When normal testosterone levels begin to fall due to hypogonadism, many couples suffer the ill side effects. That’s right, both partners suffer when low testosterone becomes a problem. Abnormally low testosterone levels can affect all aspects of a man’s life, and this will then affect his partner. When a man’s testosterone levels fall below normal, men begin to suffer from a low sex drive, erectile dysfunction, low sperm count, decrease in muscle mass, emotional problems, irritability, constant tiredness, or a combination of one or more symptoms. This is why it is incredibly important that a man takes his partner into consideration when deciding whether or not to begin testosterone replacement therapy in Glendale, AZ through Men’s Vitality Center.
When talking to your partner about testosterone replacement therapy options through Men’s Vitality Center in Glendale, here are a few answers to some of the most common questions:
- Testosterone replacement therapy does not cause a man to have “roid rage.” In fact, a man’s mood may stabilize during testosterone replacement therapy. Emotional issues and irritability are often side effects of low testosterone, so starting treatment will get these levels back to normal. Roid rage only occurs with misuse of testosterone.
- Your partner can absorb testosterone that is applied directly to skin. Gels and topical creams are absorbed through a man’s skin, so if your partner touches the skin in which gel or cream was just applied, it can transfer. This transfer can also affect children, so it is important to keep the skin well covered after application.
- Side effects are always a concern when it comes to prescription medications. Each man will react differently to testosterone replacement therapy. Make sure to talk to your physician about possible side effects, and contact Men’s Vitality Center if you notice any negative side effects.
While testosterone replacement therapy can help normalize testosterone levels, it is important to schedule regular appointments with your medical professional. All testosterone replacement therapy programs should be closely monitored. Contact Men’s Vitality Center in Glendale to have any questions answered about testosterone replacement therapy.
