When I was in my mid-thirties, I started having hot flashes and night sweats, along with irritability, body aches, decreased energy and low libido. I talked to my family doctor who suggested testosterone replacement therapy with bioidentical pellets.
I have been doing the therapy now for over 4 years and I am so glad I decided to do it! It has relieved all of my symptoms and I feel great again!
The procedure itself if easy and painless, and done right in the doctor’s office. My husband and I are both very satisfied with the results and we are so thankful that Dr. Weber offers this treatment option so close to home.
I plan to continue with the pellets as long as I can because I can’t imagine my life without them!

As a 60 year old mother and grandmother, I've always put others before myself, but after suffering with hot flashes, poor sleep, no libido, and extremem mood swings, irritability and depression for years, I finally decided it was time to take care of myself. I talked to my family doctor about my symptoms and he recommended hormone replacement therapy.
Initially, I tried a combination of estrogen and progesterone. And while my hot flashes and mood swings were somewhat better, I still felt down in the dumps. Then I found Prairieland Wellness Center!
Dr. Weber and his staff ran some bloodwork and found out that my hormones were still out of balance, so they recommended bioidentical pellet therapy with testosterone.
Since using the BHRT, my hot flashes and night sweats have completely stopped, my sleep has improved greatly, and my energy, sex drive and concentration are better than they have been in years! And although my insurance company doesn't pay for the therapy, I think it is worth every penny!
Every day I wonder what life would be like if I hadn't tried BHRT. I am so thankful to have found a true solution to my symptoms!

As a 52 year old grandma of two, I can honestly say I don't feel like a grandma! Or at least not the way I remember my Grandma being when she went through menopause.
I had a total hysterectomy when I was 39 years old and stayed on Premarin for my hormone replacement therapy for the next several years. Then my doctor recommended discontinuing it because of the possible long term side effects. For the next few years after that I dealt with hot flashes, night sweats, and changes in my mood. When I learned about the new excitement surrounding bioidentical hormone repalcement therapy via pellet implants I was eager to try it myself.
I have been receiving the pellets now for well over a year and plan to continue -- they are convenient, affordable, and most importantly, safe. I feel they are the key to why I feel virtually free of any menopausal symptoms.

I am a 62 year old male and for several months was feeling fatigued, slightly depressed and moody. I also had little to no sexual desire or the ability to perform sexually. Blood tests revealed low-T (testosterone). After trying the popular gel types of therapy and a variety of erectile dysfunction meds with little to no results, my doctor suggested I try the testosterone pellet therapy.
What a difference it has made! After only two weeks I felt like a different person, body aches were gone, emotional issues subsided and my energy levels increased greatly! My sex drive has also returned and now I have the ability to have an erection. This therapy has been a lifesaver for me, and I have and will continue to recommend it to anybody suffering with similar symptoms.

As a working nurse, mother, wife, and caregiver to many family members, I knew something in my life had to change for the better. For the last 5 years, I had become progressively more irritable, angry and tired, and as my mom told me, "You just aren't yourself anymore. You are no longer able to accept changes or be flexible without becoming upset." I was also having great difficulty sleeping well. My night sweats were causing huge interruptions in my sleep, which led to even more fatigue during the day, and they also affected my husband, who called me a "furnace" and slept as far away from me as possible.
Given all my symptoms, I decided to try BHRT. I had my first insertion of pellets in February and my life has changed significantly already! My mood is greatly improved, and I am not as irritable or as easily angered. While my night sweats are not completely gone, they have improved by at least 75%. I am also sleeping so much better and my husband isn't sleeping on the other side of the bed anymore. My energy level and concentration are both greatly improved. And the added bonus was the increased libido. In fact, my marriage has never been stronger, and I love feeling like newlyweds again after 10 years together.
The pellet insertion itself was easy and fast, with only minimal discomfort for a few days after the procedure. All in all, I would definitely recommend pellets to any person who is having similar problems. It has changed my life for the better, making me a happy person with a zest for life again!

I am currently a Registered Nurse and a recipient of bioidentical hormones. Like most people, I was skeptical about trying new things. I had come to a point in my life that I was struggling with keeping everything balanced. At the age of 36, I had a total hysterectomy due to medical reasons; this of course put me right into menopause. Even though I was prepared for the surgery, nothing could prepare me for menopause and the symptoms that I was about to experience following surgery. This was a life changing event. I still had young children to care for at home, and keeping up with their extra activities was often times a struggle for me because I lacked energy. My doctor put me on a hormone patch immediately following surgery to try to control my hot flashes, and while they kept my hot flashes afar, I still had poor sleep, decreased libido and difficulty remembering things as I once did.
After hearing and reading about bioidentical hormones, I felt that this was my best chance to get my symptoms under control. However, at the time, there were not any physicians close by that were inserting the pellets. That is until Prairieland Wellness Center was established. After having all of the labwork done, I was told I was a candidate for the pellets. I was nervous at first because I wasn’t sure how my body would react to the hormones but I knew I couldn’t continue down the current road, so I decided to proceed with the therapy. To my amazement the pellets have been a life changing experience for me and I plan to continue this therapy as long as I can. Thanks to the pellets I now have more energy, better sleep, increased libido, and less aches and pains.
I know there are many other young women out there that are suffering from the same symptoms I did that are too embarrassed to discuss their symptoms with their doctors, but I encourage you to call and give the bioidentical hormones a chance. You will forever be grateful that you took the leap of faith to get your life back.

