Best long term testosterone treatments
Aug 17, 2003

I am 27yo, not HIV+ but I am hypogonadal. Currently on a program of testosterone gel and sometimes HCG injections. I am not happy with the compounded gel that I am using, and Androgel is way to expensive here in Canada. I would like to try a new program of injectable testosterone but do not know where to start. Can you please suggest a good regime so that I can bring it to my doctor. I am aware of Arimidex and will probably add that to the regime if necessary. I am looking for full testosterone replacement at a high normal level. The higher my t level, the better I feel.

Thanks for any help. Mike

Response from Mr. Vergel

Talk to your doctor about low dose HCG injections or Armidex monotherapy to increase your testosterone levels. There are no set protocols . Blood work and dose adjustment is always needed. Nelson
