What is recommended dose of testosterone to enter tanner stage 5 at age 18 with constitutional delayed puberty to enlarge my testis from 15ml to 18ml.
It won't : Testosterone doesn't cause testicular enlargement. In fact it can do the opposite by suppressing the pituitary gland's release of lh. We use it to induce puberty in small doses when testes are pre-pubertal size. The testicular enlargement that occurs is from the boy's own lh. If testicular growth is arrested, a pediatric endocrinologist should be consulted for the child. ...Read more
