Friday’s post about steroids and testosterone generated quite a bit of interest. One reader chastised me for spreading misinformation about Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT).
You have made some uneducated statements regarding Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT), and join the club. There is so much mis-information out there, it really is amazing to listen to all the nonsense.
There was more, but those first two sentences are what I need to address.
I believe this reader misunderstood the post. The man in question was not only using (illegal) steroids, he’s allowed a fellow Iron Pumper in the gym he attends to convince him to undergo weekly injections of testosterone (T) outside of a controlled medical situation. And I stand by my statement(s) that this will eventually do him harm. Testosterone is a controlled substance for a reason, and we all know how easily [those] substances can be illegally gotten and abused. And what makes that worse is that illegally gotten drugs may not be as pure as one might be lead to believe.
TRT is not a bad thing. In fact, for some of us, it is necessary and I honestly thought I made that clear. I use a Bio-Identical cream myself. But, it is by prescription and under a doctor’s care. My T levels were extremely low, and I do mean extremely. I had no energy in the morning and by 10 o’clock my ass was dragging on the ground; in addition to the Muscular Dystrophy wreaking havoc I was steadily becoming weaker; my erections…well, what erections? I hadn’t had a decent boner in more than two years. I could manage to stroke a load out, but my cock wasn’t even close to raging hard – it was more like a half-cooked noodle. Morning wood? Fugeddaboutit!
The T replacement has certainly aided me in a positive way. I have increased energy levels, my muscular strength has (somewhat) returned, and I can get a decent hard-on again. And the morning wood is back and feels amazing again!
So, guys, just in case I wasn’t clearly transparent on the subject, let me clarify this… Using testosterone (hormone replacement) therapies, when necessary, at normal doses, by prescription, and under the care of a qualified medical professional will not harm you.
I hope [that] reader understands that, here at Big Whack Attack, I am all about getting the package in good working condition, keeping it healthy and hard, and enjoying it well into old age.
