HORMONE PELLET THERAPY
Hormone Pellet Therapy, La Jolla, CA
Bio-identical hormones delivered by pellet therapy at KOI Wellness are the most effective way of administering BHRT. KOI Wellbeing is among the few places in San Diego offering this life-changing treatment. Hormone pellet therapy is the most effective way of delivering Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) for several reasons.
What is Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy?
Bioidentical Hormones Replacement Therapy (BHRT) restores the correct levels of hormones in your system to fight the effects of aging and hormonal imbalance. It’s often used to treat symptoms of menopause, but both men and women equally enjoy its benefits.
While this is a quick in-office procedure and minimally invasive, hormone pellets provide profound benefits mentally and physically. BHRT with pellet implants is superior to other methods because of the consistency in dosage and length of time.
Why is Pellet therapy the best form of BHRT?
Bioidentical hormones are biologically identical to ones naturally found in the body. These hormone pellets contain plant derived estradiol or testosterone and are similar in size to a grain of rice.
At KOI Wellbeing, pellet therapy is the preferred and most efficient way of bioidentical hormone replacement therapy. These rice grain-sized pellets are inserted in your love handles or upper buttocks to continuously release the proper doses of hormones.
Providing effects 24 hours a day, months at a time, pellets are the sole form of BHRT that is considered to be long-term. Patients will be allowed to feel relief from their symptoms and feel the effects of their newly balanced hormones at all times of the day. It is superior to other hormone therapy products and synthetic hormones from drug companies.
What to expect from Hormone Pellets
Pellet implantation is a straightforward procedure, usually performed under local anesthesia. Pellet implants are usually placed into the fatty tissue under the skin by inserting them through a small incision in the upper buttocks or love handles. Sterile-taped strips then close the wound. Patients usually don’t feel the implant beneath their skin. We recommend refraining from exercise for a few days to allow for proper healing.
Benefits of BHRT with Pellets

BHRT for menopausal symptoms
Bio-identical Hormone Therapy (BHRT) is most often prescribed for menopause-related conditions such as hot flashes and nighttime sweating. Postmenopausal women who suffer from low bone density often experience one of the most severe side effects of menopause: an increase in the likelihood of developing osteoporosis and breaking bones. BHRT is important for slowing down bone loss so that your bones remain strong and healthy throughout life.
BHRT treats the following menopausal symptoms:
- Lowered bone density
- Vaginal atrophy
- Vaginal dryness
- Minor memory loss
- Hot flashes
- Night sweats
- Pain during sex
Postmenopausal women and women in menopause both benefit from this treatment.
How long do pellets last?
Pellets provide a steady release of hormones, and usually last between 3-5 months for females, and 5-6 months for males. Certain factors that may affect pellets’ absorption rate are physical activity, medications, and lack of sleep.
Because of this, you may need to insert new pellets earlier than usual. They dissolve naturally into the body when they’re absorbed. The next treatment is typically placed on the opposite side, alternating between the two sides each time.
Side effects may include bloating, acne, weight gain, fatigue, and increased facial hair in women.
These are common side effects in the beginning of treatment as the body becomes newly adjusted to the new dose of hormones. It is rare for any adverse event to occur, and initial side effects will subside.
Is BHRT right for you?
Hormonal imbalance, depression, brain fog, insomnia (insomnia), muscle wasting, low sexual desire, and low energy are among the symptoms of hormonal imbalance that greatly lower your quality of life, as well as the symptoms of menopause.
Postmenopausal women experience a wide range of symptoms, including hair loss, low libido, and irregular menstrual cycles. This is related to the levels of hormones in the human body.
Bioidentical pellets are the most convenient and efficient way to deliver bio-identical hormones into your body. Medication taken orally must be given regularly and doesn’t last long enough for consistency. Creams may transfer to others through skin-to-skin contact, a large concern for those who are around children.
Hormone therapy is necessary to correct these range of symptoms and support optimal health. Pellet therapy allows you to receive treatment with low maintenance, and maximum effectiveness.