All I have to say is, I finally got my MOJO back!

I cannot tell you enough how good I have felt since starting with the bio identical pellet implants. I didn’t realize how miserable I was until my family kept saying, “mom, you’re so crabby”, “how come you’re not funny and you don’t joke around anymore”. Then my oldest daughter made a poem with the letters in my name:
Y: You are very, very tired,
N: Not active anymore,
E: Eats and sleeps,
T: Today you are at work,
T: Tuesdays and Thursdays are your days off and you want to sleep, sleep, sleep,
E: Everyday you are tired.
After reading this, I realized that something needed to be done. That’s when I heard about the pellets. I couldn’t wait to try them. It took about 4 weeks and then all of a sudden, I felt like a new person. But I wasn’t the only one who noticed the change -- my family noticed too. My children said they were so happy to have me “back like I used to be”. You can’t imagine how hearing that made me feel. And my husband has noticed a big change too. It has made our relationship stronger and we have fun and laugh like we did when we were dating.
It has been about a year since I started the implants and I am pleased to say that since starting them I have more energy, I no longer get headaches, no more joint pain, and all together feel great. I highly recommend the pellet therapy!!!!

As a busy, working mother, I thought my sleeplessness, irritability, hot flashes and lack of concentration were due to the normal stressors of my job and life, and were just a part of aging. However, after finally having the necessary labs done, I realized that I may benefit from BHRT. Since having the pellets implanted, I am happy to say that I have not slept better in 20 years and that my hot flashes are very minimal after just one treatment. Thanks to this great treatment, I feel normal again.

I am a 49 year old woman and I received my first testosterone pellets on 12/06/2012. Prior to receiving the pellets I was tired all the time. I couldn’t concentrate, I was having hot flashes constantly, and I was having difficulty keeping my temper in check. I also had very little patience for anything or anyone. That’s when I heard about the pellets. I was curious to learn more, but was very reluctant to get them.
Then one Sunday after church, one of the ladies in our congregation came up to me and said that she noticed that I was always fanning myself during the service and asked me if I was having trouble with hot flashes. She asked me if I had heard about the testosterone pellet therapy and proceeded to sing its praises. She said that she was no longer having hot flashes, her mood had improved, she had more energy, and had even lost weight. She said that the pellets were worth every penny and that was everything I needed to hear.
Since starting the pellets I am happy to report that I have noticed a big change in how I feel. I have more energy, I am not having any hot flashes whatsoever, I am no longer irritable all the time, my concentration level is back to where it used to be, and most importantly, I feel like myself again! I am very happy with my experience with the bioidentical pellet therapy and look forward to continuing it.

I have already received 2 implants of the testosterone pellets and I am currently scheduled for my 3rd. After having the procedure I feel that I have more energy and that my daily endurance lasts longer.
I generally work about 55 hours per week and the implants help me get through it and feel better. Prairieland Wellness Center helped me to find a solution to my fatigue and they seem to really care about me and trying to help. I would recommend them to anyone who having symptoms of hormone imbalance to see if they can help you as well.

I am a 49-year-old female who began receiving testosterone therapy by pellet implantation approximately 2 years ago. I entered surgically induced menopause at age 43. I was experiencing hot flashes, night sweats, joint aches and pains, urinary incontinence, decreased libido, mood swings, vaginal dryness and vaginal atrophy. When I was initially introduced to testosterone therapy by pellet insertion, I researched it extensively before agreeing to proceed. It seemed the answer to all of my concerns. Within 4 weeks of insertion, my symptoms were gone! I mean completely gone! Testosterone therapy has given me my life back. I feel more youthful, alive, healthy and full of life!
I will continue with testosterone therapy as I find it beneficial, easy and affordable.

At the age of 45, I started experiencing hot flashes. I tried several over-the-counter oral medications that seemed to help at first, but stopped working after only a few months. I also tried estrogen and progesterone patches that proved less than satisfactory results. Several of my friends recommended the testosterone pellets to help control my symptoms, so I decided to try them out.
I can't thank my friends enough! The pellets have not only helped to control my hot flashes, but they have greatly improved my quality of life. I would definitely recommend the pellets to others who are suffering from hot flashes and other menopausal symptoms.
