How Do Testosterone Blood Clots Occur?
Also known as thrombosis, blood clots occur when blood cells accumulate in a vein, restricting the flow of blood through that particular vein. Clots can have severe health consequences, and can be life-threatening in some cases. Blood clots can develop in the superficial veins, which are closer to the skin, or in the deep veins, a condition known as deep vein thrombosis (DVT). If blood clots break free and travel to other parts of the body, they may cause sudden death or other serious medical complications such as pulmonary embolism (blood clot stuck in the lungs). Blood clots may be caused by:
- slowed blood flow
- vein trauma
- prolonged periods of sitting
- side effects of testosterone replacement therapy products

What is Testosterone Replacement Therapy?
As men age, they experience a natural decline in testosterone production.

Having low testosterone can result in a diminished sex drive, weaker bone density, and decreased muscle mass. TRT products are designed to treat these problems.

How Are Testosterone Blood Clots Treated?
Depending on the location of the clot and the patient’s overall health, testosterone blood clots may be treated in a number of different ways. If you are experiencing any of the symptoms listed above, and suspect you may have a blood clot, contact your doctor right away.
In recent years, there have been a number of revolutionary advances that have improved the treatment of blood clots. Current treatments include:
- Anticoagulants – Prescription drugs that prevent blood from clotting
- Clot busters – Medication that dissolves clots
- Catheter-directed thrombolysis – Surgery in which a catheter is implanted and directed toward the blood clot, where it delivers meds that dissolve it
- Thrombectomy – surgical removal of a blood clot
If you are diagnosed with a testosterone blood clot, your physician may refer you to a hematologist who specializes in the treatment of blood diseases. Patients with arterial disease who are at risk for developing clots in their arteries may have an entire medical team treating them, including a cardiologist (heart specialist) and possibly a hematologist.
