Again, a great question for your doctor!! Discuss this with them. One very good option is always simply not to do it. You are the best one to weigh the pros and cons that your doctor lays out for you and decide what is the right decision for you. One thing that people often fail to realize is that the normal range for testosterone is that – a NORMAL RANGE. That means that readings anywhere in that range are NORMAL. If you are on the “low side of normal” – that is NORMAL. Another thing to realize is that doctors to not treat test results, they treat symptoms. Just because your testosterone comes in at 200 does not necessarily mean you need TRT! See also the below question.
