Unlike other clinics, we want our patients to know the whole truth of what testosterone replacement therapy consists of. Although there are an abundance of positive things that can come from proper testosterone injection treatments, there is also a slight risk of some side effects that can come with them. With any hormone therapy, there is a chance your body will not take the testosterone 100% as it should. That is when we adjust the amount and make sure that the body is handling it the way it should be.
Some side effects that may occur include:
- Prolonged erections
- Excess hair on different body parts
- Acne and oily skin
- Enlarged breasts in men
- Swollen prostate
- Decrease sperm count
- Sleep apnea
Some of these side effects can result from taking too much or too little testosterone. We will make sure to adjust the dosage accordingly, so our patients experience little to no side effects when taking the injections.
The overall goal of hormone replacement therapy is not to result in people looking like a body builder, but it is to get them to feeling like they have always wanted to. We want our clients to feel more well rested, healthier, and more confident than they ever have in their entire life. Although some of these side effects may be naturally make people nervous, we encourage them to come and learn about hormone replacement therapy and what we can accomplish with it together!
