Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Pellets
In both women and men, the body’s hormones regulate almost every aspect of health and wellness. But when an individual’s hormone production begins to decline, or becomes out of balance, they can suffer from a wide variety of mild to serious side-effects and health problems. Just some of the conditions associated with hormone deficiency or imbalance are: weight gain, aging skin, stubborn body fat, decrease in energy, lower sex drive, vaginal pain and dryness, osteoporosis, thyroid issues, and much more.
Fortunately, bioidentical hormone replacement pellets, now available at ESP Medical in Brockton, MA, can restore missing hormones for renewed health and a better quality of life.
Menopause is the most common cause of hormone decline or deficiency in middle-aged women. And hysterectomy is another common cause of hormone imbalance. But both men and women, of virtually any age, can also experience insufficient hormone production. A single insertion of BioTe® bioidentical hormone replacement pellets can naturally replace the body’s missing hormones for three to five months – returning the body to healthy functioning.
Rice sized pellets are inserted under the skin in a quick office procedure. These miniscule pellets “time-release” all-natural bio-identical hormones – such as forms of estrogen or testosterone – to constantly balance the body’s hormones. In addition to being convenient and effective, BioTe® bioidentical hormone replacement pellets are derived from 100% natural sources – making them one of the safest and most superior methods of hormone replacement.

How BioTe Hormone Replacement Pellets Work
Prior to starting bioidentical hormone replacement therapy, Dr. Merchia will order a complete blood panel, to determine the type and degree of the patient’s hormone deficiencies. A hormone replacement treatment plan will then be customized to address the specific hormone imbalances that are found.
Before insertion a local anesthetic is applied, to ensure a comfortable experience. Next, the tiny BioTe pellet – smaller than a grain of rice – is inserted in the buttocks (or sometimes the lower abdomen). Because of the pellet’s miniscule size, no stitches are required. And, there is no downtime or recovery period after insertion. A few easy to follow precautions must be adhered to for a few days. These include avoiding swimming, soaking, or exercising.
The tiny BioTe pellet is “time released” and will continuously and consistently emit hormones under the skin to keep hormones at constant, normal healthy levels. Most patients will see noticeable improvement as early as two or three weeks after insertion of the pellet. BioTe hormone replacement pellets continue to work for 4 to 6 months in men, and from 3 to 5 months in women. So there is no inconvenience of remembering daily hormone pills, or applying messy hormone creams.
As the BioTe hormone replacement pellets dissolve they are absorbed by the body, and so do not need to be removed. During the course of the person’s treatment, Dr. Merchia will continue to monitor the patient’s hormone levels, in order to make any adjustments that may be necessary.
