Pellet: My patients seem to get better and more consistent levels with testosterone pellets. In addition to better levels, the convenience factor puts it at the top of the list. Generally, an insertion for males will last 4-5 months, females, 3-4 months. For those who don't want pellets, my suggestion would be to use injections next and patches last.
