Fortesta (testosterone) for Hypogonadism, Male: "This is an update from an earlier post. 4 pumps works so well my doctor is backing me off to 3 pumps. I have found Fortesta works for me better than the generic that my pharmacy was giving me. Changed pharmacies and got the name brand-generics just don't seem to do it for me. I found some decent information on YouTube about weight loss while on testosterone and a couple of people pointed out that if you are overweight before starting TRT, you may end up also producing estrogen and not be able to lose weight. This did happen to me and being almost 50 has forced me to change my diet. Finally started losing weight and my free test numbers have gone through the roof. I am surprised at how much information is available. Not from doctors..."

Testim (testosterone) for Hypogonadism, Male: "Tried Nebido but I felt sick from it so I moved back to Testim and got stable levels, makes me feel fantastic. Its sticky for a few minutes but keep on rubbing and you will be ok, have in mind how much work women have to do with makeup and everything will feel better. The smell is not great to men but fertile women love it, there estrogen will attract to the pheromone included in testim called Pentadecalactone. I get sooo many women from the smell alone. I use one testim per day and one testogel, the Pentadecalactone will help to absorb it but the smell of two is a bit much so I use one of each."

Natesto (testosterone) for Hypogonadism, Male: "I'm a 48 year old hypogonadism male that self injected for 5 plus years and hated it. The only reason I did it was to avoid the transference of the gels to my kids and fiance. I was offered Natesto and was sceptical of the 3 times a day thing, but to be honest it literally takes a couple seconds and I get an energy boost every time I take it. My fiance is a little younger than I am so on date nights (concerts specifically) I'll take my third dose later and it's like a shot of espresso. This had been a life changer for me. I would feel good for a couple days with the shots then I could feel the come down. With the Natesto I feel even all the time and I have my workout energy back. There's a little learning curve to applying in the nose."

AndroGel (testosterone) for Hypogonadism, Male: "38 years old. I took Androgel 5mg /day for 7 months with no, or very few results. I went up to 7,5mg/day for a month with the same effect. The testosterone level is still very low. My doctor asked me to try Natesto for a month, we'll see from there !"

For Hypogonadism, Male: "I had low sex drive, painful joints, low energy, could not get an erection, and just felt like a 100 year old man. I got my testosterone checked and it was really low. I was prescribed 200 mg of testosterone and felt worse. After researching and talking to some people who had the same problem in the real world, they explain in detail that my body was naturally producing more testostrone naturally than I was getting through these shots. I lifted hard through my failing body and always did a high volume squat program. I read all the old Russian training journals and they concluded that without a doubt that a high volume extremely hard squat program produced way more testosterone than I was recieving from this treatment.testy atrophy"

Axiron (testosterone) for Hypogonadism, Male: "I started using Axiron 5 years ago. I didn't feel like myself. (I'm SUPER intense by nature). I saw my Dr and he gave me sample of Axiron. The affect was immediate. My energy levels skyrocketed and so did the hardness of my penis. My wife only complains now because I'm "like a 16 year old boy". BTW..I'm 45. Axiron has truly changed my life for the better."

Axiron (testosterone) for Hypogonadism, Male: "I have had great results with Axiron. My levels were at 320 and now at between 800-900 . I apply 60 MG of Axiron wait five minutes and then spray on the powdered Right Guard after the Axiron dry's. They recommend applying deodorant first but it is a lot of mess to clean up the deodorant of of the applicator."

AndroGel (testosterone) for Hypogonadism, Male: "I have been on the medicine just about 3 years now, and it has really turned my life around - I am 47. I use the minimum dose. T went from 150 -> 700 after just 6 months - maintains there regularly. One thing I do to help it work better is apply lotion 1 hour after using it every day. Turns out JAMA had an article that showed applying lotion or suntan lotion increased efficacy of absorption by 14-18%. I suggest this for those who are not getting desirable results. I get blood tested every 6 months - which is good, in my opinion."

Testim (testosterone) for Hypogonadism, Male: "Truthfully my t-levels were around 150 for a longtime, I am a 38 yr old male. I started on on testim about 4 1/2 months ago. I use one tube a day and it is applied each morning after my shower. After 2 months my levels went up to about 265 and truthfully I have much more energy, way more than I thought I was going to get. I have decided to stay at the same dose as I feel better so why change and increase it. Now when it comes to applying it, I use half a tube on each shoulder *one shoulder at a time* and rub for about 2 minutes until left slightly sticky. When finished I wash my hands thoroughly twice. *SMELL* it is a alcohol smell and is strong when applying it but smell is gone by the time you are dressed and ready to go about your day."

Testim (testosterone) for Hypogonadism, Male: "I don't understand how any man cannot like Testim Absorbs better that any other gel I have tried. Woman LOVE the smell. I can be grocery shopping and a woman will pass by and say "What is the cologne you have on!" and her eyes are bugging out of her head. The smell turns them on! Men don't notice. I like that!"

