Female Pellet Therapy
Hormones act as the messengers of the body. They deliver complex and vital signals between the brain and the body’s systems that facilitate everything from healing and recovery to mood and sexual health. To look and feel your best, your body needs the right balance of hormones; without it, the body begins to function less efficiently and becomes more vulnerable to the effects of aging or other external factors like stress and medication.
Women naturally experience greater fluctuations and changes in hormones throughout their lives as they move through stages like menstruation, pregnancy and childbirth, perimenopause, and menopause. As women age, however, estrogen—and hormone production in general—begins to decline, resulting in hormone levels that aren’t just fluctuating, they become imbalanced. Low estrogen and hormone imbalances can lead to hot flashes, weight gain, low libido, vaginal dryness, and sleep problems.
At Tulsa Men’s Clinic, we know that hormone deficiencies and imbalances do more than affect your body; they can impact how you feel about yourself and your relationship with others. That’s why we’re proud to be an authorized provider of female pellet therapy, a proven, all-natural method of replacing and balancing hormones that effectively returns your body to its optimal function and helps both you and your partner get more out of life.
How Hormone Replacement Can Improve Sexual Health
By replacing the hormones your body is no longer producing—especially the sex hormones estradiol, progesterone, and testosterone—female pellet therapy can help bring your hormone levels back to the proper balanced levels, so you can enjoy:
- More energy
- Better sleep
- Improved libido and sex drive
- Weight regulation
- Improved mental health, mood, and mental health
- Less or even no hot flashes
- Improved bone density
Female pellet therapy from Tulsa Men’s Clinic uses bioidentical hormones that are placed via a small rice-sized pellet inserted into an area of fatty tissue, such as the hip. Bioidentical hormones are derived from plant-based sources and have the same chemical structure as those naturally produced by the body.
Subcutaneous pellets are a preferred method of delivering hormone replacement because, unlike creams, pills, or patches, pellets deliver a more gradual and consistent level of hormones directly into the bloodstream. This helps avoid the fluctuations and changes seen in the liver that tend to occur with oral therapy and reduces the production of increased clotting factors, making it safer and more effective than other types of hormone replacement therapy.
The Female pellet procedure
Before receiving female pellet therapy, you will undergo an initial consultation, during which we’ll conduct comprehensive labs to check your hormone levels for deficiencies and assess your general wellness. The hormone system is incredibly sensitive with multiple interactions between different hormones, and optimal results depend on proper dosage and application.
While other pellet practices focus only on the sex hormones, Tulsa Men’s Clinic addresses your hormone system holistically, considering how all your hormones influence each other and designing a customized treatment plan with the proper dosage to produce long-term stability throughout the entire body. We’ll evaluate all of the factors that impact your hormones, including adrenal health, stress response, insulin and blood sugar control, and thyroid health to make sure your pellet therapy is tailored to your unique needs.
On the day of your appointment, we will sanitize the insertion area and make a tiny, nearly invisible incision, into which we will place the hormone pellet. The incision will be closed with a dissolvable suture and covered with a bandage. As soon as the pellet is inserted, the body will start to absorb it, delivering a steady stream of the hormones it’s been missing.
While there is no downtime or recovery period after the procedure, you will be advised to avoid lower body workouts for the first few days to avoid disrupting the pellet, as well as keep the site as dry as possible.

Who is a good candidate for female pellet therapy?
Not every woman who is experiencing hormone imbalances is a candidate for female pellet therapy, so the physicians at Tulsa Men’s Clinic will conduct an in-depth and thorough health and medical assessment prior to recommending it. However, many women are, and you may be a good candidate for female pellet therapy if you are experiencing:
- Menopause symptoms that are disrupting your life
- Decreased libido, low interest in sex, or even painful or uncomfortable sex
- Extreme PMS symptoms
- Low bone density
- Other hormone-related symptoms that are affecting your mood, mental health, sleep, energy, and/or weight
- A sudden change in reproductive health
- Menopause at an early age, such as before or in your mid-40s
Female pellet therapy can be an effective solution whether you’ve never had any form of hormone replacement therapy before, or if you have had it before and weren’t satisfied with the results.
How long do the results of female pellet therapy last?
Once you begin treatment and you start to feel the effects of balanced hormones, you’ll enjoy the benefits of hormone stability for three to six months. Some patients will require earlier follow-up appointments because their bodies use the hormones in the pellets faster; factors like body metabolism, exercising, and periods of high stress will all cause the body to absorb the pellet hormones sooner.
What causes hormone imbalance in women?
While hormone imbalance is most often associated with menopause, women experience fluctuating hormones their entire life, with hormone production beginning to decline entirely with age. Hormone imbalances can also occur as a result of:
- Thyroid disorder
- Metabolic syndrome
- Adrenal fatigue
