Living with Low T: Testosterone Replacement Therapy Solutions

Living with low testosterone can be challenging and take a toll on many aspects of your life. It can lower your sex drive, cause you to feel tired during the day and at work, cause erectile dysfunction, and even lead to weight gain. Luckily, there are several effective treatment options available.

In this article, you’ll learn about the different types of TRT solutions and what’s involved with taking them.

Bioidentical TRT Solutions vs. Synthetic TRT

Before explaining the specific types of TRT treatment, it’s important to point out there are two different forms of TRT – bioidentical and synthetic. 

Bioidentical TRT utilizes hormones that are identical to the ones naturally produced by your body. Since these hormones come from natural sources, they essentially mimic your body’s own testosterone. Treatments that have bioidentical hormones are considered to be safer, have fewer side effects, and be more effective than synthetic treatments. 

Synthetic TRT involves the use of artificial hormones, which do not replicate your body’s natural testosterone. This can lead to increased side effects, including the possibility of creating a hormonal imbalance within the body. 

What are the Different Testosterone Replacement Therapy Options Available?

There are many TRT treatments available, but some are better than others. The exact treatment you receive will depend on the clinic you visit (whether or not they use bioidentical treatments or synthetic), as well as your current health and specific needs.

Testosterone Cypionate

Testosterone cypionate is a powerful solution for increasing testosterone levels. Administered as an injection, many people experience the benefits between three and six weeks after the first injection. Treatment typically lasts for several months, with injections being given every one to two weeks. Testosterone cypionate can also be used as a cream.

Pellet Therapy

Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT), also known as Pellet Therapy, can increase testosterone levels using dissolvable pellets that are implanted beneath the skin. These pellets gradually release testosterone over 3 to 4 months, ensuring a consistent supply without the need for weekly injections.


Clomid (clomiphene citrate) stimulates testosterone production by blocking estrogen receptors in the brain. Taken in pill form, it might increase the luteinizing hormone (LH) and follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH), allowing for the testes to produce more testosterone.

Grapeseed Oil

Grapeseed oil, rich in antioxidants, potentially improves overall health and alleviates low testosterone symptoms. It could enhance treatment when combined with other testosterone therapies.

How Frequently Will I Need to Receive TRT Treatment?

How often you will need to receive your testosterone replacement therapy treatment will depend on your health and the exact treatment being administered.

  • Testosterone Cypionate: Typically administered every 1 to 2 weeks
  • Pellet Therapy: Every 3 to 4 months (pellets naturally dissolve after this time)
  • Grapeseed Oil: Can be combined with other therapies for as long as needed
  • Clomid: Taken orally, the frequency will vary
  • Nasal Gels: The exact frequency will vary

Testosterone replacement treatment can be long-lasting. During your consultation, your medical provider will share additional information on what to expect with treatment and how long you should expect to experience the benefits.

Lifestyle Changes and TRT

In addition to the above-mentioned treatments, your medical provider might also suggest incorporating specific lifestyle changes into your day, to enhance the benefits of treatment. This can include:
  • Getting regular exercise
  • Eating a balanced diet
  • Reducing stress
  • Getting enough sleep
  • Reducing or eliminating alcohol intake
  • Reducing or eliminating smoking
  • Attending follow-up appointments to monitor progress (or receive treatment if in-person visits are needed)
