Testosterone Replacement Therapy Before and After

Testosterone Replacement Therapy

Patients diagnosed with low testosterone can expect to see many positive before and after results from testosterone replacement therapy.

Testosterone replacement therapy is prescribed for men who have been diagnosed with low testosterone. Testosterone therapy is usually prescribed for a period of six months, after which you before and after results of testosterone replacement will be evaluated. 

The many positive benefits of testosterone therapy are designed to be cumulative. Each month that you are on testosterone therapy, you can expect to see more and more before and after results.

How soon you will start to see your first results depends a lot upon your age, your testosterone levels at the time of your diagnosis, and the way you are taking testosterone replacement. However, most patients will see recognizable results within the first six to eight weeks of testosterone therapy and will achieve significant before and after results over the course of their testosterone replacement program.

What to Expect from Testosterone Therapy?

If you are a man over the age of 40 and have been experiencing any of the following:

  • Erectile dysfunction or other sexual health issues
  • Tiredness and fatigue
  • Weight gain, particularly belly fat
  • Poor sleep
  • Loss of lean muscle
  • Cognitive difficulties

Testosterone Therapy

It is a safe bet that low testosterone can be at the root of your problem. If, after medical evaluation and testing, you are diagnosed with low testosterone, a program of testosterone replacement therapy can reverse all of the above symptoms and more.

Every patient who is prescribed testosterone replacement therapy will see results. However, there are a few things you need to understand about the expected before and after results of testosterone therapy.

No two patients who are taking testosterone therapy are precisely alike. Even two men who start the exact same dose of testosterone therapy at the same time may achieve results differently because of their own unique makeup and metabolism. That is why we prescribe testosterone replacement on a very individualized basis to achieve maximum before and after results for each patient. 

The other thing you need to understand about testosterone therapy is that while you will see results, you will not suddenly have the physique of an Olympic athlete after your first testosterone injection.

The whole reason why testosterone therapy is prescribed as a course of daily treatments over a few months is that the benefits of testosterone injections are cumulative and take time to be achieved.

Overview of the Many Benefits of Testosterone Therapy

You can expect the before and after benefits of testosterone therapy to impact four major areas of your life:

  1. Your physical strength
  2. Your sexual performance
  3. Your cognitive and mental acuity

Each of these areas will improve after you have had testosterone therapy. Some of the specific benefits of testosterone replacement include:

As we have said, the before and after results of testosterone therapy take some time to achieve. However, most patients start to see some improvements within the first four to six weeks of treatment. In the first few weeks of testosterone treatment, most patients notice an improvement in sex drive and sexual performance, and improved mood states.

Here is a month-by-month breakdown of the before and after benefits of testosterone therapy.

You can now proudly in the mirror and see all of many positive before and after benefits of testosterone replacement therapy listed above and overall improved quality of life.

Are There Any Risks to Testosterone Replacement?

Like any kind of therapy or medical treatment, testosterone therapy is not without some risk and potential side effects. However, the many positive before and after benefits you can achieve from testosterone therapy far outweigh any potential risks.

If you have been diagnosed with low testosterone and do not begin testosterone replacement therapy, your testosterone will only continue to decline, and your symptoms to worsen. For most patients, the benefits of testosterone therapy far outweigh any possible risk.

Most of our patients go through their entire course of testosterone therapy with little or no problems. Any discomfort or side effects can usually be alleviated with a simple adjustment of your medication.

The best way to ensure that you achieve the maximum before and after results from your testosterone therapy is to follow your doctor’s instructions to the letter and make sure you report any side effects to your doctor.

Also, who you choose to get your testosterone therapy from can also make a significant difference in your results.
