What is the Difference Between Testosterone Pellets and Testosterone Injections?

There are so many men who struggle with low testosterone or low t. While this issue is unfortunately common, it can come with a number of different symptoms and side effects that can impact your overall quality of life. If you are struggling with low t, then testosterone treatments can help get your hormone levels back on track so you can get back to feeling like yourself.

While there are several different types of testosterone treatments out there, one of the biggest questions we get is about the difference between pellets and shots. Each treatment is safe and can help deliver the type of results that most men are looking for. So how do you determine which treatment is the right treatment for you?


Pellets are a treatment method that many men use because you only need to go in for treatment four times per year. Most treatments last around 90 days before they are completely absorbed by the body. At that time, you will need to get another pellet injection.

With pellets, a small incision is made near the hip, and the pellets are placed in the hip using local anesthesia. Pellets can be a little bit different, particularly at first, as every person absorbs pellets differently. If you need a change or an adjustment to your pellet dosage, you typically won’t be able to get one until the next treatment plan.

While pellets are, in general, quite safe, they are slightly more invasive than other testosterone treatments, such as injections.


Injections are a very common testosterone treatment solution and a great way to help men who are struggling with low T. Injections require more visits than pellets, and you will need to go into an office every 7-10 days for your injections.

Testosterone injections are less invasive than pellets and require a quick needle injection and don’t require any local anesthesia. Another benefit of injections is that they are easier to adjust. Different men are going to react to testosterone treatments differently. If the exact dosage you are getting doesn’t work, your healthcare practitioner can adjust your treatment so that it works better for you.
