What is testosterone therapy?

North Myrtle Beach Testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) is a treatment for men meant to supplement low testosterone levels that occur during aging or are the result of a health condition. TRT can be highly effective via injections that your doctor customizes for your individual needs.

Testosterone injections help men achieve optimal benefits while minimizing side effects. Gels, creams, and pellets are also options for testosterone therapy.

How long do I need to stay on testosterone therapy?

Hypogonadism is a chronic condition for most men. Some suffer short-term Low T resulting from infection or physical or emotional stress. Treating the infection heals the physical damage or alleviates the emotional stress, and proper testosterone levels return. Men who have been experiencing symptoms for months are considered chronic and need ongoing treatment.

The symptoms return when you discontinue therapy. This is similar to diabetics needing insulin or patients who take medication for thyroid issues.

What happens if I stop therapy?

If you stop TRT, your body returns to its baseline performance level over the course of a few months. It is important to note that you can stop the therapy under the supervision of a health care professional, tapering down the dose to minimize side effects.
