Treatment

Testosterone may be administered, when clinically appropriate, through 1 of 3 methods, depending on the patient’s needs: intramuscular injections, transdermal applications or pellet implants.

Intramuscular injections

Testosterone Cypionate is given by injection once every 7 to 14 days. Dosing is dependent on your age, testing results and symptoms. The testosterone injections we prescribe are only manufactured by FDA-Approved manufacturers. Testosterone injections are given in our clinics or you can self-inject at home.

Transdermal Application

Testosterone is applied to the skin using a gel or cream on a daily basis. The concentration of testosterone in the blood goes up within a few doses.

Pellet Implant

Many methods of delivery can be utilized to administer bioidentical hormone replacement therapy, however, data shows the most efficient method by way of absorption and availability to deliver hormones in both men and women is by pellet implant. BHRT pellets contain either estradiol or testosterone, which are pressed, or fused into tiny solid cylinders that for reference, are smaller than a tic tac and slightly larger than a grain of rice. They deliver consistent and healthy levels of hormones for 3-5 months in women and 4-6 months in men. Pellets dissolve inside the body on their own and are re-implanted two to four times a year depending on how rapidly the patient metabolizes the hormones. Pellets avoid the fluctuations of hormone levels seen with other methods of delivery, providing more consistent hormone levels over a longer period. Unlike conventional or synthetic hormone replacement therapy, pellets do not increase the risk of blood clots.
