Yes: Just be aware that testosterone can render you infertile, although your partner should still use some form of contraception if you two don't want any (more) children since it only takes one sperm . . . With that said, also remember to tell your prescribing physician & dispensing pharmacist everything you're taking whether prescription, over-the-counter, or dietary supplement.
