1) Probably a few months or so when I noticed positive changes. Likely before then but that's when it kinda all clicked on my mind and I noticed things that were different lately.I have lots of questions on TRT and maybe this should be in a new thread later. If you don’t mind, I was curious…
1. How long did it take to feel results from the TRT?
2. What do you pay for something like this?
3. What are the downsides you’ve noticed on TRT?
2) Insurance covers it so basically a doctor's visit and then the monthly costs. T is relatively cheap, like under $50 a month, even without insurance I think, using something like GoodRx.
3) I have common side effects such as Polythecemia(aka, increase in red blood cells production) and I am a heavy aromatize meaning I need to take aromasin to keep my Estradiol levels in check.
For the Polythecemia, I donate blood every 8 weeks religiously to prevent any issues such as stroke, blood clots or heart attacks. If you have heard about these issues on TRT it's because people didn't pay attention to this part and never paid attention to their hematocrit levels and their blood became too thick and turned into sludge.
Donating blood regularly prevents this from happening and also has an added benefit of removing iron from the body, the only way men can do it.
Researchers now believe the difference in life expectancy between men and women is from women involuntarily donating blood for 40 or so years every month and removing iron from their body which causes oxidation.
