Testosterone Gel

Testosterone Gel is also known as Androgel and it basically contains testosterone. It is taken through the skin for treating low testosterone levels and related problems. It comes from the category of drugs known as androgens. Also, there are other testosterone replacement products such as Axiron, Testim, Androderm, and Fortesta. Testosterone is the key male sex hormone that maintains the normal growth and sustenance of the male sex organs and secondary sexual features.

Testosterone Gel effects

There are various uses of using testosterone gel. This basically replaces the problems that are caused by the testosterone deficiency:

  • Growth of the penis, prostate, scrotum, etc.
  • Distribution of facial, pubic, axillary and chest hair
  • Deepening of voice
  • Changes in fat distribution and muscle mass.

Testosterone deficiency in men or low production of testosterone often leads to problems such as erectile dysfunction, fatigue, reduced sexual desire, loss of energy, regression of secondary sexual features, depression, poor bone density or weakening of bones (also known as osteoporosis). However, testosterone gel can easily help you deal with all these.

Androgel/testosterone gel and other testosterone replacement substances replace the poor production of testosterone in the body. Thus, it reverses the symptoms promoted by low testosterone deficiency.
