Hormone therapy for men can take the form of patches, creams, pills, or pellets, all containing testosterone. The BioTE method of bioidentical hormone replacement for men uses pellets and may be able to help with many different symptoms commonly associated with hormonal imbalance.
Pellets used for male BHRT are custom-compounded hormones. In an in-office appointment, these pellets are inserted subcutaneously in a patient’s upper buttocks. Within two to four weeks after a pellet insertion, the hormone therapy for men may begin to alleviate unwanted symptoms.
