    My doctor is not a fan of injections. He prefers pills (clomid). I went to the urologist because we were trying to have a baby and physician referred me to him because I was around 400. I am incomplete BSS. First I started taking 50mg every other day of clomid then my T level went to 800 but he said my estrogen increased too much so we reduced it to 25mg every other day. This also showed the estrogen too high. So he said take 12.5 mg every other day. I will see him in March and we will see again.

    T makes everything so much better. You feel stronger, you have more stamina, you sleep well but the side effects must be taken into consideration for each person. The shot might be good for someone who is not planning to have kids but then there is the shrinking problem also with the shots.

        I really don't know what Free T or Total T means. The doctor usually says your T level is at 800 or something like that.

                I have been taking injections 13 years with no side effects. I take 1ml of 200mg Cypiniate every week. Best drug I have ever used. I highly recommend.

                  An alternative to injections:

                  Testosterone Boosters and Depleters

                  Both men and women have both testosterone and estrogen in their bodies. Men have more testosterone and women have more estrogen. And in each, there is a balance. But as men age, the testosterone production declines significantly. Sooo…

                  Natural Testosterone builders: weightlifting in the gym, red wine, red grapes, cranberries and sugarless cranberry drinks, 125mg of ashwagandha daily, 50mg of zinc daily, 1000mg of horny goat weed daily, 100mg of Resveratrol daily to combat the effects of plastics, healthy fats such as salmon and sardines, and there are a number of Testosterone boosters on the internet market.

                  Testosterone depleters: plastics, hops in beer, flax seed, soy and soy-based foods, mint, vegetable oils, some types of nuts, and alcohol.

                    No scientific evidence that these help (or hinder) low testosterone in men with SCI/D. (KLD)

                    The first studies done on the incidence of low testosterone in men with SCI/D were done in the 1990s at the Bronx VA SCI Center. (KLD)

                  Then why the repeat test which started in 2017 and no results until November 2023? Who has become the beneficiary? Researchers or participants?
