How Can I Get My Doctor to Give Me More Testosterone?
So, you know that male sex hormone that is produced by the testes and stimulates the development of secondary sexual characteristics like muscle mass and sperm production? Well, unfortunately my gonads produce as much testosterone as a little boy.
Prior to starting testosterone therapy my total testosterone serum was 159 pg/mL. My physician administered 50 mg of testosterone in 5 grams of gel per tube for everyday use.
My total testosterone serum increased to 390 pg/mL and I felt better. But after two months of therapy the synthetic testosterone suppressed my natural testosterone and my serum level fell to 147 pg/mL.
How can I get my physician to prescribe me additional testosterone? My general physician, who’s a qualified practitioner of medicine in the United States, does not want to give me a greater amount of testosterone when I clearly need it.
I am a healthy young male (40 yr. old) and physically fit. I want to obtain more testosterone from my doctor so I can feel like a masculine man again. How can I get my doc to give me the extra testosterone that my body needs?
