Hormone replacement, administered through pellet implants, was used with great success in the U.S., Europe and Australia since 1938. In fact, pellets were the popular mode of hormone administration in the U.S. until the 1970s, when oral and topical commercial products were developed. While the demand for pellets diminished in the U.S., pellets continued to be a common method of hormone administration throughout Europe and Australia. In the last 10 years, health professionals have improved this process and attained a better knowledge of the benefits of pellet implants for hormone replacement. These key improvements have increased the popularity of hormone pellet administration in the U.S. once again.
Greater than 70 years of research illustrates the benefits of pellet implants for the administration of hormones in both women and men.
