Bead implants are small plastic/silicone balls filled with testosterone. They are implanted under the “skin of the buttocks and the hormone is secreted over a 3-4 month period.

 

 Testosterone enters the bloodstream directly through these methods, offering an effective response. Oral testosterone exists, but experts believe they have negative effects on the blood stream.

What Can I Expect From Hormone Treatment?

Results vary by each individual, but most men see an improvement in energy level, sex drive and overall erection quality. Bone density, physical strength and muscle mass may increase in some men.

If you or your partner are experiencing symptoms of low testosterone, be sure to seek the advice of a licensed physician. Self-diagnosis can lead to incorrectly treating a condition.
