Hormone pellets are a unique delivery form created to replicate as closely as possible the way in which hormones are naturally released in the body. In a simple, quick office procedure, these rice-grain-sized pellets are inserted under a patient’s skin near the hip area via a trocar.
Delivering hormone replacement therapy in pellet form has multiple benefits:
- Closest to nature — Pellets mimic the body’s natural delivery system more closely than any other method.
- Consistency — Pellets supply a consistent level of hormones in the bloodstream.
- Convenience — Hormone pellets only need to be inserted 2-4 times per year, replacing oral medications that must be taken daily.
- Fewer side effects — Pellet therapy bypasses the liver, sending hormones directly into the bloodstream, and avoiding certain side effects of oral medications.
Some patients report feeling symptom relief in as little as four weeks, although complete symptom relief may take up to six months.
Belmar sterile compounds hormone pellet implants in estradiol, testosterone, testosterone with cholesterol, progesterone, and anastrozole. We use specialized techniques to ensure our pellets are safe. Every batch is tested for potency and endotoxins. As a 503B outsourcing facility, we do not require patient-specific prescriptions and are able to ship pellets in bulk to physicians’ offices.
