What are testosterone pellets?

One of the best ways for natural hormone replacement is with bio-identical testosterone pellets. The pellets are made up of natural testosterone and are pressed into very small, solid cylinders by a compounding pharmacist. They have been used in Europe and Australia for years. These pellets are about the size of a grain of rice. Testosterone pellets have been used in both men and women in the United States since the late 1930’s, and the 75 mg testosterone pellet was FDA approved in the 1970’s. Testosterone pellets are one of the best ways to replace testosterone naturally in your body. Testosterone pellets do require a prescription from a physician and are administered by a physician in a simple procedure. They are primarily used for testosterone deficiency in both men and women who are unable to make sufficient amounts of testosterone in their body due to menopause, andropause, chronic diseases, injury or other unspecified causes. Multiple studies support that hormone replacement therapy with pellet implants is the most effective and natural way for both men and women.

The pellets are made by a compounding pharmacist under sterile procedure and are placed in sterile vials or ampules. These can be sterilized by different methods. I suggest not using the pellets that are sterilized with “iodine” since this may cause a reaction or rejection in the body after it is inserted. For this reason, I prefer to use the pellets that are sterilized with radiation.

They can be easily inserted in a quick office procedure in your doctor’s office, taking 8 to 10 minutes with virtually no pain. The pellets are placed into the fat area of your upper buttock/hip region. Your physician will clean the skin with a topical antibacterial scrub, then numb the area on your hip with a local anesthetic like lidocaine. Then the pellets would be inserted through very small incision in your skin into the fatty layer, which is then taped closed. No stitches are needed. The pellets will completely dissolve over the next 3 to 6 months depending on the number of pellets placed and how quickly your body breaks it down. The testosterone pellets work by releasing a constant supply of testosterone into your body in a natural way. Your body will form blood vessels over the pellets to allow the hormone to get into your bloodstream at a slow, consistent rate. If you are more active, your body may require more testosterone and the pellets will get absorbed more quickly. The reservoir of testosterone pellets under your skin mimics what your ovaries or testes would do in your body, allowing your body to get testosterone at a consistent level. This is the most physiological and natural way to deliver testosterone to your body, avoiding the fluctuations that can make you feel unbalanced, commonly seen in other methods of delivery. In women, testosterone pellets deliver healthy levels of hormones for 3-4 months and 4-5 months for men. Studies have shown that testosterone hormone pellet therapy is superior to conventional hormone replacement for relief of menopausal symptoms; improving restorative sleep, maintaining bone density, and improving sex drive response and performance!
