I hope you’re all well.
I am not on TRT but I’ve noticed that my voice changes depending on my testosterone and/or other androgen levels. On the days that I feel my best, and get very strong morning wood and wake up easily in the morning, whenever I speak, I feel strong chest resonance. I can feel my words vibrate in my chest when speaking. There is a deep bass reverberance.
When I don’t feel that I am optimal hormonally, my words only resonate in my nasal and throat area. I am not imagining this and have even recorded my voice at these different situations and there is a very audible difference. The best example I can give is how your voice sounds after a very strenuous workout or if you’ve inhaled dust. The voice loses the bassier vibration and sounds more nasally and lacks power.
I do know that testosterone has a significant role in laryngeal muscle strength and size. Lower levels of testosterone could cause a weakening and shrinking of these laryngeal muscles per chance. Also, higher testosterone usually means lower cortisol which could cause the vocal apparatus to be more relaxed.
There was another user on a different hormone optimization forum who also experiences this vocal change.
I can’t be the only one who has noticed a deeper and bassier voice.
Please do share your thoughts and experiences as personally for me this is a clear sign that my hormone levels are optimal.
UPDATE: Here’s an article which is on the T-Nation website regarding low testosterone and diminished laryngeal muscle strength and size. This article is actually from a TRT clinic website.
UPDATE: Please note a moderator previously added the word “daily” to my subject title. Quite unhelpful and it’s caused confusion here. I have changed this. So please note I am not saying anything about “DAILY CHANGES”.
