What to know about Testosterone Pellets

How it Works

Testosterone pellets are implanted under the skin using an instrument called a trocar, usually near your hip, in a short and simple procedure done by a trained healthcare provider. A local anesthetic is given to reduce any discomfort.

Pellets are a long-acting form of testosterone replacement therapy. They typically deliver a steady dose of testosterone over 4 to 6 months depending on the strength and number of pellets implanted.

Who is it for?

Testosterone replacement therapy is for men with symptoms of low testosterone and blood levels that confirm this as the cause of symptoms. Pellets may be a good option for those seeking a consistent, long-term dose.

Effectiveness

Over several weeks, after implantation, your body will adjust to the new level of testosterone and you should begin to feel the positive effects. Your doctor will help set treatment goals and measure your response by conducting periodic blood tests to measure the level of testosterone in your body.
