Testosterone Pellets – Testosterone Implant – F*#& That!


I started testosterone replacement therapy at age 31 after being diagnosed with secondary hypogonadism. Researching hormone replacement therapy (HRT) with testosterone was difficult because all of the info was for women or bodybuilders. So I decided to create a site for average guys looking into TRT.

    Holy crap… I just looked at the old videos and that was a woman. Jeeze… it’s a whole different world of testosterone users. Fooled me!

    i have undergone this procedure and i do not recommend it. i have tried testosterone drops, testosterone  pellets and testosterone injections not in that order. hands down injections are the way for me atleast. i do hate needles, but it’s worth it.

    My husband had tried creams and only had a partial improvement in symptoms and t level.  The pellets ROCK! He never once complained abut soreness afterward. The benefits of not having to repeat dose is well worth it. Implant and forget them. The delivery of the hormone is much more even and effective. He went from sleeping 12 hours a day and barely able to even have sex to wanting sex almost every day, sometimes 2 or 3 times (I waited 27 years for a honeymoon phase to our relationship and finally have it).

    Pellets are an excellent option for many. I have hundreds of men on weekly or twice a week injections for younger men. I have switched many over to the pellets and they get a steady level of testosterone for up to 4 months. The video makes it look worse than it is. It takes 6 minutes to do.

    What is a typical cost for the pellets?  How can a tiny pellet hold the 2400mg (2.4 GRAMS) of testosterone needed for 4 months?  Also, can somebody point me towards information on subcutaneous injection of testosterone?

    Ive had the pellets 4 times now and I like it better than trying to run to the doctor for shots or waiting for andro gel to dry… It is sore for a few days but its not that bad.

    A male pellet is 200mg. We insert up to 12 at a time to achieve the correct dose. Women receive between 50mg and 150mg typically. In the Chicago area you can reach me art 63..620.9500 x3 with questions. Dr Castello, Board certified Family Practice

    I’m 71.  The pellets were installed more than two weeks ago.  My t level has gone way up (shot did not work), but I have not felt one iota of energy or of libido. In fact, libido may have gone down a bit.  Urologist said to give it more time.  Is this unusual?

    • TRT Man says:

      Cliff, two weeks is not very much time for something as long-lasting as a pellet to reach its full potential. How are you feeling now?

    Thanks for your response.
    Before the implant, I had been using Tri-Mix injection for erections, but the efficacy eventually waned and erections failed (was going to make a bad pun and write “petered out”!). Now with the increased “t” level, the Tri-Mix works great for libido, but I’ve not experienced (yet) any boost in energy and we are six weeks out. I’m also obese (300+) so that may be an inhibiting factor along with BP meds.
