    My Own Way

    Hello guys, Last year I was measured low testosterone. 7.97nmol/l, while norm is 7.96-27.3nmol/l. So no treatment. Now I decided go on my own, because I have nothing to loose. Do you have any experiences treating yourself? Thanks for an answer -id271

    I'm on testosterone (doctor prescribed)

    and I'm worried about long term effects. I'm in withdrawal right now because my insurance changed so I'm trying to get everything set up. I have to say, being on it is better than being off of it. Anyone else worried, though?

    Low T

    Hello, i am 29 and one year ago was diagnosed with low t. I had been struggling with the symptoms for five years, but never went to the doctor because I thought it was maybe due to how much I worked, and I was too stubborn to go to a doctor. My life progressively got much worse...

    Surprised To Find Out I Have Low T

    On a whim, I asked my Primary Care Doc to check my T levels during routine bloodwork. I was very surprised when results came back in the low 200's! I'm 32, and I've been feeling the symptoms of low-t for a few years now. Lately I've been feeling lethargic and apathetic. Before...

    Low T

    When I found out I had low T the symptoms all made sense, I did my research and found the shot was best I had one and get another in a few days, some small differences so far though nothing too good to brag about, waiting patiently.
