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.

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.

If testicular growth is arrested, a pediatric endocrinologist should be consulted for the child.
