Androgel women

Common Questions and Answers about Androgel women


Avatar f tn He immediately went to the Dr.-she checked his Testosterone level. Said it was low-105. Put him on Androgel. about 1 week later he started having the worst anxiety. (NEVER had anxiety before) He went back to Dr. and she also put him on Wellbutrin. This made the anxiety worse-switched him to Celexa. This gave him zero sex drive, so he switched to Prystyq to help with the anxiety.- which has not gotten any better during this time-it has gotten worse.
Avatar m tn So I was pretty excited about something that sounded like it could solve some problems. He prescribed AndroGel, a topical gel that is rubbed into the chest and upper arms, 5 mg per day. I did tell him about my past sexual behavior problems. Two weeks into it, I start getting really horny.
Avatar n tn I am on Androgel for testesterone replacement therapy. The instructions say not to apply to my penis. I have done it sometimes and get an erection. Why should I not do this?
Avatar f tn Libido in both men and women is related closely to the level of testosterone in the blood (yes women have testosterone produced largely by the adrenal glands and men have so-called female hormones in their system). Testosterone level in the blood can be increased by a number of medications (androgel applied to the skin of the stomach, shots in the buttocks, etc.) all of which require a doctor's prescription.
Avatar n tn i have one that is on the front of testis faced thord the penis it did hurt for a long time like 3year the pain has gone away since useing androgel but since useing androgel seem to have testicular atropey.a little while ago i noticed a lump in one of the cords the size of a bb. im hopeing to get a uratasound soon so that i can understand what is going on down thare my dr did not tell me about that and it makes mad i did know that thay could do that.
484508 tn?1290014144 I had been on Androgel for low testosterone, but it did nothing, so I started testosterone therapy replacement using pellets, a newer procedure. I am 65. After 7 days, I was hit with overwhelming anxiety, panic, the yawns. Today it is a bit better- Today is day 8. I had no idea that testosterone replacement could cause anxiety. I took the stuff because I had anxiety, that Celexa had done a tremendous job of helping. I had to take a Klonopin last night because I was so anxious.
Avatar m tn * Concentration issues I should note that I had two episodes of unprotected sex within the last few months, but they seem to have been low risk encounters based on what I know about these women and what they have told me. All STD tests including HIV have come back negative as well. I know one of the women had Lyme disease - there's apparently some new research that it can be transmitted sexually, but the CDC seems firm that it cannot. I just want to know what the hell is wrong with me.
Avatar n tn Things like zinc, vitamin E, L-Glutamine, L-Arginine, L-Lysine and ginseng are also good supplements to try. Despite women TTC being told to cut back on caffeine, some studies have shown that caffeine on the male's part helps to increase the motility of sperm. All of these supplements can be found at any drug store, walmart, etc. Some places like GNC may carry an all in one supplment that contain these same ingredients.
222369 tn?1274478235 So guys, it may be worth a doctors visit to have a blood test. There's quizzes on androgel and androderm's websites that may help diagnose it.
Avatar m tn low T 1 1/2 yrs ago, borderline several months later and then borderline again recently. He put me on 5gm. Androgel which I have been on for 1 week and 2 days now. I have not noticed any improvement as of yet, though my urologist mentioned that it could take 3 weeks before I saw any benefit and would probably want to continue the use of Levitra until that time. Is this true, normal or am I not going to see a benefit from this medication?
Avatar m tn She put me on a estrogen spray (evamist) which I spray on the inside of my left arm 2 sprays every night and the she put me on Androgel ( testosterone ). Its a gel and I use 1 pump every other night and apply it to the inside of my right arm. I am scared to take these drugs and have stopped taking them like I am suppose to.
Avatar m tn So as of now, after MUCH trial and error, I'm on the following meds; testosterone gel (not androgel, it's not good for women), birth control pills with the highest estrogen and lowest progesterone, Wellbutrin ( for depression), Concerta (ADHD).
Avatar f tn I've been using a testosterone gel for about 2 months, and within the last 2 weeks it's as if the clouds have parted and I have hope again (and no mannish hair growth or deep voice, etc!). I know of many women find relief from our symptoms from estrogen alone, but this doctor explained that the importance of testosterone for women is VERY under recognized, and some of the testosterone naturally "changes" into estrogen in our body.
Avatar m tn About two years ago I was diagnosed with andropause.The uroligist gave me androgel 5mg.He said it might help with the anxiety/Depression I have had for most of my life. The first dose made me feel incredible for most of the day,but days after that panned out.Long story short.Now,any time I take any form of testosterone it makes my anxiety/depression worse.Even at 1.25mg of androgel.
Avatar m tn in the pencil as women will pass on him every time. Using testosterone replacement solutions like Androgel have a major side-effect; They grow man-breasts on you! Can somebody offer any advice on this situation? I'm 50 years old, single and just lost a girl friend that I was able to have sex with but like the other gentleman, The width and size of the penis extension is dramatically reduced from long before this situation.
