Hi docs, would i grow mass if my testosterone increases?

Hi docs, would i grow mass if my testosterone increases?

Maybe (not) . . .: Many variables to consider. How high is your current testosterone level? If it's already "normal", more won't necessarily increase "mass". Speaking of which, what "mass" are you hoping to grow? Assuming muscle, you also need to accompany your increased testosterone w/adequate nutrition as well as exercise. Bumping up your T then sitting in your recliner won't do anything for body composition. ...Read more

I'm 16 and 5ft tall, if I started to transition into a man using testosterone treatment could I grow a couple more inches?

5ft tall: Five foot tall is a bit low for your age unless your parents have that height.
Please have your Mom or Dad take you to the doctor for advice and management.

Feel free to contact me if you have any questions about possibility of becoming a doctor! ...Read more

Sense your testosterone drops as you grow older, will you ever have less testosterone as an older person than you did before you hit puberty?

Sense your testosterone drops as you grow older, will you ever have less testosterone as an older person than you did before you hit puberty?

Possible...: Testosterone production peaks and plateaus around age 30. Afterwards, it slowly declines by roughly 1% every year, but usually still maintains at its normal lows with reasonable manhood in life. But, some may be functionally affected by low t. How to interpret low t? It can be tricky and needs to correlate with overall functionality and other comorbid conditions such as diabetes, obesity, thyroid. ...Read more

Does your testosterone level relate to how much hair you grow?

Does your testosterone level relate to how much hair you grow?

Indirect relation: We know that giving someone excess testosterone can increase body & facial hair. If we give just enough testosterone to someone w/hypogonadism (low t), it shouldn't affect hair growth much, unless that testosterone is converted into dihydrotestosterone, which can cause male pattern baldness. Don't forget that genetics & ethnicity play a role in hair growth, too. ...Read more

Does your testosterone level determine how much hair you grow on your body?

Does your testosterone level determine how much hair you grow on your body?

Yes & no: Testosterone is both anabolic & androgenic. Androgenic is what gives you male characteristics. Testosterone is also broken down into Dht (dihydrotestosterone) which is purely androgenic. Too much Dht can cause male pattern hair loss. But after all this, don't forget that genetics also has a major role in hair growth. Think of your family & your ethnicity when it comes to genetics. ...Read more

I want to reduce my testosterone levels to grow breasts(mtf transition),how can i do this?

If testicles shrink from using testosterone when u stop will theu grow back?

Yes...once TRT stops: Rx testosterone {exogenous} will cause a feedback inhibition of spermatogenesis and possible "shrinkage" of the testes.

You have 4 options:

1) discontinue testosterone replacement therapy and the testicles will go back to baseline
2) continue with trt
3) use HCG as trt
4) continue trt with low dose HCG supplementation - off label

I am 25 year old, want to know why i can't grow full beard. I can grow only goatee my dad and bro have full beard. Should i check testosterone level?

Personal variation: That may be just you, unique. As long as you retain adequate manhood, sex desire, and proper size of testes, i predict your testosterone will be just fine and i would not obsess with what you have in mind.

Of course, if anxiety persists and intensifies, see an expert for counseling and evaluation. ...Read more

Does it mean that i have low Testosterone because i can't grow back hair?

No: Many men don't grow much hair on their backs. The amount of body hair a man grows is primarily genetically determined. If you're the only male in your family (both your mom's and dad's families) without much hair on your back, asking your doctor to check a testosterone level may be reasonable. ...Read more

EStrogen: Your obesity is the problem not the lack of testosterone. You have to be honest with yourself and keep a food diary and change your lifestyle completely. If you are eating more than 1800 calories and if most of your calories are carbohydrates then you will not lose weight and the fat cells will continue to make estrogen. ...Read more

I'm injecting 500mg weekly testosterone enanthate for bodybuilding purposes. Could that make a 6 month old keloid on tragus grow larger?

I'm injecting 500mg weekly testosterone enanthate for bodybuilding purposes. Could that make a 6 month old keloid on tragus grow larger?

Unknown: I don't know the answer to your question, but the effect of high dose testosterone on a keloid should be the least of your worries. I would be a lot more concerned about what it is doing to your heart, liver, blood counts, risk of blood clots, etc. I will never understand why a young male would risk having severe long term complications to achieve a short term goal of having larger muscles. ...Read more

I was taking a medicine for a month that made my testosterone raise and i experienced hair loss so i quit taking it. Will my hair grow back?

It should . . .: So let me get this straight. You're a 26yo female who was prescribed testosterone? Hair loss associated w/t is due to excess t being converted into Dht (dihydrotestosterone). Once that level drops back to normal, hair loss should resolve. Of course, hair loss might also be coincidental to another health stressor. Best to chat w/prescribing doc re medication side effects. ...Read more

My bf has low testosterone levels (hinted by his inability to grow facial hair), how can his libido be so high?

May not be low T: There are a number of causes for lack of facial hair growth and low t is only one. Genetics play a big role as can some medical illnesses. Some men just never seem to grow facial hair and a particular causes is never found. I remember being in china and having little kids pulling the hair on my arms because they had never seen arm hair before. They laughed and squealed. It was fun. ...Read more

That value can easily be checked by a simple blood test. ...Read more

After treatment of undescended testicles how long will it take for them produce testosterone and make me grow facial hair, more pubic hair etc. ?

Depends: Testosterone production in the undescended testicle is often normal. If you had both testicles undescended, and you have only just had the surgery, you should get a serum testosterone done. You might have additional problems with the testicles overall function. Additional blood work or genetic testing may be needed if the testosterone is low. ...Read more
