Taking testosterones is bad even for an otherwise healthy person. It had bad effects on liver, prostate, acne, and affects a person's mental health. Visit this site for more info: https://www.uofmhealth.org/health-library/d00558a1

At your age low testosterone would be a rare cause of your problem. Treating a disease you do not have is never healthy. See a Endocinologist if you suspect that is your problem. It can increase BP, rage, and cancer of the liver.
