Testosterone alternatives

Hello.  I'm a 39 y/o male with lost testosterone.  I had some bloodwork done which revealed this and symptoms of low sex drive, fatigue, etc.  My doctor put me on Android 20mg/day.  I don't have insurance so I'm paying $650/mo for these pills.  I was wondering if a comparable dosage in gel or injection form would be cheaper than the pills...  Any help would be appreciated!     - RJ

Hello,
You can consult a urologist and get prescribed testosterone replacement therapy. Testosterone replacement therapy can be prescribed as an intramuscular injection usually given on a biweekly basis, as a patch or gel placed on the skin, or as putty that is applied to the gums of the mouth.

I hope it helps. Take care and regards.
