Shouldn't be happeni: That isn't supposed to occur. I hope you are rotating your sites. You may need to see what base the testosterone is in, but also - your profile says you are 19 years old, and while it's not impossible, most 19 year olds shouldn't be deficient in testosterone. I hope you are seeing a very knowledgeable practitioner, and hopefully they are looking into why someone so young is deficient.

Why trt???: You should have a clear indication for testosterone injections. Are you without testes because of surgery or congenital defect? Changing sex from female to male? If not, you are likely to discover that the harm exceeds the benefit. Are you under the care of a dr of urology or endocrinology? I wonder if there is something besides testosterone in those injections. You may wish to get a second opinio.
