Prior to treating you, we perform lab work in order to gather information on your current hormone levels and any underlying health issues that could prevent the start of therapy. Using this data, our physicians create the correct balance between the testosterone and estrogen pellets and the progesterone they prescribe for you – this process is unique to each patient and their lab work. After your initial pellets are inserted, blood work is performed regularly so that we can continue to analyze your status and make sure the pellets are working as they should be as well as your dosage being ideal.
