    I had a endocrinologist do some blood work just to see how my testosterone levels are and surprise surprise I have a low enough testosterone level 220 that he wrote me a script for a testosterone gel (Testim). Have any of you guys had experience with this before? He told me it's a Gel that you rub on usually in the mornings that has a 5g dose.

    ya its a gel that increases your test? What isnt there to get? Just make sure the areas clean and also you may get some irratation there. The gels are not really going to make you hulking huge or rage but you will feel alot better overall and should gain some nice muscle in the beginning.


    and i still laugh that you guys give people shit for low test, have you not figured it out yet? The foods, chemicals, daily grind of life are all so aweful now its crushing the human race. Most of the guys who say they have low test and get it checked to be in fact true...i bet have you idiots laughing at others about it have neve been checked and some of you have it as well :rofl:

    I always wondered, if you had the gel, and had normal test levels, would the gel do anything? I mean is it even enough to be "felt" as a tiny cycle or something? Or would it be too minor to make an impact?

    See if he'll prescribe you injections instead. I hear most won't but it's worth a try!

    edit: Also, I'm not sure if you lift but you should start.

    wait a couple weeks then go back to the doc and say the gel is giving you a rash, he will probably offer something else but then suggest the needle yourself.
