I have tried several types of hormone replacement therapy and I still have severe menopausal symptoms. Is this just me or do other women have this problem?                                                                                                                             office-picture-suzanne

It’s not you. While most menopausal women do well while using the routine methods of hormone replacement 10% to 20% experience persistent life-altering menopausal symptoms unresponsive to their prescribed therapy. It happens more often in women who have had a hysterectomy irrespective whether the ovaries have been removed. However it can and does occur following a natural menopause.

“My desire for sex is completely gone and this is causing problems in my relationship with my partner. Is this because of my menopause, or is it a normal part of aging?”

It is not not a normal part of aging. If you were sexual before your menopause you can be sexual again. An optimal program of hormone replacement therapy will restore your sexuality.

I would really like to feel like myself again. Will this really help?

Subcutaneous implantation of hormone pellets may be the treatment of choice for you. This hormone replacement option is almost always successful in restoring, libido, sexuality, quality of life and sense of well being. The pellets used are derived from plant source and contain estradiol. This form of estrogen is biologically identical to the natural estrogen produced by the ovary. Usually patients who have lost their libido are testosterone deficient and a pellet containing testosterone will be implanted as well. Testosterone is a naturally occurring female hormone and is the hormone most closely related to sex drive, energy levels and the maintenance of muscle mass. This rarely fails to relieve even longstanding menopausal symptoms, or restore sexuality.

How is this done?

The procedure is performed in the physician’s office with a minimum of discomfort and takes only a few minutes. A small amount of local anesthesia is injected into the area where the hormone pellets are to be placed, usually the buttock. The hormone pellets are then inserted into the subcutaneous tissue through an instrument designed for this purpose. Pressure is applied to the site for 5-10 minutes. No sutures are required as the actual incision is very small. As with any other surgical procedure, postoperative infection, or bleeding is possible but uncommon. The pellets, which contain the biologically identical form of natural estrogen produced by the ovary are absorbed into the blood stream producing hormone levels that are physiologic and remain relatively constant day-to-day.  The hormones are absorbed slowly directly into the bloodstream and mimics natural ovarian secretion. Depending on the metabolism of the individual and the number of pellets implanted they last from 3-5 months and the procedure is repeated at that time.

I have never heard of this method of hormone replacement, is it something new?

Actually, it has been available in the United States and other countries for over 50 years. In general, it is offered by physicians who specialize in menopausal issues. This method of hormone replacement was developed by Dr. Robert B. Greenblatt, of the Medical College of Georgia, a pioneer in menopausal medicine and a founder of the International Menopause Society.

Have you used this method in your patients?

I have offered this method of hormone replacement to my patients for over 30 years. It is the most successful treatment for decreased sexuality and persistent menopausal symptoms even when the problems have existed for several years and have been unresponsive to other therapies. It has been a wonderful hormone replacement option for my patients, capable of restoring them to a previous quality of life, sexuality and intimacy.
