Testosterone Supp: First things first. Just because your T was low 2 years ago doesn't mean it still is. You should visit primary care and have it checked again. Because levels vary it should be remeasured twice about 3 weeks apart. If low on both, your doctor can prescribe supplement. There are 2 other gel products available now, plus patches or inj. Thanks for trusting HealthTap!

I am confused: I hope your physician ordered the androgel because your free testosterone was low, very low. So at this point you have no sperm and your ability to have children is gone. Why? Ask your doctor why and what you should be taking. It is possible your ability to produce testosterone on your own has gone away. Of course if there was low free testosterone than the replacement was appropriate.
