    The problem with transdermal testosterone is that it must pass through your epidermis and subcutaneous layers. In the subcutaneous layer you have adipose tissue (fat), that is if you have a healthy bodyfat percentage, and that tissue contains alot of aromatase enzymes which convert testosterone into estrogen. So essentially, the testosterone your body needs is being converted into estrogen before your body can use it in its original form (testosterone). So you're left with sub-par testosterone levels and elevated E2 levels... causing you sex-drive/libido issues, slowly increasing bodyfat, and everything else associated with low test and high E2 levels. This doesn't happen to everyone, but why chance it?

    I agree with the advice given above... injectable testosterone is the way to go.

    I was on 200 mgs test cyp a week from a HRT clinic and had no sex drive at all so they moved it up to 400 mgs a week but the results was the same I had all the other benefits of test but no sex drive that was the main reason I wanted to go on in the first place I have read that the cream seemed to be better for people with ED my test levels when i was first tested when i was 21 was 220 the next time i was tested at 28 it was 154 so it is steadily dropping other then my testosterone levels all my blood test have been fine

    I would rather take test + hCG than transdermal testosterone .

    400mg/week is bananas! That's NOT responsible HRT protocol.

    hCG is just what some bro's need... that is, those that are having issues with low energy and ED.

    Best of luck to you!

    Best regards,

    Nice info, I agree. Stick to long acting esters (cypionate & enathante) and the dosage your doc recommends. Orals testosterones (methyltest & andriol ) have many problems with them too.

    200mg of test with hCG may put you over... just keep your eye on it, bro.

    G'luck.

    Testim ( a transdermal gel) worked just fine for me. My levels went from 200 to 1000 in a month.

    with me it was more of a 4 week thing. I had the drop but then again. I think it was more mental. I was using testim and I was using 1 tube then moved to 2 tubes, and although I was at 1200 at one test. I have been on 3 cc of test injectible and I never got over the 600 mark consecutively during months of trying to zero me in. I also got so much build from using diffrent soaps and lotins with testim it just wasn't absorbing at all thru my skin from the blood test that were taken even hrs after applying it.

    So again I state it may be an indidvidual thing, not all solutions work for everyone.

    Is 20% Testosterone Propionate Gel (from a compounding pharmacy) stronger than Testim or Androgel ?

    I just finished a 30 month supply. IMO it is junk and I got nothing but raised test levels, from 230 to 400 big deal. Getting ready for the real deal

    It is like rubbing alcohol, cum and perfume on you all at once.

    My test levels are around 460; would love to get them up to 800-900 with Testim (from doc) or 20% Test Propionate (from Oasis). Possible?

    Testosterone Cream

    You may also want to get your estrogen levels checked if you are on that high of a dosage of the test cream 20%. If estrogen levels increase your sex drive may also cancel out.
