What Happens When You Start Using TRT Therapy?

TRT, or Testosterone Replacement Therapy, has become increasingly popular over the last decade as research has implicated low testosterone as the root of many common wellness issues for older men. If you’re considering Testosterone Replacement Therapy, you may want to know more about the beginning stages of treatment. Here’s what to expect when you start using TRT therapy.

Early effects of TRT

Although TRT is considered a long-term treatment with peak benefits occurring with several months of regular use, there are a variety of positive benefits commonly reported in as little as one month of treatment.

Higher libido

Many patients report a nearly immediate change to their libido (or sex drive) when beginning TRT Desire relies on androgen receptors in the brain, which are activated by the hormone testosterone. If you’ve been experiencing low T, these adrenergic receptors are likely firing far less than they should be, if at all. Most patients also report improved quality and persistence of erections.

Enhanced energy

Two of the most common symptoms of low testosterone that lead men to seek treatment are fatigue and lethargy. Researchers aren’t entirely sure what causes the link between energy levels and testosterone, but many suspect it involves stimulating mitochondrial cells to produce more energy. Restored or enhanced daily energy levels were reported by over 52% of TRT patients in 2019.

Better sleep

Like many hormone imbalances, having low testosterone can wreak havoc on your quality and length of rest. Research at the University of Montreal discovered low testosterone inhibits synchronization in the brain, a vital process for deep, restorative sleep.

Long-term effects of TRT

As you continue Testosterone Replacement Therapy, your body will reach and begin to adapt to healthy hormone levels. This can look different from patient to patient, but generally, TRT patients report significant benefits.

Faster muscle growth and recovery from exercise

Enhanced muscle growth is one of the most reliable results of TRT. Muscles are packed with androgen receptors, which are triggered by testosterone to grow.

Additionally, many patients report reduced inflammation and soreness after exercise, allowing them to exercise more frequently and at higher intensities than ever before.

Changing body composition

Not only does testosterone replacement therapy increase the growth rate of muscles, but it may also burn fat. A recent study found that men taking TRT lost weight over long-term use.

What side effects of TRT can you expect?

Like almost all therapies, TRT comes with its own set of side effects to consider before starting treatment. While serious side effects are rare, you should always consult a doctor before you start using TRT therapy.

Potential side effects to be aware of when starting TRT include:

  • Changes to skin type
  • Swelling in the feet and ankles
  • Potentially lowered sperm count
  • Benign prostatic hyperplasia
