Why Do We Need Testosterone Replacement Therapy

Testosterone Replacement Therapy

“I think something is wrong within me but I do not know what” This is what my buddy have told me a couple of days. So I told him, “what do you feel?” then he told me that he sometimes have mood swings, has decreased sex drive, gets irritated easily, hot flashes and night sweats and many more.

So what I did was researched online and guess what I found out. He is experiencing hormonal changes or maybe decreased testosterone levels. This is normal in men especially as he ages.
Usually when one experiences these things, we get frightened and confused on what to do. But actually, there are many ways to treat it and one of the popular ways to treat hormonal imbalance or decreasing hormones like testosterone is undergoing testosterone replacement therapy.

So if you have decreasing testosterone levels then why not replace them by undergoing this therapy. However, this could only proceed when you have low levels of blood and testosterone. The symptoms of it may be sometimes obvious but others do not show any symptoms of it so it is not recommended for them. This usually occurs as you age or as you reach later years.

There are many forms of testosterone replacement therapy such as skin patch, gels, mouth patch and the injections and implants. Among these types, the pellet therapy is the most popular. This is done by inserting a pellet made of identical hormones in the soft tissues of the patient that is usually near the buttocks.

These pellets that are inserted in the skin contain customized level of testosterone or estrodiol, which slowly metabolizes over a period of 3 to 4 months. It releases a bio-identical hormone in the same matter how our body secretes natural hormones. In this way, it prevents the depletion of testosterone in the body.

Men who have undergone this therapy have experienced high levels of energy, improved sex drive and erections. It have also improved their mood and sleep. So far the effects of this therapy are positive as long as it’s in proper dosing. Mostly the effects of this therapy can be noticeable within 3 to 6 weeks.

So there it goes, if you ever experience the symptoms mentioned about, do not ignore it. You may be experiencing hormone imbalance such as low levels of testosterone too. Seek some help and consider this option.
