Control

Medication

1. Testosterone Injections:

  • Testosterone injections are the easiest way to get to therapeutic levels. 

  • More control of dosage

  • No cross contamination

 

2. Testosterone Gels

  • Mimicking the body's natural rhythms.

  • It may be harder to get to a therapeutic level.

  • May contaminate others you come in contact with.

  • Must apply them once (or in some cases, twice) a day.

 

3. Others

  • creams can be effective, but they're messy, and they don't penetrate the skin as well as gels

  • Pellets and drops, however, are either ineffective or impractical and make accurate dosing all but impossible
