    I have been using Testosterone gel and have noticed that my balls are getting smaller. Have any of you guys had this experience and if so will they eventually stop shrinking? I have low testosterone levels and have to use the stuff

    The same happens when guys uses steroids. If your doctor prescribed the gel, he would probably tell you to use it for 6 or 8 weeks on and then 6 or 8 weeks off the stuff. You should tell Dr, maybe he will give you something else when your finished, and yes, your balls should return to normal size a couple of weeks post use.

    I kind of hate this one. Two things happen when testosterone output falls. The first is that an MD prescribles testosterone gel. The second is that after a protracted period of time you will need a series of shots of Beta Chorionic Gonadotropin to tell your balls to get their act together.

    The main problem is that in most cases testosterone replacement is not done correctly. The maintenance of sexual function etc. is not testosterone based but is in fact DHT based. The body is very sensitive and will quickly down regulate with conventional testosterone. It takes a far higher dosage of DHT because the DHT is a byproduct of a reduction by the enzyme 5-alpha reductase. Unless the dosage is very high the body does not recognize DHT supplementation. There is a DHT gel, but, based on old information most MD's won't use it. You may need the gonadotropin shots weekly for about 4 months. In the future, the best rule if they are going to do this is to teach you to give yourself injections. Depo Testosterone (Testosterone Cypionate) is a long lasting ester and is usually taken either once or twice per week. You would then spend three weeks on testosterone and the fourth on Gonadotropin.
    That stops the testicular atrophy. Again 95% of the MD's doing male HRT do not do this one well. This is what the best of them in fact do. . . .
