Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT) is a medically supervised treatment used to alleviate symptoms associated with low testosterone (T). Low T has shown to increase the risk of cardiovascular disease and death, and is associated with depression, decreased sex drive, fatigue, irritability, and decreased lean muscle mass. FDA approved treatment for low T includes topical gel, transdermal patch, buccal lozenge, and injection. TRT patients need to be monitored closely due to the increased risk of blood clots and stroke due to an increase in blood viscosity, in addition to raised liver enzymes. When this occurs during TRT, stopping TRT, lowering T dosage, or a prescribed therapeutic blood donation may be needed.

Unfortunately, many low T clinics will mandate that established TRT clients continue to make inconvenient weekly appointments for injections that can often be performed at home. Their lives then revolve around a once weekly in-clinic injection in perpetuity without regard to personal or travel obligations.

At the Y-Factor, we teach you to fish and self-administer TRT after completion of a brief one-month injection training program under the medical supervision of our team of experts. All our current TRT clients self-administer their injections after completing the program. Our medical protocols and easily accessible care assure your safety while on treatment. Convenient TRT at home or while traveling with less in-office appointments means a lower monthly cost for your TRT and not revolving your life around an in-clinic injection.

Break free from your weekly in-clinic injections now!
