What is testosterone replacement therapy?

Testosterone replacement therapy, or TRT, is a treatment for low testosterone, or low-T. Low-T happens when a man’s body isn’t producing enough testosterone due to aging or as a result of a health-related issue. Having low testosterone can affect a man’s ability to develop or maintain muscle mass, bone density, sexual features, red blood cell levels, sexual function, reproductive function, or even a sense of wellbeing. To correct such issues and address low-T, a patient might get testosterone replacement therapy. TRT can improve sex drive, energy levels, muscle, sleep quality, and more.

There are different ways to do the therapy, like with topical testosterone, transdermal patches, oral medication, or intramuscular injections. These injections offer the most consistent results which can be extended with ongoing treatment.

Why would you need to go to a testosterone replacement therapy clinic?

You might need to go to such a clinic if you have low-T or are experiencing symptoms often associated with it. It’s easy to confuse the symptoms of low-T with those of other health issues, so go see a professional instead of trying to self-diagnose which is never recommended. Some of the common signs/symptoms of low-T are:

  • Reduced drive for sex
  • Low energy, somewhat commonly known as lethargy
  • Fatigue or tiredness that occurs right after supper
  • Irritability
  • Strong feelings of unfulfillment or sadness, or possibly depression
  • Physical endurance loss
  • Height loss
  • Work productivity loss

For relief from such symptoms, treatment at a testosterone replacement therapy clinic may be necessary. It’s a good idea to see a professional, regardless, and it may be important to do so if you can’t explain your symptoms. Left untreated, low-T may lead to impotence, muscle mass loss, anemia, or another issue, or the symptoms we mentioned above may worsen.

How long will it take for TRT to work?

There are lots of positive effects of TRT, and some appear at different times than others. The effects on sexual interest appear after around three weeks, and changes in erections and ejaculations appear after several months. Quality of life effects can manifest within only a few weeks! The appearance of maximum effects varies. The method of therapy you do and the regimen you’re on are factors in how long it will take for TRT to work.

How long does a testosterone shot last?

Typically, the effects of a single shot will last for two weeks, then you just get another shot. Every two weeks is generally enough, and the effects of the therapy can be extended, possibly indefinitely. Connect with us to learn more about what you can expect from TRT at our clinic!
