Better Sex: Understanding Your Options for Testosterone Replacement Therapy Listen To This Episode on Apple Podcasts

In this episode we continue our discussion about testosterone replacement therapy. In a previous episode, we spoke to Dr. Amy Pearlman about how men can determine whether testosterone therapy may be right for them. But what do you do after you decide that you want to proceed with testosterone therapy? What type of testosterone treatment should you try: shots, creams, pellets, or even pills? What are the risks and benefits of each? How are the different treatment options administered? And what do you need to monitor and watch out for when receiving testosterone replacement? In order to help us answer these questions, we are fortunate to be joined by an expert in testosterone supplementation.
