Testosterone Patches

Testosterone patches are available via medical prescription, and are designed to help men recover from low testosterone levels (a male hormone that is necessary for the optimal health).

Younger and younger men are learning their symptoms aren't just from too much studying or too much partying.

When men have a low amount of testosterone they can experience the following symptoms:

  • Tiredness - Fatigue
  • Depression
  • Impotence
  • Loss of interest in sex
  • Hair loss
  • Problems with the male sexual and reproductive organs functioning properly

Prescribed by a physician, the testosterone patch works by passing a constant and steady dose of testosterone into the body via the skin. Since testosterone patches deliver an active male hormone transdermally, their use must be monitored carefully since there are some short term and long term side effects that must be considered.

Testosterone Patch Use

Testosterone patches are easy to use and to apply. The patches can be applied to different areas of the body depending on what type of patch they are. A testoderm patch is applied each day to the skin on the scrotum. This is because the skin on the scrotum is thin which allows for the easy transfer of testosterone into the body. These types of testosterone patches are worn at least 22 hours of each day, and the dose can be continued for no more than eight weeks.

Another type of testosterone patch is the androderm patch. These testosterone patches can be applied to different areas of the body, such as the thighs, back, arms, and stomach. Patches are left on for a full 24 hours before being replaced with a new one. The area of the body where these testosterone patches are applied should be alternated at least once every seven days to avoid skin irritation. The dose of testosterone from the testosterone patches can be continued for up to eight weeks.

When applying any testosterone patch, itís important to shave the skin, wash it well, and keep it dry when applying. As soon as there is any skin irritation, or other side effects, a doctor should be consulted before continuing treatment.
