Maybe (not) . . .: Rather than focus on dose, ask yourself how you feel. Can you tell a difference as a result of your supplemental testosterone? I'm assuming you don't want any more children as testosterone in any shape or form will tend to render you infertile. The key is the find the dose that's right for you. Check your labs regularly for safety. And watch out for side effects. Btw, did your pcp evaluate cause.
