Medical Doctor Q&A's
Name: Cindy

I wonder if I am a candidate for pellet implants. 57 years old, limited success with NHRT, is there a reason not to try it. Would I still need oral progesterone?
I want testosterone with limited side effects. I felt best with Estratest in the past, but want natural hormones.

If you have had limited success with proper doses of bioidentical estrogen and progesterone, you could be a candidate for pellet implants. However, the hormones previously tried should have been by a nonoral method such as sublingual tablets.
In that case pellet implants can be successful. The pellets must be administrated by a physician familiar with their use and experienced in implanting them. You will need supplemental progesterone preferably taken by the sublingual route. I certainly would not recommend use of
Estratest pills.
