Testopel Experience
Mar 19, 2010

I just started today with 10 testopel pellets. I have to do labs in a month. could you elaborate more with your testopel experience? labs frequency? how long for next insertion? etc

Response from Mr. Vergel

I loved the Testopel pellets. I got 12 and my testosterone blood levels were above 500 nanograms for 5 months. They dissolved eventually.

Test your testosterone blood levels once a month just to see how long it will take for your total testosterone to drop below 400 nanograms..that would be the time to get more pellets. I assume that your insurance is paying for the pellets since they can be expensive.

Pellets are a good option for those who hate injections and who forget to apply testosterone gels daily.
