Testosterone Results Before and After
Adults who have been suffering from reduced energy, low libido, mental fog, and muscle loss before diagnosis with Low T find incredible results after they start treatment with testosterone therapy.
Numerous studies in the US and internationally have documented the positive benefits of testosterone use, both in men and women. Although most traditionally associated with male sexuality and physical performance, the use of testosterone replacement therapy in menopausal women has had tremendous results in recent years. Since the risks related to the standard gynecological use of synthetic estrogen treatments are not present in bioidentical testosterone usage for women, this rapidly emerging field of medicine is becoming mainstream.
The typical timeline of testosterone results after treatment begins is most often associated with male usage since that has been the subject of more studies over the past few decades. Therefore, in the timeline below, it will be the benefits that are achieved by men that will be discussed.
In order to fully understand the way in which women will receive the desired benefits, know that the effects, as with males, are cumulative. As the treatment progresses, the testosterone results will continue to build. A general idea of what to expect can be seen in the next section, although it is essential to point out that any type of hormone replacement therapy (HRT) is subjective. Each person reacts to a deficiency in a unique way, and treatment responses will also be on a personal level.
It is imperative to get a proper blood test completed before beginning any course of hormone replacement therapy. Raising hormone levels higher than their natural points could result in adverse side effects. That is why doctors specializing in HRT will always perform these tests before giving a diagnosis and prescribing any type of treatment.
How Long Does it Take to See Testosterone Treatment Results?
In order to see the actual results of testosterone treatment, a person must first visit a local lab for the required blood test, and have the results from a current physical examination sent to our clinic. Once the blood test and physical exam results are in, the doctor can compare this information with the health history form that the client filled out to determine how severe the effects of Low T are. This will enable a diagnosis and dosage plan to be put into place.
The actual testosterone cycle results that each person will notice are going to be highly individualized, although there are some general guidelines to follow that will help to show if a person is on track in this department.

The results of taking testosterone below may become evident as early as 12 weeks into the treatment cycle, stabilizing at any point between six and twelve months from the onset of testosterone therapy and showing signs of possible improvement over coming years.
- Noticeable improvements in fat reduction
- Increased lean muscle mass and strength
Results after 5 month
- Although there are no new benefits to report this month, there will continue to be an overall strengthening of everything that has come before.
Results after 6 month
- Improved bone mineral density, continuing on for a period of up to 3 years or longer (this is also responsible for a decrease in the risk of developing osteoporosis)
Further testosterone replacement therapy results show regrowth or thickening of hair, improved drive and motivation, and increased focus and cognitive functions. These changes are also cumulative, and will occur for each person at some point during their treatment period.
Testosterone Before and After
When exploring the general benefits of testosterone after treatment begins, please remember that the human body is a highly advanced creation and is unique unto itself. No two individuals will ever process anything, age, feel, or experience in the same manner. That is why hormone therapy is customized for the individual based solely on personal needs.
In order to achieve positive testosterone replacement results with the least chance of adverse reactions, it is imperative to work with an expert in the hormone replacement field. This provides a person with a practitioner with a high level of knowledge and experience treating these types of conditions and changes.
Never settle for being told that symptoms are associated with aging until a specialist runs the necessary blood tests to rule out hormone deficiency and some other medical concerns.
