I recommend you check into bioidentical hormone pellets. These are small pellets of either estrogen or testosterone that get placed under the skin of your hip by a doctor that specializes in them. They don't have the highs and lows of creams, patches and pills. They bypass the liver when metabolized.
I've had them 4 years and have never been happier. I started getting them every three months, now I go about every 4-5 months.
I have been on the bioidentical hormone creams for 3 years. They have been wonderful. I first had a saliva test to see what I needed and then a pharmacy in my area compounded what I needed. I use an estrogen patch, testosterone and progestorone cream. I first read Suzanne Summers book on bioidentical hormones. It was very helpful.
Do you know if they have progesterone in these pellets? And do you know if insurance will cover these and the creams?
Thanks so much
I don't know about the pellets. Insurance does pay for mine.
There are no pellets for progesterone.
I have BCBS of NC. Insurance pays all about $35 for each insert. In the beginning I got an insert every 3 months. Now I get them between 4-5 months. But I don't know if all insurance will pay.
