-being.
  • They Support Bone and Heart Health: Proper hormone levels are crucial for maintaining bone density and cardiovascular health.

How to Administer: Pellet Therapy

At Viva Wellness Center, we exclusively offer pellet therapy, a convenient and effective method for delivering bioidentical hormones.

Pellets: These are tiny, rice-sized hormone pellets inserted under the skin by a healthcare provider. They provide a steady hormone release over several months.

Pellet Therapy: Tips for a Smooth Experience

  1. Consult Your Healthcare Provider: Before starting therapy, consult with our healthcare professionals to determine the right hormone levels for your needs.
  2. Prepare for Insertion: The pellet insertion is a quick, minimally invasive procedure performed in our office. Ensure you follow any pre-procedure instructions given by your provider.
  3. Post-Insertion Care: After insertion, follow the care instructions provided to ensure optimal healing and hormone absorption.
  4. Monitor Your Symptoms: Keep track of how you feel and any changes in your symptoms. Report these to your healthcare provider for potential adjustments.
  5. Schedule Follow-Ups: Regular follow-up appointments are essential to monitor your hormone levels and make any necessary adjustments.

Common Pellet Therapy Mistakes & How to Avoid Them

  • Ignoring Post-Insertion Care: Follow all post-insertion care instructions to prevent infection and ensure proper healing.
  • Skipping Follow-Ups: Regular monitoring is crucial to ensure your hormone levels remain balanced.
  • Not Communicating with Your Provider: Regularly update your healthcare provider on your progress and any side effects.
  • Expecting Immediate Results: Hormonal balance takes time. Be patient and allow your body to adjust to the therapy.

Monitoring & Managing Side Effects

While BHRT is generally well-tolerated, some individuals may experience side effects such as:

  • Bruising or swelling at the insertion site
  • Breast tenderness
  • Mood swings
  • Bloating

These side effects are usually temporary. If they persist or worsen, consult your healthcare provider for guidance.
