    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...

    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

    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!
