Naturally producing testosterone.

Apr 21, 2012

Will your body naturally begin producing testosterone once you stop taking testim testosterone?

Response from Mr. Vergel

Depends on:

1- What your testosterone was before you started Testim 2- How long you were on Testim 3- Other health factors

Usually, it takes a few weeks (over 2 months) to go back to baseline numbers. You may feel tired, asexual, and low in motivation while you are going through the adjustment. Your hormonal axis will try to balance out but remember that if you had low testosterone to start with, you will return to having low testosterone and have all symptoms of hypogonadism (testosterone deficiency).

Why are you stopping Testim?
