    Very pricey.
    I may be wrong. But Drs simply arent allowed to prescribe without the patient meeting certain criteria. The main one being blood levels lower than 6.0.
    It is perfectly legal for docs to prescribe test without it meeting a certain criteria. Its not as strict as getting say dexies for instance, these require government authoritarrr to be approved before prescribing them.

    yeah, I know some will. But Health dept says for TRT needs to be under 6.0, over 40, then 8.0. Health dept cracking down on Drs flouting the rules. It is actually illegal for Drs to prescribe Test to guys with normal T levels. Be better to treat the symptoms instead of just relying on a 'low' test level I reckon. Also, GP's are now not allowed to prescribe without the input of an Endocrinologist, since 2017.

    With women slightly different, my GF gets prescribed TRT as menopausal. Technically her T was just ok, but was ok to prescribe for the symptoms.
    Sorry, don't mean to be a dick or anything.

    16 puts you right in the middle of normal. Not a big help if feeling crappy.
    don't get me wrong. T can be a great thing.

    Okay then they must have changed the rules since i last got test from the doc. Whats shit is how you can still be within range but have all the symptoms of low test, that sucks.

    yep it sucks. it has been changed in the last few years. Even some of the Dr mates I have say the old 'myths' about T use have largely been disparaged now. Obviously I wouldnt be using if you had a history of some Cancers in the male side of family. But the rest of the old BS more or less debunked.

    Try getting blood work first thing in the morning. If you are thinking of getting test prescribed from your GP, think again. I am on TRT, I had to see a specialist to initiate TRT, also you need to be 40+ years with Two set of blood results below the normal range.

    The testosterone thing is a beat-up. If you want to lift in GPC or fight in the UFC then bump it up. Otherwise, it's [TRT] just another foreign substance that your body will become dependent on. Shit, I've been around six for years and some slimy little quack suggested I should do TRT or my wife might leave me. "It works for me" he said. My cock is awesome, thanks. My weights are fine. If my wife leaves me its because I am a cnt. Sometimes I get tired but so does everyone.
    Without me my barbell is nothing.
