Will tribulus help me boost my testosterone?

Will tribulus help me boost my testosterone?

Sometimes: Although tribulus reportedly increases testosterone, in our practice the effects are modest at best. For an individual with severe deficiency of testosterone, tribulus alone is rarely satisfactory. I would also expect that there is a wide range in the quality of tribulus since the active ingredient content varies depending on how the plant was grown... ...Read more

I am using himalaya gokshura ( indian tribulus). For testosterone boost.. Does it have any growth hormone which affect my body? Or any serious thing ?

Don't use it: Unless you have severe male hormone deficiency confirmed by biochemical testing you would not get benefits from testosterone supplements.
Morever over the counter health care supplements are not well regulated and the content in this are not standardized and may not be safe to consume it.
I strongly advise you to stop using as it would not help you and has the potential to harm you. ...Read more

What do you recommend if i take 200mg testosterone shots weekly and still having erection problems?

Go see your doctor: 200mg weekly of Testosterone is a lot of T. Starting dose is typically 1mg/kg/wk which suggests that you're taking enough for someone who weighs 440lbs. Maybe you do! But best to talk to your doc about your concerns. And get your labs checked. You could be at greater risk for heart attack, stroke, blood clots, etc, not to mention hair loss, prostate enlargement, moobs & change in mood for worse. ...Read more

My testosterone is 386 I am 35 i take 4 shots a week to help......Whag should my levels be...

Testosterone: There are different testosterone tests that can be tested. A typical range of total testosterone is 270-1070 ng/ dl. A typical range of free testosterone is 50-210 pg/ml. These are estimations, as the ranges vary from lab to lab. Your doctor should have the normal range from the lab that tested your blood. I would discuss this with your doctor. Hope this helps. ...Read more

I take testosterone shots 400 mg every 4-weeks, and i'm not getting a boost anymore, my last level was 464.  What is causing the lag ?

Testosterone: First of all your testosterone level after supplementation falls well within the normal range. The "boost" you're referring to is not the goal of supplimentation. This is the allure of Anabolic steroids in general. Eventually, when your levels are consistently within the normal range, you just feel "normal". ...Read more

What do you suggest if my husband takes testosterone shots on thursday at .06 or 120mg when should he do a blood test to check level?

Depends: Shots of testosterone (T) is not the recommended way of receiving T since it will cause a large rise in the level within a few days of injection, and then gradually fall. The T level will depend on when it is drawn after the injection. Doing it after 2 days will show a peak level, doing it before the next dose will show a trough level. T gels provide a more stable level and is more physiologic ...Read more

If my husband takes testosterone shots on thursday at .06 or 120mg, when should he take a blood test to check his testosterone level?

Peak & trough levels: We need both peak (highest) & trough (lowest) levels to determine optimal dose & frequency. We typically recommend checking peak level a day or two after an injection while we check trough level a day before injection (or perhaps that morning prior to getting shot). Peak level is affected by dose while trough level is affected by frequency of injection. There are other labs that should be monitore ...Read more

Check estrogens: Make sure your doctor is checking estrone and Estradiol levels. If these are high, it may be due to testosteone dose being too high. Might be better to use lower dose once weekly. Estrogens block testosterone function. Also u can take natural aromatase inhibitors to block conversion of testosterone to estrogens, such as zinc, resveratrol, saw palmetto. ...Read more

But rather than focus on t, pay attention to healthy nutrition & daily activity. ...Read more
