Well that is the 64 thousand dollar question, isn't it?
I am currently doing just that although for different reasons. I can have sex with my wife using trimix, but I don't really want to, I have no drive. I am more interested in treating my osteopenia (early osteoporosis) which I found out about 2 years ago when I discovered I had low T and my depression which has definately worsened over the past few years. I got 4 opinions on the T issue: My internist was against it, my operating urological surgeon, local urologist, and now endocrinologist are all for it. I don't want to look like the hunchback of Notre Dame 20 years from now, I've seen the pain these people with no spinal bone live with. That's why I'm trying it. The way my endocrinologist put it, "testosterone doesn't cause prostate cancer, it will just make it show up sooner if there are some dormant prostate cancer cells still there." How much sooner he didn't say but he gave me the impression the prostate cancer was coming back sooner or later if it was still there regardless of T. So I've had 0 psas for almost 4 years, and my serum T is in the 200-300 range, and my free T is in the abnormally low range. And I don't feel good, so I'm gonna try T for a few months...
My age= 52 when this all happened.
