Over 15 years ago I started getting depressed, losing muscle, gaining fat, getting injured easier, losing my sex drive and losing motivation at work. In short, my life was falling down around me so I went to see a doctor. The general family doctor was convinced it was depression and wanted to put me on antidepressants. Having never been the depressed type, I was convinced otherwise. I researched my symptoms online and discovered that they all matched that of low testosterone. I went back to the doctor for tests and indeed my testosterone levels were that of a 65 year old man. I was 31 at the time. I am 46 now.

He referred me to an endocrinologist who ran more tests and decided to put me on testosterone replacement therapy (TRT). That was over 15 years ago, and I’d like to share some of what I’ve learned during that time.

I am not a doctor and have no medical training. Do not take any of this as medical advice. Always speak to a doctor before making important decisions about your health.

Despite not being a doctor, I do have a lot of personal experiences to share. I hope they can help you along the way in your own TRT journey.
