Testim absorbtion

Feb 11, 2004

I used to apply androgel to my abdomen. I have swithed to testim and the directions specifically state to not put the gel on my abs. I cannot find info anywhere as to why i should not. Any thoughts?

Response from Mr. Vergel

Do not worry about it. Use your abs. The company was required to say that because of "tranferance" issues in men who use it and may rub their bodies with their wives during sex and transfer some of the testosterone to them. You can also use your shoulders. Talk to your doctor about this.
