the doctor looking at my reviews point I suffered secondary hypogonadism, and want to start therapy with testosterone gel (AndroGel). nelson you think about my results and recommended therapy by the doctor?
Response from Mr. Vergel
Yes, I would start a testosterone gel or even human chorionic gonadotropin- HCG (gonadotropina corionia humana) to improve your total and free testosterone. In Venezuela, you guys also have available a great product called Nebido (testosterone undecanoate injections) that can be used every 3 months.
My book "Testosterone: A Man's Guide" is now translated into Spanish. It is available by Kindle and soon by print. La Testosterona: La Mejor Guia para Hombres
Let me know if you have any questions about HCG.
Follow up (Any Hope, 5/9/11)
