This is a video explaining on what all we go over in the room. How to care for bandage, 3 day rule, and labs. Watch this to know what to expect when your appointment time comes or use it as a refresher.

*The pellets may take anywhere from 3-6 weeks to kick in. I feel most people start to notice at week 4. Typically Estrogen symptoms are the first thing that you will see getting better. Maybe even within the first week or two (Headaches, Hot Flashes, Night Sweats, and Vaginal Dryness) Testosterone symptoms will follow at a later date. (Mood Swings, Irritability, Tension, Brain Fog, Memory Loss, Anxiety, Depression, Libido, and Sleep)

 

*The pellets last anywhere from 3-5 Months, may be longer for others.

 

*We will do 2 sets of labs post insert. 4 week labs to see where your levels peaked to and to see how your symptoms are doing, and 12 week labs to see how quickly you go through your hormones and to see where I need to schedule you at your next insert. Once everything is established and running smoothly, we like to check annual labs.

 

We will give you a post-op sheet with your do's and don'ts and that covers what I went over in the video.

*We do not give men estrogen but you have a little in your body naturally. We have a range for that. In some men, they may convert some of their testosterone into estrogen. If your labs show you are over your range, we will call you in an estrogen blocker. By taking the medication, it will keep your Testosterone - testosterone and not convert into the estrogen.

 

*We also check your CBC which shows your hematocrit. That measures the thickness of your blood. If your hematocrit is over the range, we will ask you to donate some blood to help thin that out some. (This is common in men)
