Bio-Identical Hormones are made from natural, plant-derived compounds that have the same molecular structure as those made by the human body. Unlike synthetic hormones, our bodies can readily recognize and metabolize these natural compounds.
At Desert Sierra Medical we believe no one treatment is right for everyone, which is why we work with our patients on an individualized basis to develop a customized therapy. In doing so, we are able to offer our patients as many options as possible for their Hormone Replacement Therapy route of administration.
Our treatment options include:
- • Compounded Capsules
- • Creams
- • Lozenges (troches)
- • Injections
- • Pellet Insertion Therapy
Capsules, Creams and Lozenges
These plant-derived compounds are available in the form of a capsule, a cream or lozenges. Prescriptions, based on your blood analysis, are written by our medical providers. Many local compounding pharmacies are available to fill these prescriptions.
Injections are another form of administration, again determined by lab analysis.

Pellet Insertion Therapy is a highly effective form of HRT, or hormone replacement therapy. Through blood work and diagnostic analysis our medical providers will determine the correct dosage specific to your body. Small pellets, the size of a grain of rice, are inserted underneath the skin, allowing for continuous delivery of hormones, typically lasting 4 to 6 months.
