I’m just shy of age 71. I’ve always had a high sex drive, still do. I’ve only had two T tests, three years ago, 260, recently, 290. I don’t know if that was normal variation, or due to progesterone cream applications over the last few years. My Medicare insurer turned down a prescription the urologist wanted for Androgel. To help with weight loss. Despite those T numbers, I’m still randy as hell, and despite my alcohol consumption, my balls are still huge per internet sources. And many lovers over the years. (The urologist didn’t say anything was wrong.) The other morning I woke up with wood, walked out to the patio, and urinated a strong stream with a dick curving heavenward.
I think this approach is fine. I must say having been doing this for years, treating hundreds and thousands of men I have been underwhelmed with the results with topicals. Injections can cause peaks and valley and I have many younger men inject twice a week that smooths out the peaks and valleys. I think it is appropriate to follow the advice of your primary doctor and endocrinologist. I have just seen too many men spend months or years with gels with sub optimal results. Many men are diagnosed with depression and are not really depressed (I have no idea if this applies to you), but the presumed depression is base dupon low T.
My recommendation would be to pursue this but if a few months pass and results are modest consider another approach. Pellets are one approach to have smooth levels of T and are placed every 4 months.
