The BioTE pellets are inserted just beneath the skin in the fatty tissue of the hip. Most women will need pellets every 3-4 months; men will typically need them every 4-5 months. The advantage of hormone pellet therapy over other methods is that the pure hormone is not metabolized into by-products by going through the liver, stomach or skin. This delivery system allows your body to use the right amount of hormone, as the blood flow surrounding the pellets pick up what is needed.

Typically, the hormone pellet therapy begins working within 24-72 hours. Optimal effect occurs three weeks after insertion.
