Hormones fluctuate as we get older, and this is true for men and women alike. While some symptoms may differ, general problems such as sadness and a lack of sexual desire can be extremely unpleasant. The goal is to make you feel young and healthy once more.
At ThinWorks, we treat both men and women with hormone depletion issues and concerns. We feel that bioidentical hormone replacement treatment is a natural and effective method to achieve this. We have proven strategies and programs to help you get started on your path to a better lifestyle starting with Hormone Therapy in Palm Beach Gardens.
Treatment for Hormone Depletion
Bioidentical Pellet Hormone Therapy
Bioidentical Pellet Therapy is a revolutionary hormone replacement therapy that employs a small cylindrical supplement to provide the hormones your body needs. These pellets are implanted beneath your skin and release a very specific dose of bioidentical hormones into your system, unlike conventional hormone treatments. These natural hormones are especially effective because they have the same structure and action as the hormones produced by your body.
We recommend pellet therapy because they don’t affect your liver, blood glucose levels, or blood pressure. The goal of hormone replacement treatment is to feel progressively better and healthier, while reclaiming your youthful energy.
Hormone Concerns and Changes
Entering perimenopause involves losing estrogen and progesterone.
Menstrual periods are affected by a progesterone deficiency. Furthermore, vaginal dryness, loss of vaginal suppleness, poor sex drive, and a general lack of interest in sexual activities are all symptoms of estrogen deficiency.
Other symptoms to consider are:
- Low energy
- Weight gain
- Night sweats
- Hot flashes
- Mood swings
The change in male hormones appear to be gradual, but it still happens as you get older and may have some serious side effects. Depression, weight gain, cognitive fog, and a decreased sex drive are all symptoms of hormone deficiency in both men and women.
However, there are specific indicators of low testosterone levels in men, such as:
- Problems with sleep
- Muscle atrophy
- Lack of self-confidence
- Lower bone density
- Erectile dysfunction (ED)
Bioidentical Pellet Therapy: How It Works
The insertion is simple and painless. Receiving pellet implants is a relatively straightforward operation performed in our clinic under a local anesthetic. The compounded pellet is implanted under the fatty lining of the skin in upper buttocks through a very small incision, dependent on your blood test results. You will not be able to feel your implant under the skin, so no worries about an annoying bump on your back. You’ll forget all about it.
The pellet, on the other hand, gets to work. The pellet releases modest, steady dosages of hormones over three to four months for women, and five to six months for men. Within 48 hours, some patients even report symptom improvement!
The pellets will then completely disintegrate and won’t require removal. Minor soreness and bruising is possible for a few days after insertion, but further adverse effects are uncommon.
