Are bioidentical hormone pellet implants safe and effective?

Thank you for your question. Hormone Therapy pellets for women are not approved by the FDA, so it’s not something that a physician would recommend for women. See your women’s health physician for a hormone therapy that is FDA approved and safe for you to take.

All My Best,
