Default testosterone shot

I'm 64 and I didn't take a testosterone shot for 3 weeks then I was tested and the test said my Testosterone was at 300 which is normal and my doctor said I should keep taking the shots every two weeks. I think this sounds pretty dumb to me. So I take the shot and the next day I have problems urinating and that was a week ago and still have problems urinating. I think I should take care of my testosterone the natural way and maybe get a different doctor.

I think that the best way to take testosterone is sublingually, daily in a very low dosage. This way you won't be jumping all over the place in your levels. A doctor that does bio-identical hormone replacement can do this for you.. although the testosternone they use is is likely the same as in the shot as the sublingual pill.. just delivered in a more sane way. Even a topical transdermal patch application is likely better.

It seems that your urinary symptoms should wear off as your testosterone levels decrease, if indeed the shot did cause this... I suspect that the shot did not though but who can say for sure? Get your urine checked for infection first off. You may have something else going on.

testosterone has a really short half life. If you really need it, you are better with the creams which provide a steady state low dose.

Are there any natural testosterone boosters? Something that helps your body begin producing higher amounts of testosterone?
