If the high cost of medication wasn’t bad enough, blood work and doctor’s visits is where it really starts to pain the wallet. Most offices offer some type of cash discount and in my case it was $65 per visit. You’ll need to obtain at least one blood test for low Testosterone which can set you back roughly $ per test. At some point you’ll need to test your estrogen levels which generally runs $280 + per test. Keep in mind most doctors will want these tests done bi-weekly/monthly when you first start and every 6 months after your T levels have stabilized. (I can’t help but laugh at this statement actually, I’m not sure it ever fully stabilizes)
Many men are skeptical of testosterone supplementation and their ability to provide effective results. Some men wonder what testosterone supplements do. They are leery of spending their money on products that claim to work, yet fail to deliver. Fortunately, most natural testosterone supplements do, in fact, work. One thing that man men that opt for supplements over prescription testosterone especially appreciate is the fact that supplements work without the necessity to deal with potentially harmful side effects. It is important to choose the right supplement in order to achieve the desired benefits.
