Hormone Pellet Therapy Eliminates the Dangers of Testosterone Gel
Testosterone pellet therapy is much more convenient than messy gels – since gels require daily application and testosterone pellets only need to be administered twice a year. But the benefits of pellets don’t end there.
The recent case of a 2-year-old boy who showed signs of puberty after being exposed to his dad’s testosterone gel highlights some of the dangers of using a gel to deliver androgens. Not only is testosterone gel therapy more likely to cause side effects but the side effects can be passed to others who accidentally come in contact with the application site.
In this article the testosterone therapy experts at SottoPelle discuss the differences between pellets and gels – and explain why pellets are the superior delivery method.
Hormone Pellets Deliver Testosterone More Consistently Than Gel
Hormone pellets are tiny time-released implants, placed under the skin, that continuously release small doses of hormones – just like the body does. A single testosterone pellet insertion delivers consistent, ideal levels of hormones for five to six months in men.
Continuous, time-released testosterone delivery avoids the roller coaster “up and down” hormone “surges” that occurs when gels are applied once a day and then wear off over 24 hours.
Hormone Pellets Deliver Testosterone More Convenient Than Gel
In addition to avoiding the hormone fluctuations of gels, also pellets avoid the need for remembering to take daily pills.
Pellets are a superior method of testosterone delivery because they only need to be inserted about twice a year. This avoids the inconvenience of having to remember and apply messy topical testosterone gel daily.
Additionally, testosterone gel must be applied at the exact same time every day. And, there is the added inconvenience that patients must wait several hours (2 to 5 hours depending on brand) before showering or swimming in order to allow the gel to be absorbed through the skin.
Pellets do not interfere with daily routine in any way. In fact, you wouldn’t even know they are there!
Hormone Pellets Deliver Testosterone More Accurately Than Gel
Testosterone pellets are dosed and custom compounded exactly to meet the hormonal needs of each individual patient. So, once the pellet is inserted, the patient receives the most accurate dosage of testosterone – without the risks that come with too much (or too little) hormone.
Messy testosterone creams and gels, however, are very inexact. Even when carefully measured, skin absorption and gel transfer is variable at best. This is an important issue, because too little testosterone will mean that symptoms (such as ED) will continue.
Conversely, if too much gel is applied or absorbed side effects can occur – such as male breasts, anxiety or depression, muscle pain, aggression and more.
Hormone pellets ensure that the most accurate, conservative, and effective customized dose of testosterone is always delivered. 24/7 365 days a year.
Hormone Pellets Deliver Testosterone More Safely than Gel
“One-and-done” subdermal testosterone pellets are also much safer than messy, topical testosterone gels – which can inadvertently be transferred to others with dangerous side effects.
Insider recently reported the story of a two-year-old boy who developed pubic hair and a “sizable” penis caused by prolonged exposure to his dad’s testosterone gel.
The boy was so big that others nicknamed him “Viking” or “Samson” because of his exceptionally large and muscular build. At age two, he was already the size of a four- or five-year-old. Blood work showed that the boy had as much testosterone in his body as a grown man – all from testosterone that was transferred from his father’s hands after he had applied testosterone gel to himself.
Men who use testosterone gel can also cause dangerous side effects in their female partners, if the hormones are inadvertently transferred to the woman. Excess testosterone can cause unusual hair growth, increased anxiety and aggression, an enlarged clitoris, and menstrual and/or reproductive problems in females.
Hormone pellets, however, are inserted under the skin. This removes the risk that testosterone will be accidently transferred to others, including the women and children in a patient’s life!
