What is best time to apply Androgel?

I know that Androgel is supposed to be applied in the morning and after a shower. I have read that it is best to apply it within 3 minutes of drying off if possible, so that is what I do. The problem is that I exercise in the mornimg at different times and for different durations each day. This results in me applying the Androgel at between 8 am and 10 am. Today I was unusually late and didn't apply it until 11:30 am, but this was the first time that it was after 10 am. Yesterday I had to leave the house early and did it at 7:30.

Is this a problem? I used to shower before bed, but since using Androgel, I have changed that to morning so that I don't have to apply it hours after showering or in the evening. Does using it at varying times like I do cause any bad effects?

Re: What is best time to apply Androgel?

I have been searching for the answer to my question on the web, but so far have not found any discussion on it. However, I have found some interesting other thoughts on the application of Androgel or Testim. These are some things that different men have said was recommended by their doctors.

Apply within 3 monutes of drying off after a shower. He didn't say why, but I am assuming that it has something to do with the skin pores being open and maybe absorbing more of the T.

Don't apply where there is a lot of hair, as it lessens absorbtion.

Apply the excess on another part of the body, like the sides, instead of just washing it off of the hands.

Apply on the inside and front of the thighs. I guess this is because it is a large muscle mass.

I may have seen some of these on healthboards, so pardon me if I have stolen your recommendations without credit. I didn't bookmark any of these discussions.

Does anyone have any thoughts on any of these?
