BHRT Pellet Implants

One of the best forms of bio-identical hormone therapy for both men and women is the pellet implant. Pellet implant therapy offers consistent 3-4 month optimal hormone levels for individuals undergoing bio-identical hormone replacement. 

You can age healthier and live happier with hormone replacement therapy. It’s more convenient than ever with a pellet implant. No injections or creams – everything is time-released from the implantable pellet. 

Hormone pellet therapy was first used in 1938. There is a long and safe history with bio-identical hormone replacement using pellet implants.

What is Hormone Therapy?

We use an individualized approach to hormone replacement therapy. With bio-identical hormone therapy, we aim to optimize a person’s hormone levels to their upper physiological levels. Bio-identical hormones are identical at the molecular level to your own hormones. When hormone levels are lower than optimal, the body is operating in a suboptimal state (hormone deficiency). We use hormone replacement therapy to optimize your hormone levels, so your body functions better. Physiological results begin to occur within days following treatment.

Benefit of Balanced Hormones

Balanced hormones help at ensuring we have what we need for a healthier more active life. As we age, our hormone levels decline. Some individuals experience a faster-than-normal decline. Hormone optimization can assist us with age-related disease prevention such as sarcopenia, osteoporosis, and muscle wasting. Bio-identical hormones contain the exact same molecular structure as our natural hormones, so this aids in preventing any unwanted side effects experienced from synthetic hormones developed and patented by big pharmaceutical companies.

Hormone Pellet History

Bio-identical hormone pellet implants

Data supports that hormone replacement with pellet implants is an effective method to deliver bio-identical hormone replacement in both men and women. Pellets are implanted under the skin by a physician. The procedure takes about 20 minutes. Within days, consistent, continuous release of small physiologic doses of hormones occurs. No injections and no creams to worry about. 

The pellet normally lasts 3-4 months. Pellet implants have been used since 1938, and are proven to be safe and effective. With pellets, patients rarely need to worry about possible side effects often seen with injections, creams, and patches.


Although pellets have been around since the 1930s, they lost popularity during the 1970s because of the larger appeal of newly invented “big pharma” synthetic oral hormones. As negative side effects were encountered with synthetic oral hormones, bio-identical hormone pellets have made a comeback along with other natural bio-identical hormone therapies. Hormones from pellets are identical in molecular structure to those naturally occurring in the body.

Blood Testing for New Patients

If this is your first time inquiring about bio-identical hormone pellets, you will need to get a blood test. For blood testing, we offer two options. Inside our clinic or at a lab near you. We offer lab support in Costa Rica and in the United States. If you are in Costa Rica, email us and we can create a lab requisition for you. This allows you to get the proper bio-markers testing when you get your blood test.

If you are in the United States and you prefer to get your blood test in advance to visit our clinic, please go to our affiliate [DirectLabs Test Link] and order the Anti-Aging Blood panel for the appropriate gender.

Hormone Pellet Doses

The pellet doses for each implant procedure are based on the individual patient’s symptoms, baseline laboratory data, age, body weight, percent body fat, and activity level.

Hormones and Pellets Information

Did you know it’s estimated that after age 30, most of us lose 5-10% of our hormone production each year. By restoring your hormones to their normal upper physiological levels, you can experience a number of physical and mental improvements. 

  • Improve energy levels
  • Weight Loss and increased metabolism
  • Improvement in mental clarity
  • Improved quality of life (QoL)
