What are Hormone Pellets?
Like we said above, there are many ways to deliver hormones to the body. Our preferred method is via pellets. Pellet therapy involves injecting a prescribed number of pellets, that are about the size of a grain of rice, into the fatty tissue under your skin. These tiny pellets contain hormones that closely resemble the existing hormones in your body—hence the name “bio-identical.”
The pellets continuously release hormones into your body via the bloodstream and are released in correlation to your cardiac output. So, when you are physical, under stress, or other activities that increase your heart rate will release hormones, much like your body naturally would if your hormones were in balance.
Here are some important quick facts about our hormone pellets:
- The pellets are made of hormones, specifically estradiol or testosterone, and are made by licensed pharmacists.
- Pellets are inserted in a quick and painless procedure that only requires local anesthesia.
- A small incision will be made in your hip or abdominal wall to insert the pellet.
- The effects of the pellets are not permanent, lasting 3-5 months for women and 5-6 months for men.
- Patients will need routine follow-up with their pellet provider to schedule future insertions, which keep your hormones in balance.
Seems simple enough right? Now that you understand exactly what the pellets are, let’s take a look at how they work and how hormone therapy with pellets can benefit you.
Who is Pellet Therapy For?
Bio-Identical Pellet Therapy is for men and women who have noticed changes in the way they feel. We start we a blood test and a comprehensive consultation with the Practitioner. We understand hormone imbalances does not have a “one size fits all” solution as each human body is different and their level of hormones are too!
BHRT with pellets is one of the most effective approaches to restoring hormonal balance and addressing hormone deficiencies. Hormonal imbalances cause many symptoms, including:
- Hair loss
- Mood swings and irritability
- Low libido
- Weight gain
And more! In fact, you can find more information on symptoms of hormonal imbalance that are specific to men and women. If you can identify with any of the symptoms above you should look into having your hormones tested. Leaving hormonal imbalance unaddressed for too long could lead to serious health consequences.

The EvexiPEL method has had success in helping hundreds of patients find balance and reclaim their health. During your consultation, our hormone specialists will work with you to pinpoint the root cause of your symptoms and then adapt a completely customized treatment plan around your needs and goals.
While we do believe that pellet therapy is the best approach to restoring hormonal balance, we may also spot an opportunity to implement other treatment methods like detoxification or the addition of nutritional supplements to further enhance your hormone treatment.
The materials used in our pellets are all-natural and derived from plant sources. Unfortunately, many other hormone pellet providers manufacture synthetic hormones that contain harmful chemicals and additives, like horse urine. At EVEXIAS we only utilize pellets that were compounded by federally qualified pharmacists.
