Question Just started Testosterone injections, question?

Hi, I just started T replacement, (once a month) on May 27. I have yet to see any improvement on my libido or help with e.d I was just wondering how long it took anyone else out there to feel an improvement? Maybe I am just being overly anxious, but I would like to see results.

Are these IM injections? If so, once a month is going to bring you way down especially once your body stops producing. Ideally, at minimum I would say inject once a week. Its common to see people do once every two weeks, but too much roller coaster. Some even split it into every few days.

Most common starting place for IM injections is Test Cypionate at 100mg/week.

I started my injections about 3 weeks ago, was on androgel before that.

Yes, its Im. I had a feeling it was still too low. I will ask my Dr. about changing my dosage and frequency. Thanks for your help

It takes about 4 injections to reach a normal level in your body. However on a monthly schedule, you will never reach that normal level except for a few daysa month. Definitely go for the weekly injections.
