Kacy- the doctor usually gives you the first pellet injection after they check all your blood work to see what your hormone levels are. You will then repeat your lab work in 2-3 weeks and they usually give you what is called a balancer injection. Then every 3 months an injection after lab work. It is a very expensive process. MY GYN charged $800.00 per injection. Lab was covered by insurance.

Good luck and be careful.

My wife is 39 and had her blood work done which resulted in her testosterone levels at "7". Dr. Said it should be around 145 or so... Anyway she has zero libido or desire and has put a heavy strain on our marriage. If we ever have sex then it's just to have sex but robs us both of the mutual benefit.

She had two pellets installed just over a week ago and still no libido... I've waited two years , I can just keep waiting :(

Ideas?

Thank You, it has been about three months guess I need to go back for lab work. I was charged 300.00 and insurance paid for lab work.

Well I see it like this....Men MB, so to know your wife is doing it shouldn't mean anything....right??? But your words "She is still not coming to me, is this normal" well....lets see, why do men MB? Maybe for the first time in your wife's life she has finally starting to feel what having balanced hormones is all about with the help of Testosterone. If we women had half the Testosterone you men had we wouldn't be having this conversation. It's a subject where, it's okay for a man to do it,because he has Testosterone... but why is my wife doing it and not coming to me, that is just mind boggling to me! Simple answer, it's okay for her to do this and to not come to you because she is doing what men have done all along, pleasing themselves and maybe for the first time enjoying what we women have never had or felt, just like a guy. She will come to you, when she is ready. I would think a man would completely understand this? Just my opinion.

Men have had what we women have had very little of which is the high levels of Testosterone like you men have. I have had No desire for sex with my husband or any other man for that point because my hormone balance did not exist, but for you men the Testosterone that runs through your blood is something that is overwhelming for us women to have to deal with. Now take away your Testosterone and what do you have, I'm sure you can guess, and how would you feel? You wouldn't have the same sex drive at all! Having pellets just inserted two weeks ago and expecting a completely different women in the bed is not quite that easy. Yes these pellets will help her but if you have waited 2 years for sex than expect to wait a little longer if you love her. Your wife's hormones levels will balance out, but for crying out loud give it a chance to get into her system. We have one man on here complaining about his wife MB all of the time and not coming to him when she does that, with that, all I can say is , now you know what we women have had to put up with, with having to watch our men MasterB and not coming to us, but for your wife, her levels of 7 are as good as ZERO, so let these hormones get into your wife's blood stream, mine took close to 6 months to get any feeling of wanting sex, but at least I can enjoy sex now instead of having to do it just to do it to make the man happy. Be patient, and don't pressure her, that will not help this situation. If you love her, let these pellets work, it takes time. I'm sure it won't take her as long as me as women have felt the results of these pellets with the first insert but like I have said everyone is different so give it time, just don't apply pressure, that DOES NOT work with us women! Be Patient! My Opinion!

i have had to, because she will not give it to me. i can not speak
for all men, but if i had the choice of MBing or having someone help, i would prefer the help

Ok ok... Sam, I'm not attempting to come on this forum to get on my soap box. I'm confused. The Dr. Said about a week, others months.. You are correct though as to who really knows the outcome, with so many variables to a female body's chemistry. Lastly I just discovered the pellet is only one resolution & perhaps other issues could be "Arousal disorder" is a separate component ... If that is the case, well more solutions we may need to explore I suppose..

I was just wondering how you felt now? I had bio T pellets 2 months ago and feel great. This sounds crazy but I didnt do much research berfore I had this done. I had spoke to at leat 4 women who did this and said they felt great as well. Now... I am starting to research it and getting a little scared. My T level was 269 after 8 weeks and from reading post that seems to be really high so wondering why I feel so good. My husband and I have enjoyed our increase in sex but I am concererned about the enlarge clitoris. Sounds like you did alot of research so wondering what you know on this? Also, I'm in fort worth and kinda feel the same way about my doctor. Even though I feel great dont seem to get one on one with the doc. Where was your doc?

