What are Testopel® Pellets?
Testopel is the brand name for the only FDA-approved testosterone pellets.
The hormones are pressed or fused into very small solid cylinders called pellets. They are larger than a grain of rice but smaller than a Tic Tac.
Pellets deliver consistent, healthy levels of hormones for 3-5 months. They avoid the fluctuations, or ups and downs, of hormone levels seen with other methods of delivery. In studies, when compared to conventional hormone replacement therapy, pellets have been shown to be superior for relief of menopausal symptoms, maintenance of bone density, restoration of sleep patterns, and improvement in sex drive, libido, sexual response and performance.
Testosterone delivered by pellet implant, has been used to treat migraine and menstrual headaches. It also helps with vaginal dryness, incontinence, urinary urgency and frequency. Testosterone has been shown to increase energy, relieve depression, increase sense of well-being, relieve anxiety and improve memory (brain fog) and concentration. Testosterone pellets can increase lean body mass (muscle strength, bone density) and decrease fat mass. Women need adequate levels of testosterone for optimal mental and physical health and for the prevention of chronic illnesses like Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease, which are associated with low testosterone levels. Even patients who have failed other types of hormone therapy have a very high success rate with pellets. Pellets have been used in both men and women since the late 1930’s.
