Pellet therapy uses hormones derived from natural plant sources to replicate the body’s normal hormonal levels. Patients have found that bio-identical hormone replacement therapy with pellet implants is extremely effective. Implants, placed under the skin, consistently release small, physiologic doses of hormones that provide optimal therapy.
Unlike typical oral and transdermal forms of therapy — which produce “roller coaster” hormone levels, resulting in mood and energy fluctuations for the patient — BioTE® Medical Hormone Pellet Therapy is the only method of hormone therapy that provides sustained hormone levels throughout the day for up to three to five months without any “roller coaster” effect.
Because the hormones used are completely natural, pellet therapy is ideal for patients who want the benefits of a natural hormone without the drawbacks of a synthetic.
BioTE® Hormone Pellet Therapy is based on 34 years of research and relies on data and studies dating back as early as 1939, making this modality of therapy the longest-studied form of bio-identical hormone replacement therapy. Subcutaneous pellet therapy is the only form of HRT that ensures patient compliance 100% of the time, thus resulting in superior patient results.
For women: usually every 3-4 months. For men: usually every 4-5 months.
They are pure hormone that is not metabolized into byproducts by going through the liver, stomach or skin. This delivery system allows your body to use the right amount of hormone from the pellet as the blood flow surrounding the pellets picks up what is needed.
Because they are pure hormone without fillers or synthetic ingredients, they completely dissolve.
That depends on how much you exercise and work out with weights, as well as your age. Testosterone decreases fat and increases muscle and lean body mass. Testosterone also increases your natural growth hormone and therefore will improve your stamina to work out and increase muscle mass.
Good hormone balance will greatly improve your libido. The addition of testosterone in pellet form will change everything for the better!
Yes! We have had great success, especially with women who have menstrual migraines, and new migraines that appear after age 35.
If you still have a uterus, you will need to be on natural progesterone as well.
Estrogen is the most important hormone for a woman. It protects her against heart attack, stroke, osteoporosis, and Alzheimer’s. It also keeps us looking young and healthy.
Testosterone is the third female hormone and is as essential as estrogen and progesterone. We need this hormone to keep our thought process quick and our libido healthy. It improves bone density, muscle mass, strength and prevents some types of depression. It is also the source of energy and solid sleep!
There is less chance of excess hair growth with natural testosterone than with synthetic hormones. Facial hair will grow with testosterone pellets, but normally no more than when you were in your thirties.
No. Metabolites of testosterone, Dihydrotestosterone and estrone cause prostate enlargement and contribute to prostate cancer. Estrone increases and testosterone decreases as men age and as men gain belly fat. Testosterone pellets are the only replacement that reverses that trend.
Your blood levels of estrone and DHT are checked after treatment to see if they are elevated. Some men still convert to these metabolites even on testosterone pellets. If they are converting, we troubleshoot with natural supplements such as DIM and Saw Palmetto, or an aromatase inhibitor prescription.
Testosterone pellets will make it better, if you do not convert it to DHT; we will treat that if it happens.
Yes, they will. Testicles are suppressed by taking any kind of testosterone and they will not make as much testosterone while the pellets are working. This is not permanent and the testicle retains its ability to produce testosterone.

“I have had hot flashes for over 10 years and have tried numerous conventional hormones and natural remedies without much success. My sex drive was almost non-existent. I was fatigued and depressed. Almost instantly after my first pellet insertion I found relief! I would highly recommend the BioTE® Hormone Replacement Therapy; it’s a life saver!”
