How Can Hormone Pellet Therapy Improve Menopause Symptoms?

Menopausal,Mature,Woman,Having,Hot,Flush,At,Home,Cooling,Herself If you’re battling significant menopause symptoms ranging from hot flashes and night sweats to dry skin and thinning hair, you’ll want to review how hormone pellet therapy (HPT) works to deliver a steady dose of hormones directly into your bloodstream over several months.

What Is HPT?

Hormone pellet therapy (HPT) refers to a process where small pellets no bigger than a grain of rice are inserted under your skin to deliver estrogen and/or testosterone with the intent of alleviating severe menopausal symptoms. The pellets are usually inserted in the hip or abdominal region.

How HPT Specifically Impacts Menopause Symptoms

When your hormones are out of balance, such as during menopause, multiple bodily functions can be impacted. HPT helps smooth out the bumps in the menopausal journey by stabilizing hormone levels in the body.


Unlike other hormone therapy processes, HPT provides a continuous release of hormones, creating stable and steady levels that can be more effective in managing symptoms.

Reduces Hot Flashes and Night Sweats

Uncomfortable hot flashes and night sweats can be alleviated by regulating estrogen levels. With HPT, you may see decreased frequency and strength or a complete cessation of these symptoms.

Reduces Anxiety and Stabilizes Mood

When hormones fluctuate, they can cause increased anxiety and depression. Steadying your hormones can stabilize your mood and improve these symptoms.

Improves Sleep

With HPT, you can reduce night sweats and anxiety, improving sleep quality.

Increases Bone Density

Because estrogen plays a crucial role in maintaining bone density, HPT can help you prevent the rapid bone loss that often occurs during menopause.

Enhances Libido

The addition of testosterone to hormone pellet therapy can help improve sexual desire and satisfaction.

Maintains Skin and Hair Health

While dry skin and thinning hair are often associated with menopause, the supplementation of estrogen helps reduce these conditions.

In general, patients choosing HPT start to notice changes within 72 hours of insertion, with a maximum benefit occurring three weeks after initial insertion.
