From the age of 40, both men and women suffer a gradual decrease in hormone production, giving rise to what is known as andropause in men, which is the equivalent of female menopause. This phenomenon is usually accompanied by multiple symptoms

Madrid, January 30, 2024.- In this type of situation, Dr. Manuel de la Peña, director of the Chair of Heart and Longevity and president of the European Institute of Health and Social Welfare, suggests hormone replacement with a “pellet” type implant. “, popularly known as “sexual or youth chip”.

The pellet is a little larger than a grain of rice and contains a macroconcentration of hormones. It is placed through a small incision deep in the buttock or in some place with adipose tissue. It is performed on an outpatient basis with local anesthesia. The pellet releases the chosen hormone (testosterone, estradiol, etc.) in a sustained, linear way and similar to how the testicle and ovary work. Taking into account the analysis of hormonal levels, symptoms and other factors, such as the person’s weight and height, the quantity and type of hormones that make up the pellet are decided, the preparation of which is entrusted to a pharmacy specialized in formulas. masterful, says Professor de la Peña.

The dose of hormones in each implant is specific for each person and must be prescribed by a specialist doctor after performing an analysis of hormonal levels to determine the deficiency and the need to supplement it. The release of hormones lasts around 5-6 months and once the dose has been consumed, a new implant must be placed again.

Among the benefits, for both men and women, is that of stimulating sexual desire, and energy in daily tasks. In fact, it improves sexual performance when the cause of the lack of libido depends on hormonal levels, increases the level of daily energy and vitality, improves sleep, mood, memory and concentration. Helps in weight loss by eliminating and redistributing body fat, improves cholesterol levels, increases muscle mass and protects function cardiovascular.

De la Peña concludes by stating that there are scientific controversies about the benefits and risks and that, therefore, it is not indicated in people with suspected cancer; it should be ruled out if there is evidence of tumors or positive hormone receptors. That is why it is important to previously carry out a complete analysis and imaging tests, such as ultrasounds, and it is essential to be monitored by a specialist. These hormone replacement therapies are already being performed, in both women and men, in some countries.

Professor De la Peña is an academic, professor of cardiology, Cum Laude in medicine and writer. He has been awarded the Gold Badge of the Association of Coronary Patients (APACOR) and the Bronze Medal of the Society of International Studies (SEI).
