If you caught Wednesday night’s episode of The Real Housewives of New Jersey on Bravo, relationship expert Siggy Flicker opened up about her struggles with hormonal imbalance and shared her experience with bioidentical hormone replacement and pellet therapy. She was filmed receiving hormone therapy via pellet insertion to help boost her levels of testosterone and estrogen.
Siggy, also referred to as Soggy Flicker by her cast mates, is a self-proclaimed “crier” and credits bioidentical hormone pellets with changing her life. Siggy’s story begins years ago when she visited her doctor because she was not feeling well. She suffered from fibroids on her right ovary, and her physician suggested that removing them by way of surgery would be the best route to get her back to feeling like herself. During surgery, Siggy’s physician discovered a borderline cancerous tumor on her left ovary and for the sake of her health, had to perform a full hysterectomy.
Upon waking from surgery, Siggy reports that she felt the adverse effects of hormone imbalance immediately; hot flashes, a decreased sex drive, and the inability to manage her emotions properly. After receiving powerful information on the benefits of bioidentical hormone replacement, she made the decision to move forward with therapy. Siggy’s treatment plan included pellet therapy, which is an easy and convenient way to help balance hormones within the body. The pellets, which were custom compounded for her unique needs, were inserted in the upper buttock area (hence the term she used: “butt pellets”) through a small incision during a simple in-office visit. Siggy notes that the pellet insertion was painless and credits bioidentical hormone pellets for her almost immediate improvements.
Siggy has proudly announced that within the last seven months of receiving pellet therapy she has not been affected by a single hot flash and has regained her libido, which she discusses with friends in the “Growing Up Jersey” episode of The Real Housewives of New Jersey.
Hormonal imbalances can affect anyone, not just women going through menopause. If you find yourself living with uncomfortable symptoms like Siggy was such as hot flashes, night sweats, moodiness or a declining sex drive, bioidentical hormone replacement therapy may be your solution to achieve a better quality of life.
