I would bet the scrotum application caused the boost in sex drive. I notice that works occasionly but not long term.Originally Posted by lexmuscleI think I've finally found the solution to my TRT issues. As I've talked about in my recent posts, I've started lower dose injections (25mg) test-e twice a week instead of the 50mg injections that were raising my total T way too high causing too much e2 conversion and anxiety/irritability. So anyway, Friday/Saturday I decided to use a tube of Testim just to see if it would bring back my sex drive by increasing DHT. And it worked! Sex drive is back after being gone for months! And I feel so much better, smooth and relaxed. I added 1/4 tube to my scrotum, and the rest to my shoulders/forearms. My question is, how much Testim should I use per week along with my low dose injections to keep my DHT levels up? I prefer to just add it to my scrotum, so maybe half a tube once a week? I know it's absorbed thru the scrotum faster and converts a lot more to DHT this way. I just don't want to have gel all over me where I can transfer it to friends or pets. Of course I'll get my levels checked, but my next appointment isn't until October. Also, does DHT increase your appetite? Because it makes me eat like a horse!
