    testosterone level (88 ng/dL). Normal range for a man my age is ~800. It's never affected my sex life. Horny as ever. Super horny when my levels reach ~600. I noticed I was tired most of the time and I could not remember the simplest things, suck as my mobile number. That's...

    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

    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...

    Hello my friend! My name is John

    and I'm looking for someone with low testosterone that have been on a replacement therapy. At the moment I'm on angrogel and don't think it working for me. Is there anyone that started with angrogel and have to move to other medication. Thanks for you help

    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
