    Cool


    In my case, as in my fathers, I have relitavely sparse body hair, little on my legs and almost none on my chest, I have a thin beard as well. I have been on TRT for more than 15 years, pills, creams and shots. I am in my late 50's and have never gained a single body hair, nor have I lost a single hair on my head as a result. I believe if you are genetically predisposed to be hairy you will be and visa versa. You may or may not sprout additional hair as you age, as your father and other family members probably have, but I do not believe that exogenous Testosterone will contribute to it, It definately has not in my case. I don't think that it is anything to worry about.

    Well may be you escaped the Magilla Gorilla curse for now, but anything is possible once you have proper hormone function. So the chances of having own homemade sweater are very highly As long as you are not howling at the full moon you will be fine LOL...

    I would be looking for factors which are causing your low T in the first place then condemining your self to TRT when there may be no need to. Too many guys are being put on TRT when they do not need be..

    Hmm, thanks. Not sure what else I can do though? Don't want to be stuck relying on it either. I wonder what happens if you just decide to stop taking it..wonder if you can live or you'll eventually literally die since you'll have zero T.

But I'm not a guy who shaves so I'm just wondering how much it can change my apparence since I feel like I have a lot of "potential", haha.
    As long as it does not reduce hair on top of head having your own fur is not bad in the winter time..

    I think this is the first case where where I agree with your intestinal parasite theory. It's a primate parasite that is consuming the host.

    Nothing extreme, but I have noticed that my facial hair grows faster and I've noticed some random hairs that I didn't before. Of course, some of that may come from age too. LOL. My wife is a hair stylist and noticed that my hair is getting thicker, which should sound like a great thing, except I have always had a healthy head of hair and now I have to go in 4-5 days earlier to keep it maintained.
