It is hard to imagine men without Testosterone. It is the hormone that is produced in the testes and gives men their male characteristics. Not only this, it also governs sex drive and sexual function in men. It also controls the production of sperm and regulates fertility.
Testosterone production declines with age and depleting testosterone levels bring about a lot of body changes. Not only this, it also leads to changes in behavior. Most men experience mood swings and irritable behavior as they tend to get old.
Testosterone replacement is supposed to be the solution to all the problems that crop up because of a decline in testosterone production.
There is no questioning the efficacy of testosterone replacement in enhancing libido, improving erectile function, gaining lean muscle, reducing fat, elevating mood etc.,
Testosterone replacement is possible with the help of:
- gels and creams
- pills etc.,
Testosterone injections are applied to a muscle, normally the gluteal muscle (buttocks) every 3-4 weeks. The effects of such injections can be felt almost instantly. Some men call it the “boost” and like the feeling.
However, there can be some disadvantages as well.
First of all, these injections can be quite painful.Some men report Testogen results Before And After that this pain can last for weeks even after they have stopped taking these injections.
Some of the side effects that can result form high dosage include:
- gynaecomastia and increased frequency of penile erections
- male pattern baldness and acne
- retention of sodium, chloride, water, potassium, calcium, and inorganic phosphates
- increased or decreased libido, depression, anxiety etc.,
Testosterone gels and patches provide a constant level of hormone and are applied once daily. These are applied to clean and dry skin on the back, shoulders, upper arms, abdomen or thighs. Care must be taken taken and they should not be applied directly to the genitals. Moreover, you should avoid them on dry, broken or irritated skin.
