Testosterone replacement therapy, or TRT, is an effective and safe way for men with low testosterone to maintain healthy levels of testosterone as they age or face medical conditions that deplete their testosterone levels. At Men’s Health of Mississippi, located in Madison, MS, our team of medical professionals has years of experience helping men with all their hormone needs. We offer a range of men’s health services in Madison and can work with you to diagnose if TRT is the right strategy for your specific hormone needs. Men’s Health of Mississippi is dedicated to providing you with all the information that you need about TRT, so you can be informed about if it is the right decision for your health. Here are some frequently asked questions about TRT that we often receive at our men’s health clinic:

Do you have to keep taking testosterone once you start?


No, you can stop taking testosterone replacement therapy whenever you would like. However, once TRT is stopped, low testosterone level symptoms will likely return, as your body will revert to low testosterone levels. Some of these symptoms of low testosterone could include low sex drive, fatigue, decreased energy, mood changes, and erectile dysfunction. If you do choose to stop taking TRT, it is important to recognize that your low testosterone symptoms will likely start again, which can have an impact on your health and well-being. At Men’s Health of Mississippi, our team can walk you through the pros and cons of stopping TRT once you start. While it can be the right decision for some men, low testosterone symptoms are a reality.

What happens if you suddenly stop taking testosterone injections?


Testosterone is a very powerful and effective hormone for hair and muscle growth, mood stabilization, and sexual drive for men. If you suddenly stop TRT, the symptoms of low testosterone will be very obvious and can be especially difficult to deal with for older men or those who are on higher testosterone dosage. It is important to consider these symptoms of low testosterone that will emerge if you stop testosterone injections, as they are difficult to deal with. If you are looking to stop taking testosterone injections, slowly lowering the dosage of testosterone can be one approach to reducing the jarring symptoms of low testosterone. When you come into Men’s Health of Mississippi for your TRT appointment or consultation, we can come up with a dosage and treatment plan that works for your specific needs and goals, and answer any questions that you may have about stopping testosterone injections.

How long does it take for natural testosterone levels to return after TRT?


Depending on how long you have been on TRT and the dosage of testosterone that you have received, the time that it takes for natural testosterone to come back after TRT will vary per person. For men who have been on TRT for a longer amount of time, it can take 4 months or more for normal testosterone levels to return, while men who have just had one round of TRT will have a faster bounce back to natural testosterone levels.

How long should someone be on testosterone therapy?


This is one of the most common questions that we receive at Men’s Health of Mississippi, and the answer is that it depends on the person and if TRT is benefiting them. For some men with very low testosterone who may be older, staying on TRT for a longer period can be a great decision. For others, if TRT is not benefiting them as much or they are experiencing less severe low testosterone symptoms, a shorter amount of time on TRT can be the right approach. Our medical team at Men’s Health of Mississippi can provide you with a better idea of the right approach for TRT, according to your personal testosterone needs.
