Women need a balance of estrogen, progesterone, testosterone, thyroid hormones and cortisol. When this balance is not in place, women can feel symptoms such as hot flashes, night sweats, forgetfulness, foggy thinking, unwanted weight gain, declining interest in sex, PMS, sleep disturbance…the list is endless.
There is no need to suffer. Don’t let anyone tell you that it’s all in your head or it is just a part of aging. Let us help you on your journey to feeling better.
BHRT pellet implants are a very effective bio-identical method of hormone delivery.
Placed just under the skin, the tiny pellets release hormones for 3-5 months.
Do you have any of these symtoms? Take our Hormone Quizzes for assistance in determining what your symptoms could be trying to tell you.
Pellets are a unique delivery system made up of either bio identical estradiol or testosterone. The hormones are pressed or fused into very small solid cylinders. The pellets are about the size of a grain of rice. In the United States, pellets are made by a licensed compounding pharmacist and delivered in sterile glass vials.

Most Patients Prefer BHRT Pellet Therapy to Other Forms of Hormone Replacement Therapy Because Pellets Provide:
More reliable than patches or creams.
Two to three office visits per year.
No roller coaster ride of energy levels or emotions.
Produces natural even levels of sterile, potent hormones.
Customized dosing system determined by your provider for safe, monitored hormone levels.
Pellets deliver consistent, healthy levels of bio identical hormones for 3-6 months, depending on the dosage and the activity level of the patient. They avoid the fluctuations of hormone levels seen with other methods of delivery, like pills, patches, creams, gels and sprays that can cause unwanted side effects and symptoms a woman experiences. In comparative studies of conventional hormone replacement therapy, pellets have been shown to be superior for relief of menopausal symptoms, maintenance of bone density, restoration of sleep patterns, improved sex drive, and fatigue. Even patients that have failed using other delivery systems have a high success rate with pellets.
The insertion of pellets is a very simple, relatively painless procedure done under a local anesthesia. The pellets are inserted into the hip through a small incision which is then taped closed. Experience of the healthcare professional is essential, not only for placing the pellets, but in determining the correct dosage of hormones to be used. Then, as they release the hormones over time, the pellets completely dissolve on their own.
After pellets are inserted, patients may notice that they have more energy, sleep better and feel happier. Muscle mass and bone density will increase while fatty tissue decreases. Patients may notice increased strength, coordination, and physical performance. They may see an improvement in skin tone, and hair texture. Concentration and memory may improve as will overall physical and sexual health. Some patients begin to feel better within 24-48 hours while others may take a week or two to notice a difference.
Dr. Cowen has used pellets since the 1970’s when they were a popular delivery system for estrogen and testosterone, but two main factors had prevented us from offering them in the past. It had been difficult to source pellets from a supplier that could guarantee the quality and consistency that we insist upon. Now, every shipment of our pellets from Pharmacy Solutions is independently third-party tested for sterility and potency. As experts in the field of hormone therapy, we also required the freedom to completely control proper dosing in our patients. Recently other providers have now begun to offer pellet therapy, but with our years of education and expertise in the field of Women’s Health, you can be assured of quality product and customized, safe monitored levels of hormone pellet therapy treatment.
