How to Get TRT

How to Get TRT Safely: The Role of Urologists in Managing Hormone Therapy

Testosterone replacement therapy, or TRT, can be an excellent option for men struggling with the symptoms of low testosterone, like decreased libido and fatigue. But you may be wondering, is TRT safe? Here is everything you need to know about how to get TRT safely so that you can get back to feeling your best!

What is TRT?

Testosterone is essential for men’s overall health and well-being. It is also necessary for muscle and bone health, memory, red blood cell and sperm formation, and sexual and reproductive health. Testosterone replacement therapy can be a safe and effective option for men struggling with these symptoms. It restores testosterone to its normal levels and helps to reverse the symptoms of low testosterone.

Testosterone Treatments

TRT is available in many forms to help you regain your health and vitality. Testosterone treatment can be completely individualized, and what is best for you may differ from someone else. Here are the most commonly prescribed testosterone treatment forms.

  • Testosterone Pellets: Testosterone pellets are tiny implants placed under the skin that slowly release testosterone into the bloodstream over a few months before they dissolve. The pellets are easily placed during a painless, simple procedure at your doctor’s office.
  • Testosterone Injections: Testosterone injections are typically given every two weeks to maintain testosterone levels.
  • Testosterone Patches: Testosterone patches are changed daily and secrete testosterone through the skin, which is then transferred into the bloodstream.
  • Testosterone Creams: Testosterone creams are applied daily to the skin of the shoulder, upper arms, or thighs and then absorbed into the bloodstream.
  • Oral Testosterone Pills: Oral testosterone pills are not commonly used, but if recommended by your doctor, testosterone pills are taken twice a day.

What are the Benefits of TRT

  • Increased muscle mass and improved bone health
  • Increased energy and endurance
  • Reduced anxiety
  • Fewer symptoms of depression
  • Improved memory and concentration
  • Increased sexual desire and libido
  • Improvement in erectile dysfunction
  • Increased sense of well-being

How to Get TRT

If you’ve been diagnosed with low testosterone or think you may have it, you may want to know how to get it. Many med spas and men’s health clinics offer testosterone replacement therapy, but is it safe?

The safest place to get TRT is in a urologist’s office. Urologists are medical doctors who have undergone advanced training in treating all conditions that may affect the urinary tract or male reproductive organs. Because of this advanced training, urologists are uniquely qualified to administer and monitor for potential side effects of TRT.

As doctors, urologists are trained to interpret your blood levels to determine if your treatment is effective and look for signs that your TRT may be causing some side effects. They will also ensure that low testosterone is the real cause of your symptoms, as it could be another medical condition.

Although typically very safe, TRT can have some significant side effects that should be watched for. Routine blood draws are essential to monitor for blood count changes that could indicate serious side effects of TRT, such as blood clots and prostate cancer. If your TRT is not being monitored correctly, the early blood work changes seen with these conditions may not be noticed, which could result in a delay in treatment and serious complications.

Talk With a Urologist About TRT

If you are considering TRT to improve your overall health and well-being, the next best step is to schedule an appointment with an experienced urologist.
