TOPICAL HORMONE GELS & CREAMS

Topical hormones come in a variety of dispensing devices. The most common devices include a pump, large syringe, Topi-Click, and single dose packets. If you do not specify which type of device you would like your hormone in we will request a Topiclick as the default dispensing device. A topi-click resembles a small deodorant stick which is easy to use and conceal when traveling. When dispensing your hormone gel/cream it is important to understand how much you are supposed to apply.

Here is a breakdown of how standard dispensing devices measure:

topi-click

Pump: 4 pumps = 1ml

Topiclick: 4 clicks = 1ml

Syringe: syringes are typically measured in increments so you can measure the amount you dispense by pushing the plunger 1ml. Syringes desgied to dispense topical hormones do not require a needle, the cream is dispensed through a nipple at the bottom of the syringe. The syringe plunger is pushed down to dispense the cream in measured doses. Syringes typically have lines marking 1ml measurements. Each measurement will be clearly marked on the syringe. There are a few different sizes for syringes, you may choose what size syringe you would like to have when ordering your topical hormone. If you need assistance reading the measurements on the syringe contact Defy Medical and we will be happy to help.

How to convert your hormone strength from % to milligrams.

Sometimes pharmacists prefer to note the strength of the hormone cream in percentages rather than milligrams (Mg). For example, it may be written on the label: Testosterone 10% gel 30ML. This is simply a different way of writing the strength. Here is how it works:

To convert the % into milligrams simply move the decimal to the right one time.

5% = 50mg
10% = 100mg
20% = 200mg

Using the testosterone 10% gel 30ML as an example, we can interpret this to mean “testosterone 100 milligrams (Mg) per milliliter (ml). There are 30ml in the order which means you have thirty 100mg doses. If you are prescribed to “apply ½ ml every day” this means you are applying 50mg and your 30ml supply will last 60 days. Remember, the cream is 100mg per ml and you are applying ½ ml (50mg). Don’t worry, if you are still confused we are always available to assist you with your medication.

Storage: Store your topical hormones at room temperature. Keep in original closed container in a dark, cool, and dry place away from children. Discard unneeded medicine.
