Testosterone question

I was diagnosed with Klinefelter's Syndrome a few years ago. I started taking androgel 1.5 every day in 2004. About a month ago, my wife left me and I stopped. Mainly I stopped because I can't deal with the sexual urge. Let's face it, taking Testosterone every day makes you horny and not having someone to screw with means you have to resort to masturbation, which is messy and...disturbing. Ok maybe I have some issues.

But here's the real question. What will happen to me if I stay off the Testosterone? I'm taking calcium supplements for the bone density, I exercise and eat right. Won't I just go back to the way I was before? Smooth skinned (less hairy), emotional sensitive guy with a low sex drive?

Re: Testosterone question

My husband has low testosterone 166....fatigued, low sex drive, no appetite. He gives himself an injection about every week and he feels so much better...not too mention a great sex life now. But he has high hemoglobin so he went off of it for about a month and it doesn't take long at all for his levels to drop back down and for him to start feeling like crap. So he went back on it.
