A bit of a diversion:
Transdermal T absorption is 10% at best. So that inflates your costs. You need to absorb 10mg/day to get high-normal lab numbers. So I expect that your levels will be less that satisfactory. But give it a go.
If you do not absorb, that can be a symptom of thyroid problems.
Your least cost TRT is self-injected testosterone.
You may need medication to manage E2 levels.
