Yes: Any form of testosterone can help or hurt depending on the individual. Too little is bad, so is too much. Even the right amounts can cause your blood to get too thick, acne, hair loss, man boobs, testicles get small, sperm count goes to 0, ejaculation stops, etc. To do it right, have a doctor who knows how to manage testosterone help you.
