Testosterone Injections - A Feel Good Treatment

Testosterone is a steroid hormone belonging to the group of androgens and primarily responsible for the development of male sexual organs and characteristics. When the levels of this vital male hormone is low, sex drive decreases and one feels a sense of illness, depression and a host of other mental changes like mood swings.

Testosterone injections are done to combat conditions that arise from low testosterone (called hypogonadism). We will not be looking into details about low T as this is not part of our topic.

Common symptoms of low testosterone have been given here. Take a look.

Testosterone Injections

Testosterone Cypionate is injected into the muscles, usually in the buttocks, to account for the low testosterone in the body. It should be noted however that testosterone injections can have multiple side effects and proper recommendation should be taken from a physician before taking the treatment.

When you have experienced symptoms of low T, it is advisable to take a blood test to determine if your testosterone levels are low. This can be done from any blood clinic and costs very little. Your physician will then recommend the best possible testosterone replacement therapy, usually testosterone cypionate intramuscular injections.
