How does testosterone therapy work?

Testosterone is a hormone produced by both men and women. Men have much higher rates of this chemical messenger, which is responsible for sex drive, bone and muscle development, and sperm production.

Over the years, a man’s natural testosterone production levels will decline. This can lead to hormonal imbalance, which creates several changes in the body.

Just because declining hormone production is a natural part of the aging process doesn’t mean you have to accept these changes as an inevitable part of growing older. Testosterone therapy helps many men feel more comfortable and function at peak levels, no matter their age.

Testosterone therapy works by delivering a stream of supplemental synthetic testosterone into your system. Therapy strives to regain the proper balance and support optimal function. Extensive research shows that testosterone therapy is safe and effective when managed by a skilled health professional.

What are some signs I might need testosterone therapy?

Knowing what to look for can help you know when it’s time to seek professional assistance. Some of the signs of low testosterone include:

  • Low sex drive
  • Erectile dysfunction
  • Loss of muscle mass
  • Enlarged breast tissue
  • Cognitive problems
  • Shrinking testicles
  • Weight gain
  • Loss of endurance

For many men, infertility is the first sign of low testosterone. If you and your partner have been trying to conceive and not achieving your goals, simple lab testing can determine if low testosterone might be to blame.