Avatar n tn he was given testosterone shots but had an allergic reaction to them (massive swelling at injection site) and had to wait for four months for the a drug company to agree to supply his with androgel. he began the androgel around two months ago and he is getting acne, and mood swings, but his libido (sex drive) is coming back.
303824 tn?1294875001 his testosterone level has plummetted and no amount of androgel has been able to help him with this. Further his desire or appetite for sex is completely gone. He looks at a naked woman like she were a man or a does nothing for him... this medication definately has wrecked our relationship. At this point, I am 42 and moving on... his addiction was hard enough to handle now to realize that he will never get off the supposed the cure that has destroyed our sex life is just too much.
Avatar n tn My sex drive was actually fine when using Androgel, however the androgel didn't seem to boost my test levels very high (still had low energy and depression). So the doc switched me to testosterone cypionate injections. I felt great energy wise but my sex drive went to nothing. Both my doc and my urologist said there is no way the testosterone would cause that. But I know my body, and I know that's what did it (similar to the 1-AD).
1616953 tn?1443839111 I've put off doing hormone injections. Kind of wished I could go back to Androgel and just slap the stuff on in the morning rather then punch a needle into my leg every 7 to 10 days. After listening to Dr Wasurung about his protate cancer castration and going on estrogen I guess there is some worry that testosterone is at fault for my BPH. And am I creating it or prostate cancer? And as Dr Mattison said the side effect of injections is massive high levels at first.
Avatar n tn It may be covered by Blue Cross/Blue Shield, but even if it isn't (mine isn't covered by my insurance), it probably isn't far from the co-pay for AndroGel. That's mostly because AndroGel went through extensive testing to become a name brand product (to the tune of tens of millions), so they are trying to recoup that expense before it goes generic, which usually erodes sales.
Avatar n tn RE: HEY BUDDY WHO ARE YOU ANYWAYS. YOU SOME KIND OF DOCTOR OR SOMETHING. Attacking someone personally is a sign of a weak mind. RE: I THINK UR A NOBODY. HCG SHOTS AND STEROIDS ARE NOT HARMFUL UNLESS YOU USE HIGH DOSES. Wrong. Many endocrinologists are wary of even bumping up testosterone a small amount in borderline cases of low test. RE: AND WHAT IM TALKING ABOUT USING ISNT A VERY HIGH DOSE. For the record, why exactly are you interested in the recreational use of steroids?
Avatar n tn He even has women on progesterone producing levels as high as 18. Mine was .08 in October and after an increase and a change in the delivery system, it rose only to 1.8. The doctor suspected that perhaps my body was using the progesterone to make cortisol. My stress level was high, so this is possible. It is my understanding that high thyroid levels can come about from low progesterone levels.
Avatar n tn I honestly have no idea what is causing the imbalances and it's bothering me a lot. Any ideas? I'm thinking about stopping the TRT. I am on the 5mg androgel gel. It helps my mood, but I don't want to further complicate my condition if the androgel isn't even fixing the problem. Is that a bad idea? I take a daily vitamin (Men's One a Day, Vit. E 45 IU, Zinc 15mg). Is that enough for my zinc and vitamin E? Should I start taking HCG? Will that fix the problem?
1216523 tn?1285113808 Should I call his doctor - who - by the way - gives him some ridiculous cream - Androgel???? So- he rubs this crap on himself everyday in addition to all the injectables and pills. Man, he has that doctor snowed! I figure he might not talk to me b/c of confidentiality and all but - I suppose I could tell him what is going on. Oh man - my husband will freak if I do that.
Avatar n tn The oral medication cured that and the mood swings disappeared. I was on Androgel for a time, but there is a caveat about that. Being a topical testosterone it can rub off on your wife while being intimate and cause her problems. I know of one woman who was so affected. Perhaps a consultation with your husband's urologist would be in order. We had to work with mine for a time to find what was right for me.
Avatar m tn 7)did not notice testis pulling tight or feeling less full or soft till i started androgel thay did hang down most of the time if i was cold thaty pull up.since i've quit using the androgel thay seem to hang down .i feel like if i was kicked in the balls it would not hurt like it would have before and i did have pain i n my left testisicl for about 3 years .but after starting the androgel and a cleanse for yeast the pain has gone.
Avatar m tn I was taking the drug Androgel and figured that since I was taking testosterone I'd might as well work out, since it's like an anabolic steroid. I got much bigger, even though from research I've done there's no way that it can have anabolic steroid effects. This would explain why it goes away after awhile, as it takes about three weeks for a muscle that been pulled to heal.
Avatar n tn I never seem to see other women with this problem even women much older than me. I am so angry that I have to change the way I dress as I am so embarrassed to be seen like this. I am encouraged to read all the ideas and will start to try a few. Surgery is not an option as I believe the scars are pretty horrendous.
Avatar n tn I would imagine that it would not be a huge deal since HCG is a natual occuring hormone during pregnancy and pregnant women most likely take hormone therapy without issues.
