The Latest & Safest: Testosterone Pellets
In the past, estrogen was the most commonly used treatment for women, but it turns out they were missing a key hormone. Moving forward, testosterone has been proven to safely help women increase energy, sleep better and lose weight — all while cutting the risk of breast cancer and heart disease. You may have heard confusing information on how to manage menopausal or pre-menopausal symptoms.
At Allure Medical, we offer a newer approach to treating menopause symptoms that involves inserting a tiny pellet of human identical hormone (the size of a grain of rice) under your skin. The pellet breaks down and releases a natural hormone (testosterone) over a period of about 3-4 months. Then the process is repeated.
Reduce Breast Cancer
You can stop taking hormone pills that are increasing your risk of breast cancer. With testosterone pellets, you can actually reduce the incidence of breast cancer by over 50%.

Allure Medical’s very own Dr. Charles Mok, wrote the book, Testosterone: Strong Enough for a Man, Made for a Woman. He discusses why testosterone therapy for women is a proven treatment for menopause. The book takes you on a journey that chronicles the start of hormone replacement therapy in the 1940’s and through the flawed Women’s Health Initiative in 2002 which dissuaded millions of women from seeking treatment.

Are There Any Risks?
In the largest clinical study with this hormone pellet, there were no medication-related adverse effects (over a 5 year treatment period involving over 1,200 women).
Will it hurt?
You will need a blood test, and of course, that involves drawing blood but the insertion of the pellet involves less discomfort than the blood test.
