Please tell me how long it takes for to feel the effects of a testosterone injection?

individual. If you don't see/feel changes you may have to switch delivery (inject vs cream), frequency or check other hormone interaction. ...Read more

Which is more effective? Testosterone injection or androgel?

Which is more effective? Testosterone injection or androgel?

Gel vs injection: Testosterone replacement therapy, or trt, can be done with shots (typically administered every 2-3 weeks) or a daily application of a gel or cream. Both methods are fda-approved. Shots increase t levels rapidly and taper off slowly until the next shot. The topical method, in my opinion, is superior in that it mimics more closely how t is secreted naturally by your body. ...Read more

My testosterone is low. Had third injection of Aveed today. Looking for reviews of this product from users. Any info is appreciated?

Low T: The best, least expensive, way to get your testosterone under control is to have an injection of 200 mg every two weeks. You would start in your doctor's office but soon proceed for you or your wife to inject you at home every two weeks.
Effects of testosterone should be measured every three months initially but that will soon help you to know how much to take and how often. ...Read more

If I can raise my testosterone level fom 306 naturally will I still have the same side effects as the injections?

Yes, if possible...: Raising serum testosterone with natural supplement is still an unreachable dream although many "naturally" herbal companies have constantly touted their such products online. What they have done serve them well for political correctness and commercialism with no scientifically documented effect. For one at 79, life should come first ahead of anything else. Detailing? Ask and talk with doc timely. ...Read more

How safe are testosterone injections (low doses) for women over the age of 40. What benefits should I expect and side effects? Thank u

Not FDA approved: Testosterone injections are not approved for use in women. Neither are patches or gels/creams/lotions. There are some oral combination hormone pills for menopausal women which contain both estrogen & T but they're not widely prescribed. Benefits & side effects are similar regardless of gender. However, do beware of virilization, hirsutism, clitoromegaly etc if excess T. Discuss w/your FamilyDoc. ...Read more

Is there different types of testosterones that will cause a rapid heartbeat a few hours after injection more than others? How can this be prevented?

Not to my understand: While people react differently to different medications, there's no way of knowing in advance which testosterone will cause what side effect. All the hormone preparations list tachycardia or fast heart rate as a side effect. There's no specific way to mitigate these side effects but generic cardiac meds can be used. Talk to your prescriber or use HealthTap Prime to discuss your individual case. ...Read more

Testosterone injection every 10 days didn't helped me in the past, is the gel or other form of testosterone application more efficient than injection?

Testosterone injection every 10 days didn't helped me in the past, is the gel or other form of testosterone application more efficient than injection?

Discuss symptoms: Most common reason a treatment "doesn't help" is because patient and doctor have different ideas of what the problem is. Low t mostly causes fatigue, depression and loss of muscle mass. Erectile dysfunction is rarely due to low testosterone alone. Often men ask for testosterone and then are disappointed if erections don't improve after taking - if that is concern, talk more frankly with your dr. ...Read more
