Bioidentical Hormone Pellets Q&A

What causes hormone imbalances?

A hormone imbalance can occur at any age, but they often strike as you age. Women experience a natural reduction in the production of the primary sex hormones, estrogen and progesterone, as they move toward menopause. You may also experience hormone changes due to stress, pregnancy (and the postnatal period), and certain medical conditions. You might also experience hormone imbalances due to a poor diet, being overweight or obese, and exposure to toxins.

What are the symptoms of a hormone imbalance?

You notice hormone imbalances as uncomfortable symptoms. These include:

  • Hot flashes and night sweats
  • Vaginal dryness and painful intercourse
  • Reduced libido
  • Sleep disturbances
  • Depression
  • Trouble concentrating and poor memory


You may also have issues such as frequent fatigue, muscle loss, fat gain, and a feeling of being “off” as a result of hormone imbalances.

What is bioidentical hormone pellet therapy?

Bioidentical hormone pellet therapy offers a way to restore your optimal hormone levels. At LUXE Medical Spa, Dr. Shipes uses SottoPelle® bioidentical hormones that are made by compressing natural hormones into very small pellets. The pellets contain no binding agents or chemicals, so they are the purest bioidentical hormone pellets available on the market.

The ingredients for these hormones come from natural plants and identically match the biological makeup of the hormones your body produces. As a result, your body can effectively process and use them.

What are the benefits of bioidentical hormone therapy?

Bioidentical hormones are all natural. When applied via pellet, you get a continuous supply of hormones, so you absorb them optimally. The pellets release the hormones based on the demands of your body at a particular time. They’re biologically available whenever you need them.

The hormones are completely safe and effective in reducing uncomfortable symptoms. Bioidentical hormone pellet therapy can help you feel like yourself again.

How are bioidentical hormone pellets administered?

In a simple in-office procedure, Dr. Shipes inserts the pellets under your skin. You’ll get a mild local anesthetic to make the process painless.

The pellet therapy lasts from four to six months, and sometimes longer. You may have some breast tenderness a few weeks following the first pellet treatment, but this resolves within a short time.
