I Have Very Low Testosterone

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 82 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?

    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.

    Well, I was diagnosed with Low T almost 2 years

    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
