low testosterone/inbalance hormones

Im currently 20 years old and still experiencing severe boil/acne problems. Ive tried most popular products out there such as proactiv, clean and clear, skin id, nanocleanse ect... Also been experiencing low sex drive, sexual life not same, alot of stress, some random changes in mood stuff like that. Ive been doing some research to find out that most likely the cause to my concerns are low testosterone/inbalanced hormones. Ive been looking for some type of supplements but im afraid i buy something that wont work as ive already wasted hundreds buying multiple step products that dont work, is there anyone who have similar related problems? Is there any type of pills that worked for you? If so let me know what works best on your experience. I thought about going to GNC and ask for some testosterone booster or something to balance out my hormomnes but i thought ill ask here first.

Thanks in advance!

Hi,
    This is only my advice, that at your age unless you have any medical issues that prevents your body from producing T, you should not think of hormone supplementation. In a healthy body, if you supplement hormone, the body will shut off its natural production, which will have long term ill effects. Your acne is an indication that your body is producing T and do not worry much about removing them, since it is a hall mark of youth fullness. Take less oily food items to reduce acne.There will be a difference in sexual interest from days of puberty to adult hood, which is what you are experiencing now.If you have stress, learn to relax and take things easy in life. Take balanced food and do moderate exercise, you should be Ok.

Take care,

Well i do think im not producing enough testosterone. For being 20 i still have alot more of puberty in my opinion. Even if i work out  with alot of proteins and  body building supplements such as creating in pills or drink i didnt gain muscle or strenght at all, i felt weak all the time and gave up after 2 months of everyday workout and no results. My biggest concern is just the inbalanced hormones and low sex drive. It may be a rare case that at my age i have low testosterone but i know everything is possible. Idk i just see every other guy out there naturally man grown at my age then i am.

Hi,
   Ok, in that case, what you should do is to consult an Endocrinologist and find out why you are having delayed puberty. You are right in that everything is possible, but all that I have to tell you is to take appropriate steps only after consulting a specialist doctor and not based on just intuitive diagnosis.

Thanks for the advice, i will look into getting my health insurance active and start checking up on my health issues asap. Dont want to risk buying a product that might make things worst for me later on in life.
