    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

    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...

    A Solution

    Well, like most of you, I also have low testosterone. I felt like crap all the time and didn't know why, I also had problems with ED and meds didn't really help me at all. I am a disabled vet, so I went through the VA and they did some tests to see how my t levels were. My doc...

    My level was 11. In women it should be around

    100-120. I now get testosterone pellets every 3-5 months. 200mg. My sex drive is through the roof. My husband loves it, of course. It has so many other benefits as well but increased libido is my favorite!

    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

    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.
