Determining if I have low Testosterone:

If you’re feeling any of the symptoms listed above and want to know if you have low levels of testosterone, it is important to get a comprehensive blood test and have a qualified medical provider interpret the results. The range of what is considered normal is not the range we determine if testosterone is a correct therapy for you or not. The normal range of testosterone ranges from the low 200’s to the high 900’s and the difference between someone is the mid 200’s is substantially different than a guy in the 800+ range. But total testosterone is not the only number to pay attention to. The free testosterone is the important number because this is a measurement of the amount of testosterone that is actually absorbed at the receptor site. Another important level to understand is your estradiol level because if you have too much estradiol then it makes the testosterone you are producing feel less effective because the estradiol will get in its way. I know this can sound confusing but that is why our testosterone experts are here to help you understand what testosterone therapy program is perfect for you.

Testosterone replacement therapy VS Testosterone boosting therapy:

When you start to use exogenous testosterone, which is testosterone in a form that’s introduced from outside the body like an injection, a topical or a pellet you create a negative feedback signal which basically tells your testicles that they do not need to do their jobs any longer. Over time this will shut down your testicles from ever making testosterone again, and if you decide to stop the testosterone therapy your testicles who’s jobs are to make testosterone and sperm are no longer able to work. This can create a dependency on testosterone and can even cause infertility.

If you are not prepared to make this commitment whether you are just not sure testosterone therapy is right for you or because you still want to have children in the future, testosterone boosting therapy may be a better option. Testosterone boosting therapy is the use of medications to stimulate the production and release of more testosterone from your testicles. These medications can be used alone or in combination with exogenous testosterone depending on your bloodwork to either preserve your testicle’s ability to still do their jobs down the road or to get them to maximize the natural testosterone levels your body is able to make. Medications like Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (HCG), Enclomiphene, or gonadotropin are all great options to include or use on their own for the purpose of testosterone boosting therapy.

medications we use:

  • Testosterone cypionate
  • Testosterone enanthate
  • Testosterone propionate
  • Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (HCG)
  • Gonadarelin
  • Enclomiphene
