Has anyone else tried the patch? My tolerance for opiates got to high so they want me to try this patch now. Now sinemet worked wonders untill I got augmentation but I had never slept better...Just thinking outloud again.

My doctor showed me a few studies that seem to say testosterone does not increase the risk of prostate problems. I was worried about that statment and did some research and it appears that estrogen is starting to look like the culprit, one double blind study had the testosterone group come out with ...

I have had a lot of replies about hormone replacement therapy on another board and strangely enough they guys with testosterone problems in a lot of cases seem to be on pain meds for rls type pain. If anyone is interested I might type up some stuff from both boards and post it both places. Strage ho...

Long rant

I have been fighting thru the doctors since my last post...just a big a mess as rls to treat low testosterone. A fertility doctor cut me off completely to treat the fertility problems and let me feel like hell for 3 months despite my objections, so he told me either take his treatment or leave...I l...
