What is hormone replacement therapy?

Hormone replacement therapy at Marina OB/GYN uses Pellecome® bioidentical hormone treatments to balance hormone levels and minimize unpleasant symptoms that commonly occur in aging women. The treatment uses tiny pellets placed just underneath your skin to release a steady stream of hormones into the bloodstream over time.

Pellecome offers numerous advantages over BioTe® pellet technology due to easier, safer pellet insertion and more reliable results. Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy utilizes hormones, derived from yams, which happen to be identical to those hormones that your body normally produces.

What are the symptoms of hormone imbalance?

Some of the common symptoms of hormone imbalance in women include:

  • Thinning hair
  • Loss of breast fullness
  • Vaginal dryness
  • Hot flashes
  • Sleeping problems
  • Other menopause symptoms
  • Weight gain

  • Fatigue
  • Reduced lean mass
  • Body fat gains

Is hormone replacement therapy right for me?

To find out if you’re a candidate for hormone therapy, your Marina OB/GYN specialist reviews your medical history, including your symptoms, medications, family medical history, and lifestyle habits. They check your vital signs, complete a physical exam, and use blood tests to evaluate your hormone levels before tailoring a bioidentical hormone treatment that’s best for you.

What should I expect during the procedure?

During hormone replacement therapy, you rest on a comfortable exam table. Your OB/GYN specialist numbs the skin near your upper buttocks and then inserts the hormone pellets under the skin. The pellets are the size of a grain of rice. Afterward, they close the insertion site using medical strips; there are no sutures needed. The procedure often takes less than 15 minutes.

What should I expect after hormone replacement therapy?

After Pellecome pellet implantation, you can resume normal daily activities immediately. To achieve the best results, you might receive Pellecome hormone pellets about three times a year. The Marina OB/GYN team monitors your hormone levels regularly to make sure they stay in a healthy, normal range.
