It does not mean that when you have high levels of testosterone you can already become fertile.
Fertility is related to sperm motility and in the study of medical doctors from Thailand, testosterone supplementation can indeed increase sperm motility.
In the same study, it was reported that patients who used testosterone hormone replacement therapy were able to achieve a 20% increase in sperm motility and viability, or the ability of sperm to live.
3) Reduce sexual dysfunctions
One of the main reasons why patients dive into the use of testosterone hormone therapy is because of their sexual disabilities.
According to a study by medical doctors from Texas, testosterone treatment is effective in reducing risks of erectile dysfunction and can increase the libido of a man.
In fact, a study published in the Journal of Family Practice reveals testosterone pills can also increase or improve the libido of postmenopausal women.
Moreover, in the same study, increased libido in men and women may also increase their well-being.
Different Ways to Take Testosterone
Patients who want to undergo a testosterone hormone replacement may choose from different administration ways. Some of these include:
Injectable testosterone therapy
Supplements or pills
Intranasal testosterone replacement
Pellets (being planted under the skin)
Take note that the best administration way for you can be determined by a medical doctor.
For this reason, it is advised to seek medical help to get more information about your treatment option.
Indeed, having enough testosterone levels is essential for your body.
Moreover, thinking about the effectiveness of testosterone therapy may be confusing especially when data without any claims are what you are only reading.
Therefore, when you want to undergo a testosterone replacement, you have to make sure that the product offers a science-based claim, depending on what medical condition you would like to use the product for.
A medical doctor or a healthcare professional can help you choose one that can fit your health needs.
