One of the many services our health clinic provides is Testosterone Pellet Implants for men and women alike. Bioidentical Hormone pellets have been reportedly used as early as the 1930’s. Pellets are subcutaneous implants that are pressed into tiny cylinders and inserted just under the skin after a small incision is made into the fat near the hip bone. The pellets contain bioidentical hormones that will help bring your testosterone levels to where they need to be to create the perfect balance in your body. Hormone pellets are the most natural way to deliver hormones in both men and women. The pellets consistently release small doses of bioidentical hormones over time and dissolve over a few months, bringing your health to its optimal levels.

Typically, we start to see testosterone levels drop in men beginning in their late 30’s and early 40’s. However, this decline in hormone levels is different for each and every person. No one person is alike, especially when it comes to hormones. It is important to get tested once you notice any sort of changes within your body. Women can suffer from declines in testosterone levels as well. Usually, we see this decline begin around the time women reach their 40’s, in fact at this age, a woman’s level of testosterone has more than likely decreased by half.

Roles of Testosterone Hormone

  • Improves mood and memory
  • Improves anxiety levels – the human brain cells contain testosterone receptors that significantly affect mental health.
  • Increases bone density and reduces the risk of Osteoporosis.
  • Reduces irritability.
  • Increases libido – helps create more of a natural sex drive in both men and women. The low or high levels of testosterone will alter how a person is feeling about having sex and their feelings towards sex in general.
  • Protects the body against diabetes and obesity.
  • For both men and women, brain function, bone strength, and the development of body strength and muscle mass are determined by the testosterone levels within the body.
  • Improves muscle strength and muscle size.

Testosterone Pellets in Men


Why pellets? Pellets deliver consistent, healthy levels of hormones for 4-6 months. They avoid the fluctuations, or ups and downs, of hormone levels seen with every method of delivery. It is the fluctuation in hormones that causes many of the unwanted side effects and symptoms a patient may experience. A reported 20%-40% of men have a medical condition known as Hypogonadism and need Testosterone Hormone Replacement Therapy, or better known as THRT. This hormone replacement therapy consists of patches, creams, injections, and pellets.

At An Optimal You, we take the necessary steps to test your hormones by conducting thorough lab work and perform and in-depth history workup, this way we can determine what form of therapy your body needs. Testosterone pellet injections are extremely effective when it comes to reversing bone loss, improving vitality, and can potentially enhance the health of blood vessels surrounding the heart.

Testosterone Pellets in Women

Women do have testosterone in their bodies and it is an important part of hormone balancing. Studies have shown improvements in menopause, depression, anxiety, osteoporosis, and overall quality of life, when patients have actively used testosterone pellet hormone replacement therapy. Pellets do not increase the risk of breast cancer and those who have suffered from breast cancer in the past do not see recurrence or death by using hormone replacement therapy. This method is effective in both pre and post-menopausal women.

  • Enhance Libido (sex drive)
  • Helps produce new blood cells
  • Influencing follicle-stimulating hormones that can affect reproduction
  • A decrease in brain fog
  • Improvement in sleep patterns
  • Increase in energy
  • Helps relieve menopausal symptoms
  • An effective treatment for migraines and headaches

This is the closest form of HRT that mimics how a woman’s ovaries produce hormones. This form of hormone replacement therapy provides an effective hormone levels 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, for 3 to 6 months at a time.

Why Testosterone Implants?


  • Hormones (testosterone) Delivered by subcutaneous implants bypass the liver!
  • Does NOT affect clotting factors!
  • Does NOT increase the risk of thrombosis!
  • Pellets are felt to be cardiac protective because they are released directly and slowly into the blood stream and not taken orally like many other methods or pills are.
  • Does not affect blood pressure, liver functions, glucose, or lipid levels.

Benefits of Testosterone Implants


Testosterone has many benefits for both men and women which is why it is important to keep this hormone at its optimal levels. Below are some of the benefits you can look forward to.

  • Increased Energy!
  • Improved Sleep!
  • Increase Muscle Mass AND bone Density
  • Decreased soft fatty tissue!
  • Cost effective – although insurance does not typically cover these costs, this procedure still costs less than other forms of treatment in the long run
  • Simple procedure – nearly a painless procedure, pellets are inserted in the fatty tissue in the lower abdominal wall or near the hip through a small incision and will dissolve slowly over 3-6 months.

It is important to note that patients will not receive all of the amazing benefits of Testosterone Hormone Replacement Therapy by taking vitamins, oral contraceptives, creams or patches. However, some of those methods may be used to coincide with the pellet injections.
