Testosterone injections for Men and Women: Besides being important for good health in men and women, in men particularly it is responsible for the secondary sexual characteristics like the growth of body hair, deepening of voice and increased muscle and bone mass. For women Testosterone plays a different but important role, which we will discuss throughout this web site. Although testosterone is present in both men and women, men secrete about ten times as much testosterone as women. While testosterone levels vary from person to person, it is known to decline gradually with age, especially in men. In such cases, some people resort to testosterone replacement therapy in the form of testosterone injections among other methods such as gels, creams, pellets.

Medically, testosterone injections are used mostly by men and boys to correct the conditions caused because of lower levels of this hormone in their body. It treats conditions like hormonal imbalances, impotence and delayed puberty in boys. It is also often times used to treat breast cancer in women, though this is controversial and many doctors argue over the risks.

Testosterone injections are normally given at low doses as long as needed, with the idea of lifting testosterone blood test results to a certain optimal range or zone. The duration of the injection therapy depends on what is being treated or desired as the result. To keep the testosterone levels steady, the medication is usually prescribed once or twice weekly. These injections can be administered to nearly any muscle on the body, see charts for recommended injection sites. From the muscles, it quickly enters the bloodstream.

Testosterone injections should never be administered by someone who does not have sufficient experience and knowledge about steroids or how to inject. Its important that the testosterone levels in the body are monitored by a health care provider on a regular basis. Testosterone injections may have serious side effects if not administered and monitored correctly.

Testosterone injections increase the synthesis of proteins in muscles which in turn allows the muscle fiber to grow and repair faster than in an average man. Athletes use it to improve performance because it enhances muscle development, strength and endurance. Although in most sports, taking a testosterone shot is considered to be a form of doping and likely very illegal. We do not provide treatment for professional athletes looking for doping.

Testosterone injections are now being popularly used to bulk up or simply to improve the physique and look of the body in men through the strategy of getting very lean and cut. Today the world of body building, as we know, is devoid of steroids and testosterone injections. Body builders resort to it as an easier and quicker way to beef up and unfairly beat their competition.

 

Symptoms of steroid abuse and wrong implementation include swelling and rapid gain in body weight. Other symptoms may be an increased and ongoing erection of the penis, there might be pain in bones, feeling of increased thirst, loss of appetite, stomach pain, nausea and vomiting. In some cases there is twitching of muscles, and memory problems besides weakness.

Testosterone injections are related to some other adverse effects or dangers too. It aggravates sleep apnea, which is a sleep disorder in which the person stops breathing intermittently during the night. It causes increase in RBC count which in turn can lead to a heart attack. Adult men receiving these injections might have enlarged breasts and in some men, the testicles might stop producing sperms leading to infertility.

In woman, an overdose of testosterone can cause irreversible changes. They might develop male characteristics like facial and body hair. Others have reported changes in menstrual periods and sometimes even baldness. As earlier stated therefore, testosterone injections should be administered with care and under the guidance of a medical expert.
