Not FDA approved: Testosterone injections are not approved for use in women. Neither are patches or gels/creams/lotions. There are some oral combination hormone pills for menopausal women which contain both estrogen & T but they're not widely prescribed. Benefits & side effects are similar regardless of gender. However, do beware of virilization, hirsutism, clitoromegaly etc if excess T. Discuss w/your FamilyDoc. ...Read more

Adjust your dose: By testosterone side effects, i assume you're getting a prescription from your doctor. In that case, tell him/her exactly what your side effects are and when you notice them. S/he can make adjustments to your regimen to maximize benefit while minimizing harm. Rarely, s/he may need to prescribe a 2nd agent and/or recommend therapeutic phlebotomy. Regardless, go see your doc! ...Read more

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

See below: Studies have not shown any increase in testosterone when taking T.T.
