There are beneifts to each method. First, the shots are "done in one", or if prescribed once a month, it's over in a few moments. However, you may pay for the injection time with the nurse. The gel allows you to spread it just as you want it, and the application is totally under your control. If prescribed once a day, you make certain you apply it. No one else need know. If you want to confine it to an area under your tee-shirt, only the tee-shirt will be exposed to it, until you wash it off. Some object the the alcohol smell of the drying gel. Others find it a turn on. In humid climates, drying of the gel may take a little longer, and sweating may re-activate the smell briefly. Daily application allows for a smoother, consistent T-level in the body. A shot spikes the level, when then falls off over time.
As for the pump, this is just another method of applying a gel, with a pre-measured amount. I have no experience with this, and cannot comment further. Perhaps someone else can share their experience.
