Testosterone pellets are a form of hormone replacement therapy. These pellets contain crystallized testosterone and deliver a steady, low dose of this hormone to the individual for up to 6 months at a time. Benefits include increased mental and physical energy, improved libido and sexual satisfaction, a healthier physique and a better sense of well being.
How is the testosterone pellets therapy like?
One week before the procedure, your healthcare provider may ask you to stop taking all blood thinners such as NSAIDs, aspirin, ibuprofen, acetaminophen, naproxen sodium, etc.
If you are required to take any of these on a daily basis, you should consult with your physician. No fasting in advance of the procedure is required.
There is a first appointment to test your hormone levels.
Your testosterone pellets provider will then schedule an appointment to review your test results and subcutaneously insert your customized pellet therapy dosage.
During the in-office visit, patients are taken into the exam room where the insertion site is cleaned and numbed.
The most common site of insertion is the upper buttock. Once numb, a small incision is made for the pellets to be inserted.
After the pellets are placed, the insertion site is covered with a small bandage.
Implantation is a simple procedure that typically takes only 15 minutes.
Typically, 10 to 12 pellets are implanted during the procedure.
After procedure, you should resume your regular activities unless your doctor suggest otherwise. Within seven to 10 days after your pellet insertion, you might experience positive changes of the therapy.
Testosterone pellet insertion is fast and simple.
