Testosterone Pellets are a bioidentical, compounded medication that is inserted subcutaneously. The pellets slowly dissolve, releasing a steady amount of testosterone lasting 4 to 6 months, making the pellets the preferred treatment method. This treatment for low testosterone method allows for individual dosing and more consistent testosterone levels, without increased clotting factors or liver functions seen with oral testosterone products.
Testosterone Injections are an effective treatment option for low-T that bypasses the liver metabolism associated with oral medications. To minimize peaks and troughs in testosterone levels, a weekly dose will be given to achieve as stable a level as possible.
Clomid is a selective estrogen receptor modulator. It blocks estrogen which has a feedback loop to increase LH (luteinizing hormone), which leads to increased testosterone production by Leydig cells in the testes. It is a daily pill, which can double the baseline testosterone level, however, it does not work for everyone.
