Female hormones such as Estrogens have been associated with a higher risk of blood clot formation which in turn is associated with a higher risk of such blood clots travel ling to the lungs, If at all possible you should be off Birth Control pills and estrogens supplementation for a few weeks before surgery to lower these risks.

your question should be answered by an endocrinologist possibly as there may be a risk of blood clots with the hormones and the surgery.

I am not aware of the pellet you describe but any estrogen containing hormone supplement has the potential to increase the risk for deep venous thrombosis.
