Testosterone injections are all the rage right now, including for women. Many testosterone clinics operate on performing just one duty–to dispense as much testosterone as they can. Please be careful with this. There are many potential side effects to taking testosterone–acne, mood instability, enlarged breasts, shrunken testicles, and slight risk for prostate cancer. You should have 2 confirmed low levels before starting. If you’re tired, it could be something else besides low testosterone. Be wary of testosterone clinics.
