Bioidentical Hormone Pellet Therapy

Bioidentical hormone pellet therapy is a well-researched method of delivering hormones to your body. Bioidentical Hormone Specilaist, Stephanie Gray, DNP in Linn County offers this method by painlessly inserting a small bioidentical hormone pellet, about the size of a grain of rice, under your skin. The procedure is less painful than having your blood drawn. The hormones in the pellets provided by Stephanie Gray are bioidentical, which means that they are the exact molecular match to the hormones produced by your body. These bioidentical hormone pellets typically consist of either estradiol or testosterone.

Stephanie Gray, DNP uses hormone pellets that are manufactured by special compounding pharmacies. The ingredients, estradiol or testosterone, are pharmaceutical grade quality. Stephanie Gray, DNP’s bioidentical hormone pellet therapy can be used to relieve the symptoms of menopause, perimenopause and andropause, to name just a few hormone related conditions that respond well to Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy. Bioidentical hormone pellet therapy slowly releases hormones into the bloodstream – similar to the way hormones are released by the ovaries and testes.

Many patients don’t do well on any other form of hormone therapy except for under the skin bioidentical hormone pellet therapy.

Are you a candidate for hormone replacement therapy?
Symptoms may vary widely from depression and anxiety to night sweats, sleeplessness, fatigue and even low libido. Your blood tests will determine your hormone levels. Your provider will combine your labs with symptoms and once it’s determined that you’re a candidate, we will schedule an appointment for insertion of the hormones.
Why Hormone Replacement?
