The next topic we’re going to discuss is the difference between TRT or testosterone replacement therapy and ED or erectile dysfunction medication and when to use each of them. TRT is not specially or even very good at allowing men to get improved erections unless their testosterone is very low to start with. This has been shown in numerous studies. That being said testosterone certainly plays a large role in a man’s libido and the desire to have sex and sudden loss of morning erections should be a red flag to look into possible testosterone deficiency.
There are some other red flags for testosterone deficiency which would include loss of body hair, loss of muscle mass, increase of fat mass, change in mood and these should all prompt a patient to speak with a physician about possible testosterone investigations. ED or erectile dysfunction medications really don’t play much of a role in libido itself but they play more a role in actually giving someone the quality of erections they need to have a satisfying sexual experience.
So to summarize, if someone is having poor quality erections, they’re probably looking more at erectile dysfunction medications but if someone’s having poor libido or loss of morning erections or other concerning things like that. Then they’re probably looking at more TRT medications.
