When it comes to how fast you can expect testosterone injections to work, you must have patience. The idea behind testosterone therapy, and in particular, testosterone injections, is to accumulate benefits slowly over time.
For men that have been suffering the impact of low testosterone, it is necessary that we introduce your system to increased testosterone a little at a time. This allows your body, and your entire system, to adapt correctly to the increased presence of testosterone in the blood. Doing so any oither way, could throw off the delicate balance of all of your hormones, and do more harm than good.
This all having been said, do not take that to mean that you have to wait a very long time for your testosterone injections to work. Most men start to see improvements within the very first weeks of taking testosterone injections.
How Do Testosterone Injections Work?
Testosterone injections are designed to replace the testosterone that is no longer being produced by your body in adequate amounts. Testosterone shots can return your testosterone levels to normal very quickly. Raising the level of testosterone in your blood, is actually accomplished in a single shot. Just raising the level is not how testosterone injection therapy works.
The reason why it takes some time for testosterone injections to work, and why they must be spread out over time, is because your body has to get used to the new influx of testosterone, and it takes time for it to react properly, and acclimate to the effects of the new levels of testosterone.
If you ever feel that your testosterone injections are not working, it is probably only your body taking a little more time to adjust to the new presence of the higher level of testosterone in your system.
How Soon Can I Expect Results From Testosterone Injections?
Testosterone injection therapy, when prescribed correctly, usually works for most men. Following all of your doctors instructions, will help you achieve the best results from your testosterone injections, over the shortest amount of time. The first benefit that most men taking testosterone injections discover, is an improvement in sexual function.
After that, as you continue over the course of the next six months of taking testosterone injection therapy, you can expect to:
Have more energy
Look and feel stronger
Get more out of working out
Lose weight, burn fat, and build more lean muscle
See improvements in your hair and skin
Feel more stable emotionally, with less depression and anxiety
Think clearer, be able to focus more, and perform better at cognitive task
Many men even report that they perform better at work, and their success and income increases, after they have completed a course of testosterone injection therapy.
Since testosterone injections are prescribed on a very individualized basis, results will vary. However, many patients say they start to see improvements in strength and energy in as little as two weeks of taking testosterone injections. Many patients notice emotional or mood changes earlier than major physical changes. In as little as 3 to 4 weeks on testosterone replacement therapy, men report feeling more calm, less anxious, less depressed and less irritable.
What Can I Do to Speed Up the Results of Testosterone Injections?
Do not make the mistake of thinking you can get results faster from testosterone by taking more than your prescribed dose, or giving yourself testosterone injections more often than directed by your doctor. Testosterone injections are prescribed very precisely. Your dose has been given to you based on your test results and medical history, to be the safest and most effective does of testosterone for you. Trying to force faster results by taking more than your prescribed amount, not only will not work but could be dangerous.
That having been said, there are some things you can do to make sure you are getting the best results from your testosterone injections. Some testosterone doctors recommended massaging the injection site, to help move the testosterone into your body. Check your particular prescription to see if the drug manufacturer recommends massaging or not.
The time of day you take your testosterone shots could also make a difference, with some users saying they find it to be more effective if they take their shots in the morning. There really is no hard and fast rule as to when the best time is to take your testosterone shots. What is more important than when, is to pick a time — morning or night — that is best for you, and be consistent in taking your injections at that time to maximize results.
How Soon Will I See The First Benefits From Testosterone Injections?
Of course your individual results will vary, but generally speaking you can expect to see some positive benefits from testosterone injections within the first two to three weeks of your initial injections. The first sign that most men report of their testosterone injections working is a feeling of more energy, and less stress emotionally. That is soon followed by an improvement in sexual desire and sexual performance.
As your testosterone injection therapy continues you will start to notice changes such as: better moods and changes in body structure, in terms of less fat and more muscle. There will be internal changes also occurring, such as a drop in bad cholesterol, and a related decrease in the buildup of arterial plaque. If you were suffering from hypertension, or high blood pressure, that will probably return to more normal levels. All of which will lower your risk of cardiovascular disease. Your metabolism will increase, which will continue to help you burn fat and build muscle, which will further fight obesity, and lower your risk of developing Type II diabetes.
Over the course of the next several months, your benefits from testosterone injections will build one after another, until you are a stronger, fitter, younger, happier version of yourself.
