Frequently Asked Questions About Testosterone Replacement Therapy
Before you begin with your testosterone replacement therapy, make sure you keep yourself informed about it. Here are some of the frequently asked questions about TRT.
- Do I have to be on TRT for the rest of my life? Since your body isn’t capable of producing enough testosterone on its own anymore, treatment will have to be the rest of your life.
- How long will it take for me to notice the effects of TRT? It’s different for some people, but generally you should notice an increase in energy, mood, and libido after 3-4 weeks. The increases will be subtle at first, but will culminate at a peak around 12 weeks.
- How would the doctor know how much testosterone to give me? TRT is customized to your needs and circumstances. Your doses are determined based on your blood levels, symptoms, health conditions, and response to previous treatments.
