Why am I Here: Lacking in ability to keep an erection and desire with my sexual partner. Workouts are increasingly becoming harder and have not enough desire to complete them.
I started using testosterone cream two months ago(Sept 26th). It's a compounded cream from a national well known pharmacy. Two pumps twice daily, rubbing it between my thighs. Dosage is 1 gram at 200mg. I also am taking DHEA which I have stopped this past week due to an article I've read on the effect of DHEA/Simvastatin(Cholesterol)
I have since started taking Avodart and am in week three. I have experience no symptoms, good or bad other than little water weight in upper body, giving me a knot at times behind my scapula.
Stopped taking cream and avodart on November 19th and had new labs done on December 8th to begin a new baseline. Will post once receiving these back. Injections will start after the holidays with new T doc which I was recently introduced through. Has same protocol as KSman has been preaching in the threads.
