What to Expect from Testosterone Pellet Therapy

Volonte is the most comprehensive option for low testosterone therapy in Lafayette, Indiana.

If you have low testosterone, you may be struggling with symptoms like loss of energy, irritability or depression, more body fat, or decreased libido. While these issues often get in the way of daily life, testosterone pellet therapy can help you combat low T symptoms and start feeling like yourself again.

Pellet implants are a safe, convenient, effective option for men struggling with low T. With this treatment, you’ll experience a boost in your mood, energy, and libido in just three to four weeks — and your stamina, mental health, sleep, and muscle mass will greatly improve by month six.

Read on to learn about the benefits of testosterone pellet therapy, possible side effects (which your doctor can help you mitigate), and what to expect from the treatment.


A medical professional will help you establish the right testosterone dosage, then oversee your pellet therapy to continue monitoring your progress. Then, you’ll be able to find relief from low T symptoms without increasing your red blood cell count — or raising your testosterone past normal levels.

Besides working with a low testosterone expert, other benefits of pellet therapy include:

  • Convenient, 10-minute visits every three months
  • Ease of use (a medical professional administers doses for you)
  • Improved mood, libido, and energy levels after three or four weeks
  • Less skin irritation than you might have with gels or creams
  • No daily medication or shots required

Possible Side Effects

The side effects of pellet therapy may include:

  • Fluid retention
  • Acne
  • Oily skin
  • Decreased urine stream
  • Increased frequency of urination
  • Smaller testicle size
  • Reduced sperm count
  • New or worsening sleep apnea
  • Swelling of breast tissue and prostate
  • Infection of the insertion site
  • Pellets dislodging and coming out of the skin

Your medical professional will walk you through these potential side effects and help you mitigate or avoid them as much as possible.

What to Expect

If you think pellet therapy may be right for you, here are the steps you’ll follow to begin your treatment: 

  • First, schedule a free, same-day testosterone screening. This will take less than five minutes at your local testosterone therapy clinic.
  • If you qualify for pellet therapy, you’ll meet with a medical team for a full evaluation to ensure your body is ready for treatment.
  • Just a few days after your medical exam, you’ll begin your pellet treatments. These occur every three months and take 10 minutes or less every time.
  • During this treatment, a medical professional will thoroughly clean the area where they plan to implant the pellets (usually the upper hip or glutes).
  • Then, he or she will administer a local anesthetic before implanting rice-sized pellets into the subcutaneous dermal layer of your skin. These pellets will deliver a low, steady dose of testosterone until your next implant.
  • You’ll start to see a boost in your mood, energy, and libido within the first three to four weeks of treatment, with major changes after 60 to 90 days.
  • After three months, you’ll come back for your next implant. And you’ll only have to come in every three months after that for treatments.

If you have low T, pellet therapy can help you start feeling like yourself again.

You can work with a medical professional to find the right testosterone dosage for your body, receive quick and convenient implants, and enjoy having more energy (and better overall health) in just three or four weeks.
