Many men consider testosterone replacement therapy because they’re experiencing symptoms of low T such as low energy levels, sleeplessness, and reduced sex drive. Some decide against seeking TRT because of myths they hear or read online. It’s unfortunate because low testosterone levels can affect a person’s quality of life without treatment.
The misconceptions about testosterone therapy persist in part because some people pursue hormone replacement therapy for low T without supervision from a medical professional who is trained to monitor HRT. They then spread the news of their unwanted side effects in online forums, perpetuating myths about TRT.
Even though low-T affects more than 5 million men in the U.S. alone, the average guy really doesn’t know much about the condition. There are a lot of low-T misconceptions, from assuming that a testosterone deficiency is a normal part of aging (false) to thinking of testosterone replacement as a virtual fountain of youth. Many men have turned to increasing their testosterone levels (whether through lifestyle changes, supplements, or pharmaceuticals) to give them confidence, fight aging, raise physical or mental performance, and generally help them feel their best.
