The most sensors for testosterone are found in the heart. My libido before TRT was fine even though I had low... (14 replies)

... I just left the doc. My T is 214. Feb reading it was 535 and last dec it was 217. Doc says I am not absorbing the androgel and has wrote a prescript for 10% compounded gel.

... After 2 or 3 weeks the T causes the testicles to reduce production of sperm & testosterone. Some guys need more gel at that time.

It tries to make the testicles produce more testosterone & sperm. Good luck (13 replies)
