There is so much information available online, and not all of it is entirely reliable. So we’ve taken the bore out of research for you and here, are the top ten myths and facts about TRT for men.
CAN TRT GIVE ME MORE ENERGY?
Yes, it can. It can also help in your fight to lose weight and increase your sex drive.
ARE THERE RISKS TO TRT?
As with any medical treatment, there are a few potential risks so it’s really important that you speak with one of our consultants to discuss the right solutions for you.
WHEN SHOULD I AVOID TRT?
If you have any of the following conditions, you may be advised to not take TRT:
- Sleep Apnea
- If you have an enlarged prostate
- Serious congestive heart failure
- Above normal red blood cells
WILL TRT MAKE ME OVERLY AGGRESSIVE?
Not necessarily. As the demand for TRT increases, further studies will be done but at this time there is no conclusive scientific link between TRT and increased aggression. This symptom usually presents in men with higher than “normal” levels of aggression without TRT.
TRT WILL CAUSE ERECTILE DYSFUNCTION (OR CURE IT)
No on both counts, although TRT has been reported to give men a very nice boost in sexual desire and performance (you’re welcome) as well as stronger and harder erections, erectile dysfunction (ED) can be linked to many underlying conditions, most notably stress and anxiety-related.
TRT IS THE FOUNTAIN OF YOUTH
Yeah…no. However, if you are usually a sedate type of guy you’re not going to suddenly become SuperMan by taking TRT. But if you are already working out, living well and embracing a healthy lifestyle, TRT will make you feel like your younger self again.
IT IS SAFE TO ORDER TRT SUPPLEMENTS ONLINE

TRT WILL SHRINK MY TESTICLES
Because your brain will get the message that it doesn’t need testosterone from your testicles, some men have reported testicle shrinkage – but never fear HCG is a drug that is administered along with TRT and this will keep your boys the right size right through treatment.
TRT INJECTIONS BURN
While some levels of discomfort can be expected, it is certainly not unmanageable and you’ll be in top form in no time at all.
TRT TAKES YOUR PERFORMANCE BACK TO YOUR 20s
So this one actually could be true, but as mentioned earlier you need to do your part. If you’re already in high-performance athletics or training then you’re definitely going to see and feel the difference, but if you’re a couch potato, while still enjoying some benefit, you’re not likely going to be pole-vaulting anytime soon.
