My brother has been compounding my hormones since 2000. I just saw a doctor who ordered blood tests to check my hormone levels, primarily because my hair won't stop falling out. The doctor's office faxed the results to my brother and she had prescribed testosterone cream on the labia. I didn't like that answer and now the doctor is in Australia until mid January. The way my brother explained it is that the testosterone will increase the libido, it will build up muscle tissue and do several other positive things. It is not dangerous to apply to the labia. I am going to call the office and ask that another physician explain the results to me. Compounding HRT is the way to go. The pharmacist can closely duplicate the hormones naturally produced in your body when menopause causes them to produce less.
However, the rewards of this treatment are what most patients are more interested in. For a man who has seen not only his health, but his entire lifestyle as well, become diminished by the symptoms caused by Low T, finding lasting relief from those symptoms is like being given a second chance at living a fulfilling life. To be able to restore that invigorating sense of virility; to see that healthy muscle tone return; to be able to have a satisfying sex life; to regain stamina and energy; these are all things that are truly valued by most men.
