Since there are so many asking TRT related questions, I figured I would start a thread on where to find good information. Here are my favorite sites:

FB: Testosterone Replacement Therapy Discussion
Web: ExcelMale dot com
Web: PeakTestosterone dot com

TRT: A Recipe for Success

And another decent general guide:

Complete guide to t-replacement

From the ExcelMale dot com website:
TRT Effects
-Effects on sexual interest appear after 3 weeks plateauing at 6 weeks, no further increments beyond.
-Changes in erections/ejaculations may require up to 6 months.
-Effects on quality of life manifest within 3-4 weeks, but maximum benefits take longer.
-Effects on depressive mood appear after 3-6 weeks with a maximum after 18-30 weeks.
-First effects on erythropoiesis (increased red blood cells) after 3 months, peaking at 9-12 months.
-Prostate specific antigen and volume rise, marginally, plateauing at 12 months; further increase related to aging rather than therapy.
-Effects on lipids appear after 4 weeks, maximal after 6-12 months.
-Insulin sensitivity may improve within few days, but effects on glycemic control become evident only after 3-12 months.
-Changes in fat mass, lean body mass and muscle strength occur within 12-16 weeks, stabilize at 6-12 months, but marginally continue to improve over years.
-Effects on inflammation occur within 3 to 12 weeks.
-Effects on bone detectable after 6 months but continue at least for 3 years.

High hematocrit levels, a common side effect of TRT or AAS use, can be controlled by blood donation. Too frequent blood donation results in iron deficiency. Here is a chart with recommended iron levels:

Endocrine charts that show conversion from one hormone to another. Each hormone is like a “bucket” that must be filled in order to create the next. TRT is more than just testosterone.

PSA Increase with TRT:
PSA rise with TRT usually happens quickly at first and then levels out with time. Dr Abraham Morgentaler has researched this for 30 years and has a graph showing this phenomenon:


I hate it when doctors jump to conclusions on PSA. In fact, a biopsy should ONLY be done as a LAST resort. There are MRI and ultrasound methods that could be used to look at the prostate. A biopsy is very damaging and can result in sexual disfunction, urinary issues plus it’s very invasive.

Yes, biopsy of the prostate should be reserved for absolute confirmation when all other modalities have proven correct or high suspicion ie genetic predisposition is prominent, lesion present. It has shown to actually initiate productivity and spread of cancer cells.
