Hormone Pellets

Is anybody on the hormone pellets? I am on them now but it seems like this time around it hasnt worked as well and as long as it did the time before. If you are on the hormone pellets do you like them? I am thinking about going back on the patch and testosterone cream again.

Re: Hormone Pellets

Hi, I have been on the pellets for about 16 months. My doctor warned me that subsequent insertions will likely not give me the "wow"effect that the first one did, as the levels begin to even out. It is interesting--it really varies how long before I feel like I need another insertion. Sometimes I feel I need them again after 2 months, and other times I can go 4-5 months. So while it is an imperfect system (as opposed to having my ovaries) I overall am very happy and have no plans to stop. However, in my case, I was not able to absorb estrogen effectively via the patch, so my options are more limited.

Re: Hormone Pellets

Thank you for responding. I have noticed I havent had the wow affect like the first time I ever got them. This time the pellets have not lasted 4 months. And I am having hot flashes and cannot sleep at night. I called the doctor and they couldnt get me in to January 26th. So I guess I will have to wait till then to get anything done. But I am considering going back on the vivelle patch and the testosterone cream.
