I have just started my very first cycle of testosterone and am taking danabol ds, are there any side effects?

Many side effects: Yes, indeed. Why are you doing this? If you take t plus other androgenes, your testicles will shrink, since your natural hormone production is not needed. Your blood count will go up, and this can cause thrombosis (heart attack, stroke, etc). Blood cholesterol/lipids gets worse (heart attack). Acne, sleep apnea. Even if you are a body builder, the potential side effects are not worth it. ...Read more

What side effects can I expect after my first testosterone shot?

Maybe nothing . . .: Not to be rude, but we should always ask prescribing doctor about potential side effects before agreeing to take something. If you're lucky, you'll feel better, assuming you really needed it & got correct dose. If you didn't get enough, nothing will happen, aside from pain, infection & nerve damage from shot. If too much, then change in mood for worse, hair loss, acne, moobs, can't pee etc. ...Read more

If i can raise my testosterone level fom 306 naturally will i still have the same side effects as the injections?

Yes, if possible...: Raising serum testosterone with natural supplement is still an unreachable dream although many "naturally" herbal companies have constantly touted their such products online. What they have done serve them well for political correctness and commercialism with no scientifically documented effect. For one at 79, life should come first ahead of anything else. Detailing? Ask and talk with doc timely. ...Read more
