Are Bio-Identical Estrogen Pellets Superior to Estrogen Cream?

Bio Identical Estrogen Pellets

Estrogen pellets are one form of bio-identical hormones.  The pellets are the size of a grain of rice.  These pellets are placed under the skin by a physician, and slowly release estrogen into your body for a period of 3-4 months.  Estrogen pellets are made in a compounding pharmacy based on your individual needs, which your physician will determine with blood work.

Low estrogen levels can cause decreased libido, depression, fatigue, headaches, and vaginal dryness among other symptoms.  Other forms of estrogen replacement include bio-identical creams, skin patches, and oral medications.  Many women are able to achieve significant improvement in their symptoms with the use of bio-identical estrogen therapy.
