01 Aug What’s The Cost Of Testosterone Replacement Therapy?
The pandemic has caused many of us to rethink how we address our health. For some men, that may mean considering testosterone replacement therapy. Is it right for you? Is the cost of testosterone replacement therapy affordable? Keep reading to learn more!
What is testosterone replacement therapy, and what does it treat?
Testosterone is a male steroid hormone most commonly known to be linked to a healthy sex drive. This hormone also affects body fat, bone density, muscle mass, mood, and red blood cell count. As men age, testosterone production levels can begin to decline. Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT) is a treatment that supplements testosterone to the body to bring levels within a normal range.
Signs that your testosterone levels may be low include:
- Reduced sex drive, decreased sperm count, or erectile dysfunction (ED)
- Depression or anxiety
- Hot flashes
- Weight gain
- Breast swelling
- Changes in genital size
If you think you may have low testosterone levels, you should speak to your doctor about having a testosterone level test done to confirm whether your levels are low, or just normal effects of aging. TRT can increase red blood cell count, so it’s important to consult a doctor to make sure TRT won’t make you sick.
TRT is a process designed to restore testosterone levels in cisgendered men. If you are looking to transition your gender, you should seek out healthcare professionals specializing in masculinizing hormone therapy.
What types of treatment are available, and how much do they cost?
TRT treatments come in a number of forms, including:
- Oral medications
- Topical gels, creams, or ointments
- Skin implants
- Oral tinctures (to be rubbed on gums)
TRT treatments can range from $20-$1000/month depending on a number of factors. Your location can affect the cost and availability of treatments, including the cost of transportation and time spent getting to appointments. TRT treatments can also vary greatly in price depending on which method of administration you choose. For example, injections are typically less expensive than other methods. Some options may not have generic versions available, which can make them significantly more expensive.
While TRT does boost testosterone levels, it does not treat the issue causing levels to be low. This means that supplementing testosterone may become a permanent part of your general wellness routine.
