How long does it take to feel the effects of testosterone replacement therapy for a teenager with hypogonadism?
Depends on levels: I usually see improvement by the second or third injection and that tends to correlate largely on serum levels.

Testosterone Effects: The ester will determine half life but feeling/seeing effects really depends on other hormones and enzymes interacting on the testosterone. Assume 2-3 weeks to determine noticeable effects; maybe sooner for test prop but again, it depends wildly for individual. If you dont see/feel changes you may have to switch delivery (inject vs cream), frequency or check other hormone interaction. ...Read more