My doctor was in San Marcos, TX. I did not like the fact that I only saw her once and that for the consultation. After that her nurse gave me the pellet injections with copies of my lab. If I had a concern I would have to leave my message with her staff and then the staff would call me back.
I was not happy with her as a doctor. I had the initial injection and then the balancer and had to quit due to the very high Testosterone level of 288 and severe anxiety. I also experienced nausea, vomiting and 20 pound weight loss. My body could not handle all that Testosterone. I also had to see my GYN about the enlarged clitoris and he put me on medication and it is still not normal. You may be a women that can tolerate that high dose of T.
I have a friend that is getting these pellet injections and she is doing fine. Just be very careful.

Kim, I'm in the South Florida area, My pellets each cost me $25.00 so I always need four. SO it's 100.00 for me. The insertion costs me $200.00. So every 16 weeks it cost be 300.00 hope this helps.

It cost me 25.00 for each pellet I need. I've always needed 4 so it's 100.00 The doctor charges me 200.00 to insert them. I do this every 16 weeks. And I love them.

Hi Candace,
I don't know if this happen to you but I live in The Woodlands TX and my doc started me on SottoPelle in July 12.... after my first booster, then the next set of pellets I started feeling bad and knew something was wrong...I kept telling him that something was different/wrong...I did not know what but I was not doing well.. long story short, I went to the SottoPelle website to find another doc thinking that maybe I needed a second opinion on dosing.. I noticed that all of the doc's that were close to me (here and Houston) were gone! I called the SottoPelle office and was told that a large group of docs "went out on their own" and created a bio identical pellet and separated from SottoPelle. There was an agreement made between these docs and SottoPelle. The docs involved did something to keep the SottoPelle Doctor/Pellet from being used in certain areas of Texas, it is the areas that these doctors practice. I have resorted to driving to Paris Texas to see a doc there for my pellets... this is a 5 hr drive or me. The Doc I was seeing here locally never had the decency to tell me he was using something different.... Good luck!

Hi Ladybird...

My doc is the same way, I think that they all are... you don't see them unless there is an issue. From what I hear alot of women do great on a high T and are successful with this... for me, my T level did not even reach 200 and I have suffered with horrible cystic acne and hair growth... I am a natural light blonde and I started getting black hair on my chin, upper lip and some neck area... I have had to resort to laser to remove the hair.... I have tried supplements, etc... and only get bad side effects....
I am interested in what docs you all see in TX.... that is where I am!

Hi Susie--- I saw Dr. Theresa Irwin in San Marcos, TX. for my consultation on the hormone implant injection. She has a nurse that gives you the shot. You only see the doctor for the consultation and then all correspondence is done through the office staff. I paid $800.00 for the injection and that is what she charges for each injection every 3 months. You can read from my previous posts all the trouble I had as she gave me a very high dose of Testosterone. It took months for it to get out of my system. It seems like there are no GYN's in this area that know how to deal with hormonal therapy. I was very lucky to have a great GYN in VA. I also have the problem with the excessive hair growth in the same area and I am thinking of laser therapy. Make sure you had Thyroid testing done. I am now seeing an Endocrinologist as they found a Thyroid nodule on a Thyroid Ultrasound as I had quite a bit of swelling above both collar bones. One of my immune globulin's are also elevated. Supplements do nothing for me. I am back on HRT.

Tita- I was only given Testosterone and Progesterone 50mgm to take at bedtime. I have read up on this and they should be including Estrogen.

Yes that is what I feel now with my side effects after testosterone pellet and she refused to give me E. I feel back where I was before the pellet and I'm not sure where to go to counter act this testosterone pellet without it
Thanks

Dan,
try Dr. Huey in the Woodlands. He specializes in this treatment. I have been seeing him for a year and a hlaf because of low libido. I have had the testerone pellet insertions every 3-4 months and it has helped tremendously.
If you need anymore answers just email.
Good luck
Sorry to say that I go to his wife and they are not doing such a great job with me.
I had a reaction to the anastrozole in the T pellets and she said that could not happen cause it is such a tiny dose and now I AM EXHAUSTED after the pellet insertion and she says that is not happening either.

Well I really thought they were the kind of Drs that undetrstood but what I can see is they are the kind of Drs that give you what they feel is necessary and if you have a different reaction to it then you are wrong.
So Sad
