There is a lot of loud noise out there about TRT. And yes, a lot of studies is coming out, but none that can bring finality to an ongoing tug-of-war between opposing parties.

The bottom line is, a man without testosterone is not a man. You might be fine with it, I am not! I want to be a man and all that a man stands for! Strong, muscular, warrior, family protector, leader and a virile husband.

So whatever science throws at us, this is the absolute line in the sand…do you want to be a man or are we happy to live with more estrogen in your blood than a woman and all the feminine consequences?

 

Now, let’s look at some of the main tug-of-war TRT opinions out there vs. the real facts:

  1. TRT use in men will lead to package shrinking.

THE TRUTH: TRT use will eventually result in total shutdown of your own testosterone factories (testis). This will slowly result in testicular shrinkage and if left untreated will eventually be irreversal. IT DOES NOT AFFECT THE PENIS SIZE!

The problem with the current prescribed TRT treatments (even by highly knowledgable doctors/Urologists) are the fact that they do not even consider the simultaneous use of HCG with the TRT treatment. I struggle to comprehend the logic they apply. HCG is the key component to ensure that the testis, while on TRT, does not shut-down while keeping its size and functionality. Unfortunately, HCG does not yet form part of the medical community’s concept of TRT treatment. Very shortsighted. However, I am confident this will change in future and HCG and TRT will be part of the same treatment program (far future).

To keep testis functional in a TRT environment, one typically uses 250iu to 500iu HCG every 2ndday. Will it keep testis in original size? Sadly no, it will probably let you keep 80% of size which is very acceptable for most guys. HCG is considered a very safe product by most measures, but it should only be used under doctor supervision, similar to TRT. But, since the medical community has not yet reached this insight for combo TRT+HCG treatment, most guys are left to their own devices and turn to the black-market to obtain HCG. You might find a progressive thinking doctor or Urologist out there that will give you this combo treatment prescription, but sadly most won’t because for the medical community the light is yet to go on.

  1. TRT use in men under the age of 45 can cause infertility.

Even CNBC recently discussed this in a news item.

THE TRUTH: TRT treatment in men cause the sperm production to stop completely. There have even been studies on the possibility to use TRT (or similar regimen’s) as a male contraceptive. Sadly, these studies never really produced viable solutions.

Any male, no matter their age, when using TRT or any other form of testosterone replacement will be infertile for as long as he is using the testosterone. However, if this is short term and the usage is stopped, fertility returns as soon as the testis reached it’s normal full production again. But when TRT is used for extended periods (without HCG!) then the testis will eventually reach a point of no return from where it cannot recover again to normality. Again, this is due to the short-sightedness of the medical community, who is yet to realize the importance of HCG while on any form of TRT treatment.

  1. TRT is juicing.

THE TRUTH: With respect, anyone mentioning these words have NO IDEA what he or she is talking about. Low testosterone levels has been classified as a serious medical condition for men which results in deep depressive states, low energy, overweight, low muscle size, bone density problems and even potential heart problems and not to even mention the sexual related problems. Juicing is abusing (use more than intended) testosterone for the sole purpose to add muscle. TRT under doctor supervision is treating a serious medical condition!

  1. TRT is expensive

THE TRUTH: This is what your doctor will tell you. According to him it will be in excess to $200 US per treatment (more than R2000 South African Rand). Although he won’t be lying, it is not true either. He is referring to Nebido. It is a 4ml vial of a specific testosterone blend which is injected once every 6-10 weeks and it is expensive (!). Ever heard of this conspiracy theory that doctors only prescribe the most expensive meds because they get kickback? Well I do not believe in conspiracy theories but this makes one wonder because most doctors will suggest that as first choice and not even mention other much better and cheaper choices. Testo Depot is readily available from pharmacies and is a 10ml solution which lasts you 10 weeks (100ml per week) and costs about $50 US (R800 in South African Rand). It is actually much more effective than Nebido (on various levels) and the weekly injection keeps your levels much more stable. It is also the preferred choice as prescription for guys struggling with ED due to low test levels. Then off course there are black market products like Ciccone Pharma Test E (Testosterone Enanthate which is similar to Testo Depot) which will cost you $35 US (R275) for a 10ml vial which lasts more than 20 weeks due to a higher concentration at 250mg per 1 ml. Off course black market products are not regulated and as such ALWAYS carries a risk. How big a risk? Well, most guys are prepared to take the risk and very, very few regret it. But it is not without risk. To stay safe, I suggest you stick to the well-known big black market brands. Steer completely clear from the small new brands. That could have been made and packaged in someone’s backyard! So, when a doctor tells you it is expensive, educate him about the options and also educate him about the need for HCG. You might just be lucky and have a progressive thinking doctor that actually listens. But on this point, NEVER visit your house doctor and think he will be knowledgeable. He knows squat about this. You’re not gonna get any happiness from him. The only people who have knowledge are the doctors that specializes in treating athletes and sportsmen and then off course Urologists. (For guys in South Africa I do have a local trustworthy black market supplier link on request. I got one international link for guys outside South Africa which is quite trustworthy. I am not affiliated with any of these people, so always venture with caution! Email me if you are interested. gertlouwljc@hotmail.com)

