When and How to Use ItSome general considerations to keep in mind during treatment with Testopel include the following:
- This medication comes in the form of a pellet, which is inserted using an injection just beneath the skin (subcutaneously) every three to four months.
- The Testopel pellet is inserted in a healthcare setting, such as your doctor's office or clinic.
- You should avoid swimming, using a hot tub, or lifting heavy weights for a few days after receiving your Testopel injection to help reduce the chance of the pellet coming out.
- For the medication to work properly, it must be used as prescribed. Make sure to keep your appointments with your healthcare provider to receive subsequent injections.

- Your age
- The reason you are using the medicine
- Your testosterone levels
- How you respond to the medication.
