Testoterone: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4721027/ This is a good article, but subcutaneous testosterone is effective. The testosterone delivered sub q is easier and gives more steady state serum level.

Testosterone shots: This is a controlled drug, some forms have restricted use in the USA. Generally speaking, dosage, frequency and and route of administration should be prescribed and monitored by a physician, so please refer to your doctor or endocrinologist where you live