  1. TRT can be replaced by a natural approach.

THE TRUTH: Many factors play a part here. For some a natural approach will and can produce results but for some it will not be enough to rectify the problem. For such people TRT is the only answer. The only way to know is to get a series of regular bloodwork done to monitor blood testosterone levels. Obviously natural healthy approaches must always be exhausted before one ventured the route of a medical solution. To this effect I have written an article discussing the steps one can take for a natural solution. Note, this article discuss steps supported by science and NOT hollow fake advertisements about “wonder pills”. Here is the link to the article: https://gertlouw.com/2018/12/04/over-40-counteracting-declining-testosterone-levels/

 

Some recent TRT studies claimed potential heart problems as a result of TRT use. However, these studies used TRT quantities way above what is used in a normal TRT environment. So, these claims and results is more in-line with actual steroid use!

Some previous studies which were done on TRT weekly dosages not exceeding 125mg actually showed the opposite, that TRT is good for the heart. Up to 125mg of testosterone (weekly) is considered the safe use of TRT. More than that and it can raise the Haemoglobin levels (and Hematocrit) of the blood which can lead to other problems over the long term – blood clots and hardened arteries.

What we must remember is that testosterone is as healthy for the male body as water. Too much water can even kill you. It is all about balance. Using water in the correct quantities for your body is very healthy, so is testosterone. Exceeding those quantities and you ask for very serious problems.

In the deepest south of South Africa you will find me. Dwelling in the most beautiful city in the world, Cape Town. I live close to God and try to follow in the footsteps of Christ as led the Holy Spirit. I am a fitness freak right now…but struggle with the cardio – my body just not built for much cardio! The weights I LOVE throwing around! The battle against the weights and intense strength required, is really my cup of tea! I am one of those LOUD guys in gym while training, that’s why I train when as little as possible people around…lol! Starting now with my building phase (3 months) and me and my training partner is really pushing each other to new heights. He is more cardio orientated than me so he is currently KILLING ME! SO 6-PACK, I AM WAITING…SHOW ME HOW DEEP YOUR CUTS CAN GO! Other passions include Karate and Judo and wrestling (and off course surfing for many years). Karate I did for many years, Judo 4 yrs and for a short period kickboxing until I was knocked silly one time with blood all over and teeth protruding through my lip, but if I have to choose over, I would choose wrestling…simply because of the brutal power against power game with your opponent. Love it. Love my home theatre hobby, making youtube videos and spending time with family! Can’t wait for 4K projectors to hit mainstream! For those interested, this blog is my database of all my fitness and transformation knowledge. And NO (!) I am not getting any money for it, not selling anything on it and neither do I promote anything on it or getting sponsored by anybody. My blog is simply where I want to help other guys living a healthier life and become the best they can be, inside and out and ultimately it is my legacy I want to leave my one and only son – now 7 y/o and already eager to get his 6-pack! I started my healthy living after a very close call with death at age 40 and since then fighting against severe kidney and liver damage. Don’t like talking about it, but this is now 10 years after I was given 2 years to live. After much hardship one of my main aims now is to assist other guys with healthy living and transforming themselves inside and out. I don’t know how much grace will still be given me, but I live now every moment to be the best I can be. To be the best bodybuilder I can be, the best father, best husband and best friend to those whom my paths crosses. I want to live a life worth living and not just do what excites me or pleases me. Living with grace everyday, death becomes a closer reality. This is how I view it: ~DEATH~ A sick man turned to his doctor as he was preparing to Leave the examination room and said, ‘Doctor, I am afraid to die. Tell me what lies on the other side..’ Very quietly, the doctor said, ‘I don’t know..’ ‘You don’t know? You’re, a Christian man, and don’t know what’s on the other side?’ The doctor was holding the handle of the door; On the other side came a sound of scratching and whining, And as he opened the door, a dog sprang into the room And leaped on him with an eager show of gladness. Turning to the patient, the doctor said, ‘Did you notice my dog? He’s never been in this room before. He didn’t know what was inside.. He knew nothing except that his master was here, And when the door opened, he sprang in without fear. I know little of what is on the other side of death, But I do know one thing… I know my Master is there and that is enough.’ Feel free to contact me directly if you wish. Reading this far, the last bit important info on me you need to know, is that my anchor in life is Jesus Christ. Please bear in mind, English is my 2nd language and as a result their might be spelling, grammatical and other language errors in my blog – I do apologise for this! Wish you all many blessings.
