I have to tell you that when someone offers you something that sounds too good to be true, it very often is! Let’s take the case of pellet therapy. Pellets that offer estrogen and testosterone, and are supplemented with progesterone- in either a topical cream or even a capsule, can be a balanced approach IF the woman’s hormone levels are checked prior to the pellet implant and that is the therapy of choice by that client and her practitioner to balance the woman’s hormone levels. Implanting just testosterone pellets alone, while ignoring the need for estrogen and progesterone, in my opinion, doesn’t make sense. How is that balanced hormone replacement therapy? When these pellets are pumped into the woman’s body every 3 months-sometimes checking levels and sometimes not-scares me. Too much testosterone can make women aggressive and mean; and over time even change the woman’s facial appearance as it begins to take on masculine features! The moral of the story is to do your homework before engaging in any type of hormone replacement therapy. Read, research and ask the tough questions. If something sounds too good to be true-buyer beware!
