Hormone pellet therapy for women in the Henderson/Las Vegas/Summerlin area: Who should get a testosterone pellet?

After over 15 years of using testosterone replacement in women, finally more women are familiar with the use of testosterone. As you can imagine, when I started offering this revolutionary therapy to women, I was not well received by many of my colleagues. Testosterone has long been thought of as a male hormone, however it is measurable in women. Testosterone functions in women in many of the same ways as men. Testosterone can help the brain to work better and improve cognitive function when the dose is optimized. It is well studied in the medical literature as a treatment option to build bone to reverse and/or decrease the risk for osteopenia and osteoporosis, especially when used with estradiol.

We all want to have beautiful skin and testosterone over time will improve the appearance of skin and can even give it a more youthful appearance. I built my practice looking for women who were struggling with loss of sexual drive. Testosterone can significantly improve sexual desire. We have seen several women become orgasmic again and others for the very first time in their lives! Many of our patients experience “G-spot contractions” with pellet therapy, wherein they feel a gentle tugging sensation in the area of the G-spot with arousal and/or stimulation. Testosterone pellets can be used alone or with estrogen pellets and they are easily implanted under the skin with local anesthesia. They provide a consistent release of hormone over several months. Many women feel that their overall sense of wellbeing is improved after going on testosterone hormone pellets.

Signs and symptoms of low testosterone in women

The signs and symptoms of testosterone deficiency in women are often not recognized by clinicians. Frequently, symptoms that women complain about are considered to be related to a mood disorder such as anxiety and/or depression. Often the diagnosis of depression is made and women are unfortunately prescribed antidepressants (which further decreases interest in sex), sleeping pills and anxiety medication, such as Xanax, which can be addictive. Women who are low on testosterone may dissociate themselves from their partner as it relates to sex and intimacy. Cognitive function may decline and women experience “brain fog” with difficulty in remembering things and/or poor ability to concentrate. Look at the Testosterone Deficiency Questionnaire to help determine if you might be a candidate for Testosterone Replacement Therapy.

Testosterone Deficiency Questionnaire

1. Do you have a decrease in libido or sex drive?
2. Are you have difficulty focusing during intercourse? (i.e. brain drifting and looking at the
clock, thinking about menial tasks instead of actually enjoying sex)
3. Are you experiencing hot flashes and or night sweats?
4. Are you having problems falling asleep or staying asleep or both?
5. Do you feel physically and mentally exhausted?
6. Are you feeling a slightly depressed mood with no specific reason or cause?
7. Are you more irritable or do you cry very easily?
8. Are you experiencing vaginal dryness?
9. Do you have less sensitivity in your vulva and/or breast nipples?
10. Are you having anxiety or feeling heart discomfort with palpitations?
11. Are you experiencing reduced muscular and physical strength?
12. Are you experiencing joint and muscular pain?