Axiron (testosterone) for Hypogonadism, Male: "OK guys, time-out! I never thought I'd come to the defense of a consumer product, much less one that costs such an obscene amount of money, but: 1. There are a lot of guys on here complaining they had low testosterone (Low T) and giving their numbers before treatment. A large portion of them say Axiron took their numbers up into the 500 range. THIS IS WHAT THE DRUG IS SUPPOSED TO DO! If you're roughly between 348-1000, you're back to normal. Axiron worked. The fact that you still feel tired, or fatigued, or depressed is most likely due to other issues. I think there are too many guys on here expecting to take this drug and it turn them into the Hulk, make them happy all the time, and provide for them sex whenever they want it."

AndroGel (testosterone) for Hypogonadism, Male: "I am 66 and used Androgel in the past for about 4 years, max dose (4 pumps), with T around 450. Then med was dropped from formulary; I switched to Fortesta. Doc started me on max dose (7 pumps; has different concentration) but had to decrease to just 2 pumps to get acceptable T level (7 pumps Fortesta gave T of 3,500!). The formulary changed again and I'm back on Androgel 1.62% for nearly a year, max dose of 4 pumps, but T now only 175. This new stuff smells and feels different than the Androgel I was on before and is made in Mexico which makes me suspect improper manufacturing or storage. Am definitely not pleased with this product now, and wonder what I'm actually using. Will ask Doc about applying to thighs where I used Fortesta."

Testim (testosterone) for Hypogonadism, Male: "34 YOM Began 1 tube of generic testim 6 months ago for T levels around 100, insurance would not cover pump. After approx 1 week, I broke out in a rash, however kept using and after 1-2 weeks, rash cleared up. Yes, it is a process to apply it in the morning, albeit a maybe 5 minute process. The best advice is to USE rubber medical gloves to apply, otherwise it is a complete mess to clean up, and USE a metal tube key to get the last 25% out of the tube. Rub it on until it begins drying,(30 seconds maybe) wait a couple minutes to put a t shirt on, and do your thing. I haven't noticed really any smell at all, certainly not bothersome. I do not have recent lab results, so I will not attest to its efficacy,I just want to share my tips."

AndroGel (testosterone) for Hypogonadism, Male: "I took Axiron for a year or 2. My T level was 680 on my last test. After taking Androgel 1.62 for 9 months, my T level is now 189. My doctor is asking me to double up (4 pumps instead of 2). I am very disappointed in the effectiveness of Androgel 1.62 and also concerned with any side effects that might accompany doubling my dose. Any comment?"

Testim (testosterone) for Hypogonadism, Male: "2 tubes a day raised me over 1000 from 262. Way too high. Now on 1.5 tubes. It works IF YOU APPLY IT CORRECTLY. I'm laughing at all these guys that say it doesn't dry. Try following the instructions of rubbing it in until it dries folks. Like literally it takes 30 seconds. It is NOT a self drying gel like Androgel. Yikes man! As for the smell? It's added. Other reviewers are incorrect. It's on their website. Do some research. It's not the T gel it's the cologne with pheromones they add to it. As for what it smells like? Awesome. I've had woman after woman tell me I smell awesome. I don't know what's wrong with these guys who DONT want to smell sexy."

Aveed (testosterone) for Hypogonadism, Male: "I have been on Aveed for six month.5 weeks After the 3rd shot I had blood work. My test levels are 400. Witch is pretty low. Before getting on Aveed. I was on test cypionate. 2 injection per week of .5 ml each. My test level then where at 890 . Plus every time you get an injection you have to go to your doctor'said office and stay under observation for 30 mn. So you get charge $35 for the shot and $50 for the injection. Cypionate with anastrozol for a month supply would only cost me $12."

Depo-Testosterone (testosterone) for Hypogonadism, Male: "Had low testosterone. I was in a car accident and had a head injury. This caused my pituitary gland to stop working and shrank from the pressure in my brain. I didn't want a patch. I inject every 2 weeks and it works great. It's much cheaper, nobody has to know unless you tell them and it takes 5 minutes every 2 weeks. What could be easier."

For Postpartum Breast Pain: "I had a hysterectomy (total) in 2012. Since then I have had decreased hormones (they gave me estradiol in increasing dosages with no help). The beginning of this year my urologist ran very specific tests, I had very little estrogen (I was not absorbing the estradiol pills full strength, it was being wasted thru digestion), so he put me on Divigel (estrogen gel, to apply to my upper thigh area daily). The other parts of female hormones I had absolutely None of were progesterone and testotestosterone (I didn't know that women produced it also, and is very important to severe hot flashes and severe mood swings.) I cannot live a normal life without it, I get completely crazy without the small pea sized dose I smear on my calf every day."

AndroGel (testosterone) for Hypogonadism, Male: "I had T levels below 200 and the Doc started me on Androgel 1.62. I saw minor improvements at 2 and 3 pumps per day, but didn't see normal T numbers until he prescribed a max dose of 4 pumps daily. I had libido and ED issues that have greatly improved. The main side effect I have is that I have some body acne on the shoulders and upper chest, I've also had a little more chest hair. Without insurance and even with insurance the gel can be too pricey for many."
