I'm now using about 1.5 grams of 5% compounded T cream. I mix it with a splash of water to make it spread out. I then apply to shaved shoulders, shaved armpits and any remainder to shaved scrotum/thighs. I spread it thin and rub it in vigorously. It takes a bit to dry.
Works like magic. Last T levels were at 700. I've been low T for a very long time, so I have a good "feel" for when it's right and when it's not.
I cannot use Androgel. Even with massive doses, it simply does not work for me.
Shots were a roller coaster ride, and I react to the carrier oil. Causes me coughing fits post injection and breathing problems. Not everyone has these issues with injections, but they are a "known" side effect for some.
