In brief: 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.

In my experience, testosterone shots(cypnioate ) should be given weekly and effects are seen within 3-4 weeks, not 2 years!what testosterone and dose are you using?

I agree. I think the pellet insertions work the best. Too high a testosterone level can cause thickened blood requiring phlebotomies, thinning hair and erectile dysfunction as well.
