In brief: Yes.

Have testosterone, fsh, lh checked to determine which type of hypogonadism you have.
If secondary hypogonadism, then HCG or Clomiphene citrate may be better options. Also, check thyroid and overall health to rule out other causes.

In brief: Not advised.

There are only certain indications for testosterone treatment.
These include documented and persistently low testosterone level or having things like a brain tumor that affects testosterone production. There are many risks to testosterone including risk of stroke, heart attack, stimulating prostate cancer. Your testicles will also shrivel up (atrophy) if you take testosterone.
