Low Testosterone Treatments

Reasonable Expectations With Low Testosterone Treatments

Despite what you might have heard, testosterone replacement is not a fountain of youth or a miracle cure-all. It will not make you young again. It will not give you bulky muscles or help excess pounds melt away quickly without any effort on your part. It will not allow you to work too much, play too much, and still have energy to spare. It will not rejuvenate your love life.
 
What you can expect, as your levels return to a range that is normal for you, is an improvement in the low testosterone symptoms that are directly related to the problem. This means, perhaps, your energy levels returning to normal. It might mean a return to your normal interest in sex and your normal ability to perform sexually. It might mean the ability to maintain a normal muscle mass and normal amount of body fat, according to your activity and eating levels.
 
Do not fall under the assumption that if a little is good, more is better. Increasing your testosterone dosage beyond what your healthcare provider recommends will not help you achieve more noticeable results. What it will do is increase your risk for side effects, including potentially dangerous ones.
 

Nontestosterone Treatments for Low Testosterone

In a man with low testosterone and a low sperm count, using testosterone replacement therapy alone will not improve his fertility. If improved fertility is desired, there are other forms of treatment (usually involving other hormonal imbalances) that can address the actual cause of the low testosterone and low sperm count. The specific treatment used will vary, depending on the cause.
