    Hormone Therapy: Women

    Female Hormone Replacement Therapy

    Balance your natural hormone levels for improved energy, mood, & more

    Are you feeling a lack of drive, motivation, and energy, as well as experiencing mental fog, mood swings, feelings of sluggishness, and weight gain? These may all be signs that you have low testosterone, estrogen, and/or progesterone. Hormone replacement therapy (or HRT) can effectively control these symptoms of hormone imbalances and menopause in women.

    WHAT DOES IT COST?

    Pellets cost $2550/year if you pay as you go, or $2400/year if you pay in full up front. This price does not include additional creams or supplements, which are customized for each patient.

    WHAT IS THE DOWNTIME?

    There is no downtime.

    WILL I HAVE RESTRICTIONS?

    With pellets, you’ll need to avoid baths and hot tubs for 2 days and avoid vigorously scrubbing the site for a week. You will also need to avoid heavy lifting, exercise, or vigorous activity for 3-5 days. The site may be uncomfortable for up to 2-3 weeks.

    WHO IS A GOOD CANDIDATE?

    Non-smoking women experiencing hormone deficiencies who are in generally good health.

    What is hormone therapy treatment like?

    Labs will be ordered to ensure proper dosing and optimal outcomes. Once labs are reviewed, you will come back to the office and have your first pellet placed, which takes 10-15 minutes.
    There are different ways to administer testosterone replacement therapy. The most popular and well-tolerated method for women is pellets. During your consultation, we will go over your concerns and health history in order to determine which method best fits your needs.

    How many treatments are required?

    Depending on which method you choose, treatment frequency will vary. Pellets are placed every 3 months. Creams are applied multiple times a day.

    Does the treatment hurt?

    A local numbing shot is administered prior to the pellet placement, which normally causes some stinging. You may feel pressure during pellet placement, as well. The site may be a little sore or tender for up to 2-3 weeks, but overall is very well tolerated by our patients.

    What is included in the cost of treatment?

    Pellets—Pay as you go | $2550/year
    Pellets—Pay in full up front | $2400/year

    Pellet pricing includes initial consult, all labs for the year, 4 pellet placement appointments, and any follow-up appointments that are needed. Creams and any oral supplements or medication are not included, since they are customized to each patient.
