Testosterone Pellets As An Anti-Aging Therapy
« on: June 01, 2015, 04:04:41 pm »
Just a quick post on my therapy with pellets.  I had 9 pellets inserted mid December as an anti aging therapy.  Test started at 664 total, 100 free with E2 at 38.  Six weeks later I tested at 998 total, 155 free, E2 51.  Added .625 Letrozole every 7 days and tested 8 weeks later at 967 total, 135 free and E2 at 11.  Switched the Letrozole to every 10 days and tested 8 weeks later at 775 total, 117 free and E2 25. Still fell great.

Pellets seem to be working.  They defiantly keep the levels even with the drop off only slight over the months.  Next week I get the second round and will let everyone know how it goes.

Congrats on the good #s.

Here is the tricky part for you:

With pellets your T will start tapering off and you'll need to adjust the AI.  What's the doc say about that?

hello Rocco !

Welcome to the Path of Pellets for HRT! I am now in my 4th year of SottoPelle HRT, and haven't felt better since my 30's. I get them every 6 months. Even at 5 month point, my T is still up to 850 ng/dl or better. A few tests, the T hadn't dropped below 1,000.

I have had zero problems with the pellets. Both my Endos are surgeons and trained in the SottoPelle method. they know which end of trocar to use.

My Endo started me with bloodwork 4-5 weeks BEFORE and AFTER the pellet insert, to adjust/check the compounded recipe which is specifically mine. I also get 1 pellet of DHEA inserted. Now, Ibecause I am so stable with bloodlab numbers, I get bloodwork done just at four weeks after the pellets.

also, I'm on 300 IU human Chorionic Gonadotropin Sub-Q monday to Friday, and .05 milligram Letrozole once a week. See my signature block for last bloodwork numbers.

Again, this took almost three years to get good numbers, and I was God-blessed to have two sincerely awesome Endo's and my urologist on my side.

So, stick with it, make sure you get the Trifecta of pellets, hCG, and an AI, and periodic bloodwork.

Have some Fun this week, too !

keep us posted! Cheers! -Sam D.

SamD:  So are you on an AI the whole time and, if so, does your doc adjust the dosage as your T falls from its peak?

Your Test levels only drop by about 200ng/dl over 5 months which is not alot.  It does not throw off the AI dosage that much.  With pellets you do not get a spike after injection where there is alot of T to E2 conversion.  Estradiol control is much easier with pellets.

Okay, well that is an interesting point in your case.  You are doing this for anti-aging and you've got a pretty savvy anti-aging doc apparently and the # of pellets is relatively small (at least for Testopel), so you're going to have a smoother ride.  I didn't think of that.  Okay, makes sense...
