How is bioidentical hormone replacement therapy administered?
There are a variety of ways bioidentical hormones can be administered. Our preferred method, most effective, and requiring the least amount of maintenance is bioidentical hormone pellets. This is a small pellet (about the size of a grain of rice) inserted into fatty tissue. The pellet releases the right amount of hormone into your system based on cardiovascular triggers, so you get exactly what you need, when you need it. Other methods include twice weekly injections, oral troches, and topical creams. However, the effectiveness of the oral and topical methods are less and require the most amount of maintenance.

The risks of bioidentical HRT can vary based on your age, gender, and type of hormones you're taking. Most side effects are rare, the most common being irritation at the injection or pellet insertion site if taking those administration approaches.
