Testosterone Pellet (TRT) Therapy in Chicago
Men need testosterone to live well — it’s your strength, your power, your stamina — and it prevents many chronic illnesses. Testosterone therapy rejuvenates and revives; improving your sex drive and helping you get strong and lean. At Forum Health Chicago, we use only the safest and most effective forms of testosterone therapy: testosterone pellets or injections — never gels, creams, or patches.
You’ll see dramatic results quickly: clearer thinking, improved mood and sleep, heightened sexual desire and staying power, more energy, and a better ability to manage stress.
Testosterone is the main sex hormone that men have. In addition to affecting your libido and your sexual performance, it’s also tied to well-being, confidence, energy, motivation, concentration, strength, muscle mass, and body fat.
Testosterone replacement therapy is as much an art as it is a science. With years of experience treating low T, we know exactly how to determine the right amount and delivery for you, customizing each treatment to optimize effective and safe improvements in health, energy, and performance. Intensify your edge and live better, stronger, and longer.

What is Testosterone Pellet Therapy?
Pellets are the most effective, safest, and convenient form of testosterone replacement.
Testosterone pellets have been in use for more than 60 years. Unlike creams and gels applied to your skin, pellets have no risk of contaminating women, children, and pets.
Pellets deliver more consistent testosterone levels. Over the long term, patients avoid the fluctuations seen with other hormone delivery methods.
Testosterone pellets are virtually painless and have few side effects. Another option is self-injected testosterone. But men often complain about pain; the weekly injection frequency; difficulty traveling with testosterone and needles; and side effects.
How Do Testosterone Pellets Work?
Each pellet — about the size of a small breath mint — contains natural compressed testosterone.
During a quick and painless procedure, these crystalline pellets are implanted under the skin in the upper buttock area. The incision is so small that it can be closed with a piece of tape.
Once implanted, pellets deliver a steady dose of testosterone. Because they dissolve slowly over four months, you avoid the ups and downs seen with therapies like weekly (and painful) testosterone injections. The effects last 4–6 months after treatment.
