Need more info: Hi. Like all drugs, testosterone can produce desirable benefits and undesirable side effects. If you are hypogonadal and have poor libido and erectile function, low energy level, and weakness, yes, testosterone may help those things. You will only know if low testosterone is their cause by correcting your testo level and seeing if the problems resolve. RBC mass & prostate should be followed.

Do U really need it?: Best discussed with your Dr. Testosterone replacement may be indicated if you have a low testosterone level in your body associated with low libido &/or performance problems sexually. Will do nothing for your energy if your testosterone levels are within normal limits. Good Luck
