As men age, their testosterone levels naturally decline, leading to decreased libido, erectile dysfunction, and other sexual problems. Testosterone therapy is a treatment that aims to increase testosterone levels and improve sexual wellness.

What is Testosterone Therapy?

Testosterone therapy is a treatment that involves the administration of testosterone to men who have low levels of this hormone. Testosterone is a hormone responsible for developing male characteristics, such as:

  • Muscle mass
  • Bone density
  • Body hair

It also plays a crucial role in sexual function, mood, and energy levels. Testosterone therapy works by increasing the levels of testosterone in your body. This can be done through various methods, such as injections, patches, gels, or pellets. The method of administration will depend on your preferences and your doctor's recommendations.

Types of Testosterone Therapy


Testosterone injections are the most common form of testosterone therapy. Depending on the dose, they are usually administered in the muscle every two to four weeks. Injections are typically given in a doctor's office, but some patients may learn to self-administer the injections at home. Testosterone injections can be delivered in different forms, such as cypionate or enanthate.


Testosterone patches are another option for testosterone therapy. They are applied to the skin daily and replaced every 24 hours. Patches can be placed on different body areas, such as the abdomen, upper arm, or thigh. However, some people may experience skin irritation or allergic reactions to the adhesive.


Testosterone gels are applied to the skin daily, usually on the shoulders or upper arms. They are absorbed through the skin and into the bloodstream. Gels are a convenient option for those who prefer not to receive injections, but they can be expensive and may transfer to others through skin-to-skin contact.


Testosterone pellets are small, rice-sized pellets inserted under the skin every three to six months. The pellets slowly release testosterone into the bloodstream over time. Pellets are a low-maintenance option, but they require a minor surgical procedure for insertion.
