 5  Low test levels Some acne. Sex drive is amazing. Less mood swings. Blood pressure is normal again. Feel like I'm 20 again. More energy. M 44 2 years

 1  Delayed Puberty I am sure this drug works great for low testosterone levels in adulthood, but DO NOT TAKE THIS FOR DELAYED PUBERTY. It ruined my life, my personality and my growth. I was predicted to become 1.85 and this thing has prematurely closed my growth plates. I used to have a best friend whom i did literally everything with, we were so close, and when I started this all I felt was rage and emptiness. Do not take this for delayed puberty! I thought it would be great and I would finally grow and my penis would develop. Well I did grow and my penis developed but it completely screwed me up mentally. Wait until you are 18! to take this. It ruined me and left em with only anger when I used to be one of the kindest, most peaceful little boys ever who had a best friend named zac whom i have lost now due to the rage this testosterone shots caused. Testosterone is not dangerous for adults! But it is very dangerous for children, especially for kick starting puberty. Now my personality is ruined. I took 100mg once a month. They did not even schedule it right. You would need to take it atleast weekly to have steady levels so my mood was all over the place. The half life is only 5-6 days, so by day 30 I would have almost none in my blood. 25mg a week would have been much better. The best would have been none though, as it just left me with rage and stole my personality from me. For adults it is very safe, but not for kids! M 6 months
100mg 1X M
 4  low testosterone Headache, ringing in the ears. I take 1.5ml every three weeks. The first day I normally get a headache. After this I feel great for about two weeks, then I start to get depressed and irritable. M 48 1 years
 5  Hypogonadism None really. Once in a blue moon I inject into a nerve? And the leg is a bit sore. I use ice to numb the area before injections which seems to help. I do weekly injections and it improves my mood, energy, sex drive and clears away the mental fog I had. M 49 1 years
 5  FTM High cholesterol (but I also had a genetic predisposition for it). Sweat more. I'm using a patch now and have more energy, now that hormone levels are consistent. On the shots, the levels drop before the next shot. Increased muscle mass w/o working out, lower voice, fat redistribution, hair, more energy. M 20 3 years
 1  Hypogonadism Depression, anxiety, panic attacks, paranoia, persistent erotic fantasies. Mild occasional preapism, increases in blood pressure and cholesterol. Heart arrhythmias. Sensations of excess body heat. Fluid retention. Impaired feeling of overall wellbeing. I had bilateral testicular damage in late teenagehood. While the patch produces increase in physical strenght, stamina and muscle mass, as well as some loss in bodyweight - the side effects of testosterone, especially on mental health and body fluid, are simply not worth it. I am staying off this stuff for good, and prefer the (far more mild) effects of hypogonadism instead. I wish I never have taken the drug. M 24 2 months
 1  increase height growth depression, loss of concentration, attention, and focus, lowering of voice, slight aggression, decrease in fine motor skills (in particular, handwriting became sloppier). I was prescribed Depo-Testosterone at 15 years of age to increase height growth due to short stature. Initially, I did not connect my symptoms with the introduction of taking the Depo-Testosterone, but once I suspected a possible connection, I mentioned it to my endocrinologist, who, after a while, switched me to Depo-Estradiol. Once I discontinued the Depo-Testosterone, I noticed an overall (though not complete) improvement in my symptoms. F 34 1 years
 5  Sex Change none unpleasant Voice drop, libido increase, hair growth, and fat redistribution occurred. M 21 44 days
 5  To increase libido. None. I take it to counter the sexual side effects of antidepressants. It helps me recover from an orgasm. By the next day I'm interested in sex again. Without it, after orgasm it would be 4 day's before my sex drive returned to normal. Does not help with erection problems. It is very cheap if you get the injectable type. After injection you may feel a little better, but more often than not, the feeling better part slowly builds over a two week period (you cannot give yourself a shot and immediately expect sex). M 55 8 months

DEPO-TESTOSTERONE  (TESTOSTERONE CYPIONATE):  This medication is used in men who do not make enough of a natural substance called testosterone. In males, testosterone is responsible for many normal functions, including growth and development of the genitals, muscles, and bones. It also helps cause normal sexual development (puberty) in boys. Testosterone belongs to a class of drugs known as androgens. It works by affecting many body systems so that the body can develop and function normally. Testosterone may also be used in certain adolescent boys to cause puberty in those with delayed puberty. It may also be used to treat certain types of breast cancer in women.   (Sources: U.S. Centers for Medicare Services, FDA)
