    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...

    I just started my testosterone therapy.

    I had an injection once and now I'm trying Androgel for 1 month. Anyone here has the same problem- let's be friends. I need some support and information.

    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...

    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...

    Got Low T, Need A Bit Of Help Read On!

    Hey guys, this is not a story per SE, but a little help from a bodybuilder. I have been running testosterone Enanathate for 8 years now, at a very high dose. Way higher than what you guys use as a TRT/HRT method. Most TRT/HRT doses sit around the 100-150mg per week, this should...

    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

    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.

    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!
