STEP 1: IN ORDER TO IDENTIFY WHETHER YOU ARE A CANDIDATE FOR TREATMENT WE WILL NEED THE FOLLOWING: Men: Blood Work including a current Prostate exam. Women: Blood Work and a current Mammogram and Pap Smear exam NOTE: If necessary, we will provide you with the appropriate Lab Orders
STEP 2: PHYSICIANS ASSESSMENT Based on the results of your blood work and exams, the doctor will assess your need for our treatment. If so, custom compounded pellets will be prepared to address your individual hormone needs.
STEP 3: IN-OFFICE PELLET INSERTION An appointment for a simple in-office pellet insertion will be scheduled. The insertion of pellets is a simple, relatively painless procedure done under local anesthesia. It takes typically takes 30-45 minutes and is performed by a physician. Your custom compounded pellets are inserted through a very small incision (4mm) just under the skin on the lower back.
STEP 4: UNDERGOING HORMONE THERAPY The SottoPelle Natural Hormone Pellet will then be activated by your body's activity, releasing Bio-Identical Hormones (Hormones with the same chemical structure as in your body). You will feel the effects gradually within the span of 6 weeks.
STEP 5: YOUR SIX WEEK FOLLOW-UP At six weeks during the course of your therapy we will contact you to survey your hormone therapy results, based on how you feel we will be able to tell if treatment is progressing well or may need to be adjusted. If adjustments are needed to the compound we will schedule an appointment at your convenience. CONTINUED THERAPY With ideal therapy women can expect a consistent release of bio-identical hormones to last for 3-4 months, Men can expect 4-5 months. We highly recommend that you contact us prior to the end of your therapy treatment cycle to insure you receive continuous results. We are grateful you have chosen to open the doors to a balanced and scientific approach to health.
