The first step to BHRT is consulting a physician who is an expert in testosterone therapy via testosterone pellet insertion. The physician will determine if patients are eligible for BHRT after an in-office appointment and extensive lab work.
|Pellet insertion is a minor procedure done in the doctor’s office with local anesthesia. After numbing the insertion site, a small incision is made in the upper buttock, the hormone pellets are inserted, the incision site is closed, and dressing is applied. As the pellets dissolve, the body absorbs the contents leaving nothing behind. Each patient’s symptoms are unique, so each journey is customized to fit your needs. Some patients report seeing improvement in symptoms in as little as four weeks, but full optimization can take up to six months.|
After the pellet-insertion procedure, it is advised to avoid strenuous lower body exercise, bathtubs, hot tubs, and swimming. Showering is permitted. Normal activity and exercise can be resumed once the dressing is removed.
