I'm beginning to research this...have been diagnosed with low test...
Are there any side effects of taking test? hair loss/ body hair, etc? Already have a good amount of body hair, too much that is.
I remember years ago when I talked to an endo he said (because I seemed pretty muscular even though my test was like 300) "testosterone is a funny thing...maybe your body just doesn't need that much.". Was he just spouting complete nonsense?
Now, more than ever I have the side effects though, low libido, depression, low energy, difficult to work out hard and recover (just feel exhausted the next day)., etc.
At first I was thinking just clomid would keep things going and raise T, but this seems frowned upon...
Not sure where to get hcg...hopefully the doctor will prescribe it. If he doesn't, I guess I'll try to do some kind of renewman.com thing or something. I'd want to get prescriptions for stuff if I could.
What are the downsides of using gels vs. injectibles? I have a hard time seeing a doctor giving me carte blanche to inject at home...although this SC injections seems interesting. I would guess injections would give a slower steadier release?
I'm eager to get some blood work done...and to talk to the endo...oct 1st is the doctor appt.
