Just when I'm beginning to believe I have nothing more to say, as the last weeks' posts might attest, someone sends in a question. Whew! I'm glad for it. So, he asks about Testosterone replacement. Specifically if it would cause his nut sac to tighten, and his balls to shrink.
Testosterone (T) levels drop as we age - it's just one of those lovely things that happen to us. It's called Andropause; the male version of Menopause. It sucks! Our energy is lacking, our interest in sexual activity drops and, worst thing of all, our boners tend to be on the limp side. And, that, my Faithful Readers can suck - and not ever in a good way.
The solution is T Replacement Therapy. And our doctors are more than happy to write that prescription. They ensure us our energy levels will get the boost we need - and so will our boners. But, they never seem to inform us of the down side: Over time, our balls will shrink and shrivel.
While they slow production of T, they remain the same size - unless the T is being supplied elsewhere.
My Faithful Reader also notes that his sac is scrunched, pulling his nuts up close. Now, to my knowledge, this should not be happening with T replacement - there is something else going on there. So, this phenomenon calls for a follow-up appointment with the Doc. Our ballsacs only tighten and scrunch to raise the temperature of our balls - and oddly enough to protect them when we sense danger.
And loosen up to lower them back down when the temperature warms them up.
The shrinking size might be slowed by switching to a Compounded Bio-Identical Testosterone Cream. Insurance may not cover it, but if it covers the Big Pharma mass produced crap (which have a long list of side effects, including heart attack), it should cover Bio-Identical Cream. It may cost you a bit more out-of-pocket, but it's worth it. Because you are worth it.
