I am 62 and have been using Testopel pellets for about 18 months. I felt really bad all of the time and was told I had fibromyalgia.

Comment:
Earlier this year I was diagnosed with Male hypogonadism (low T). My level was 240, so I started with Testim 1% for about three months. My T levels went up to 460 on my second month, and then my levels went down to 290 on my third month. It possibly was because my skin wasn’t absorbing it. So, my Dr switch me to Testopel. The procedure to insert the pellets wasn’t too bad. I had some minor dis ... Show Full Comment
