    Yes I feel so much better all round it’s definitely helped physically and mentally.

    I did think about the skewed results but I figure honesty is the best policy and I’ll tell them exactly what I’m doing

    My gp didn’t refer me to a endo, he just prescribed it himself after 1 blood test that came back at 5.1nmol

    You're right
    But the only issue with that is the doc will likely ask you to stop self medicating to do their own blood test
    From my experience, trt is the last resort and they like to explore every possible reason for low test
    Show them your own blood results, you may get lucky with a good doc

    I’ve sent my gp the results of 2 private blood test and the gp sent me for one herself all of which came back 7.6 and under.

    Like I said I’ve started myself on 150wk test and even with this dose I’m getting sore nipples which I’m using an AI for could this be because my test levels were so low before I started?
