Is Hormone Replacement Therapy Right for You?

I had heard about Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) off and on for the last 10 years or so.  I always thought, “I’ll never need that, I’ll be just fine, my Mom never needed it.”

Turns out, I probably DID need it ten years or so ago!

About eight months ago I heard about a natural bioidentical hormone replacement therapy that uses hormone pellets implanted under the skin throught a small incision in your upper hip area. The procedure is painless and only takes about 5 minutes. These pellets release a low dose of the hormones into the blood stream when the body needs it, which is a more natural way to receive them.  These hormones are derived from natural plants sources only – no horse urine or fillers. They last from 3 – 4 months for women, and 4 – 6 months for men.

When I heard about the benefits they provided, I knew I had to try them!

These benefits apply to both men and women:
Enhanced libido/sex drive
Decrease in body fat & greater capacity to get in shape
Increase energy levels
Increased mental focus and improved memory
Consistency in moods & an increased sense of overall well-being
For women:  Protection from heart disease
For men:  Increase in muscle size, weight & strength

Being 55, and in menopause, I could use all those benefits, especially the increase in energy.  I think I had been tired most of the time for the last 10 years!

So in May 2012, I received my first dose of pellets.  Within 3 days, my night sweats were completely gone. (Yeah!)  In about a week and a half I could tell my energy was increasing slowly.  They tell you that the hormones actually work better if you exercise regularly.  For some people, they experience the energy boost much quicker than I did.  Turned out that I actually needed extra testosterone, so when I received that, my energy level increase dramatically.  Well, by July I finally had plenty of energy to exercise! And it gave me the self co2013 01 24 21 52 25 31 169x300 Is Hormone Replacement Therapy Right for You?ntrol to diet and count calories.

So far I’ve lost 29 pounds,(another 30 to go) and I believe the hormone pellets helped my body and mind feel good enough to finally be able do it.  Now I don’t know how I managed for the last 10 years without them.  For me, they have been a lifesaver!!!

Here are two websites where you find more information on these hormone pellets and a list of the doctors that do the procedure:      or
