Breast cancer survivors have many challenges. One of them should not be suffering with menopausal symptoms. Unlike estrogen and progesterone, testosterone may be safely administered to breast cancer survivors without the fear of stimulating breast cancer. Actually, in 1938 the first testosterone pellets were placed in women with breast cancer as a form of treatment.

Testosterone For Women?
Some common symptoms of low testosterone are emotional issues (such as irritability, anxiety and depression), fatigue, muscle weakness, decreased muscle mass, decreased sex drive, insomnia, joint pain, muscle pain, loss of memory and focus. All these symptoms respond very well to testosterone replacement therapy.
When we hear the term “Low T” we immediately think of men and their sexual health. However, a certain level of testosterone in women is needed to maintain a healthy balance of mood, sex drive, energy and bone health.
Testosterone also supports the building and maintenance of muscle mass and allows exercise to be more beneficial. At Three Rivers Restorative Medicine, you can expect a personalized, customized approach to your health. Laboratory testing will be obtained before initiating any hormonal therapy, and levels will also be checked as therapy progresses to make sure the hormone levels are in the optimal range. If you are a candidate for testosterone pellet therapy, Dr. Wharton will review this option with you.

Side Effects of Testosterone Replacement Therapy?
There are not many results since the pellets are essentially reestablishing the hormones to physiologic levels. At the point when first beginning treatment, there will be a short change period. The most well-known side effects are generally mild and can include temporary breast or nipple tenderness, and temporary water weight gain.
Pellet Therapy Performed?
Before the pellet is placed, an area is chosen in the gluteal region, and is cleansed with antiseptic, then infiltrated with a buffered numbing solution. A small incision is made and the pellet is then inserted under the skin. The incision is closed with steri-strips and heals very quickly. Estrogen pellets can also be placed in a similar manner and even at the same time as the testosterone pellets. The pellets dissolve very slowly and maintain a very constant level of hormones for three months. This means no daily dosing of medication, and no up and down variation in the hormone levels. Quite simply it’s the absolute best method to deliver bio-identical hormones.Dr. Keith Wharton will work with you to help you decide on the best form of treatment in your special circumstance.
