Find Relief With Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Pellet Therapy
BHRT, short for Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy, is used by men and women to treat hormone imbalances, hormone deficiencies and a number of conditions related to hormone dysfunction and problems in the endocrine system.
BHRT supplements the body with bioidentical hormones, which are hormones derived form natural plant sources that are chemically identical to the hormones naturally produced by the body. Many people find bioidentical hormones vastly superior to the synthetic hormones that are prescribed as part of regular, non-identical hormone therapy protocols.
Bioidentical hormones are available in a wide variety of forms, including pills, patches, injections, creams, suppositories and subdermal pellets. While each of these forms has its own list of pros and cons, subdermal bioidentical hormone pellets with Dr. Hughes have taken off as a wildly popular and successful format for receiving Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy in Los Angeles.
- BHRT Pellets vs. Other Forms
BHRT Pellets vs. Creams, Pills, Patches, etc.
Most forms of BHRT require frequent maintenance throughout the day—rubbing a cream on, taking pills, adding and removing patches, etc. This is a tedious process and is often difficult for many patients to keep track of and keep up with regularly. With bioidentical hormone pellets, this is no longer a problem.
Bioidentical hormone pellets are inserted just beneath the skin, usually in the hip or buttock. There they will remain, slowly dissolving over the course of 3–6 months. With such a slow, gradual release many patients forget that they are even receiving BHRT at all.
The gradual release of hormones is another reason that many patients in Los Angeles find hormone pellets superior to other forms of BHRT. Especially for those patients who receive BHRT in high doses, the side effects of receiving a sudden influx of hormones can be off-putting. With hormone pellets, the release is gradual so as to avoid sudden spikes in hormone levels.

Benefits of Bioidentical Hormone Pellets
Hormone pellets are a great way to receive supplemental estrogen, progesterone and testosterone. Because these hormones are involved in a great many hormone-related conditions, including menopause, perimenopause, andropause, low T, PCOS and fibromyalgia, bioidentical hormone pellets are appropriate for a great many conditions.
Many patients are concerned about having a lump under their skin or something leftover once their BHRT protocol is complete. The good news is that hormone pellets are tiny, about the size of a grain of rice. And because they are injected below the skin of the hip or buttock, they’ll remain completely undetected. As they work, the pellets gradually dissolve until there is nothing, not even a residue, remaining.
By having their hormones balanced with bioidentical hormone pellets, many patients have noticed improved focus, weight loss, better moods, enhanced vitality and better heart, bone and brain health.
