    Started Treatment for low libido with Fortesta Gel 6 weeks ago, used 2 pumps each thigh for 5 weeks, pump ran out. Went back to doctor today, testosterone levels raised less than 100 points after 5 weeks! Doctor prescribed 3 pumps a day for 6 more weeks, I did not feel any difference after the first 5 weeks!

    Before Fortesta, I had all the symptoms of low-T. Lack of energy, lack of motivation, grumpy, lack of endurance, sleep issues, decline in sexual performance/satisfaction, difficulty losing weight, etc. After starting Fortesta, every one of those symptoms declined markedly or went away.

    Starting just two hours after my first dose, I felt a big change in mental awareness and my sluggishness went away. My headache went away and I was able to actually focus. Day 2 my self confidence came back and I was full of energy and self esteem. I stepped on the scale and for the first time it did not say LOSE WEIGHT FAT BOY. It just gave me a number. It is definitely not a placebo effect. I ho ... Show Full Comment

    Comment:
    I have been on Fortesta going on 45 months now, 4 pumps per day. I have noticed that once I get into the 4th week of a pump, around 110 - 115 pumps, that the amount of medication delivered with some of the pumps is less that normal. Has anyone else experienced any issues with inconsistent amounts of the gel being delivered? Thanks
