Pellets are the most effective, safest, and convenient form of testosterone replacement. Testosterone pellets have been in use for more than 60 years. Unlike creams and gels applied to your skin, pellets have no risk of contaminating women, children, and pets. Pellets deliver more consistent testosterone levels. Over the long term, patients avoid the fluctuations seen with other hormone delivery methods. Testosterone pellets are virtually painless and have few side effects. Another option is self-injected testosterone. But men often complain about pain; the weekly injection frequency; difficulty traveling with testosterone and needles; and side effects. How Pellets Work Each pellet — about the size of a small breath mint — contains natural compressed testosterone. During a quick and painless procedure, these crystalline pellets are implanted under the skin in the upper buttock area. The incision is so small that it can be closed with a piece of tape. Once implanted, pellets deliver a steady dose of testosterone. Because they dissolve slowly over four months, you avoid the ups and downs seen with therapies like weekly (and painful) testosterone injections. The effects last 4–6 months after treatment.
