If you’re feeling run down, struggling to lose weight, or having trouble sleeping, you could be suffering from a hormone imbalance. Dr. Linda Evans, with our team at Premiere Center for Health and Wellness in Cincinnati, OH, offers bioequivalent hormone pellets which can help restore your hormones to their natural balance. This can help you feel like yourself again and get your life back on track.
How Soon Do You Get Results From Hormone Pellets?
In general, most people begin to see some results within two to four weeks of starting hormone therapy. However, there are a few different factors that can influence how soon you see results from hormone therapy. First, the dose of hormones you receive will be a factor. If you receive a higher dose of hormones, you may see results more quickly than if you receive a lower dose.
Second, your individual response to the hormones will be a factor. Some people respond more quickly to hormone pellet therapy than others. Finally, the reason you are undergoing hormone therapy will be a factor. For example, if you are undergoing hormone therapy to treat hot flashes, you may see results more quickly than if you are undergoing therapy for osteoporosis.
SottoPelle Hormone Therapy
SottoPelle hormone therapy is a pellet-based therapy that uses hormones that are equivalent to the ones produced naturally by your body. The pellets are made from a plant-based material and are slowly released into your system, providing a steady stream of hormones that help to balance your hormone levels and relieve symptoms.
Why Do We Use SottoPelle Hormone Therapy?
One thing that sets SottoPelle apart from other hormone therapy options is the fact that it was developed by Dr. Tula, who is a leading authority on hormones and hormone replacement therapy. Another reason why we love SottoPelle is that it is an all-natural treatment option.
Unlike other hormone therapies that use synthetic hormones, SottoPelle uses hormones that are identical to the ones produced naturally by your body. This makes it a safe and effective treatment option for both men and women.
What Hormones Are Used in SottoPelle Pellets?
SottoPelle hormone pellet therapy uses subdermal implants to deliver hormones into your system. The estradiol and testosterone hormones found in SottoPelle pellets can help alleviate or treat common conditions associated with a hormonal imbalance such as menopause, hair loss, weight gain, and low sex drive. One of the main benefits of SottoPelle pellets is that they can help you avoid the rollercoaster effect that can come with other hormone therapy methods.
Because SottoPelle pellets release small, consistent doses of hormones into your system over time, you won’t have to worry about fluctuating hormone levels that can cause mood swings and other side effects. Additionally, SottoPelle pellets are designed to last for 4-6 months before they need to be replaced, so you won’t have to think about your hormone therapy every day or week like you would with other methods.
What Are Hormone Pellets Used For?
Menopause transition usually occurs around age 51, but it can happen earlier or later depending on various factors. Once a woman goes 12 months without a period, she is officially in menopause. The most common symptom of menopause is hot flashes, which are sudden feelings of warmth that can include sweating and a rapid heart rate.
Hot flashes typically last between two and five minutes, but they can occur several times a day or just a few times per week. Other common symptoms include night sweats, sleep problems, vaginal dryness, mood swings, joint pain, weight gain, and thinning hair.
How Is Menopause Treated?
Bioequivalent hormone replacement therapy can help to relieve these symptoms by replacing the hormones that are no longer being produced by the ovaries. Studies have shown that pellet therapy is an effective way to relieve menopausal symptoms and improve quality of life. And for many women, pellet therapy provides a safe and convenient alternative to traditional HRT.
2. Mood Changes
Do you ever feel like your mood is all over the place? You could be feeling great one minute and then suddenly feel really down the next. Or maybe you’re constantly feeling irritable and on edge. If this sounds familiar, it could be because of a hormonal imbalance.
Hormones play a big role in regulating our mood, so it’s not surprising that imbalances can lead to mood changes. The most common hormones that can cause mood changes are estrogen, progesterone, testosterone, and thyroid hormones.
Estrogen is a hormone that is produced by the ovaries and is responsible for regulating the menstrual cycle. Estrogen levels fluctuate throughout the menstrual cycle, with levels rising during ovulation and falling during menstruation. These fluctuations can cause symptoms like fatigue, bloating, breast tenderness, and mood swings.
Progesterone is another hormone that is produced by the ovaries and is responsible for preparing the lining of the uterus for pregnancy. Progesterone levels also fluctuate throughout the menstrual cycle, rising after ovulation and falling during menstruation. These fluctuations can cause symptoms like breast tenderness, fatigue, and mood swings.
Testosterone is a hormone that is produced by the testicles and is responsible for regulating muscle mass, bone density, and sex drive. Testosterone levels usually peak in the morning and decline throughout the day. Low testosterone levels can cause symptoms like fatigue, low sex drive, muscle weakness, and mood swings
Thyroid hormones are produced by the thyroid gland and are responsible for regulating metabolism among other functions. Thyroid hormone levels can fluctuate due to stress, diet, or other factors. Low thyroid hormone levels can cause mood swings.
3. Low Sex Drive
About 34% of women and 15% of men report having a low sex drive. While there can be many causes of low libido, a hormonal imbalance is often to blame. Testosterone is the hormone most closely associated with sexual desire in men. Testosterone plays a vital role in sexual function by influencing libido, erectile function, and orgasms. However, testosterone levels vary widely from person to person and decrease with age.
Estrogen helps to maintain vaginal lubrication and elasticity, both of which are important for comfortable intercourse. Estrogen levels also fluctuate throughout a woman’s lifetime, declining during menopause and increasing during pregnancy. During times of stress or anxiety, the body produces cortisol instead of other hormones like testosterone or estrogen. This can also lead to a decrease in libido. If a hormonal imbalance is to blame for your low sex drive, hormone therapy may be an effective treatment option.
4. Unexplained Weight Gain
There are three main hormones that contribute to weight gain: insulin, cortisol, and estrogen. When blood sugar levels are high, insulin is released from the pancreas in order to bring the levels back down. However, insulin also has another effect on the body: it promotes the storage of fat. High insulin levels can cause the body to store glucose as fat, rather than using it for energy. Therefore, people who have high insulin levels may notice an increase in weight.
Cortisol hormone is released in response to stress, but it also plays a role in regulating metabolism and storing fat. When cortisol levels are high, your body is in “fight or flight” mode and more likely to store fat instead of burning it off. Over time, high cortisol levels can lead to weight gain, especially around the midsection. In addition, when estrogen levels are too high relative to other hormones like progesterone, it can lead to weight gain.
Acne is caused by a wide range of factors, but hormones are one of the main culprits. When hormone levels are out of balance, it can trigger excess oil production, which can lead to clogged pores and breakouts.
Androgens are male hormones that are present in both men and women. They play a role in regulating oil production and hair growth. An increase in androgens can lead to an increase in sebum (oil) production, which can clog pores and lead to breakouts. In women, androgen levels typically spike during puberty, menstruation, pregnancy, and menopause.
