If you’re among the thousands of men suffering from low levels of testosterone, it’s important to know that you’re not alone. Recent studies have shown that testosterone levels naturally drop in men between the ages of twenty-five and seventy-five, which can have a significant impact on your health. At The Men’s Vitality Center in Tempe, we’ve helped hundreds of men replace lost hormones through testosterone replacement therapy.

Testosterone replacement therapy is a great treatment option for men who suffer from low testosterone levels. While TRT is available in many forms, some of the more popular treatment solutions include:

Testosterone Skin Patches

Testosterone skin patches are a great option for men suffering from low testosterone. These medicated patches are absorbed directly through your skin to help your body reach normal testosterone levels.

Testosterone Gels

Testosterone gels are administered through the skin for the treatment of low testosterone levels.

Testosterone Injections

If you suffer from low levels of testosterone, your primary care physician may recommend testosterone injections to bring your levels up. There are two primary injectable choices to choose from: testosterone enanthate and testosterone cypionate. For most men, 100mg a week is enough for an effective testosterone treatment.

What To Expect From Testosterone Replacement Therapy

Low testosterone treatment is a great way for men to mitigate, halt and even reverse the effects of low testosterone levels. Many of the patients we treat at the Men’s Vitality Center in Tempe feel an increase in sex drive, performance, and energy after TRT treatment. If you’re considering testosterone replacement therapy, you’ll likely start to notice the many benefits within a few weeks of treatment. Some of these benefits include:
