Frequently Asked Questions

  • What does "long-acting" mean?

    TESTOPEL® slowly releases testosterone into the body for 3 to 4 months, and sometimes up to 6 months.

  • Can TESTOPEL® be transferred to my partner?

    No. Because TESTOPEL® pellets are implanted by a healthcare provider under the skin, not applied topically to the skin, TESTOPEL® cannot be transferred to others during physical contact. Because testosterone is a hormone that regulates sexual growth, such transfer can cause problems for women and children.

  • How is TESTOPEL® inserted?

    A healthcare provider at your doctor’s office implants TESTOPEL® pellets just under the skin in the hip area or another fatty area.

  • How big is a TESTOPEL® pellet?

    TESTOPEL®, relative to a dime, is shown below.

  • What are the side effects of TESTOPEL®?

    Side effects of TESTOPEL® include more erections than normal or erections that last a long time, nausea, vomiting, changes in skin color, ankle swelling, changes in body hair, male pattern baldness, acne, suppression of certain clotting factors, bleeding in patients on blood thinners, increase or decrease in sex drive, headache, anxiety, depression, inflammation and pain at the implantation site and, rarely, anaphylactoid reaction (a sudden onset of allergic reaction).

    Serious side effects associated with abuse of testosterone and anabolic androgenic steroids include cardiac arrest, myocardial infarction, hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, congestive heart failure, cerebrovascular accident, hepatotoxicity, and serious psychiatric manifestations, including major depression, mania, paranoia, psychosis, delusions, hallucinations, hostility and aggression.

  • Are there people who should not receive TESTOPEL®?

    Yes. Men should not receive TESTOPEL® or any form of testosterone replacement therapy if they have known or suspected prostate cancer or breast cancer, or have had an adverse reaction to the product. Also, pregnant women or women trying to get pregnant should not use TESTOPEL® or any testosterone replacement therapy.

  • Will insurance pay for TESTOPEL®?

    A doctor's office experienced with prescribing TESTOPEL® can work with you to explore your benefit coverage.
