    Question Testosterone??? good or bad!

    okay so i feel like a shmuk. but here goes anyway- just over two years ago i got out of a really bad relationship(12 yrs) and the self esteem was shot. thought i worked thru most of the garbage but apparently not. now that i've gone back to school the old feelings that i don't measure up are creeping back. could be being surrounded by so many young bodies. ?? iam very strong especially given my size but... after a c-section and a couple of ab surgeries and the old chest shrinking after 2 kids now the esteem is in the toilet again. have a B.F. but he isn't around much 1-2 a month (well over a year in) and that doesn't help. now i've just found out that my testosterone levels are low so i'm on med's for it(haven't started yet) so will that help of will there be new problems with not so nice side effects. what is it going to do to my body i really don't want to look lets say like less of a woman. ? any ideas???

    I usually don't come into the women's section, but I saw test and thought maybe I could help .. anyways, what meds exactly did they give you, with the potency. I'm almost positive they wouldn't give you anything too strong.. But to answer your q (but not really) it's good and bad, if you have natrually low test, probably good.

    Andriol 40mg. normal levels for women are suppose to be 1-12 most women are around 9. i am at 1.9. so ? i don't know! i am pretty small so i don't know if that dose will have many side effects for me or not. just not sure what to expect! kinda worried.

    It's not to potent, should be okay.. Anyways if you notice anything you don't like just stop, the half life on this particular steroid is very short, around 4 days..

    so i won't turn into like she man or something. cause my esteem is hitting pretty low right now. now not saying i'm ugly or anything or i'm not in good shape cause that would be lying. but the chest is already lacking so if it shrinks anymore i think i'll cry. that's the only thing that i don't like about myself so thats okay. but .. anyway i'm just a little freaked out is all.

    Well it is a possibility.. but unlikely. (The breast thing, not the she-man thing lol).. I say use it for a few days and pay close attention to your body, I doubt anything negative will happen, but if it does just stop and things will go back to normal in a few days. We're both probably being a little paranoid, it's a VERY low dose.. How often are you supposed to take them?

    LoL, boob god.. I pray to him too! Anyways 1 everyday isn't much at all.. (This is a little off topic) But I've heard guys trying to take those as anabolic steroids and they had to take 15-20 a day just to see any gains (because they're so weak), so 1/day should give you just enough to bring you up to the normal healthy level...

    okay so i thought that i should post an update to this thread. so its been twenty days that i've been on this stuff 10 more daily and then i drop down the dose, so here it is... nothing bad has happened yet! i'm not quite so tired but that could be due to the fact that i aced all my senarios and exams, sex drive gone up okay that could be bad(it was never low to start) but other than that its all good so far. my prayers to the boob god must have worked lol. and the god of unhairiness and the god of female vocalcords!! lol. so i guess testosterone-good.

    Jenn, you've got me tearing... LOL I really enjoyed that post. Thanks for sharing, being honest and open. I'm positive your not the only woman that has been prescribed in that manner. Have your abs (6 pack) developed more because of the test?

    There was actually an article in this months edition of Analog Science Fiction and Fact magazine (in the fact section) about testosterone, anyways, made for good reading all around and you chicks do need some too.

    Don't like to advertise but its on the shelves now if you want to take a read I found it interesting anyway, especially some of the info about the synthetics (steroids), I'll warn you it is a little science heavy but there are diagrams too and I managed to understand it even being a dumb jock type.
