Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT). Anyone currently doing it?

Lately my sex drive is way down. I'm 48 and up until about a year ago it was very high.

Anyone have experience with TRT and if so, what were the result? Would you recommend/discourage?

I don't know how safe it is, OP. Just go with meth.

Good advice R1. With the meth, OP, you don’t need to worry about a functioning hairdon either. Just smoke, lie back, and put out the “wide open for all cummers” sign near your left buttock. Sex problem solved.

Couldn't agree more, R2.

I thought it was a huge relief when my sex drive took a dive. I have no interest in artificially boosting it up again.

shots are the most economical and you feel it more but you get injections typically every two weeks, which can leave you a bit in the throes of the before and after...

there's implants but rarely used these days

patches - typically for the arm, back or stomach and rarely these days testicular. it can be difficult to keep on

gel & creams - but you risk transfer if not careful. . . and some believe it evaporates too quickly, so dosage can be a bit scattered.

there's pills, of course, but they carry higher risks for damage and cancer.

as to the dosage, it depends on your levels as to how much they'll prescribe... if you're buying offsource, then your best bet is to look at bodybuilding forums or men's health forums or male chromosomal disorders & diabetes or even ftm. there are a few 'trip report' sites that include information. Although you can also find medical tutorials on the subject for a proper break down and guesstimate. But it's all in your hands.

offsource - you should look into testing it but that can delay your time between dosages and the longer it stays in transit the more likely it is to be seized or damaged. Also, how it's suspended or other impurities man cause injection site swelling and has a greater risk for allergic reactions. Frankly, these days though it's easy enough to get a prescription. with added cost, you can do it online and there's usually find an unscrupulous clinic in a major city.

your age makes it easier but you might want to question if you've also experienced fatigue, depression, mood swings, muscle weakness, weight gain, poor body fat distribution, etc also wouldn't hurt if your testicles were on the small side or tended to hide upwards rather than in the scrotum.

Agreed, r4.

From Noel Coward's Present Laughter:

"To me the whole business is vastly overrated. I enjoy it for what it's worth and fully intend to go on doing so for as long as anybody's interested and when the time comes that they're not I shall be perfectly content to settle down with an apple and a good book!"
