      I started on injections and tbh I am convinced they don’t work as well as the gel. My levels are 3x higher than they used to be and super duper stable since switching to gel. IMO it’s the difference between daily dosing and weekly or biweekly dosing— they say the injections absorb slowly, but in my experience it was like a roller coaster. Daily gel has been a game changer for me. I’ve only had access to gel since getting a job with good enough insurance to cover it, the gel is $$$$$$$ vs injections are $

        Wow, I didn’t know this. I inject myself now every 3 weeks as opposed to bi weekly and I have to admit the changes were happening what I thought was a bit too slow. Do you have regular bloodwork done to check your testosterone level and your liver?

        I get blood work done every 3 months usually, even though I’m stable enough now to do every 6. I like to know what’s going on since I’ve had so many issues with my health.

Not to mention I’m really allergic to one of the two brands, and can only use androgel.

        IMO injections will be a thing of the past in the next 5-10 years. They’ve already stopped teaching people to inject in their butts, something I had a mild cyst complication from

        The endo I saw when I started injections was so overworked I was told to watch YouTube videos, not given a video, but just told to find one. I ended up finding butt ones so that’s why I did it like that. New endo actually gives instructions which is nice

        Donating blood helps with potential heart risk for everyone, but especially those with high CBC and red blood cell count from hormonal medications. Not just testosterone causes this, but it’s a big culprit
