I Have Very Low Testosterone

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 80 People

    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?

    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

    Surprised To Find Out I Have Low T

    Well, I was diagnosed with Low T almost 2 years

    ago. My doctor prescribed two different creams, but my skin didn't absorb it for some reason, so they didn't work. Then he put me on clomiphene, and after just a few days, I noticed a tremendous boost of energy. I was more alert, my sex drive went up, and I was lifting much...

    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.
