Where do the injections go and are they painful?

Usually the injection is administered in the glute area intramuscularly where your body will absorb the testosterone the best. The shoulder or thigh are another option. Most patients don’t find the injections painful.

Will TRT make my testicles shrink?

No. HCG will prevent testicular shrinkage while on TRT. We wouldn’t be on TRT too if that was the case. HCG (Human Chronic Gonadotropin) keeps your body producing its natural testosterone so when you are on therapy this will increase your total testosterone level. Some clinics don’t provide HCG with their therapy or they make you pay for it separately because it is expensive.

How quickly will I see results?

There is no definite answer. Typically, in the first month of therapy our patients start to notice a difference. Examples would be weight loss, better sleep, increased muscle definition, sharper concentration, increased libido, etc.

Do you take insurance?

We are in network with most insurance companies. Testosterone replacement therapy is covered by most insurance. We will confirm your coverage before therapy is started.

How much will TRT cost if I have insurance?

The cost depends on your insurance plan. Before you start your therapy, we will review the cost.

What if I don’t have insurance or my insurance company won’t cover TRT?

We do offer affordable self-pay options. If you have the symptoms of Low T, we will work with you on setting up a payment plan.

What if I live outside the Omaha area or I am too busy to visit the clinic every week for an injection?
