Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) presents an innovative solution to individuals suffering from hormonal imbalances. Administered with minimal fuss, this treatment involves a swift in-office procedure during which a predetermined quantity of hormone pellets is inserted under the skin, usually around the hip area. Once implanted, these pellets steadily release small doses of hormones into the bloodstream, providing consistent relief over several months.
In our commitment to ensuring the utmost safety and effectiveness of our patients’ treatment, we utilize industry-leading terminal sterilization techniques to foster the sterility of our hormone pellets, eliminating all potential living microorganisms. Trust Momentum Medical for a seamless journey to hormonal relief.
Estradiol (E2) – As the most potent form of the three estrogens produced in the body, estradiol has a significant role in maintaining cardiovascular health, bone density, skin elasticity, and reproductive health. Its delivery in pellet form ensures a consistent therapeutic effect.
Testosterone – This hormone is fundamental in influencing both males’ and females’ physical development, muscle mass, energy levels, and libido. Our testosterone pellets provide a regular supply to the body, assisting in grappling with the symptoms associated with low testosterone levels.
Progesterone – Essential for men and women, progesterone aids in regulating sleep, mood, and reproductive health. Our progesterone pellets support those experiencing progesterone deficiency with a continuous delivery solution.
Momentum Medical’s commitment lies in convening leading-edge medicine with personalized care. Our diverse selection of hormone pellets demonstrates our dedication to this mission, ensuring our patients receive the most effective, tailored hormone replacement solution to suit their specific needs.
Enhanced Consistency: Unlike creams, injections, and pills that often result in hormone ‘peaks and valleys’ due to inconsistent absorption rates, hormone pellets provide continuous, steady hormone levels throughout the day for several months. This reduces the risk of mood swings and discomfort often associated with fluctuating hormone levels.
Convenience: Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) needs to be administered only a few times a year, making it an incredibly convenient solution for those leading busy lives. This stands in stark contrast to other HRT methods which require daily or weekly administration.
Customized Dosing: Each pellet is individually tailored to meet your specific needs. This personalized dosing allows for optimal treatment results, which isn’t always possible with standardized doses offered by pills or patches.
Reduced Side Effects: Pellets deliver the hormone directly into the bloodstream, bypassing the liver and reducing potential side effects often associated with oral medications.
Bioidentical Hormones: Unlike some synthetic hormone replacement therapies, pellet therapy uses bioidentical hormones that have the same chemical and molecular structure as the hormones naturally produced in the body. This is believed to minimize side effects and improve overall treatment efficacy.
The choice of the type of hormone replacement therapy depends mainly on individual circumstances and health goals. At Momentum Medical, we are ready to guide you on this journey towards balanced hormones, prioritizing your well-being and optimal health.
Typically, Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) provides sustained hormone release for about 3 to 6 months. However, the exact duration can vary based on individual metabolism rates, the specific amount of hormones in each pellet, and one’s level of physical activity. At Momentum Medical, we ensure regular follow-up appointments to monitor the effectiveness of the treatment and possibly adjust the treatment plan.
Indeed, as with any medical intervention, Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) can have some potential side effects or risks. The most common include:
In terms of hormonal side effects, these depend largely on the individual’s response to the increase in their hormone levels. Some people might experience:
It’s important to note that these side effects are usually temporary and tend to disappear as your body adjusts to the new hormone levels. In the rare event that side effects persist, we urge our patients to reach out to our specialists at Momentum Medical to review their treatment plan and make necessary adjustments.
Regardless of these potential side effects, many patients have found Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy to be an effective and convenient treatment choice for hormone imbalances. At Momentum Medical, we prioritize patient safety and satisfaction and ensure that every step of the treatment is tailored to meet each individual.
