Not recommended...: TV series, Breaking Bad, notwithstanding, testosterone replacement therapy, whether injectable or topical eg gel, is not a DIY project. In other words, we (I) don't recommend making/taking homemade TRT. It's not worth the risk or savings. TRT is something that really needs to be monitored closely by your prescribing physician.
