ERT Vs TRT: The Great HRT Double Standard


I started testosterone replacement therapy at age 31 after being diagnosed with secondary hypogonadism. Researching hormone replacement therapy (HRT) with testosterone was difficult because all of the info was for women or bodybuilders. So I decided to create a site for average guys looking into TRT.

    So did you get your hypogonadism under control.  How long did it take and what did you take exactly.  I have taken androgel and ……….you share first.

    Years ago I tried breathing from oxygen tank between sets for strength improvement.  Outcome, no improvement.  I tried creatine, no gain.  I tried suma and tribulus, no gain, I’m on chrysin now, no gain.  Yes, I’m not starving myself.  Possibly I haven’t used the right dosage or got bad brands.  HGH releaser made me dangerously hypertensive!  DHEA that used to have no apparent effect, made me half as hypertensive as the HGH releaser.  I’m on deer velvet antler sublingual, so far, no results in strength; same with colostrum.  I’m on 33 day trial with large dose colostrum 2x/day with botanicals, riboflavin & ubiquinol to see if varicose vein patch on leg improves.  I had dream 2 days ago in which it improved; real life exam comes in 19 days.  Modalities of interest include low level laser treatment (used on male area?) or on other tissue needing repair; hyperbaric oxygen; and TA-65.  Columbia University just announced regeneration of natural tooth “in vivo” so who knows what else will become possible only of course, for those with deep enough pockets.  The HRT double standard you cite isn’t something I’ve thought of till now, I am aware of double standards in other areas (bodily integrity and clothing) where males are under 100% discrimination.

    Al and Justin – Nope, not under control after about 5 months of trying to do things the natural way. I’m giving it a few more weeks but that’s it. No more. If my test results come back low again I’m going on HRT. It will suck to be “addicted” to a pharmaceutical drug that I have to pay for every month for the rest of my life, but oh well… it’s better than feeling down, lethargic, unable to remember things, unmotivated at work, not having a sex drive and friends telling me I look like I have cancer.

    Stay tuned for updates if/when I go on.

    In a year you should really considering juicing its damn near impossible unless you got super great genes to step on a stage in just year am not saying you cant do it but its going to be very tough Have you seen those teens in the NPC dude there monsters some guys like the pros you see now trained for 11 years before they step on a stage for there first show ever. I think you should give it a couple more years some of those guys been at it since they were 15 plus genetics play a big role in the bodybuilding game if you wanna step on a stage in a year but good luck bro.

    […] What I don’t like about Spectrum: There are a few things I wish were different. First and foremost it would be good if the TRT were covered by my health insurance. Secondly, anti-aging clinics and hormone replacement clinics are currently legal if they follow certain regulations, but there is no guarantee that they will be five years from now. If that happens I won’t relish the task of taking my treatment and history elsewhere, but we’ll cross that bridge IF we get to it. The funny thing is nobody seems to have a problem with estrogen replacement or plastic surgery clinics. You all know my views on that double standard. […]
