gel or shot

  1. gel or shot

    If my doc decides to put me on testosterone replacement for a while, should I go with the gel or the shots? Are they both about the same price? I would rather have the shot, since I would be worried about transferring the gel to someone else if I touched them where it was applied. Will using testosterone replacement kill fertility? Is HCG the only way to keep my balls from disappearing?

    I'm glad I haven't started anything yet, my doc said the gel was the best since it keeps a steady level, whereas the shot is up and down. I asked him if using the gel would aromatize much test to estrogen and he said no. He also said I shouldn't need an AI, didn't mention anything about HCG, I'll be sure to suggest it though. No, I'll DEMAND it haha

  3. Gel does not have a high rate of conversion, more to DHT. I prefer gels if using new androgel to start out remeasure in a week to see revaluate. Gels get such a bad rap but 4 pumps is putting people up into the 1100 TT range 2-3 hours. This gel tends to much more absorbent with less gel, and can workout, have contact in 2 hours. You do not start every thing at once, but one thing at a time. If you have childern then you may want to opt to shots, but starting out with gels would be the way to go. They are more biological correct.
