If my testosterone is low, will I have to take the Testosterone Replacement Therapy forever? Medical studies conclude that it is safe and effective to stay on a TRT program for 20+ years. As long as a patient is monitored every 6-12 months and remains in a normal human testosterone range, there is no need to ‘cycle’ off of testosterone replacement. Should you decide to stop the program, your body will go back to producing those levels it produced prior to therapy (less the natural 1 to 3% testosterone degradation for each of those years and for each year to follow).
Secondly, I wouldn’t be concerned whether or not you’re shedding. Some people shed a little bit, and some people don’t — but shedding is definitely NOT always a good sign (as you know). Some shedding is normal because of the nature of the massages. However, some people also shed because they create too much friction on the scalp skin, or they don’t allow for enough recovery time in between sessions. That’s not the good type of shed. So, don’t worry about not shedding 🙂 Regrowth is possible with or without the type of shedding you’re looking for.
