Many self-proclaimed defenders of masculinity support and advertise the import of testosterone in the form of TRT (Testosterone Replacement Therapy). They say that you can’t be natural in this world and therefore shouldn’t try.
Just pin, bro and enjoy the magical benefits that TRT has to offer. Once the right amount of test is swimming through your veins, the peaks of the world will be yours. Your previous weakness will embrace the obscurity of the night, and you will mutate from a male envelope into a real man. Some compare this metamorphosis to a second birth.
I wish becoming a manly deity was merely as simple as injecting.
Today, I present you 5 reasons not to choose the TRT route. Because we all know that every story has more than one version.
1. The euphoria from TRT is temporary
According to the manosphere, TRT turns you into the man you were supposed to be. Once the extra test molecules join the ship, your whole life becomes different. Women can smell your manliness from a distance and make it their life mission to be with you.
They can sense that you are in the process of transforming into a real alpha. This renders them more than willing to send you nudes while their beta boyfriends are cleaning the car right after vacuuming the apartment. They want you and nobody else because you are the commander. The leader. They yearn to donate your ultra-masculine genes to a new generation.
[This isn’t a joke. I have read reports on forums suggesting a similar effect.]
The benefits, however, do not stop here. Besides the endless attention from women, you will also enjoy career upgrades unthinkable before. Your confidence will appeal to your boss so much that he will raise your salary and give you a better position adequately suiting the new and improved you.
As a bonus, you will feel ecstatic and sensational every day. You will have more energy and a killer mindset. Nothing will be able to stop you. You will be a straight up monster.
How about no?
Do you really believe that all men on TRT experience nirvana? Is TRT powerful enough to negate all other laws in effect? Can muscle and confidence fix everything? Absolutely no.
More importantly, the novelty effect wears off. Eventually, your thriving process plateaus and you return to the baseline.
If you think that men with optimal testosterone levels feel great the whole time, you would be wrong. They experience down periods and depression too. They are still subject to the side effects of life. The feeling of awesomeness caused by TRT goes away sooner than you think.
What are you supposed to do then? Inject more?
2. The establishment promotes TRT
Isn’t it ironic that the promoters of TRT often criticize the system and present themselves as opposers to anti-male teachings like the modern septic feminism and yet fail to realize that TRT is actually a part of the mainstream brochure?
Ultimately, TRT is a business selling a product. There is an incentive to give a low T diagnose. If TRT was the hidden solution to the war against men, why is it promoted so heavily by the establishment? I thought they hated us. Are you telling me that now they want to help us?
What if TRT is a reverse psychology weapon supporting the current order?
What if they are teaching you how to become a “real man” while actually making you less of a man?
First, they oppress you and then give you injections so that you can feel like a man again.
Doesn’t this sound fairly similar to the tactic known as problem-reaction solution?
3. Quitting is almost impossible. You are dependent. An addict.
Technically, TRT does not require a lot of time and effort. Some people say that injecting is annoying but so are many other tasks that we have to do for the rest of our lives.
However, the injections do not form the burden of the process. The real pain comes from the dependence that TRT introduces in your life.
Quitting isn’t easy. Some say that you can stop taking external testosterone and recover fairly quickly, but that would be incorrect. Besides, what are you recovering to? At best, you will reach your previous test levels which are supposed to be low to begin with, right?
The actual “practical” reality is that most TRT addicts never quit completely. The dark times that arise after you stop injecting are difficult to overcome. Your body is no longer producing testosterone. Hence you feel lethargic. You are no longer the bad boy slayer from before. Can your psyche handle this detransformation into a loser?
In the end, the TRT machos become users who need a drug to get high. You know what those people are called? Junkies.
4. Hair loss, Infertility
Having hair on your head is more important than muscle mass when it comes to attracting women. A bald skull hurts your looks more than a smaller biceps does.
Sure, there are hairless men who are handsome and can pull off the shaved head look, but they are attractive despite their lack of hair rather than thanks to it. If balding was part of the pretty man repertoire, there wouldn’t be so many products claiming to reverse it.
Will TRT hurt your hair? It depends on your genetics. Ronnie Coleman took TRTx1000 and had a full head of hair. The metrosexual aesthetic posers are blasting trenbolone and many of them still have hair. Ultimately, it comes down to genetics. One thing is certain, though – steroids accelerate balding.
Another problem with TRT is its negative effect on fertility. There have been studies using testosterone as a male contraceptive. The results were fairly impressive.
Why does that happen? External import of testosterone hurts spermatogenesis. Many users try to combat this side effect by taking drugs like HCG.
Are there any guarantees? No. The results depend on the situation and your cards. There are gym rats who cannot get anyone pregnant while pro bodybuilders like Ronnie Coleman have a kindergarten at home.
5. You are not doing it for health, technically.
Many megaphones claim that the purpose of TRT is to improve your health, but that’s the equivalent of saying that anti-depressants make you sane. Those pills and injections do not address the root of the problem. They just soften the blow. As a result, they cannot be a longterm solution. Or maybe you think that we should put every new generation on a higher TRT dose because “you just can’t have optimal test today”?
The primary reason to go on TRT is not to have optimal testosterone levels. It’s about the high and the muscle mass. If TRT didn’t come with muscle gains, it would be far less appealing to the crowd.
I speak from experience. For me, the only motivation to inject would be to get swole. Without the muscle gains and the admiration that they produce, the motivation to give so much to merely have more energy is basically invisible. I am certain that many of you share the same view.
