Myth: Age Related Low Testosterone Is Natural, So You Just Have to Accept It
It’s true that men lose testosterone as they age. It’s not true that it’s a natural life stage you have to accept.
Having low T has significant, serious effects on your health and wellbeing, including:
- Loss of muscle mass.
- Increased body fat.
- Impaired cognitive function and memory.
- Loss of libido.
- Irritability, mood swings and depression.
- Loss of bone density.
- Smaller, softer penis and testicles.
- Hair loss.
- Erectile dysfunction.
There’s no reason you have to live with any of this. These conditions can have serious, long-term effects on your health.
Natural approaches like diet, exercise, stress management and nutritional supplementation can help slow the loss of testosterone, but they can’t fully replace your lost T. To do that, you need a safe, medically supervised replacement therapy that addresses all the aspects of your low T. With your doctor’s help, you could reverse many signs of low T and aging in just a few weeks or months.

Myth: Testosterone Therapy Will Give Me Man Boobs
You may have heard that getting testosterone treatments will cause you to develop gynecomastia, which is the medical term for male breasts. This only happens if you try to administer hormones without a doctor’s supervision. It’s common among long-term steroids abusers.
An imbalance between T levels and estrogen levels leads to this condition. Men who take testosterone supplements without checking their estrogen levels can make the imbalance worse. Under these conditions, testosterone transforms into estrogen.
If you’re getting TRT, your doctor will monitor hormone levels. You won’t have to worry about developing male breast tissue.

Myth: Only Older Men Experience Low T
This is one of the biggest (and worst) myths about low testosterone.
According to the Mayo Clinic, “Testosterone levels peak during adolescence and early adulthood. As you age, your testosterone level gradually declines about 1% a year after age 30 or 40.”
If you’re over the age of 30, your body has already started losing testosterone levels. If you have a chronic illness or certain congenital conditions, you may have lost even more testosterone than is normal for your age.
Have you ever abused alcohol or drugs? Have you tried fixing your low T with improper steroid use? If you’ve had bad lifestyle habits in the past, they might be catching up with you. All those activities can cause your testosterone levels to drop.
Fortunately, safe testosterone therapy can restore your youthful testosterone levels.

Myth: Testosterone Replacement Therapy Causes Prostrate Cancer
In the 1950s, doctors began issuing warnings about a link between prostrate cancer and treatments for low T. They based this warning on clinical findings that men with prostrate cancer had higher numbers of cancerous tumors after increasing their T levels. Since then, some doctors have been hesitant to prescribe treatment to men at risk for prostrate cancer.
In later years, research has debunked that idea. “There has been widespread belief that replacement therapy will promote disease progression in prostate cancer patients,” one study concluded. “Despite these fears, there are a growing number of studies showing no increase in prostate cancer incidence among men on testosterone replacement therapy.”
In 2016, a systemic review of the research concluded that, “Prostate cancer appears to be unrelated to endogenous testosterone levels. Replacement therapy for symptomatic hypogonadism does not appear to increase PSA levels nor the risk of prostate cancer development.”
Myth: Testosterone Therapy Will Make Me Angry or Aggressive
Testosterone has a bad reputation as the hormone that causes aggressive, overly “masculine” behavior. People have blamed testosterone for everything from road rage to the 2008 financial crash.
The first misconception is that it’s strictly a male hormone. Testosterone is an important hormone for men, but it’s also important for women. Women who lose too much testosterone can suffer their own symptoms.
The second misconception is that it causes men to behave badly. The truth is the exact opposite. Having low T can cause you to feel irritable and moody. Men with low T frequently experience mood swings and depression. Restoring your T levels will restore your positive outlook.
Myth: It’s Easy to Fix Low T Without Testosterone Therapy
If you’ve tried to fix your low T levels with supplements, natural methods or exercise, you already know this isn’t true. Healthy habits like a good diet and regular exercise will help you maintain your T levels, but they won’t typically help to replace the hormones that you have already lost. Though possible, for most, a safe TRT program offers the only really easy and accessible way for addressing your low T levels..
