As men age, their testosterone will begin to drop and you may be interested in learning about testosterone replacement therapy, or TRT. It’s important that you understand exactly what this therapy is able to do and what other therapies may be an option. You may also want to consider Human Chorionic Gonadotropin, also known as HCG. It’s important to note what specific issues you may want to deal with and the side effects that might be associated with each therapy.
Learning About Testosterone Replacement Therapy
Testosterone levels can vary because of causes like aging, a change in sexual function, emotional changes, or physical changes. It’s important to talk to your doctor about what may be causing testosterone changes, because if there’s an underlying condition, it’s possible that treating that condition could help boost your testosterone levels.
It’s important to understand the risks that come with testosterone replacement therapy and discuss the benefits as well to determine if it’s the right option for you. HCG can be used to help the production of testosterone and sperm, so this could be an option if fertility is something that you’re struggling with.
HCG is also a viable option for young men that are born with a specific issue in the testes known as cryptorchidism. This can help raise their testosterone levels and help them develop on schedule and avoid any issues that may come with this birth problem.
TRT can come in the form of injections, patches, gels, or pellets and can help improve symptoms associated with low testosterone in men that deal with hypogonadism, which hinders the ability to produce a normal amount of testosterone.
