Do your testosterone levels need a boost? Testosterone is an important hormone that affects libido, muscle mass, memory, and energy levels. Male testosterone pellet therapy is a type of hormone replacement therapy that is individually tailored to the patient. It uses small pellets of custom-compounded hormones that are inserted under the skin for continuous therapeutic support.
How Comfortable is Testosterone Pellet Therapy?
Most patients experience minimal discomfort with pellet insertion. The entire process is generally considered quick and tolerable. The procedure typically takes less than 20 minutes. Testosterone pellets are tiny — approximately the size of a grain of rice. The treatment site is cleaned and numbed, then the pellet is inserted through a very small incision and the site is covered with a bandage.
