What Are Testosterone Injections?
Authentic testosterone injections are bio-identical replicas of the testosterone that both the male and female bodies naturally produce. When working with a clinic like Kingsberg Medical for testosterone replacement therapy (TRT), the only shots they will use with their patients are ones that were created within highly controlled laboratory atmospheres where they are sure to be 100 percent pure. There will never be any bacterial residue or anything else that would make them less than completely real, uncontaminated and safe.
These are the highest quality testosterone injections:
- Testosterone Cypionate
- Testosterone Enanthate
- Testosterone Propionate
Testosterone Injections For Men And Women
When testosterone levels become too low (also called low T) in either gender, symptoms may begin occurring. Some people have very minimal problems when this happens, but others will have very serious issues that impede upon their quality of life.
Testosterone is considered to be the most important male hormone, but women need a little amount of it too in order to experience optimal health. So, this is not only a male hormone.
When low T is discovered through the proper blood testing, testosterone injections for men can be doctor prescribed at just the right dosage in order to give relief to men who are suffering with problems related to missing the right amount of this hormone. Doctors almost never prescribe testosterone injections for women, as women do not need a lot. Females will be prescribed a topical cream to self administer instead.
The benefits of testosterone injections are to eliminate the symptoms of low T. These include:
|Boosting energy||Elimination of erectile dysfunction|
|Increase in stamina||Elimination of hot flashes and night sweats|
|Weight loss (especially around the belly)||An increase in sexual libido and desire|
|Faster metabolism||Less vaginal dryness|
|Increase in muscle mass||Longer lasting erections|
|Stronger bone density||Stronger orgasms|
|Decrease in risk for bone fractures , breakage or osteoporosis||Stronger mental acuity including better concentration and better focus|
|A healthier heart with less risk for heart attack and stroke||More stable emotions and a decrease in mood swings|
|A healthier heart rate||Less irritability and agitation|
|A stronger immune system||Less depression|
|Less sickness including colds and the flu||Less anxiety|
|Faster recovery from illness, wounds or injury||Less mental fogginess|
|Increased endurance||More clarity for decision making|
|Hair growth||Growing organs (including the brain)|
|Nail growth||Stronger skin elasticity|
|Less wrinkles and crow’s feet||Less sagging skin|
Being aware of the possible side effects of testosterone injections is important simply to be an educated consumer. Problems with the injections prescribed by the professionals at Kingsberg Medical are so rare, but just in case something does happen, their doctors are readily available to change dosages or even medications.
Here are some side effects of testosterone injections for men and since we know that shots are not given to women, there will not be any side effects of testosterone injections for women. However, there could be issues from creams. So, here is what to look for:
|Nausea||Changes in skin color|
|Vomiting||Decrease in size of male testicles|
|Stomach cramping||Swelling in male breasts|
|Hives||Problems with ejaculation|
|Swelling, itching or redness at injection site||Pressure felt in chest|
|Swelling, itching or redness at site where cream is applied||The inability to speak suddenly or slurred speech|
|Swelling of lips, tongue, gums, mouth or face||Blurry vision|
|Swelling of hands, feet, ankles or legs||Shortness of breath|
|Bleeding gums||Weakness on one single side of the body|
|Fruity taste in mouth||Depression or melancholy|
|Blood in urine or stool||Dizziness|
|Dark colored urine or stool||Dysphoria|
|Tooth pain||Strong emotions|
|Inability to sleep||Tingly sensations|
|Inability to stay focused||Indigestion|
|Heartbeat that is unusually fast or slow||Ulcers in the mouth|
|Abnormal changes in the female menstrual cycle||Male patterned growth of hair on a female’s chest or chin|
Some of these side effects from testosterone injections are more serious than others; however, they all should be taken seriously. If any of the above mentioned issues are felt, a patient is advised to immediately call their clinical advisor or seek out the emergency room if it is after hours. Negative side effects are indeed rare, but they must be known when partaking in testosterone replacement therapy.Brian Leeber
