    Basically, I've had man boobs since I can remember. For some reason or another my body does not produce enough testosterone. I'm 35 years old I'll probably have man boobs till I die, unless something changes. I lost some weight on this drug but all it does is make me sexually excited.

When placed higher, at the top of the muscle, the wound heals i ... Show Full Comment

    My urologist suggested Testosterone for help with erections. I have age-related low T. After several injections, he suggested pellets as more convenient for me i.e. office visit 4-5 months instead of every two weeks. Fantastic energy results. I turned a 500 sq. ft. weed patch into a verdant garden. I loved the hard shovel work. Turns back the clock from late 60s to about 40. I see beautiful women ... Show Full Comment
