    heapsreal. I have a question which maybe you know the answer too. Why dont I hear of testerstone implants in guys? as a girl my specialist at one point inserted one due to my low testosterone. Why I dont I hear guys talking about these? Wouldnt that give off a stable amount of testosterone?

    They do have implants but i think in the Scheme of things it seems regular injections are the preferred method going by many patients. I think anything that is long lasting as in implants or long lasting injections, theres just too many peaks and dips before the next treatment so testosterone levels arent steady and fluctuate too much. With the creams and other transdermals it seems many guys just dont absorb them well or they just dont increase testosterone enough. Thats my understanding. Here in australia though docs only seem interested in creams and gels and arent interested in the prefferred method of injections as its heavily scrutinized and probablt tarnished by the bodybuilding culture/ drugs in sport type stuff, so now guys get to grow old with all the low testosterone symptoms which many docs treat with antidepressants, sounds familiar hey?? lol.
