Menopause Q & A

What is menopause?

Perimenopause is the transitional period into menopause. It also can cause significant fluctuations in hormone levels.

Hormone replacement therapy

Dr. Hormone MD provides Pellecome™ and other bioidentical hormone replacement treatments to boost estrogen, progesterone, and other hormones within your body to optimize the way it functions. The practice provides hormones in the form of oral troches, patches, and pellets.

When receiving hormone pellets, your specialist numbs the treatment area and makes a tiny incision. The pellets are the size of a grain of rice and are inserted underneath the skin near your upper buttocks. They close the incisions carefully to eliminate the chance of visible scarring.

What can I expect after hormone replacement therapy?

During the next few weeks and months following hormone replacement therapy, you can expect to feel better and look younger. After an initial consultation with your Dr. Hormone MD provider, feel free to schedule follow-up visits via telehealth.
