DancesWithWolves, mine was in the low 300 range. With Andro Gel you can't control exactly how your body absorbs it. If you sweat more you absorb less. While on it one time I had it checked and it was like 1000. I feel like and my test numbers support that injectable testosterone is much more consistent. Last time I had it checked after over two and a half weeks since taking a 1cc shot, it was around 200. It's the fountain of youth for a man. Get yours tested.

@ lovelife...if you don't mind me asking, what was your T level when you started the treatments back at age 41? I've been feeling that my levels might be low (lack of energy, loss of muscle, etc...) so I got checked and mine was 497. The doc says that's a bit on the low side but he's still calling it "normal".

I have to agree with lovelife. Its also not just the sexual advantages of it. It has many good advantages Like more energy, loss of weight, less aches and pains.

@ Hotwifetoo, I'm good with having to stay on it. It has improved my quality of life so much, I would pitch a fit if my doctor tried to take me off of it. A 1cc injection in my leg every two weeks is easy and painless. My life has greatly improved and I'm thankful for it.

I will when I'm starting to see the physical decline (thinking 60ish at my activity level). I would rather live 10 more good years at that point then 20 more feeble ones.

As someone who did medical research and now drug discovery, I would NEVER allow myself or my man to use that stuff. Your own body stops making testosterone when you use those drugs and you will have to be on them the rest of your days. Not worth the risks involved.

@ MrandMrsSmith472. My doctor does blood work on me every 6 months, but I am going to ask her about my estrogen levels just to be sure. Thanks for the advice.

Mr Smith is on Test-o-Pel pellets that get injected about every 4 months. Since it is listed as minor surgery, insurance picks up the whole tab! It's a bit of a pain in the posterior (literally) for the first week or two after injection, but effortless after that. Mr Smith has been on various forms of low-T meds since 2006, and this is the best he's found.

One note - your doc should also monitor your estradiol (estrogen) levels during low-T therapy. Men tend to convert excess testosterone into estrogen, and too much estrogen can negate the good of low-T therapy. There are meds you can take to scrub excess estrogen out of your system...

There are other problems my doctor has with the testosterone gel. If you sweat heavily it won't be absorbed as much that day. You have to leave it on at least 5 hours. Females and pre-puberty males can't come in contact with the area you applied it. It can cause them to go into puberty early. With women, they can come in contact with it and it throw their estrogen levels out of wack. The injection is a much more consistent dose. I can tell towards the end of my two weeks my energy level is lower. As for heart problems, heart desease kills my mothers family and cancer kills my fathers family. If I have this quality of life for a few less years, I will take this fountain of youth. There is also not enough research on the long term use of lower doses of testosterone replacement because it is still relatively new. Works for me, but do your own research.

I can only speak from personal experience. About 5 years ago I had my testosterone checked and it was low. I was 41 then. My doctor put me on Andro gel and it worked within a month. I lost weight, gained muscle, I lift weights 5 days a week, I had more energy, improved mood, more sexual desire, stronger erections and improved quality of life. The only draw back was it caused some acne on my shoulders where I applied it. I discussed it with my doctor and she suggested injectable testosterone. After being supervised by a PA for the first injection, I was turned loose. I get a 10ml bottle filled at CVS and take a 1cc injection every two weeks. It's easy to do and I will never stop. It's the fountain of youth for a man. If you haven't gotten your testosterone checked and are over 40, please do it. But be warned that your body will go back to your younger years of getting random erections and being horny! It changes you in a good way. Don't believe these ambulance chasing attorneys that are now after testosterone manufacturers. You won't have roid rage. It's not like doing a cycle of steroids.
