Testosterone injections are injections of isolated testosterone. This hormone is present in both males and females, but the levels are naturally higher in males.
TESTOSTERONE THERAPY IN MALES
We may recommend testosterone injections to treat males with low testosterone levels. Low testosterone production by the testicles is called hypogonadism.
Low testosterone can have negative effects. The symptoms of low testosterone in males include a lower sperm count, a decrease in bone or muscle mass, increased body fat, poor sleep, low energy, brain fog, low libido and erectile dysfunction.
When treating hypogonadism, testosterone therapy can have the following benefits:
improved sexual function and libido
increased lean muscle mass and strength
better cognitive function
possible reduction in osteoporosis
increased energy and endurance
