    diagnosed with low testosterone, after depression, tripping anxiety, and brain fog. had a slew of bloodwork done and was diagnosed with extremely low T. I workout daily, eat well, don't drink or smoke and im in fairly good shape, so I never suspected to have low Testosterone. Tried to take natural routes to raise my testosterone; they were futile. Now Im on testosterone replacement therapy, also taking an aromatase inhibitor to keep my estrogen low.

    feel free to ask me anything

    How long have you been on it?

    What is the monthly cost?

    How's your depression and brain fog?

    Any other noticeable changes?

    Is the $120 for two months part of co-pay?

    Did the doctor suggest you have low T when he or she saw your tiny baby balls or did you bring it up?

    High estrogen comes with a slew of negative effects. Need the AI to prevent that

    Did you develop an interest in cuckoldry prior to your diagnosis and if so since commencing trt has your interest in said cuckoldry diminished?

    It’s too bad they only administer enough to get your levels back to normal . I was getting injections at the clinic every week. Wasn’t worth it .

    check out other pharmacies. $50/month is expensive. I've been on TRT for a few years now, and I'm paying $17/month.

    Usually it's about free test, and the range is usually 200-800 ng/dl. 800 ng/dl is like a 20 year old, and 200 is someone with issues or a 100 year old male.

    I tested at 188 then 205.

    my dick does work weirdly. Thats one of the reasons why I didn't suspect it was low testosterone. Im still horny, but definitely not as much as I used to be. I have no Erectile Dysfunction either.
