I have had a problem with libido since I was about 15-16. I told my doctors this for YEARS and they told me that I'm fine. I have taken 4 blood test...one when I was 19, one when I was 21, and two this year. I have always come up with super low free testosterone, below average.
NOW, I am going to get on testosterone, but I am very, very concerned that I had a testosterone deficiency and thats why my genitals never grew.
My question is, if I get back on a testosterone supplement, could I experience some growth, or has my body aged too much?
Hi there, thank you for posting your question. My area of expertise is in human sexual dysfunction. I hope I can be of some small help to you.
Growth, as in stature is governed, not by testosterone but human growth hormone (HGH)I don't think that testosterone replacement therapy at this stage will effect the development of your genitals but that remains to be seen. It will boost your libido.
As you know, this is a highly complex area of medicine. For example you need to know why were your testosterone levels so low? How is your pituitary function? I hope you are under the care of a specialist endocrinologist and that you do well.
